    I have never really been the sort of guy that exudes confidence, and usually i've always been very reserved, low self-esteem (self conscious) and not a lot of confidence.

    Don't value myself, my appearance or my own worth. I've never really felt that physically I am desirable to women (particularly of my age).

    In other areas of my life I'm sort of steady away:- I've got a degree, I'm moderately intelligent, witty, ambitious and career driven.

    It's just, I've never felt wanted or loved. Never had the girls swooning or otherwise giving on the fly remarks about me or my appearance. Funnily enough I see it happening to other guys from an outsiders view.

    Recently, I got a new haircut and started styling it differently for a change. I find it quite refreshing and it is very flattering to know and feel a lift in my mood.

    I've also noticed (or I think), girls tend to glance at me much more. I see women sort of looking over, or engaged in conversations and following my movement. Does this generally mean they find me attractive? Do you think such a small change can make a big difference to a person's appeal?

    Also; most of these girls are randomer's in the street. I've also had numerous people comment on my hairstyle and how it suits me (Male and Female).

    I used to find it difficult to accept compliments- because i used to think they were jut been polite for the sake of it- but its getting easier

    i definitely think a haircut can change appeal.
    it's not just about your actual appearance (although sometimes a new haircut can really change a person's face) but sometimes because you feel better about yourself, you give off a different impression. so maybe because you have put more effort into your appearance, you feel more confident and that usually does attract people.

    Well the placebo effect could give you more confidence and the new hairstyle could attract attention.
