    I had a chat with my close female friend. We were talking about dating and relationships. She said that I'm a good looking, smart, funny, blah blah blah, why do you have such low confidence in yourself? I never really had an answer to that, but I guess it's just because I feel boring and ugly

    But it's true, my lack of confidence prevents me from asking girls out. I can't keep relying on my friend to help me pull girls because I'll have to do it myself one day.

    it's whenever I try to speak to a girl I like, I start to worry that she finds me physically repulsive or boring. I can't help it, I've grown up with such low self-esteem that this feels like second nature to me.

    But I do want to improve myself and my attitude. What measures can I take that will improve my self-confidence?

    If someone isn't interested in you, that's fine. Most people aren't attracted to most people! You only need to find 1 person who likes you. Don't feel disheartened worrying that someone doesn't like you or finds you boring.

    What makes you feel good? New or nice clothes? Taking care of yourself? Make an effort to make yourself look your best and your confidence might grow when you go out.

    You say you have a group of friends then you cannot be boring or repulsive :nah:.

    Just believe in yourself. Confidence is what attracts girls.
