    Hi there,

    I'm just looking for a little bit of advice from both girls and boys on how to overcome my fear with approaching girls in any situation.

    Going to an all-boys school has made it quite tough on me when trying to talk and approach girls. I'm 17 and in so many occasions a girl has been interested in me but i haven't had the confidence to approach her.

    Any advice would be wonderful to me.

    Thanks Guys..

    Talk to them as you would any other person? :laugh: I understand where you're coming from, but there's not much more to it than that. Stop internally alienating women

    Once i talk to them i'm completely fine, but i think its just the thought of being rejected most of all just doesn't help at all.

    As you start meeting more people I find that that feeling goes away. It's normal

    Be happy within yourself, have the right beliefs (looks don't matter that much), do things that make you happy, have friends, think positively, go to the gym, focus on yourself, be proud of yourself.

    Approach more women and have female friends, this will in turn make you more confident with women.
