To an extent yes, because if you're not even sure of yourself...how would the other person be sure of you ygm? It's similar to the concept of self-love.

Depends on what kind of person the other party is. I find that confidant people gravitate towards non confidant people tho...opposites attract? Again, its true for some

Aye
What in particular makes it a turn off? And would you date someone with low confidence or does lack of confidence equal an instant no?

I'd say depends on the level. Cause you don't want someone to act cocky and arrogant, but at the same time you dont want to be weighed down constantly picking them up when doubt starts creeping in.

Totally agree with this! I think it’s bad to say low confidence is an instant turn off, but I understand that a relationship isn’t really a relationship if all you do is constantly reassure your partner and keep picking them up!!

Absolutely not for me. But for most other people, yes, it's a turn off.

It comes across as creepy, guys with low self esteem are more likely to be rapist.
Well that’s a weird and untrue statement but ok😂

They're more likely to compliment a lady, but not able to accept rejection, therefore rape will happen.
Or they’d just not pursue anything with said woman? Shy and insecure guys don’t equal rapists????

As long as you like the person why not? I don't see lack of confidence as a huge problem, its something that can be slowly built up over time when you are with said person. Only issue is, some people may see it as a uh, inconvenience? Idk man, cos I never considered lack of self-confidence as a dating criteria

Your statement is very unlikely, most shy guys are creeps.
That’s generalising haha! I think shy guys are just shy, rapists are rapists.

Yep. If they lack confidence they’re probs also insecure and too clingy which can be a burden.

It is if it gives provides an impression of being awkward, insecure, creepy or desperate.
Just as being excessively confident is a turn off that usually gives the impression of arrogance, a gigantic ego, thuggish or juvenile personality.
