- Find your gifts and focus on them. Practice a sport you love or a craft you adore doing in your spare time. This will not only give you self-confidence by seeing yourself improve at your particular hobby, it will also give you something to talk about when meeting other Shy Dating members.
- Give a stranger a compliment. Not only will it make their day, it is guaranteed to make you walk away with a smile on your face! Who knows – you might form an unexpected friendship out of it.
- Ask questions about people in social situations. People love to talk about their lives and what’s happening in it. This will also take some of the focus off you so you won’t feel as overwhelmed meeting new people.
- Remember to breathe! Realise the whole world is not staring at you – most people are too busy looking at themselves.
EVERYONE feels self-conscious and shy at different stages of their life so don’t think you are strange for having these feelings. Shy Dating UK is here to help!
