Only thing that keeps me from that are that: a) I'm incredibly shy. I can't look a girl (even one in a restaurant, for instance) and not look away and have my face turn red. b) I've been a solitary/small group kinda guy my whole life. So meeting girls at my age generally involves larger amounts of people than I'm accustomed to. If anyone has seen topics I've made in here before, I had a massive crush on a girl who I swear was from a dream. But she and I had a falling out and then her boyfriend only further made me seem like a jackass to her, so that killed every chance I had with her. I have a lot of heart and personality to show once I get comfortable with someone but breaking that initial shyness is very, very difficult to me. Probably been asked a hundred billion times, but what can I do that will help me become more open, and not as shy around women? Thanks for any help you all can offer!
