Being shy can seriously decrease your chances of meeting girls in college. The main reason for that is that your shyness will prevent you from interacting with girls and showing them enough of yourself to make them attracted to you. However being shy is not the end of the world and there are still ways for you to get as many dates as anyone else in the college.
You will have to push yourself to start conversations with girls you meet on the daily basis: in your class, on the way to college, library, study area and anywhere else on the campus.
Don’t be afraid to get rejected
Of course, you might be afraid that girls will immediately reject you if you approach and start the conversation with them however it is completely false. Most girls on campus are friendly and it is highly unlikely that someone will react negatively if you decide to talk to them. Since you are a shy guy you will probably feel that it is wrong to talk to strangers and they are going to be annoyed by you but these are actually the thoughts that prevent you from getting the girlfriend and make you even shyer.
Practice chatting with girls on online dating websites to get over your shyness
One of the best ways to practice chatting with girls and going on the dates is by joining an online dating website. This will allow you to meet a large number of girls in a short period of time. Not only this will help you to feel more confident, it is also highly likely that you will meet a girlfriend along the way.
Work on improving yourself
Like most shy people you probably have no idea why you are shy and what can you do to become an outgoing confident guy. The simple way to gain confidence and become good with girls in college is to eliminate any shortcomings that make you shy. If you are out of shape – workout. Not really good looking – try going to the hair salon and getting a good haircut, buy some good clothes and shoes. This will significantly increase your self-esteem. If you are shy because you are poor, don’t worry much, it is fine to be poor in college or you can try getting a job after classes or during the summer break.
Yes, it might seem unfair that there are some guys who are naturally outgoing while you are even afraid to say hi to the girls in your class. However, you can change your personality by practicing the behavior you want to achieve. It is going to take time but it will make your life happier and more worth living at the end.
