revitalized Posted August 10, 2019 Share Posted August 10, 2019 Hello everyone im a 33 year old man who has never really been social, had very few friends and i lived relatively sheltered throughout my life. Thankfully one of the advantages of this is that i managed to take care of myself and i look around 8 years or so younger than my age. I have been good with making eye contact with women that show interest but i for the life of me cannot seem to make an approach. Perhaps this has to do with the fact that i am currently job searching after a layoff so my identity is sort of up in the air. I also fear judgement and then i go through a million questions in my head about if i should lie about my age etc. I am simply stumped in terms of Anxiety, and fear of rejection, or even asking a girl out with other people around. How can i muster up the confidence and simply not care about what others think? This crippling anxiety is destroying my ability to make new connections and any help and advice would be appreciated. I will see a cute girl and wonder if she'll be ok with my age/experience. Do i just block out any what if's and desensitize myself to rejection? Link to comment
