Any tips on getting over fear of rejection? It's turning into sort of a problem for me.. whenever there's a girl I want to ask out, I never actually ask her out. I'm always way to scared of being turned down, that I screw myself over, and ALWAYS end up regretting it. Whenever I'm about to ask out my 'crush', so to speak, something else always comes out of my mouth. Or nothing at all. Any tips? Any help is much appreciated
Getting over your fear
Relax. It's the best possible thing to do. Take a deep breath before engaging in a situation with a possible mate, and go with it. You don't have to be Romeo, just be yourself.
Confidence is the one thing that most women will find attractive in a man, take some time to look yourself in the mirror one morning, and outline all the good traits about yourself. Don't let yourself back down, once you get to the point of starting the conversation, it usually goes all downhill from there. If she doesn't like you, then fine, you probably won't know her for any extended time in your life anyway, so don't sweat it.
You could also have a mutal friend introduce you, to help break the ice. It's always easier to be yourself when you have someone you're already comfortable with around.
You'll be fine, just keep a good attitude.
there was an article on this site that i read, but i can't find it, so there's this one i found instead. not exactly the same thing but i'm sure it'd help
essentially you have to push yourself out of your comfort zone and force yourself to face your fear
