    Too shy, nervous and/or terrified to try dating ever again. 🙁

    Most of these tips are for when you’ve already got a date, but where does a shy girl find a guy in the first place? I don’t do clubs or bars.

      I was thinking the same thing…putting yourself out there enough to get the date is the problem…like when a guy approaches you..what do you say to not seem awkward or come off as rude? Lol… that should’ve been the first tip

        right, just the other weekend,guys were mad at me because they said I was acting “brand new” or that Im “bougie”. No…im just shy, dont know what to say, and dont know how to not let it show on my face. Its not that i dont want to talk to you, its just that I cant. Im an awkward black girl. Its terrible

          Lol I so feel your pain!

    • scandalous7

      thank you ok, thank you!..not that I want one or anything. Im terrified

      Try meeting people or going to dates at the places that you already like to do/frequent. That way you’ll naturally open up. The ‘clubs or bars’ aren’t the only public places with a lot of people, and not everyone goes there or up to a certain age or stage in life.
      A lot of people act as though these places that are only open for a few hours a few days a week are the only places to meet someone. But just about everyone does go to the grocery store, mall, other public places, etc.
