The Benefits Of Confidence When Concerning Dating

May 1, 2008
One of the biggest factors in a first date that determines one's appeal is confidence. Confidence is a human characteristic that some possess, but many would be better off with perfecting the trait in question. As many find out, however, this can be a tiresome task indeed.

The number one cause for lack of confidence comes from one's self-image. If you think that you aren't the best looking, the one with the best personality, or even able to carry on an able conversation, your confidence will fall as a result. The solution is simple: find what you don't like about yourself, fix it, and then cope with what you can't fix- the sooner the better.

A good way to exert confidence in a relationship is to be three things: outgoing, talkative, and carefree. All three characteristics will give off the impression that you are confident- when in fact you might not be. Of course, being talkative and outgoing can be tough for someone new to the confidence game. If nothing else, one can always be carefree- just relax on your date, there are plenty of options should one date not work out!

Although confidence is always a good thing, it can often be confused with arrogance. If you want to impress your date, you will do good to avoid arrogance at all costs. If you appear overly confident or self centered, then it is highly likely that your date will start to lose interest. After all- who wants to carry on a conversation with someone who only cares to talk about themself?

How one lives is another big confidence killer. If you happen to have a sloppy lifestyle, shabby home, or even if you live with your parents, studies show that you are much more likely to have confidence. This is natural, and in this case, it is best to look at dating as a means of finding the "one" who sees past superficial norms society places on living arrangements. As a result, you'll likely find a more stable relationship anyhow.

Confidence also can be created by going on a date doing something you are familiar with. All too often, the first date is a new experience for those who lack confidence. Going rock climbing when you have never gone before, in this case, is a very bad idea. Instead, go to a local restaurant or engage in a physical activity that you are familiar with.

Dating enthusiasts and veterans will tell you that the more you date, the more you learn. And the more you learn, the more you can avoid dating mistakes and help improve your confidence. Whatever the case may be, only through experience will you be able to truly woo over the opposite gender as second nature.

Above all else, always try to have fun on the first date, and any dates following should you leave a good impression. Take note that a failure isn't always a setback- but just another reason to keep dating to find the special person for you. Armed with your new confidence, the chase for the "one" may now be easier than you think.
