Dating : How can I approach guys without being desperate/weird?
I’m kind of terrified of dating apps. I much prefer meeting people face to face and have been pushing myself to attend more social events.
I joined a couple clubs in my area, and have been going to bars and stuff to try and meet guys. I’m slowly becoming more confident and have definitely made great new friends through these activities. My issue is I always chicken out or make an absolute tit out of myself in conversation when I’m talking to a guy I like. I get shy and dumb and make bad jokes and generally kill the atmosphere by being a tool. I generally don’t know how to flirt so I don’t really know how to let a guy know that I’m interested in him in /that/ way but I don’t want to come across as desperate and clingy either.
I guess I’m looking for any tips on how to flirt? Or if you’re a dude, what makes you think a girl is hitting on you?
