Dating a guy with low self confidence
In fact, having low or no self-esteem can seriously derail your love life in the following ways: You let guys treat you like sh*t.
You’re going to get taken advantage of because if you don’t know your own worth, no guy will.
Get out your magnifying glass and see if any of the behaviors outlined below resonate for you. Men and women understandably get turned off by extreme clinginess or neediness because they are looking for an equal and a romantic partner; they aren’t looking to take care of someone else as if that individual were a child or a psychotherapy client.
Men and women want someone who complements their life, not someone who drains their energy.
They don’t put any work into managing the processes of their thoughts and their minds and therefore approach life with a great deal of fear and paranoia. Validation can come in the form of compliments or acceptance and is usually attained at a great cost to the person seeking it.
I have been interested in this guy going on 4 years - when we first met I was with someone but the chemistry between us was pretty obvious - it was even to the guy I was with.
This man is clearly attracted to me and likes being around me, he has invited me out, and gone out with me on several occasions, and even invited me to spend time with him at his home alone.
You allow your fear of rejection to dictate your love life. Their world doesn’t end because one person’s opinion of you doesn’t matter.
You can’t live your life being afraid to take chances. The only way it does is if you have that low of an opinion of yourself. How could you have confidence in the bedroom if you don’t have self-esteem in any other aspect of your life?
