So doing pretty good at the NoFap challenge and I'm want to ask an interesting question that has been around me for a while now. It's about the "Fake confidence" skill. It is really helpful ? For me specifically , I always struggle with pick-up since I didn't have a girlfriend from before. so it's hard for me to assume that I can simply approach a girl and pretend I'm cool no matter the result. I was always a guy about sticking to it's real persona , but one of my friend's really inspired me with his skill to show confidence in stuff he doesn't know about. Okay, that kinda doesn't make sense , but his sheer confidence he emits, really gets to me sometimes. Anyway, what do you think about Fake Confidence, is it helpful for self improvident ? Update: So here and there I find that "fake confidence" isn't the best way to go for every1. The real question behind my post was : Where do find confidence where their seem to be no success The best one I'm considering for myself is "To BELIEVE even when everything proove the opposite." as being said by Daijimbo. It kinda reminds of the hero's in anime that never give up. Gives me that burning passion to get back up and try again !!. What do you think is better for you ? "Fake Confidence" OR "Confidence Even if everything proove the opposite"
