Eye contact is very crucial part of social interractions...expecially with people of the opposite sex. The first impression does matter, and the way you use eye contact can determine if a girl is or isn't interested in you...that's why it's so important to know how to handle those short periods of visive communications : it can make the difference from result as a shy person, or a confident one who's not afraid of keeping an eye contact for several seconds, and eventually even smile Although I've never considered myself as a particularly nice-looking / attracting guy, in my personal experience, has happened many times that I shared repeated eye contacts with nice girls...but in none of those situations I was able to make the next step ( which is smiling, or maybe starting a conversation with her) . Instead, I've always assumed stupid postures , pretending to be disinterested , trying to look more "alpha m." and things like that. No suprises that this type of behaviuor has the opposite effect : I quickly end up to make disappear every girl that might have an interest for me. Till now, I've never had the courage to stand up, go straight to her, and presenting myself...it's something that simply looks impossible to me, I'm just too scared to do it. So my question is : for those of you who have overcomed this barrier...how did you do it?!? Did NoFap helped you to be more confident? I hope so... Because until a person do PMO, he simply doesn't need to approach a girl, because he can jerks off whenever he wants. But if this person can't reach the orgasm because he is attempting a NoFap challenge, he will be FORCED to talk to other girls : his mind will adjust, and he will do whatever it takes, to improve himself, becoming more attractive ...otherwhise, he will never satisfy his sexual urges and he'll become nevrotic . Does it make sense?
