    judging by your pics, I think you are doing just fine in that respect. People who have little to no self-confidence don't have near naked pics up. icon_neutral.gif

    Untrue.

    People with little to no self-confidence easily put up these types of pictures to hopefully garner what little attention to that they can grab because they're so insecure about themselves, they need the praise and attention of others.

    Few get it seeking validation on RJ. Rerun this clip a few times. It's worked for generations of gay men. Including Seth MacFarlane, apparently.

    They aren't mutually exclusive. Everyone likes attention. It's just that insecure people need attention and praise of others.

    What exactly what are you looking for confidence in?

    Sarcasm is supposed to be obvious, though. You really did come off as insecure.icon_confused.gif

    Self confidence is to be happy with who you are, not who you want to be, not what someone else wants you to be. You are you, no better, no worse, Accept the person you are and be proud of what you have accomplished.

    Depends really... for work and school, I'm always really confident; but in regards to my personal life, though I can fight off foes and tyrants well enough, there isn't much I feel confident in that won't end up sexual. I'm confident, that gays will call me a lesbian-at-heart.

    I have had confidence issues for a while. Mostly it's centered around my body or my acne. I've been really working at it and have been so much happier with myself and life. You just need to do things that make you happy, dress how you want to dress, listen to whatever song you want to listen to. You need to be yourself and love yourself. What you feel about yourself is far more important than what those around you think. It's your life, choose to be happy and free.

    Just be honest with yourself...don't be judgmental, arrogant etc.,.

    when people are judgmental or arrogant, usually leads them to make some mistakes...& when someone make some mistakes...they lose confidence in themselves!

    So, be honest, don't lie to yourself...this will definitely increases the confidence in yourself!

    Cuando123 saidGo to the gym, work out and look good!


    Knowing where you were in the beginning, then going to the gym and working out serves as an achievement... an improvement to health, look and vitality. Definitely a confidence builder!

    It's easy to be confident on RJ because you don't even need to imagine the other posters in their underwear, you can actually see it icon_razz.gif

    Honestly, fake it. I used to be so self-conscious that I couldn't keep eye contact with anyone. One day I decided just to fake confidence and today I could stand in front of a crowd of thousands and give you a speech just fine. Actually, my job consists of dealing with hundreds of irate people a day so I've definitely come a long way.

    If you fake something long enough it will eventually become real. Almost like if you tell a little white lie so often you forget if it's actually the truth or not.


    Edit: Damn this thread is old - whoops. OP is probably a hermit by now.

    This is 100% accurate. Just look at Instagram. Some fags I know who are so insecure post EVERYTHING on there - them at the gym, posing wherever they are etc. There's a constant desire for many of these guys for attention and validation.

    Just be confident, like Atreyu
