Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

You can do this, if you want a different result you just need a new skill. You need to be socially comfortable, spend time at places where you can get free experience. Spend time at a bookstore, hang out at the mall, learn to speak to strangers and feel okay with that. Talk to salespeople and ask them a question or two , they're paid to be nice.

There's a lot of great & effective dating material out there ( I know from experience, I've become very successful) that may be a good option also. Hang in there, if I can go from being afraid to speak to a woman to having a date anytime I want, so can you.

It's not a lost cause, when the pain of being shy is stronger than the fear of being rejected or judged, you'll change.
