Oversimplified and nothing new. Think Positive?
Most men have found out one of life's little secrets – women like confident men.
But when constantly faced with dealing with rejection, how long before chinks in the armor start to show. Men have self esteem issues also. I personally think that many of those that appear to have great self confidence i.e. I'm a pimp/player mentality are masking low self esteem issues.
I remember a singles network event where a woman shared that she decided that she would try being the initiator and start approaching men. She found it to be very eye opening. It quickly became clear that it can be a depressing process. It wasn't just the rejection but HOW she was rejected. (see the story by Max about the pretty girl on the bus)
