How to Get Over Your Fear of Women
Ah, the concept that is near and dear to all of us men who have started on the path to success with women and dating...
Fear of rejection.
Fear of embarrassment.
Fear of the unknown.
Fear of what she might do if I start talking to her.
Fear of what other guys would think if they knew that we needed help with women.
Fear of what WOMEN would think if they knew that we needed help with women.
Fear of admitting that we're AFRAID.
...and about 100 others.
But what exactly IS fear?
And why is it such a problem?
And what can be done to overcome it?
Well, let's start with what fear is, then we'll move on to some techniques to get past it.
What Is Fear?
I once heard a great definition of FEAR:
In other words, the things that you feel fear about are usually not real. It's usually just "false evidence".
You also might think back about the last 10 things you felt fear around. Now, ask yourself... Did any of those things come true?
In most of the cases, you'll find that the fear did NOT come true.
I heard once that something like 98% of the things that people fear and worry about never come true.
I've found this to be true in my own life, of course.
Fear is an emotion, or an emotional state. It's an amazing and wonderful emotion... because it can help save your life in certain situations.
A hundred thousand years ago, when we were running around in the desert, we needed powerful, motivating emotions like FEAR to save our lives.
When you feel fear (especially if it's a response to real physical danger) you'll notice that some AMAZING things happen. Your eyes open up wider so you can see better, adrenaline pumps into your body, your heart beats fast to deliver blood to your muscles, and all kinds of other wondrous processes are triggered.
The Problem With Fear
The PROBLEM is when we experience fear at times when there IS NO real physical danger.
We humans are amazing. We can just IMAGINE things and feel fear in response to the mental images.
And I'm sure you know exactly what the problem is with this... it can IMMOBILIZE you at critical times.
Have you ever seen a woman that you'd like to meet, but you just couldn't walk over and start talking to her?
No, it's never happened to me, either.
What was the problem?
Usually, it's fear.
Fear that she'll get upset, or fear that she'll have a boyfriend... or fear that she'll embarrass you in front of others... or fear that you won't know what to say to her...
And, of course, when you feel that strong fear emotion, it just FREEZES you and makes you totally ineffective.
So what's the solution?
Ways to Overcome Fear
Well, there are several ways to overcome fears.
One way is to do the thing you fear. If you do the thing that you fear, and see that nothing bad will happen, then you eventually overcome it and become programmed not to feel fear anymore.
For instance, if you're afraid to approach women and talk to them, just DO IT. Go talk to 50 women in the next week and see that most of them will respond positively to you (if you don't act like a dumb-ass, that is).
Other ways include:
- Understanding the dynamics of male/female interactions better than most women do.
- Learning how to approach women using the same types of words and body language that the masters use.
- Learning how to use props or other devices to get a woman's attention without having to "approach" her directly.
- Learning mental techniques to overcome fears or "reset" your emotions instantly, anytime you'd like (this is one of my personal favorites).
- Using mental preparation to be completely ready for anything that might happen.
...and there are several others.
I have spent a lot of time in my own personal life learning about and figuring out how to get past fears and other psychological obstacles with women.
I go over a few different strategies for handling your fears in my eBook Double Your Dating. It's my original manual for success with women and dating, and it's the place to get started if you want to take your success with women to the next level.
You can get past your fears, but you need to learn how.
So make the commitment to yourself, and do it!
I'll talk to you again soon.
