Smile Smile at least you dated some of the chicks, Aldo...

what about men like me!! Sad ever so shy.. Many of us Indian men are shy.. and it may delineate into a large chapter..
and I am an extreme example.. why? I would like to explain and be frank with you, like you are with me..
- in the beginning, your family didn't give you confidence, which led to your underconfidence in the society as well..
- society itself is restrictive and two genders are separated and at large kept separated from early years..
- studying in an all boys' school..
- no good looks.. with my lean face.. and the kind of eyes I have, I appeared like a drug addict.. In our society, girls try to gather too much from your looks..
- eyes are a big problem with me, as far as girls are concerned.. for some reason, it catches them off-guard.. (Buggers, these are my eyes since my childhood! Sad).. and the mates of my college called me unflattering names.. 'rapist' and few juniors I met two months ago said 'sir, girls won't look at you because you rape through your eyes'.. This all had shaken my confidence so much that I was afraid of even looking at girls - what they might think about me!
- For a larger part of my life, I found myself trembling and shaky in their company..
- When you are hearing this from very close quarters and for many years - you are ugly, you are mad, you are good-for-nothing, you are an aberration, blablabla.. and some things I would not like to mention..

It is only recently that I have got some confidence back.. I face the with confidence and talk to them naturally and freely.. well, can also date them if they want..
but they won't.. Sad

Cheers, my friend.. you have been very lucky.. Smile
