Greetings. I'm not around these parts much these days, but I'm hoping to catch some advice if you are all feeling so kind. I'll try to keep this from being massive in explanation, but I'm usually a sucker for details. On to the point.. I have a lot of trouble talking to women. Once I've befriended them, sure I can talk to them and be friends and everything is fine (the friendship usually being started by the other party, for the reason stated above). Outside of that however, there's not much in the way of interaction. Obviously I've had few relationships because of this, and the ones I have had I was the one asked out, and it was by a female I was already friends with. These problems were mostly caused by self-esteem issues in the past (being morbidly obese your whole life can sometimes do that to you). Recently however, I feel as tho I've bettered myself immensely, and I'm much more confident now (still working on it), tho to my dismay I still can't even approach you ladies. So what works well when it comes to meeting somebody you may have an interest in? Would anyone have any suggestions on how to go about introducing yourself? I'm not the best with small talk, and you ladies are all so pretty and soft my mind always first jumps to sex and snuggles, which I doubt are the best topics to bring up the first time you meet someone. Any help would be appreciated, but thanks regardless.
