Over the last few years I have tried to understand how to attract a nice girl. Trying to be more outgoing, turned into flirting. People tell me I’m such a nice guy which I believe is because I honestly try to be nice to everyone. I realize I need to stop flirting but it’s really hard. My old self comes out here and there. When I was younger I had low self esteem and would hit on the girls. Over the last few weeks of self analyzing I have decided flirting makes me feel cheap. If I did find a nice girl, it would be a roadblock for us. I need to take care of this. After looking on youtube I realize something I do alot is considered flirting: steady eye contact. People also talk about “hinting” through verbal and nonverbal. My QUESTION: Does it come down to just knowing how to distance yourself? How do I balance out genuinely being friendly with distance?
