A: Not many and not often. Confidence is the #1 thing that MOST girls look for in a guy. Obviously there are exceptions, but as a rule, confidence is what will get you a date (or laid) and lack of confidence is what will get you rejected and/or FriendZoned.
I can't personally get into a guy who is super shy and has no confidence. It suggests that he likely is going to be co-dependent in a relationship and I'm not personally attracted to people who don't love themselves.
Also, just because you don't date those types of guys doesn't suggest that girls only want stereotypical alpha males. It just means they don't like quiet, self-loathing guys.
I have always dated guys who lack confidence and are somewhat insecure. They haven't necessarily been shy, but they are noticeably lacking confidence in some areas. Although I think confidence (not arrogance) is a very attractive quality in a guy, I also find men who need a little extra loving just as attractive. As I have always struggled with confidence and insecurity, I love being able to be the girlfriend who boosts her Guy's self confidence through love and affection and reminding him how amazing he is. I feel that guys who are this way let me "mother" them and i love it. I love when a guy can admit he doesn't have to be all manly and he can let me know he isn't the most confident guy in the world
It's not about wanting an "alpha" just because he's alpha If we find you attracive, we find you attractive... but we need to know you like us too. Alpha males go for/take what they want. You know where you stand with them
Shy guys can leave a girl guessing and/or doubting herself for months. I don't think shy guys realise just how much they can affect girls' self confidence
If she's not dating you, it's not because she doesn't find you attractive, or worth it, it's because you never made her feel like she was.
Honestly no. There's a few out there but most won't. Unfortunately for you as a man you're expected to put yourself out there and make a statement. To women shy guys that lack confidence= weak and weak is a huge turn off to women.
