Well, when people talk about guys being confident, it doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be completely confident, confident all of the time, or confident in every area in your life. Everyone has insecurities.
But you were, apparently, confident enough to approach women, to talk to them, and, I'm assuming, to more-or-less be yourself around them.

Confidence matters, but u gotta have the right social skills for the culture of the girls in your region.
The culture of the girls in said area isn't talked about much, but that may be the missing piece for your success!
