I realize there is probably a placebo effect where you would feel more confident and are more outgoing but the change for the better as far as physical appearance matters a lot I'm guessing. Or... you remain shy and timid even after losing weight? Or did things just stay the same anyway?
I'm in the processing of dieting and what not since the new year, dropped 10 lbs so far, I kinda worry I'll just act the same if I do slim down to my target and it won't improve my prospects.

Some of them still feel insecure even after they lose the weight.1

Shy and timid is something you have to work on separately but I did a physical transformation that was slightly different.
I was very skinny and ended up bulking up and gaining some mass, filling up my shirts better. That definitely went beyond a placebo effect since I had some girls wanting to feel my arms and chest and complimenting me on my body. They definitely would not have been interested in doing that when I was a skinny and awkward-looking teenager.
The shyness and timidness I got over mostly because the first couple of girls actually came onto me first and I accepted their offer. Probably the physical transformation helped there. After I got a few girlfriends, I started to no longer fixate and fall in love with the first pretty girl who smiled at me. As a result it became much easier to just behave normally and comfortably around attractive girls over time since I didn't consider it that big of a deal whether or not they would accept my offer to go out.1
