Almost every single time I've ever asked for romantic advice, people have told me that the key to becoming attractive to the opposite sex is to show a lot of self-confidence. But I have a problem with that advice - I don't feel that confidence is a magical instant cure. In fact, I think it can actually have a negative effect. There are several people in my classes who are overconfident snobs, and my classmates don't look up to them. In fact, everyone else makes fun of the snobs. When someone is egotistical and full of themself, they actually make themself look like a jerk, not like someone that you'd want to be friends with. If I go up to a girl and tell her "Baby, I am confident in myself. I am 100% sure in my ability to win your love and there's no way I'm wrong about that." I don't exactly think that I'm going to seem charming, I think I'm going to sound creepy as hell. Yet, everyone I've spoken to is entirely convinced that self-confidence is the key to success in all things. But being overconfident can screw you over - and if you're confident in your abilities and you fail anyway, then you were falsely confident in yourself and your confidence had no merit at all, so what's the point? Can anyone tell me where the line is drawn between reasonable confidence and overconfidence?
