"I would suggest trying Jeremy's advice above. In my opinion over analysis is a symptom of what we have been saying. It isn't that you are thinking too much but your thinking is stemming from some issues of self esteem. "

"Don't focus on that, Liam is right.  The overly clingy behavior often goes hand in hand with the overly critical behavior that you mentioned in another post, and they usually stem from low self-esteem.  Those kinds of things…"

"Which comes from a lack of confidence and self esteem. So those are the things you need to work on. Start by watching this which has some interesting ideas on the subject. The first 40 minutes are the most important."

"You may be right. But I think that the reason he is worrying is in part down to some object fears which need some work to over come. There probably is some manning up to be done too but it seems to me (and I may be wrong of course) that there is…"

"I read his post as some guy who was trying to convince himself that he was doomed to fail with a girl that he's pretty sure likes him.  My advice was meant to suggest he be up front with her and to not dwell on other issues that are…"

"Jeremy, I think he is past the asking her out stage. They know they like each other but there are clearly some other personal issues here which I am pretty sure aren't going to be solved by looking at his testicles. And ignoring them in the…"

"Take pen and paper. Give yourself a couple of hours or an evening and sit down with them until you end up with some idea of what is bothering you on the paper in front of you. Ask yourself what you are afraid of? What are the barriers to things…"

"Go in the bathroom and look down in your pants.  You see that hair down there?  It's time to prove that it grows there for a reason. Now, go to her, say, "hello," and tell her you would like to go on a date with her, use the…"

"Rejection sucks for all of us, just a part of becoming a man and realizing that it is just her saying no, it doesn't change who you are.   As far as what to say, I think most guys agree, ask questions, listen to what she says and ask more…"

"Just a thought, the pain of rejection or failure is nothing compared to the pain of "what if"."

"I wear watches because I always have, its a part of me as much as wearing shoes or my cornicello. It's something I just do. I also wear it simply because I refuse to become dependent n a cell phone or something similar."
