Your past is in your mind, but your future is in your hands. Remember that if you ever decide against talking to someone you fancy. Taking the initiative is a robust and attractive trait that is heavily underutilized. Relationships don’t happen overnight very often, so take time to grow it and don’t rush. When you first speak, even if you are apprehensive, appear confident. Self-assurance is fantastic but doesn’t take it too far and come across as arrogant, or you will suffer the consequences of your actions. Listen intently and discuss them more frequently than you talk about yourself. Eye contact could be the difference-maker, do not break it.
