I let men approach me, that works for me though.  I don't know, I'm shy too and would never approach a man, just smile and be confident, they'll come to you.

Go out and have fun with your friends, and let the men approach you. It will come natural, and if your nervous just let them know and they will take the lead. :)

I would say try a dating site.. I was the same way for over a year. Then I decided to try match.com and met my current boyfriend. Dating sites at least your putting yourself out there and can meet people a different way other than the usual bar scene. Doesnt have to turn into something serious just go on a couple dates and have fun and get to know some new people!!  Good luck!

It's important to know what you want in a relationship, know your boundaries and what you're comfortable with. Everyone says be yourself but it really is good advice, if you're shy be ok with it and open about it. Don't try to put up a front thinking it'll make a better impression. Be upfront about what you want or don't want. If you go into a date with no expectations then you can only be surprised.

Good luck. :-)

I did online dating.  You can start there emailing some guys. At least you can get back in the swing of talking to new people.  You dont have to meet them if you dont want to, it just might be a good way to ease yourself into it.  Be careful tho!
