Think about past experiences and assess any failures.

Make yourself feel confident.
You can do this by getting a new haircut, treating yourself to new clothes or enjoying a night out with friends. Be sure to be confident in yourself in order to have sufficient confidence to talk to a new person.
Search for online dating sites.

Search for a man with similar interests as your own.
Make sure to search for a man in your age range, within an area easily accessible area and to whom you're attracted. Once you feel comfortable with the idea, send a request to talk to the man you have found you like. Be polite, confident and most importantly yourself. If you connect with the person you like, talk informally about a meeting time. Be careful with where you arrange to meet. Make sure it is a public place with many people around in case you feel uncomfortable at any time. If the date goes well arrange another meeting. If the date is unsuccessful, search again and do not lose your confidence.
Look to meet a man through a mutual friend or work colleague.

Try talking to new men while you are taking part in a hobby of yours. If you don't have an appropriate hobby, begin one, such as working out at a local gym.
