Confidence and smiles really work

For the last couple weeks, I've consciously went into work with better posture and a bit of a smile. I've noticed that women (both clients and co-workers) often will look directly at me to smile and say 'hi' a LOT more than normal, and a few start a 1-2 minute conversation. This was NOT happening nearly as much as when I slouched with a neutral or pessimistic look on my face. For the record, man have not changed their behaviour near me, so it does seem to be an attraction thing.

I have no romantic or sexual intentions with co-workers or other women I see in the work environment, but it's been a nice ego boost and proof that yes, I can gain attention from women. To all other guys out there struggling, 'fake it til you make it', at least passes test 1.

Soon, I may start cold approaches, outside of work obviously.

Well done! Let this be the new 2016 you!

Positivity starts from within. If you shine inside, you'll shine outside!

Start a step at a time, I'm sure if you adapt to a new positive and happy mindset, things will go your way.

All the best!

I tried the same thing but with my dating profiles in the past. Had positive smiling pictures, and sent out positive messages, and pretty much everyone ignored me.

Then I posted only pics with no smile, and sent out negative type messages complaining about the dating process and well over 50% of the women replied and engaged in conversation with me.

Whatever a person's physical appearance may be, whenever they smile they'll be attractive. It always works, keep it up!

I hate the term fake it till you make it. How about you fix it so you do not have to fake it?

So, make improving confidence at least part of my new year's resolution?

Sounds like confirmation.
