How to Feel Good About Yourself

Confidence is an attractive trait, fact. When you meet or speak with a confident person, you instantly feel drawn to them and want to spend more time in their company or chatting with them.

And when it comes to dating or hook-ups, self-confidence is key for having a good time and enjoying yourself. If you’re hung up on your body image, or having a tough time with self-worth, this will undoubtedly negatively affect your ability to enjoy hook-ups.

That’s where we come in. We’re here with some top ways you can get yourself feeling better and increase your confidence.

Learn how to love yourself

Motivational speaker Tony Robbins said: “The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships” – this includes not only your love interests but the relationship that you have with yourself.

Learning how to fall in love with yourself is essential to your own happiness and the success of relationships. But how do you fall in love with yourself? Well, you need to treat yourself as you would a partner that you’re madly in love with. Respect yourself, romanticise yourself, treat yourself and work on your physical and mental state, so you’re in top form.

Once you love yourself, the law of attraction will start to work. Essentially, the love you have for yourself will naturally spread out to the world and come back to you ten-fold.

Celebrate your successful hook-ups and your rejections

Not every hook-up will be a success, and rejections are inevitable as you won’t be everyone’s cup of tea and vice versa. However, you should learn to celebrate your successes and rejections in order to boost and maintain your confidence. Understanding and celebrating your successes helps you recognise the contributing factors that made it a success in the first place. Success literally breeds success.

And embrace rejection too! It really has nothing to do with you! But it be a great way to build your confidence. Remember that each interaction teaches us something and pushes us to grow and learn. And it’s a great way to lean into the thought process ‘I don’t want anyone who doesn’t 100% want me’, which promotes a secure and content outlook to dating and relationships.

Stop comparing yourself to others

If you find yourself comparing yourself to others on social media, consider unfollowing those accounts or limit your scrolling time. If certain people bring out your unconfident side, simply stop hanging out with them.

We hope you manage to build and maintain your confidence so that you feel good about yourself before hooking up with someone new on TapDat.
