I'll admit that I fear rejection from women immensely, to the point that I would probably never approach a random women for fear she'll rip into me and destroy my admittedly rather fragile self-esteem.
There's no particular reason why I should feel so terrified of approaching women, I've never actually had a particularly bad experience, although I don't think I've ever actually approached a woman totally at random.
The fear just seems to be totally innate in me, as if my brain is telling me that approaching women is a bad idea, my whole instinct is that it is a bad idea more likely to go wrong than be a success.
Is the extent of my fear regarding approaching women normal? Do the majority of men feel like that?
