What men are thinking when they approach you

I was recently honored as a guest on Myke Macapinlac’s Social Confidence Mastery video podcast, where I gave a female perspective to Myke‘s audience of shy men who are eager to learn how to feel more confident around others.

(also, isn’t his name cool? Myke Macapinlac… it’s so fun to say!)

During our chat, Myke dropped some great perspective on what’s going on in guys’ heads when they’re thinking about approaching women – like the insecurities and fears that pop-up.

Because honestly, we’re all human and our feelings about the opposite sex tend to be fairly similar.

(well, maybe not all of them.. but most.)
