What do you think the lack of confidence stems from?  Have you had a lot of hurt and disappointment in your life?  Sometimes that can be the root of it and a way to overcome that is to throw caution to the wind and immerse yourself in outside relationships.  

I do think therapists can help someone work through self esteem issues and maybe it is time to consider that for yourself.

Also, in your case--------- I think where you meet someone is important.  You don't want to meet them at a bar or something like that.  You want to make friends and date people that you meet doing something you enjoy and are good at. good luck

Now I see in your profile that you are 18------- forget the bar talk.  I am just wondering if you had any hurt or pain/disappointment that this stems from.
