Sometimes it’s hard to figure out how to act. You’re not alone—everyone your age is going through that. It’s a fine line between being appropriately confident and being too confident, which can be a turnoff. Here are tips on staying on the right side of that line:

 

 

Confident guys (and girls):

  • Speak with certainty and look the other person directly in the eye.
  • Remember to ask questions of the other person in the conversation.
  • Don’t yell or speak over other people.
  • Don’t list all the great things they have done.

Arrogant guys (and girls):

  • Boast about their accomplishments.
  • Often forget to ask about other people.
  • Love to talk about themselves and tend to need the last word.
  • Sometimes speak with a too-loud voice.
