You don’t care about unnecessary things, nor do you care

Confidence here means believing in your ability to succeed
with women… believing that you can get ANY girl or woman you want.

Even when he strikes out with a woman, he shakes it off and moves on to the next available woman. He doesn’t dwell on his failures and mistakes… he doesn’t criticize himself or put himself down. He moves on.

When the confident man gets a girl…

…he doesn’t need to prove himself to her, nor seek her approval.

That’s to say, he doesn’t brag or show off to get a woman interested in him, he doesn’t buy a woman’s affection and approval with favors and money… because he has a firm belief he can easily get any woman he wants without using trickery.

The confident man interacts with a woman with the belief that the woman is going to have fun being with him and find him interesting. [Read: ‘How to Get a Girl to Like You’ and ‘How to Make a Girl or a Woman Fall in Love with You’]
