How to be Yourself Around a Person You Like

After countless attempts to meet someone through online dating, I’ve decided I just can’t do this anymore and to refocus on offline opportunities. But what happened is I’m discovering that I am not myself with people I do like. I am trying to make them like me, and they don’t get to see me, like real me.

Consciously I actually think that I’d have much better chances being myself, but I just can’t. Like actually. I’m so self-conscious that I am not able to relax. So the question is, how do I start acting naturally? 🙂
