First acting is required.
And acting is a necessary part in many aspects of our lives. For example policeman stops you. You act a little. You give an interview. You act a little. Etc etc. It can be even very enjoying to do so with girls. How much is up to you. Mess it up and next time you will be better.
Second boost your confidence by being around chicks that like you. Some girls like musicians. Others like body builders. Etc etc. If you are around these girls you get attention and some flirting and you can be really cool when you want to hit that higher standard girl.
