How do I overcome shyness around girls I like?

I am a 17 year old guy and I am really shy. I am a nice guy and I have a lot of friends but when I am around girls I like, I choke up and become awkward. Time and time again, I've seen girls I like go with other guys just because they have a confidence and a swagger that I don't. How do I overcome that?
