Doing so may give him the courage to come over. Approach him one-on-one. Even the most outgoing guys can be overwhelmed when you're constantly surrounded by a group of friends. Take the pressure off by stepping away from your pals to chat him up.
If your friends are around, ask them to meet you later so you can talk in private. Then walk up to your shy guy with a huge smile and say "Hi. Ask open-ended questions to keep conversations going. Greeting one another and making small talk will only get you so far with a shy guy.
Suggest low-key activities to warm up to one another. Once you and Mr. Shy get on friendly terms, suggest a time for you to hang out together. Part 2 of Chat side-by-side rather than face-to-face. Guys in general are more receptive during shoulder-to-shoulder activities as opposed to head-on ones. Try to reduce the pressure and help him get comfortable with you by talking and doing activities side-by-side.
Connect through shared interests. Use these interests to deepen conversations or bring excitement to your time together. For example, if you both like Stranger Things, consider binge-watching the show or going to a convention together.
You're more likely to win him over if the interest is genuinely mutual. Invite him out to a no-pressure small gathering. Maybe ask him to come with you and friends to a concert or a festival happening in your city. Up the stakes by hanging out one-on-one. After you've gotten to know one another, initiate plans for a real date. Plan the date around your personalities, so you both feel comfortable.
If he's not the mushy type, resist the urge to plan a romantic candlelight dinner. Instead, go for something light-hearted and casual, so you can both be yourselves. Part 3 of Get comfortable with some silence. At first, you might be unnerved by the many silences that come with dating a shy guy.
Give him space as needed. If your boyfriend is shy or introverted, he may need time alone to recharge. Don't take this personally—it's nothing against you. Just establish a way for him to let you know when he needs a little space.
Or, he might grow quiet and withdrawn. If this happens, you might ask, "Why don't I go in the other room and give you some space? Call ya later, okay? Allow him time to warm to your friends. Avoid situations in which your friends "grill" him with questions. This might make him retreat back into his shell. Also, ask him in advance if he's okay hanging out with a group of your pals.
Don't draw attention to his shyness. You might think it's cute when your crush acts shy or blushes, but he may be mortified inside. Avoid calling out his shyness, whether in a group or when you're alone. Just overlook it and act like whatever he's doing is totally normal. Plan to take the lead with intimacy.
One of the tough things about dating a shy guy is having to initiate intimacy. Hugs, kisses, and other forms of affection will likely have to be prompted by you in order for them to happen. Your guy may be too shy to make the first move. Be patient. Dating a shy guy might feel agonizing. You might constantly wonder if you're on the right track. You might also get frustrated when it takes him longer to open up.
He will send you signals in his own way to let you know that he's into you. Give it time. Try making the first move and letting him know that you're interested right away. That way, he may be more inclined to open up to you. Yes No. Unsurprisingly, they're really nervous and hesitant about this as well. Same general discomfort and risk of rejection. He may have a blatant, all-systems-go opportunity where the woman is clearly interested, but he can't manage to go through with it.
There he is, sitting on a couch watching a movie with his date when the credits start to roll. She turns to face him, looking into his eyes expectantly. He returns her gaze and pauses for a moment, and a little longer, and a bit longer still Afterward he's kicking himself for being so spineless. He was trying to work up the nerve to kiss her all evening, and kept wondering if now was the right time to do it, but in the end he couldn't pull the trigger. One key fear guys have in this situation if they're sexually inexperienced is that their embarrassing secret will be outed, and they'll be humiliated.
They may think something like, "I've never kissed a woman. I don't know what I'm doing. What if she can tell I've never done this before? And when you're really inexperienced yourself it seems that's pretty much every woman. Part of this comes from a belief that no woman would be interested in a shy guy if she's had already had a few boyfriends. It also goes back to that point I mentioned in the last paragraph about them fearing their inexperience being outed.
This hinders shy men in two ways. First, they'll often rule out more-obviously experienced women as prospects. Too scary. Only harmless, innocent-seeming women don't arouse their fears. But there are only so many women out there who are just as shy and inexperienced as them, so it really cuts down their possibilities, and makes them put that much more pressure on themselves when they do find one who fits the description. Secondly, if he's into a woman, and she seems into him, and she says something that draws attention to her comparatively higher level of experience e.
She seems a lot more daunting now. And they figure, why would she want him? She has experience, he doesn't. It'd never work out. On the link below you'll find a training series focused on how to feel at ease socially, even if you tend to overthink today. It also covers how to avoid awkward silence, attract amazing friends, and why you don't need an "interesting life" to make interesting conversation. Click here to go to the free training. With time many anxious guys can slowly face their fears and gain enough experience with the opposite sex that they're not as held back by their anxiety as they used to be.
They can start dating like everyone else. However, they may always have a tougher time of it than some men. They're often late bloomers, since their nerves and general social awkwardness kept them from getting into the dating game as early as everyone else. They're insecure and hard on themselves about dating When a guy is shy and unconfident about his love life insecure thoughts often flow through his head in an effortless stream - "I'm hopeless.
I'll never get better. I suck with women. I'm a loser. I'm not good looking enough. There's no way that woman at work actually likes me. I totally screwed up with her the other day when I made that dumb joke. I give up. It's all quite self-sabotaging. First, a lack of confidence isn't super-attractive. Next, they can be hyper-alert for any signs of rejection, and almost eager to conclude the worst.
For example, if they're casually chatting to a woman and she mentions a TV show that he doesn't like, he may get deflated and think, "Ah man, she likes that show? There's no way she'll be into me now. Dammit, another prospect hasn't panned out. Story of my life. I'll never meet anyone. A lot of what I've mentioned so far hints at this.
It's hard to explain, but almost unconsciously shy guys can have the attitude that in order to get a girlfriend the world has to send them one packaged in such a way that they won't feel anxious or have to do anything that pushes them out of their comfort zone. They figure everything will finally work out one day when they stumble onto a woman who naturally likes them, who they won't have to take the initiative to talk to, who they won't have to ask out, and who has the magic combination of qualities which ensures he never feels nervous around her.
It's also really common for shyer guys to fantasize about meeting a really forward, take charge woman who makes all the scary moves for them. She asks him out, she kisses him first, etc. However, if a guy is really shy he may still balk in the face of someone so direct, and still miss his chance.
The idea that if they want a girlfriend they'll have to actively work on finding one, or that they'll have to learn to cope with their nervousness , isn't on the map. Nope, they just have to meet the perfect woman under the perfect circumstances, where they'll be guided by rails with no room to screw up.
They have thoughts such as: "Well I didn't meet any women this semester. Maybe in next semester's classes I'll randomly end up sitting beside the person of my dreams", or "Maybe at my job the woman I like will be assigned to work on a project with me all day", or "Maybe this time when I go to the bar and just stand around all night a woman will walk up and seduce me. When a guy is shy and inexperienced with women he usually isn't immersed in female company or the dating and hook up scene.
He may also be socially inexperienced or isolated in general, because he likes to keep to himself or doesn't have a ton of friends. That means shy guys get their ideas of what dating and girlfriends and relationships are like from sources like movies, Tv shows, the internet, and snippets of conversation they've heard from other people. Shy guys can develop a caricatured, romanticized view of relationships, because they've seen too many romantic comedies or high school dramas with Hollywood endings.
According to their 'education' the beautiful cheerleader always wants a caring, sensitive guy who likes her for her. The female lead wants a nice guy to save her from the all the jerks she normally attracts. Women are sweet, innocent creatures that need to be nurtured. Shy guys have a blind spot for the reality that some women might get drunk and make out with a hot guy just for the hell of it, or that they could have a friend-with-benefits, or that they would want to casually date a few people at once.
This can make shy guys pretty clueless about dating protocol. People in a guy's age group may not even really 'date' at all, but he wouldn't know it because that's what people do in the movies and on TV. They may wonder things like: "How exactly do you ask a woman out? Continuing on the theme of having an over-romanticized view of dating: When a shy, inexperienced guy finds a woman he likes, his thoughts often aren't, "She seems fun. Maybe we can hang out a few times and see where it goes.
She's my dream girl. I just want to cuddle her by the ocean for hours as we watch the shooting stars above. Boy, better not screw that one up. Since they don't try to create their own options, whenever a half-decent woman comes into the life of a shy guy through school, work, or his social circle, his mind immediately leaps to, "Could this be the one??? Is this the woman I'll end my streak of loneliness with? They'll quickly get infatuated and preoccupied, constantly wondering if it's going to all work out with her.
What's weird is, objectively these women often aren't even that appealing to the shy guy, or he obviously wouldn't be her type. However, because they have so few options, and are so desperate to meet someone, any minimally friendly woman they meet instantly becomes a possibility. They almost have to like these women, what other choice do they have?
If it later seems like things won't work out - which is likely since he's just invested a throwaway casual interaction with too much meaning - he'll get demoralized. But it won't be long before he's fixated on a new person. I think women should be aware that just by being friendly, even in the most offhand way, to a shyer guy, he may start seeing you as a prospect.
He may even get a semi-obsessive crush on you. It's not that you sent him any signals, just that any woman he comes across offers a chance to end his Forever Alone status and his mind reacts to this a little too excitedly and desperately. Here's what I think they are, maybe you can figure out some other ones: If you want to get to know a shy guy, it may be easier to talk to him yourself.
If he seems awkward, be persistent and try talking to him again a few more times. If you seemed to hit it off with a guy, but now he's acting strange and hesitant to talk to you, he may be shy or it could be for any of the other reasons two people seem to hit it off but then one doesn't follow up on it If a guy is nervous or insecure around you for whatever reason, just cut him some slack, don't draw attention to it, and he'll calm down eventually.
Even though you may be sending obvious hints, and even if he does understand them, you can't necessarily count on him to ask you out or kiss you himself. It may be easier for all involved if you make the first move. Don't expect a shyer guy to necessarily 'get' concepts like, "We just hung out twice, and fooled around once, that doesn't mean we're a couple now.
If you think a guy you like is inexperienced then do him a favor and do nothing whatsoever to draw attention to it. Don't give him an opportunity to get all freaked out and insecure over what a supposed pathetic virgin he is. If you think a guy is inexperienced, you may want to take the same approach to your own past experiences.
Just don't bring them up and potentially give him something to worry about. Sure, after you've messed around a bit and he's more relaxed and comfortable with himself you can bring up your ex-boyfriends or what you like in bed, but before that it's probably better to take a "If he doesn't know about it, it won't bother him" approach. That's all I've got. I hope this article helps you hook up with that cute, quiet, quirky guy you've got your eye on. And of course I hope this article indirectly makes life easier out there for all the shy dudes out there too.
This originally wasn't part of the article, but I decided to add it after several women wrote to me asking for help with a shy guy they were interested in getting to know. Overall their situation was that things seemed like they were heading in a promising direction, but then he starting avoiding contact with her, and she's not sure why he's acting that way or what she can do to salvage things.
