Dating a shy man
It starts with the fact that he is a great listener and a compassionate companion.
He will hear out your problem and will offer the best advice, whenever you need it.
He is happy to take part in activities that most guys would run away from.
You need to bake cookies for your best friends surprise birthday party?
Everyone thinks your boyfriend is a jerk because he doesn't talk to any of your friends for the first, like, two years.
And then feeling like you have to print out all of your text messages for them so they can know how sweet he can be, really, I swear!! Spending a good portion of your courtship trying to figure out how the hell he feels about you.
You won't see his eyes glaze over when you start an in-depth comparative analysis of Beyoncé's discography because he genuinely cares about what you have to say.2. It doesn't matter if he's talking to his boss or the waitress who's covering your table, it's "please" and "thank you" all day and all night. Not only is he great at listening to your problems, he's always there to give honest, thoughtful guidance when you ask for it. He's generally down to do things with you that other guys make every conceivable effort to avoid. Flowers, breakfast in bed, random notes left around your room — he does it all. When you want to spend the morning lying in bed and talking about Li Fe*~, it's shy guys FTW.
Always remember that every shy guy loves to talk and share his inner feelings, but can possibly do so once you successfully wipe out his awkward silent moments.
Over the years several women have written me to tell me reading this site has helped them understand the actions of a shy guy they were pursuing.
With that in mind I thought I'd try to be even more helpful and write a whole article outlining what it's like to be a man who's really shy and inexperienced with women.
If you can find a way to make those things happen though, oh, will he be loved. Knowing there are certain conversation topics that are off limits because if you brought them up, he'd freak out and combust into a pile of nerves.
And the funnest part is trying to find out what those topics are before you accidentally hit that land-mine and he goes into the bathroom and doesn't come back out again. Praying he'll make noise during sex like you're wishing for rain during a drought.
