A shy dude is going to need to open up to you and feel comfortable around you before your friendship progresses to something romantic.
I’ve been dating my boyfriend for over four years now, and I’ve obviously gotten so comfortable with him that it’s a little ridiculous. My shyness drove him crazy in the beginning, so I totally get what you shy girls with new boyfriends/girlfriends are going through.
Guys love being asked for help and they love being able to give that help.
A new relationship is a super exciting time when you’re getting to know someone and really enjoying that nice honeymoon stage that is hard to find in a more long-term dating situation. Because if you’re a shy girl, like me, a new relationship is an exciting but nerve-wracking time when you’re trying to be really close with someone you still feel very awkward around. When your boyfriend/girlfriend isn’t around, you do whatever you can to avoid being near their parents. You very rarely speak up about how you feel or what you want. You take things pretty slow when it comes to hooking up.
I’ve written about my shy girl struggles before, and surprise surprise, they don’t just disappear when you start dating someone. And you get even more uncomfortable when you have to meet and be around their family. It’s not that you don’t like them, it’s just that they make you want to crawl out of your shaking skin and hide. You start using your partner as a crutch whenever you’re in social situations.
Pay attention to other things, like how he looks at you or how he stands when he's around you.
Look to see if he seems happy when he's talking to you. Source: Shutter Stock Once you feel like he's more comfortable with you and maybe even interested in you, it's time to make another move.
