Do you want to know how shy guys act around a girl they like?
Reading people’s behavior can sometimes be difficult. Sometimes it can be downright misleading. Psychologists call this the “mind reading fallacy.” That is, thinking that you can know exactly what’s going through the mind of another person simply by reading his or her behavior.
Even though it is difficult, however, that does not mean it is impossible or futile. It just means it is difficult.
Anybody can be hard to read from judging their behavior. How many times have you been told by someone that your assessment of another person was totally wrong?
But don’t detectives go by “suspicious behavior” all the time in nabbing a criminal? Don’t we read expressions and body language when deciding to approach an attractive person of the opposite sex?
Yes, but it can be even more difficult to know how shy guys act around a girl they like. Shy guys may be less communicative and less talkative than an outgoing person. Shy guys may be less likely to make good eye contact, which is an important cue in reading someone’s emotions.
My advice is to eliminate the guesswork entirely and stop trying to figure out how shy guys act around a girl they like. Instead, make the first move so that his feelings become unmistakable.
How do you do this? Remember that since a shy guy is quiet and may have trouble knowing what to say, you should make it easy for him. Be friendly, make pleasant conversation with him, and ask questions to get him to open up. Be sure to learn and remember his name.
You may have to overcome some shyness yourself in order to do this. Shyness is often “catching.” That is, being around a shy person can make us feel a little shy ourselves, so you’ll have to make an extra effort to get him to open up–and to overcome your own shyness as well.
