Want a crash course in how shy men act around someone they like? Put yourself in their shoes. Think of a time that you felt shy yourself. How did it feel? How did you react?
Shy people often have trouble making eye contact. They may tend to look down at their feet more than extroverts. Perhaps they get tongue-tied and don’t know what to say. This is just how shy men act around women they like sometimes.
Another problem with shyness is that shy people are often misinterpreted as being aloof or unfriendly. A guy may become even more shy if he is turned down repeatedly by someone he likes. Remember the old saying, “Once burned, twice shy.”
Worse, shy people, because of their unassertive manner, are often treated badly. People often feel at liberty to be rude to a shy person and say things that they wouldn’t say to the extrovert. Studying a good course on shyness can help you understand how shy men act around women they like.
It’s true that the symptoms of shyness can be hard to distinguish from sheer unfriendliness, but the best advice is not to worry about it. Try to make conversation with someone you think may be shy.
Remember that you may have to do more of the talking with someone who is shy. If you have a bit of shyness yourself, it will be harder to talk to someone who is quieter than usual.
Ask questions of the shy guy to draw him out. Try to overcome any shyness you may feel yourself, and remember that you will have to put forth more effort to talk to the shy person. If you have too much trouble talking to the shy person, perhaps you need a little assistance in overcoming shyness yourself.
After you have had a friendly conversation with the shy person, repeat the process the next chance you get. You may find the shy guy opening up more and more, and even seeking you out for conversation as well. You have made the first step towards friendship and maybe something more.
