And then there are the women in their mid-twenties or later who are still very inexperienced (more on that later on).
Here's a quick summary of the basic shyness issues women can deal with around guys.
This article will talk about that, with more focus put on the issues that are unique to shy women.
This piece was a little different to write for me, since being a guy, I didn't have the benefit of being able to draw on my firsthand experiences to inform my points (though you'll still see me interjecting a male perspective in parts).
You spend a lot of time convincing your boyfriend/girlfriend that you don’t hate his/her friends, you’re just awkward. You feel weird and nervous about PDA, or the opposite, fighting in public. You do everything you can to avoid doing something gross in front of your partner.
It takes you a REALLY long time to get comfortable with your partner…
Shy people are usually: These are some very general character traits that a shy person may tend to show, although it differs from person to person.
However, dating a shy girl can become a little bit of a problem because you may find it difficult to understand them in certain situations.
In a dating situation you may read the signs wrong or not be able to judge if she is actually into you or interested.
I haven’t been in many long-term relationships in my life, mainly because it’s hard for me to let my guard down and feel super comfortable with someone. Okay, so it might not be great to depend on your S.
Also, I’m attracted to outgoing people, and a lot of them don’t understand how to deal with shy girls.
Knowing that there are multiple reasons to why people are shy will allow you to understand and be patient with the girl you're wanting to get to know (and potentially date).
Being too straightforward and pushing her to talk will only make her feel pressured and less likely to feel comfortable around you.
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.
