Shy girl dating shy boy
Naturally they can also be shy about other steps further along in the dating process.
Before we've had firsthand experience with the dating world women, and men, tend to have a naive, overly romantic view of what relationships and sex are like.If he talks to her she may get totally flustered and tongue-tied, or be so anxious that she ends up babbling on when it's her turn to speak.The nervousness inhibits their ability to take action in the direction they want to go.People may also be projecting their own fears and prejudices onto the behavior of shy good looking women ("She's hot, she'd never like a guy like me.She's not laughing at my jokes because she's stuck up like all pretty girls", "She'd never want to be friends with me. She's like all those catty popular girls from high school.").Instead I had to rely on my observations and research on what shy women go through.
Like with men, there's variation in how shy women can be towards the opposite sex and dating.
If a woman isn't considered that physically attractive, her shyness will be reinterpreted as well, but this time in light of a different of unflattering stereotypes ("She's not talking because she's weird and anti-social and mad at the world") This isn't so much a practical issue as an attitude that can make a shy woman feel their concerns are dismissed or misunderstood.
The belief is that since men are expected to initiate romantic relationships, and to do the work of fighting past a woman's initial hesitation or wariness, shy women don't have to work as hard to overcome their issues.
They might give someone their number, but be too scared to answer his text when he contacts them.
Or they may really want to date someone, but wimp out and say no when they're asked out.
Keeping with the nature of shyness, once a woman has finished the above-mentioned type of nervous conversation with a guy, she'll probably start beating up on herself. He came and talked to me and I barely said anything back.
