Shy guys don't make the first move for a reason... They're shy! lol, if a woman wants a guy who is shy then she'll have to make the move.

Shy guys I think are more like women in the sense that they most likely won't do the pursuing, defenitley not make the first move and just generally lets the girl take the initiatives... atleast in the beggining.

I don't see why any woman would want a guy like this, Women like to be pursued... not do the pursuing.

Shyness is not an ilness that can't be cured. Shy guys just need to practise on getting rid of their shyness, it can be done and it ain't that hard... trust me I used to be shy, but I trained it away gradually.

I don't really think there's such a thing as shy men being too afraid to approach a woman. If a guy really likes a girl, BELIEVE me, he will approach her. It's in men's genes to do that; the conquest.

And would you prefer the girl to just go and make the first move (if you are both interested in each other?) And how long do you wait/take to make the first move?
We'll talk to you but you have to throw us an obvious sign. Don't expect a shot in the dark stab at anything. That should be the sign of a gentleman too. I mean who wants the guy hitting on you when you go to the grocery store just trying to buy some groceries?

Nah, sometimes Im too afraid to approach her so I just stay back, and once I build enough confidence I "attempt" to talk to her.

Both shy guys and girls don't show any signals. Your gonna have to go tell them yourself that u like them first and then ask them to see if they like u back.

As I remember, "shy guys" were one of the villains you had to fight in one of the Nintendo games.

I think you can define me as a shy girl. But usually when I like a guy I act all extroverted and more outgoing than my usual shelf, and I try to talk to the guy as much as possible. But with this "shy guy" that Im liking right now, pretty shy, and when i try to approach him, he just mumbles and says something in a really low tone that I can bearly hear him.

I look at him when I talk to him at first, but I get so timid that I stare quickly away.. but since he is so bashfully shy, Ive noticed that I become even shyer as well... its like the battle of the "who's more awkward." ..lol

though I have to say that his body language does more of the talking than his mouth (in the sense that he tries to be close to me, or gets nervous and shakes his legs when we are sitting next to each other alot, and he keeps wiping the palms of his hands on his pants... its cute though )

The only advice I can give you is to not wait around for signs and tell him that u how u feel about him and ask him if he feels the same way. It isn't a good idea at all to wait for signs from someone who is very shy because they don't show any signs.
