Shy or bye?
This guy, although he might be fun to be around and he shows interest in conversations with you, doesn’t seem to be ready to make a definite romantic move. This could either be because he’s shy or that he doesn’t see things progressing beyond a friend situation. You can find out where he stands in two ways: either wait it out and see what he does or take the focus off him completely and get interested in other guys. This could help him to realise that you’re not waiting around for him and if he wants you he’s going to have to step up and make a move.
Shy guys rule ‘cause they don’t come on too strongly, which is awesome. However, it also sucks if he’s doing nothing definite to date you, right? Ugh, the frustration! The cool thing is that this guy shows you that he enjoys your company, which is already a step in the right direction. If you start losing patience with how he’s taking his sweet time, try flirting with him a bit (touch his arm during conversation or give him a charming smile from across the room) and see how he reacts. If he likes you back, his body language will show you what his mouth isn’t saying, giving you a better idea of where he’s at.
He might be shy but…
Although this guy might be shy sometimes, he’s not afraid to give you clear hints that he likes you. Maybe you haven’t been reading the signals, girl! Time to peel your eyes and take better note of what he’s saying and doing. Based on answers from this quiz, this guy enjoys time spent with you, flirts with you and makes you feel that you’re the only girl in the room when you’re together. It’s highly likely that things will start moving towards a romantic situation soon. In the meantime, enjoy his company.
