For the shy guy, it starts with his heart and his head.
He already likes you, so find a way to get a good one-on-one conversation going. His shyness will probably bring out boldness and strength in you, even if you tend to be bashful around bad boys and superheroes. Try to keep the pressure low and the comfort factor high.
Maybe his experience with women is limited, and he doesn’t know what to do and has no clue where the lines of appropriate behavior are drawn.
He doesn't try to chase you or get you wound up again. When you're telling him about a backstabbing coworker, he's not constantly interrupting you to tell you what he'd do. He'll promise to do better and, like, pick up his socks.5.He doesn't automatically get mad at you when you're pissed at him.Things don't escalate, especially if he realizes he's in the wrong. Just because he's sensitive, that doesn't mean he's not manly.He has no problem holding a baby (in fact, he enthuses over it).Not that you're ready for kids yet, but you just know he'll be great once it's time. Just because your relationship hits a rough patch, that doesn't mean he wants to give up.You can tell by his smile and admiring gaze he’s into you, but is there anything short of an electric cattle prod that will get him to bust a move?There could be a lot of explanations for his lack of action.Because even though it means having an uncomfortable conversation, he knows it's better to communicate than stew over things. In fact, he's so close to psychic he probably deserves his own TLC show.7. You're not nervous about bringing him to work functions or to meet your parents.You know he'll behave, and more than likely, he'll charm everyone in the room, because he can always read a person and find a way to relate to them.8. He doesn't need to have a dick-measuring contest whenever one of your guy friends comes around, because he doesn't see him as a threat or automatically assume other guys are trying to move in on you. (Granted, that doesn't mean he wouldn't do something if one of them hit on you.)9. He's really kind and caring whenever you babysit your nephew.Just don’t forget to give him back the pants, or at least share them, when he’s ready. He understands that sometimes you need space after a fight. He understands that things can be upsetting without being life-threatening or dangerous.
