There are sayings such as, 'Men Will Always Be Men' or 'All Men Are The Same'. But, when it comes to telling a girl that they like her, flash news is, 'All Men Are Not The Same'! When "love is in the air", most guys will openly tell you, along with the whole world, that they love you and want you to be theirs, but there exists a population of these shy guys (who I think are absolutely adorable) who are very quiet about their interest in you. They expect you to notice them when they are silently noticing you. They don't make it obvious for you, but you can't help notice their unusual behavior towards you, as well, right? Confusion, confusion all around! But you know what? The guy is equally confused and scared, within.
Signs to Look For
There is frequent eye contact
You always notice him watching you, and then, when you look back at him, he pretends to look behind you or starts looking elsewhere, like the floor, for example. The ground seems to be their favorite spot to escape. When he is caught looking at you, he pretends to look behind you or past you; notice carefully, he would still be looking at you.
His body language is different towards you
Notice the body language. He is all cool and open with others, but, when it comes to you, he turns out to be very quiet, shy, hesitant, and reluctant, especially when it comes to being friendly with you. Now, you will tend to misunderstand this, as if the guy is trying to ignore you and that he doesn't like you. But, the fact is that he is madly head over heels for you! That's why he can't find the courage to speak up, or even look at you when he knows you are looking at him. If you notice carefully, his face will go red and palms will go all wet when you are around. Don't try to touch his palms to check on that, he will definitely freak out!
Ends up asking dumb questions
It's not that he is going to purposely try to start a conversation with you, but if (unfortunately or fortunately for him) a situation occurs wherein he needs to say something, he just ends up asking a dumb open-ended question! And when you give a reply (figuring out in your mind what was he meaning to ask you), he just stays quiet and takes an excuse from you after a period of silence. Bottom line is, if he is not able to start a conversation with you, but has no intentions to end it too, he definitely likes you. Don't forget to notice the smile on his face and the glitter in his eyes. The guy will be blushing all the time while he is around you. :)
Bumps into you all the time
You end up seeing him almost everywhere you go! You can't miss out on this sign because it cannot be a coincidence. I mean do you expect him to be at all the places you visit, at the same time as yours, and then believe it to be a coincidence? Wake up! He likes you and that's why is following your schedule so that you notice him and that he doesn't get to miss a chance to observe you closely (so sweet).
Do you get anonymous notes?
This is something that a shy guy would think 1,000 times before doing! But then, he wants to tell you how he feels about you, without making it too obvious. If you see notes on your desk saying,"You're beautiful" or "You look pretty"; your shy guy is flirting with you mysteriously.
Becomes loud so that you notice him
As I mentioned earlier, he will make sure that you are within his line of vision wherever he sits or settles, be it at school, workplace, or social gatherings. He is too scared to tell it to you on your face, but within, he wants your attention desperately! So, while he is talking to his friends or colleagues, he will try to be a little louder than required, so that your attention goes to him. Even if it is for a minute, at least you noticed him, didn't you?
You are his all-time-favorite topic
If he can't stop talking about you to his close friends and can go on and on and on with it, he has definitely got the hots for you! If you guys happen to have some common friends, check with them. It might surprise you to find out what he actually feels about you, which is impossible to know with the shyness around.
He does small and sweet gestures
One of the signs is the small favors and gestures that he will do for you, even when they are not required. For example, he will help you pick up things that you might have dropped. Or, he will keep the lift waiting for you. Or, maybe compliment you each and every time. Perhaps, get coffee for you at your desk ..., the list can go on and on.
He gets uncomfortable when other guys talk to you
If you are still confused, this can be the sign to look for, and conclude that he is totally, surely, madly into you, and that's why he can't even bear the sight of you being with someone else! There is this feeling of insecurity in his mind that someone else might just sweep you away from him, and so he gets all uncomfortable and weird.
Avoid you in a group
If you and your 'shy guy' happen to be in one group, and he ends up talking to everyone but you, don't think that he hates you. It's an obvious sign that he has feelings for you and that he gets paranoid and shaky from the thought of even talking to you. I know it's weird, but I don't know what makes these guys think that girls are unapproachable! I think, that he thinks, you are his angel from heaven and the thought of you rejecting him scares the hell out of him.
So, if all these things are what your guy does to you, then it's clear that he likes you. I know it is very irritating as you can't wait for weeks, months, or even years for him to overcome his shyness. He doesn't even talk when you try to start a conversation! But all this comes from his nature and nothing else. Girls always want guys to approach them and take the first step. But when it comes to shy guys, all I would like to say is this: Girls, if you think that he is the one, then don't wait for him to take the first step! Take the initiative to be friends with him and make yourself approachable. Once the guy overcomes the shyness, he can be a great lover. When it comes to shy guys, they can not only be your partner for life, but also the best friends you never had. And forget about cheating on you, because you know the way they act when it comes to the female gender, right?
