Some men are very overt in their approach and you will know when they mean business. And then there are the shy guys who are extremely conscious of their feelings for you but they won’t let it out directly.
All shy guys are faced with one dilemma – ‘to let know’ or ‘not to let know’ – when it comes to their love interest.
They usually never let you know directly unless you indicate your interest first and they don’t catch on to your hints very quickly either so you have to be very direct.
8 Signs a Shy Guy Likes You
As mentioned earlier, shy guys are not very direct when it comes to expressing their interest.
So if you are interested in a shy guy and you want to know if he is as interested in you, then you will have to look out for subtle signs that indicate he likes you.
Let’s see what these subtle signs are:
1.) He Avoids Direct Eye Contact
If a shy guy is in love with you, he’s going to talk through his eyes but not directly.
Shy guys stare if they like you, that’s a fact, but they are quick to avoid your eye contact if you gaze in their direction.
They just can’t maintain eye contact for more than a second and they will either look down or sideways.
In other words, he would stare almost unconsciously at you but when he sees you looking at him he will become very self conscious and avert his glace. He might give you a polite smile if you catch him staring but he will look away while doing so.
2.) He Blushes When You Talk to Him
You can see a pink flush on his cheeks if you flirt with him or get close to him or even if you just have a casual conversation.
Shy guys are overly sensitive and self conscious, he’s been thinking or even obsessing about you in his mind and when you talk to him his natural shyness causes him to blush.
3.) He Becomes Self Conscious When You are Around
If you see him touching up his hair, scratching his face, twirling his fingers or getting fidgety whenever you are around, it would indicate that he has become very self conscious in your presence. This is definite sign of a shy guy liking you.
4.) He Stammers While Talking to You
Here’s a solid way of finding out if a shy guy likes you. Just start a casual conversation with him and see how he reacts to you.
If he stammers back a reply, while looking all around the room but at you, then you know he has an intense crush going.
5.) He Gets Your Number from Your Friends and Texts You
It is quite natural for a shy guy to never ask your number directly. If he’s going crazy in his love for you, he might muster the courage to get your number from your friends, or from some other source, and text you on some pretext (usually a pretty lame one).
6.) He Interacts With You on Social Media
Interacting on social media is a lot easier for him than a direct interaction initially.
He will definitely try to find you on social media (like Facebook or Twitter) and send you a friend request. You will also get a lot of likes from him on your posts and pictures.
And if your response is positive, he might even chat with you or send you a personal message on Facebook or Twitter.
He might start by sending you a few jokes or forwards, and if your response is positive, he will start getting a little more personal.
7.)He is Very Sensitive to Your Touch
If you happen to touch him playfully, or just casually, he might respond as if a he got an electric shock. You will see his face go all pink, he might suddenly move away or just get overly self conscious. It just shows your touch means a lot to him.
8.) He Offers to Help You With Your Work
This might be one way he will try to approach you. He will offer to help you with your work or offer to drop you home. This is a big step for a shy guy and you should take it as a definite sign that he likes you and is in love with you.
So these are the common signs when a shy guy likes you. It might be a little frustrating to see that he is not being direct in expressing his interest but this is how shy guys act around a girl they like.
