Dating may become an ordeal if you're new to the process and on top of that, shy. A quite restrobar with pleasing ambience will be a good idea because at least you'll be able to hear what she says and vice-versa. Your head can get clouded with questions like what should I wear? In order to strike a meaningful conversation, you must listen carefully to what she says. Shy people are normally good listeners but some of them can be so caught in their anxiety or self-consciousness and can be distracted from hearing the other person. Now when we say that you have to be a good listener, nowhere do we imply that you should remain mum and let her be the “motormouth”. Also, women have a tendency of continuing to speak for long stretches of time.

Because of this, shy guys who can’t work up the nerve to talk to a girl they like get screwed.

In order to date a shy guy, you need to be comfortable being the one who takes control and makes the moves… If you’ve ever had, or currently have, a crush on a shy guy, then you know how difficult it can be to deal with them.

As a shy girl, I know that us quiet people can be a little hard to talk to.

But sometimes, all a dude needs is a girl to coax him out of his shell – and there’s no reason you can’t be that girl!

Shy people may need to make a bit more effort to contribute their fair share to the conversation. So you have to deal with that as well by making provisions for polite interferences in between her speeches, if any!

Preparing a mental list of topic of conversations is advisable.

At least for the time you're with her, try to leave your shyness outside. This will exhibit your self-confidence and she'll feel attracted. Give yourself and the other person sufficient chance and time to get to comfortable.

A common misconception in the dating world is that the guy always has to approach the girl to make the first move.

In order to date a shy guy, you need to be patient, confident and willing to do some work.
