What is it about shy guys? They’re so darn irresistible yet so infuriating. If you find yourself falling for the quiet guy, don’t give up hope if he’s not chewing your ear off. We’re showing ya ways to crack open his shell—and see if he likes ya back.
1. Talk about
something you know he likes.
You wanna catch him in his comfort zone. If you bring up a
topic his all-time fave topic, he’ll be more likely to open up and share more. Ask
him to school you in classic rock history—and make sure you’re interest
(nodding your head, showing your pearly whites—the works). If he’s gabbing
about his strong suit, he won’t feel awkward or embarrassed.
2. Boost his
Once you got him chatting about his interests, dole out the
compliments. Guys love having their egos boosted. If he’s feeling confident,
he’ll be much more likely keep chatting, and find a reason to chat with you again
3 Drop obvious hints
that you like him.
Chances are he won’t want to risk making a move with you
unless he’s positive you’re into him. Most guys are scared of embarrassing
themselves—this goes double for shy guys. As you’re dropping hints, if he seems
to respond positively and keeps wanting to talk to ya, he’s probably feeling
the same way.
4. Send him a text or
message on social media.
This way, he’ll have time to think about his responses and
won’t feel so pressured to think of the right thing to say on the spot. It’ll
take some of the stress of having a fast-paced, in-person conversation away and
he’ll be more comfortable. If he starts responding quickly, take that as a good
sign that he’s interested.
5. Initiate a hang
Ask him out, but not necessarily on a ‘date’ date. Think: a
low-pressure study sesh or a laid-back lunch. An actual romantic date could be
too intimidating for him, so keep it light and friendly and see where it goes.
When he says something even remotely funny, or if he’s just being a cutie, laugh and smile at him to let him know you’re enjoying his company. He needs the positive feedback. Show him he’s keeping you entertained and interested.
