Do women like shy guys? Must read for men and women

Yes, women like shy guys. Wait, women don't just like shy guys. Women wish that there were more of them on this planet. Don't we, ladies?


I'm not going to give you complicated reasons nor am I going to work out complex logic. What you will read below are simple statements which I think apply to most shy guys. So are you ready to know why women like shy guys? Let's find out.


Women like shy guys because....


1) Women like shy guys because they have a lot of potential. If you're a woman, you know what I'm talking about. If you're a man, go to point #2.


2) Women like shy guys because you can have amazing conversations with them once they open up.


3) Women like shy guys because they are funny - intelligently funny, not just plain dumb funny.


4) Women like shy guys because their souls are very attractive, and can be great soul mates.


5) Women like shy guys because they don't want to get in your pants on the first date. Well, maybe they do, but they don't make if too apparent.


6) Women like shy guys because they are handsome, AND cute.


7) Women like shy guys because they enjoy activities other than drinking beer and watching the game.


8) Women like shy guys because they don't think of sex 24/7. Well, maybe they do. But their brain can think of things other than sex too!


9) Women like shy guys because they don't lie (fingers crossed!).


10) Women like shy guys because they will spend hours with you in the coffee shop and still not get bored.



Are you a shy guy? If you are, be proud that you are one! Your shyness is your asset - use it to your advantage!

Hahahah Funny...And I was thinking on getting rid o' my shyness :D Thanks! seems its not so bad to be shy ^__^ but just a question, how did you get a profile so accurate?

When I was a teenager and a young man, I was rather shy. And I thought it was a negative. Nice to know that it might have been thought of as a positive by some members of the opposite sex. It certainly didn't hurt me a bit as I was able to find the soul mate you alluded to in your hub. I really enjoyed this hub and look forward to reading more of your future hubs. Voted up and funny.

Husky1970 you said it, when you say ".......I was rather shy. And I thought it was a negative." Cliché stereotyping makes many think that being shy is bad or negative, but that's not true. We all know that, but just don't accept it.

And more importantly, I'm happy for you, since you found your soul mate. Consider yourself very, very lucky. And since you appreciate this fact, I'd say that your soul mate too is very lucky for finding someone like you. I hope and wish the very best for both of you!

Again, thanks for the lovely comment.

roberto, I'm glad that you think I got the 'profiling' accurate. I was a little nervous and afraid that I'd be accused of 'stereotyping'. Maybe its because of interaction with different people over the years?

Don't try too hard to dodge the shyness. And a humble attempt at chivalry won't hurt either.

I was always a really shy guy, and I have to say pretty much all of this here describes how I am. I'm just not charismatic enough to meet a lot of people, especially women. If anything, it sounds like you're kind of stereotyping the average guy in a lot of these and rightfully so, the guys who just want to drink and watch the game. Really good hub.

Hi Ben

When you say ".... I'm just not charismatic enough to meet a lot of people, especially women...", a lot depends on what type of women you want to meet.

Moreover, not all of us are born charmers, and that's the beauty, isn't it? That every one of us is different?

I'm glad you like the hub!

I am quite a shy guy but some of the points don't really add up to me, hehe... like number 6??!! Anyway, I do believe that woman would always go for those bubbly and talkative types first. I think just because they are more approachable than the shy type.

Hi myi4u.

I think that even people who tend to be shy can be very bubbly and superb conversationalists once they open up. Maybe they wait till they reach certain comfort levels with certain people before they open up?

Thanks

myi4u it all depends on what you express with your body...if you are always with your head down, bad posture and sitting in a corner, you might attract either, a girl with a high motherly-caring treat or someone who wants just to bully on you, sometimes talkative guys become the "FRIENDS" of girls not necessarily their couple, you can be shy, but doestn mean you cant denote your intelligence with your eyes or in class or through any other method without really getting into a direct contact with someone you might like, it all depends on you, you might not be handsome but if you nurture your other skills then you might be more attractive for girls than just a Football Star Player who can only talk about their last night party and after-party.

Hi Tom

Just like all men aren't the same, every woman is different. The 'Bad boys' and 'bad girls' will always be the eye candy of society (which may not always be a good feeling). But like you said, why try and be different from who you really are?

I'm glad you enjoyed the hub. Thanks.

Seems all your comments are from men, so I'll say something. I'm American, so it may be different for me, but I'd say shy women or women who need to be in charge like shy guys. I'm personally not against the quiet ones, but I'm not likely to notice them. On the other hand, my husband is a strong, silent type. We met in a club and he was original and funny to catch my attention. Later, he told me he'd seen me a few times before there (we do like our regular watering holes) but had seen me turn down too many guys and so was too nervous to approach me until fate (and a spilled drink) intervened. My point would be, I suppose, that shyness won't "catch" a lioness for you. (cute picture, by the way)It's not necessarily a deterrent to a relationship, though. Guys, if she doesn't know you're alive, it won't happen, no matter what a nice guy you are. Princess, thought provoking hub... TY

Hi northweststarr

That's exactly the point - "...Shyness is not a deterrent to a relationship".

Your feedback provides tips and insight into a real-life relationship between two contrasting personalities. Are we taking notes here, ladies and gentlemen?

Thanks for a top comment and giving everyone something to think about.

PwP,

I look at it this way for shy folk- "The journey of 1000 miles begins with one step".For those that are shy - (I used to be) it can seem like 1000 miles to take the first step-I have learned "Nothing ventured , nothing ined"

more cliches you say sure I have tons...HA

Whatever you find useful use it, if you don't, try adding something to the community, always give something that will help others, Maybe she may not have covered everything about shy guys, but the real thing is...she isn't a shy guy right? its a "SHE" lets rather give thanks she knows about us and many of our "cliches" or we would be doomed if no one could understand us, she aint an almighty God who knows everything, its a Human.

Robert,

BACK off- i was making a point telling my story- not DEGRADING ANYONE I said i did not 100% agree but still thought it was great that's the nicest thing a preson who does not agree can actually say I don't think the princess took offense and i kinda wonder why YOU did....

Do you think I have to agree 100% to think something is good if so... ii pity you...

Shy guys may not be the ones to make the first move. But they tend to open up after comfort levels are high. It's just a matter of time.

I have voted up for this awesome hub that is great news for me because I am a very shy guy!

It is hard to imagine that someone who has been a performing musician, appeared in television shows and written about in newspapers to be a shy person. For now, we will just have to take your word for it, won't we?

Thanks heaps for stopping by and giving your thumbs up. Much appreciated!

Thanks for your article=]. I'm not as shy as I used to be, but certainly inexperienced with ladies and generally I don't think I'm an attractive person. Thanks for helping me feel a little better about being a little lonely.
