Just because your shy why does that mean your not good with women? I don't agree that women don't like shy guys, it depends on what your comfortable with and I would rather have a shy guy any day than some of the egos on legs walking about. When you are shy, sometimes you could be doing with a boost in confidence - and there are plenty of books, web-sites, DVD's and so on to help with this. But even after getting advice from these sources, the best way is just to be yourself. It's not a crime to be shy and it's not unattractive either. I do agree with StevoMc that practice does help, it certainly helps to build your confidence. Lots of luck.
