Not every guy has the courage to tell you that he likes you. Shy guys are not playing games with you, they just don’t have the confidence. Sometimes, he is just scared to approach you. It is not that you are scary to be approached, he isn’t just sure of what your reply would be. 

Most shy guys are usually introverts, he might not be a popular someone or someone who connects with people. If he is dying to reach you, it means his intentions are true.

Even Though he doesn’t associate himself with people, he will be willing to take that risk because of you. If you notice he likes you and you are interested in him, relieve him of the stress by approaching him. You don't need to ask him out, let him know you can be friends. 

If you can take the first step, he will take it up from there. Many people think it is caused by an inferiority complex, it is just his nature. 

When you become close to him, you will learn that he is lively and not boring as you predicted. Here are some signs that a shy guy likes you:

1. He Steal Glances at You

Don’t expect a shy guy to walk up to you and tell you he likes you. He would have spent months thinking about how to go about it. 

Anytime you come around, he steals glances at you. He won’t be able to look you straight in the eye. 

You start to wonder, ‘Why can’t he walk up to me and ask if we can be friends?’. Shy guys keep waiting because they are unsure of the response they will receive from you. 

In his mind, he’s wondering if you would gladly accept him or embarrass him in public. 

If you catch him staring at you almost every time, when your eyes meet, he quickly looks away. He certainly likes you but feels shy to approach you.

2. You Sense He’s Interested But Making No Move

Since ladies are always asked out every time, they know when a guy likes them. They are experienced enough to know how men sound, look, behave when they want a relationship. Ladies can predict a guy’s next move if he wants a relationship or doesn’t. 

You sense he’s interested in you but he is making no move to win your heart. Both of you feel this connection but none is ready to take the first move. 

Sometimes, he wants you to ask him out. Not necessarily to ask him out but to take the first move. 

If you can give him the green light, he would have the luxury of expressing his mind. Always keep in mind that this isn’t intentional it’s just his nature. Make advances toward him, he will get the message and use it wisely.
