Here are 12 things all shy girls do when they’re in a new relationship: 1. You get super awkward when it comes time to meet your S. Also, I’m attracted to outgoing people, and a lot of them don’t understand how to deal with shy girls. I’ve been dating my boyfriend for over four years now, and I’ve obviously gotten so comfortable with him that it’s a little ridiculous. My shyness drove him crazy in the beginning, so I totally get what you shy girls with new boyfriends/girlfriends are going through. There are women who were pretty shy in high school and during the first year or two of college, and it delayed the start of their dating lives somewhat, but they got worked through the worst of it by their early twenties.And then there are the women in their mid-twenties or later who are still very inexperienced (more on that later on).Others pointed out how shy women have their own struggles as well.
A new relationship is a super exciting time when you’re getting to know someone and really enjoying that nice honeymoon stage that is hard to find in a more long-term dating situation. Because if you’re a shy girl, like me, a new relationship is an exciting but nerve-wracking time when you’re trying to be really close with someone you still feel very awkward around. When your boyfriend/girlfriend isn’t around, you do whatever you can to avoid being near their parents. You very rarely speak up about how you feel or what you want. You take things pretty slow when it comes to hooking up.
It's just that they take their time opening up and feel vulnerable in exposing themselves to everyone.
Most people seem to think that shyness is synonymous with being an introvert.
This piece was a little different to write for me, since being a guy, I didn't have the benefit of being able to draw on my firsthand experiences to inform my points (though you'll still see me interjecting a male perspective in parts).
Instead I had to rely on my observations and research on what shy women go through.
