Being able to spend time with someone without the pressure to come up with witty and intelligent things to talk about is a beautiful thing.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. Great food makes for a lighthearted conversation about one thing you both have in common — the meal you’re sharing.
For a man, I imagine this can be quite frustrating.
Getting a woman to come out of her shell and interact with you can be very difficult, especially if she is naturally timid or introverted.
Not only does this make it challenging to get to know a woman you’re interested in, it can make for a very boring phone conversation or a completely one-sided discussion at dinner.
Yes, going out with a woman who is relatively shy can make for one long date, not to mention a wary relationship.
One of the best ways to counteract shyness is to center the time spent with your sweetheart on an activity that doesn’t involve talking.
