If we truly want to know how shy people show affection, we need to enter their thought process. So many gay guys today admire extroverts. If you’re not outgoing or eager for the spotlight, most of the time you’re considered awkward or pretentious. Being a shy guy in the gay community can be one of the hardest things to deal with, but when push comes to shove it’s us extroverts who need to be schooled – not them.
Shyness has nothing to do with a lack of self-confidence, however they do have a hard time convincing themselves that anyone likes them. Because of this, they’ll remain inside their shells until it’s safe to express their feelings. Shy guys are very observant and notice things that most people don’t. This is an amazing quality to have and, in a way, much more authentic.
Too many guys today try to get noticed. Often times it becomes more about them than anything else. Shy guys are mysterious without meaning to be, but just because they like to keep us guessing doesn’t mean they’re not worth our time. Instead of giving up on them, here are a few signs you should look out for:
He Looks Away When You Make Eye Contact
Shy people have active internal lives and are much more comfortable thinking and feeling rather than showing it externally. Keep that in mind when you see him checking you out. This means he was at one moment blocking the world away and focusing solely on you – until you interrupted him. He’s used to his imagination being his best friend and as soon as someone catches him inside it, he’s bound to get a little nervous.
