Dating advice for introverted/shy women (or men!)?
posted by anonymous to human relations (11 answers total) 12 users marked this as a favorite
I'm a little shy, very introverted and not at all aggressive. I tend to have two related problems in dating:
1. I don't know how to approach/ask out guys I'm interested in.
2. The only guys who ask me out are bold and aggressive, when I'd rather be with someone sweet and low-key.
I think my shyness makes me seem hard to approach or intimidating to people who are shy themselves. I don't make any moves on my own, and the only people who feel comfortable approaching me are outgoing enough to not be deterred by the wall I unconsciously build around myself. I'm ready for this to change. How can I make myself more approachable? How do I stop giving off this vibe that makes only aggressive guys confident enough to ask me out? Has anyone been in a similar situation?
