This quick guide to shy guy body language and shy girl body language will tel you everything you need to know about dating shy men and shy women.
Shy guys and shy girls can be the hardest people to understand. They don’t talk to anyone. They never open up about their feelings. And if you ask them a personal question they’ll run a mile. Trust me, I know, I was insufferably shy for 15 years of my life (“Hi, Paul,” people would say as I quickly ran away from them, lest I might be forced to actually say something. Sigh.)
Shy people don’t speak. So the only thing you’ve got to go on is their body language. But even their body language is confusing. The problem is that shy guy body language so closely resembles disinterested body language. Shy guys and girls can seem disinterested even when they’re totally smitten with you. For instance, consider this example: a shy guy looks at a girl he’s attracted to then suddenly looks away.
Many women would take this to mean he doesn’t like her, which is what this body language would mean for most guys, with shy people it actually means the opposite: the guy is interested but afraid to show it. So, what are we left with with shy people? No words. Next to no communication. Confusing body language. But don’t worry. Having been a shy person for long, I know how they work, and I’m about to share everything I know with you!
People’s Body Language
shy-guy-body-languageOkay, so the body language of shy people can be confusing. But let’s not allow that to get our spirits down. Let’s go ahead and look at precisely what we can determine from the o’ so confusing body language of shy people.
Gaze: The gaze used in shy guy body language is the opposite of usual body language. A shy guy who is attracted to a girl will look at her often but will also look away anytime he’s spotted. To read shy guy body language by gazes, pay less attention to the actual gaze length (the length of time he / she looks at you in one go) and more attention to the number of times you spot him / her looking at you. In other words, if he’s looking at you often but always looks away anytime you look at him, he almost certainly likes you a lot.
Dilated Eyes: This is one body language tell that will stay the same for a shy guy as for other people. A shy guy or shy girl’s eyes will still dilate when they look at someone they like. If his pupils get larger when he looks at you, he’s attracted to you.
Smile: A shy guy will smile at someone they like but with a tight smile (their lips are held tightly together). This is caused by the fact that the shy person is happy to see the person they like, but afraid to open their mouth and speak. This can make them look as though they’re being secretive, where in fact their shyness is forcing them to keep their feelings secret. He can’t open his mouth because he is afraid to start talking, so he holds hits lips closed tight.
People’s Body Language
Turned Head Rather than Body: Confident people turn their whole body to face someone they’re attracted to when looking from a distance, but the shy guy / shy-mangirl will only turn their head while their body remains pointing elsewhere. Usually, their body will point to an exit.
Think about it like this. His head is saying, “Holy cow, she’s hot,” while his body is saying, “I’m scared let’s get the hell out of here.”
