If you consider yourself a shy guy, you know how difficult it can be to navigate the dating world. You may be committed to finding love but struggle to make a move, approach an attractive woman or keep a conversation flowing naturally.
Some signs of shyness include:
-feeling awkward in social settings/new surroundings
-feeling uncomfortable when meeting new people
-experiencing physical symptoms, such as sweating, shaking or an upset stomach
-being overly preoccupied with how others perceive you
It is only natural that your shyness will affect your approach to dating and intimacy, as it may feel overwhelming to put yourself out there with a new woman, especially a woman you are interested in.
Despite some of the above challenges you may face, your shyness does not have to interfere with your relationship goals if you are willing to conquer your fears and stay committed to building a rewarding connection with your ideal woman.
