5 Strange Behaviors A Shy Guy May Exhibit in Front of a Woman He Likes

Some young men nowadays, including so-called metrosexual men, can be extremely passive when it comes to love and relationships. They often take a back seat in approaching the women they like. Worse, they may even fall victim to a high-pressured situation and end up exhibiting absurd behavior in the presence of a special person. Today, based on our latest survey, we will share some of the strangest behaviors men displayed in a bid of desperation.

  • 1. When faced with the woman of his dreams (i.e. you), he becomes clumsy and awkward.

    Even though he can communicate with you perfectly fine via email or telephone, when you show up in front of him, he suddenly seems nervous. “I kept checking her reactions. When she said something, I only came up with ‘Wow’ and ‘Sure’ in response to her,” an embarrassed young man in his late teens tells us. “I got too nervous—my mouth was completely dry and my palms got clammy,” describes a man in his 20s. Remarkably, we discovered that there are quite a few men who draw a blank in front of the woman they like.

  • 2. He gets too excited and he becomes extra chatty.

    He is overwhelmed at the chance to finally speak to you, and he barrages you with endless questions. “There’re so many things I wanted to learn about her and I fired off too many questions at once,” says a regretful young man in his 20s. “I finally had an opportunity to talk to her and I was too afraid to fall silent, so I went on and on about anything and everything,” recalls a man in his 20s. He’s been waiting for a chance to talk to you and your presence proves to be too much for him. He is bumbling on about something non-stop and, even worse, the things that come out of his mouth are not making sense. Try to calm him down by taking extra time to answer his questions.

  • 3. He cannot help staring at you and he looks away when your eyes meet.

    Instead of actually starting a conversation with you, he feels content just by staring at you. “I feel blissful just by looking at her. If she finds out I’ve been staring at her, she may find me creepy, so I look away,” explains a young man in his early 20s. “I try to keep the right distance from her, where it’s not too close, but she can still see me and I can patiently wait for her to strike up a conversation with me,” describes a man in his 20s. These types of men are generally passive and reluctant to make the first move. You need to take a chance and take the first step, or neither of you will ever find the opportunity to get to know each other.

  • 4. He pretends not to be affected by you.

    He worries about the next step if you find out he likes you, so he pretends to have little or no interest in you. “I have no idea how to act in front of her, and I always end up acting like I don’t care about her,” grunts a man in his 20s. “I’m her superior in the office, so it’s not okay to show favoritism towards her. I have to act unaffected,” reveals another man in his late 20s. Apparently, it’s not easy to act normally for some men, and they end up overplaying the part of the cool guy.

  • 5. He worries too much about rejection, so he stays out of your sight altogether.

    Before he even has a chance to get acquainted with you, he predicts the worst, and he’s unable to get closer to you because of his fear of rejection. “She’s too dazzling and radiant! I cannot handle the rejection so I try not to get near her,” confesses a young man in his 20s. “I’m terrified of my advances being denied. It’s safer to keep my distance and admire her from afar,” another man in his early 20s shares, almost whispering. Although they sound extremely pessimistic, these types of responses were surprisingly common in our survey.
