Not all men are alpha males. Not all men have it in them to talk to women, push themselves out of theircomfort zones, and make the move theyve been dying to make. Some men are shy — even wimpy. That doesnt make them bad men. It just makes them men whoneed some work.
We all have character flaws that need to disappear. Some people are outgoing pricks. Others are introvertedhermits whocant muster up the courage to say “hello.” Everyone is a bit different, and everyone is capable ofchange.
This is not to say that shy guys should just transform intoconfident, outgoing men. There’s no reason to be someone you’re not. There are plenty of women out there wholike the shy guy.
Women who like shy men like a challenge.They like the idea of helping a man break out of his shell. And believe me, there are plenty of men out there looking for a woman to do just that.
The only problem with dating a shy guy is you’re left to wonder if he actually likes you or is just being polite. (As to whether nice guys actually exist… let’s leave that topic for another day.)
It’s not easy to figure out the shy/silent/awkward guy — especially if he won’t start a proper conversation.Im sorry to say it, but you may need to be the one to make the move.
But should you make a move?
I know what you’re thinking. You don’t want to make a move because you’re afraid of getting turned down. You want to make sure he’s into you.
So here are a few signs the guy likes you but is just too scared to tell you:
Maybe he goes to “your” coffee place just about every day. If you work together, he might find himself nearyour desk or sitting near you at lunch.Maybe you see him at the water cooler more than anyone else.
A good sign that he likes you— but is too shy to tell you — is if he tries to be around you all the timeand doesn’t steal the spotlight. He’s trying to figure out how to make his move.
He doesn’t necessarily go over the top, but he does things a good friend would do, even though you dont consider each other good friends.
Hell save you a seat. Hell grab you a coffee or a donut. Hell share his snacks or his lunch —anythinghe happens to be munching on (I know this sounds silly, but when guys share their food, it means something).
He is always polite and respectful to you. And, most importantly, this feeling of warmth resonates from his body.
The truth is he can’t help smiling at you, but he does his best not to show it. He desperately wants to stare deep into your eyes, but hes afraid you won’t want to do the same.
When you two are chatting, his focus is entirely on you. This happens even when you’re in a group. I’d bet he’s looking at you even when you’re not saying anything, but he probably tries to hide this.
That new haircut. That new dress. Those new shoes. That new bag. That new shade of lipstick. Whatever it is youve discardedor added,hes likely to make a comment on it. Its his way of showing you he notices you.
Of course, he may not compliment you as often as hed like. But he definitely will give you a sincere compliment on occasion. Which — lets be honest — is better than most guys.
Sometimes, the nicest guys are the shyest. They dont see themselves as being the aggressive type, sothey have a difficult time doing things outside their comfort zones.
Its a shame, really, because a little bit more confidence would make their lives so much better (and they’d probably get more dates).
Some shy menwill find it in them to do what needs to be done, but others will miss out on amazing opportunities. Traditionally, men are supposed to court women, but this doesn’t help the shy guy.
If you like him, be the one to make a move. You really dont have anything to lose.
Friends are the family we get to choose.
Friendships tend to lastlongerthan a lot of relationships do. And when the relationships you thought would lastforever finally come to an end, your friends are there to pick up the pieces and make you feel whole again.
Theyre the people to whom we gowhen we cant find it in us to talk to our blood relatives, either out of embarrassment,fear of disappointmentor not wanting to be a burden.
Your friends wont judge you (hopefully), and theyve probably been through similar situations.
Im typically not one toannouncewhen Im feeling down, so I usually need my friends to pullit out of me.When your friend and theirSO breakup, theyre going to need you more than theyll probably admit.
Here are seventhings your friends are probably going to need from you after their earth-shatteringbreakup:
When someone has become such a crucial part of your life, its hard to remember you were happy long before you met them.Remind your friends that it wont be long before theyre feeling happy again. We all need to be reminded of that sometimes.
Even if youre on the verge of insanity,listeningto the same we were perfect for each other or he told me he loved me lines 100 times, let your friends talk it out. Let them repeat it over and over again, and listen intently every time.
They would do it for you, and they have, so its only fair you do it for them.
The most iconic line in all of Greys Anatomy came fromthe brilliant Cristina Yang: Dont let what he wants eclipse what you need. Hes very dreamy, but he is not the sun. You are.
Cristina could not be more right.No oneshould come into your life and make you think you have to revolve around them. You are the sun. Theyare not.
For those who would rather notdrink the night into oblivion, join them infinishing off atub of ice cream, while watching rom-coms that make you laugh and cry your eyes out.
According to allwomenstalk, some of the best, feel-good breakup movies are Forgetting Sarah Marshall, (500) Days of Summer, The Break-Up, Hes Just Not That Into You and Legally Blonde.
When they wake up next to that person inbed, reality will come as a bitter slap in the face.
Theyll sit around all day, waiting for their rebound to reach out, and when theydont (because they probably wont), its going to hurt 10 times more.
A lot of times, people think its their fault their SO didnt want to be with them, butthats usually not the case.
Sometimes, our friends justneed to be reminded that they didnt do anything wrong. They were beautiful before, and theyre still beautiful now.
Well, boys may not need much appearance boosting, but hearing that hes too good for her, or even too hot for her, will probably help him out too.
Some must-have songs on the feel-good playlist are Since U Been Gone by Kelly Clarkson, Survivor by Destinys Child, Picture to Burn by Taylor Swiftand Flavor of the Week by American Hi-Fi. Also, according to my roommate, Treat You Better by Shawn Mendes isa pretty good one as well.
Dont be the friend that thinks everything is okay just because youre friendisnt visiblyhurting.After a breakup, everyone hurts. Even if you cheated or you just werent in love anymore,the heartache is still pretty strong.
Its easy to feel lost and alone in the midst of a breakup, so let your friends know youre always there. After all, theyd do it for you.

Theroux tried to play it cool, of course, by saying he wouldnt shade his girlsex because hes not an 11-year-old, but I think he liked throwing the shade.
The way I see it, age is just a number. Theres no such thing as immature,especially when it comes to dealing with your new baes ex.
We all know theres a bit of an unsaid standoff between you and yourboyfriends ex, even if youguys are complete strangers. Which is why its super important to show her that yes, you are,in fact, the better girlfriend.
Now, the key to pulling off shade is to be discreet about it, because you dont want to come off all ~crazy~.
Heres how to subtly shade your SOs ex, a la Justin Theroux:
You dont want her to think youre a bitch (after all, you are the better person here). So do the whole OMG, WERE NEW BFFS!! thing. Play nice, plan a coffee date and pretend youre going toactually hang out.
Dont forget to compliment heron her outfit.
And while youre at it,blow her a kiss.
Recently, my friends and I were in the throes of a discussion about men.
(Weird, right? We never talk about men, dating or relationships.)
While we were describing a wonderful man who had major boyfriend potential, we inadvertently stumbled across what could be an easy litmus test to weed out the shady dudes and f*ckboys.
When you’re weighing the pros and cons of a gentleman who could be your next bae, ask yourself the following question: If he were to be MIA for six whole hours (during the day, so him being asleep isnt an option), where would your mind go?
Would you be sitting in a pit of angst, accompanied by some wine?
Would your shaky hands be refreshing all social media apps, second after second, for some sort of clue?
Would you be hoping he was dead or at least severely injured?
Would you suspect youre being ghosted?
Or, would you have zero worries about his whereabouts?
Would you immediately assume he was with his dad, or he lost service on the golf course?
Would you just know he would call as soon as possible, and he was doing nothing shady at all?
That, right there, is how it should be.If you assume he’s not doing anything wrong at all, that means you trust him.
Of course, in all relationships, trust is pretty much key.Correct?
The men who give you high anxiety that can only be cured by alcohol and a mild, over-the-counter sedative are the f*ckboys and the shade balls.
We have all been there, done that and dated them anyway.
Weve dealt with being treated badly, and we’ve continually had to deal with broken trust in relationships.
Itseems to be the status quo of dating nowadays.
We choose these guys.
Yet, we all complain about being single and the lack of actual decent men left in our dwindling singles’ pool.
If we are really over all these idiots, then the six-hour test is a pretty damn great way to judge whether or not a potential bae is a f*ckboy secretly masquerading as a good guy.
Let’s take a closer look at this.
If a f*ckboy goes MIA, your mind starts going over all the possibilities about what the eff he’s doing and why he can’t bring himself to answer his phone.
As you try to talk yourself off a ledge of worry and destruction, panic overcomes you.
After about five unanswered texts and three calls, you think you physically can’t bear this anymore.
You already know you look batsh*t crazy by now, so what’s one more text or call?
These f*ckboys are a dime a dozen. Theyre all alike with their attention-seeking selfies, cocky attitudes, effortless late-night texts to come over and thirsty Snapchats.
The current douchebag who is ignoring you is like all the rest, which brings back some memories youd rather forget.
You take a journey down memory lane and contemplate the f*ckboys youve dated in the past, the insecurities you still have from those not-so-lovely experiences and the bitter memories of being let down and screwed over by them.
How much more of this sh*t can a girl take?
You will now find yourself hoping, praying and even begging God and the universe to throw you a bone and send a good dude your way.
Will you ever be able to find someone you trust that much? God, we hope so.
In a relationship, you should never have to worry the man you gave your heart to is ignoring you for hours on end because he’s doing something that could hurt you.
We all deserve more, and we all deserve to be with a guy who passes this clever little litmus test.
Having trust in a relationship enables you to actually be happy and worry-free.
F*ck the shady dude who surely makes decisions based on whowill entertain him whenever and wherever he so wishes.
Hold out for the one who passes the six-hour test.
