I am dating a shy girl
People may also be projecting their own fears and prejudices onto the behavior of shy good looking women ("She's hot, she'd never like a guy like me.
She's not laughing at my jokes because she's stuck up like all pretty girls", "She'd never want to be friends with me. She's like all those catty popular girls from high school.").
This piece was a little different to write for me, since being a guy, I didn't have the benefit of being able to draw on my firsthand experiences to inform my points (though you'll still see me interjecting a male perspective in parts).Instead I had to rely on my observations and research on what shy women go through.
