I'm dating a very shy guy. He is a total gentleman and very handsome. I really like him. He built up the courage to ask me out twice. I have reciprocated and asked him out a few other times. So far so good, but everything is moving SUPER SUPER SUPER slow. 3 alone dates in + 2 hangouts where we did other stuff with friends but mostly talked to each other, and he still has not made any kind of physical move: no kiss, holding hands, etc. He also still gets nervous around me a bit on occasion (as if he was worried he could mess up something). I find him totally adorable. Since he is really good looking, and my friend told me multiple girls have asked him out before and he just turned them down, I was wondering… is this the type of guy who is just very shy and only makes an effort once in a while with someone he really likes or is he likely to be dating multiple people at the same time (it may not be all the girls that are after him, but maybe some other ones that are more his type?) ? Essentially, do really shy, hot, selective guys tend to date multiple people at the same time or are they more likely to date exclusively from the beginning? I have not asked him this question yet, but it is sort of too soon, but I eventually will.

If a guy is really shy it is more unlikely he will date more than one girl, if only for the reason it is hard for him to ask even that one girl out. That however is no guarantee. You need to talk to him about the two of you being exclusive so you are on the same page.
I think you are going to need to take and start getting more physical with him. Hold his hand, snuggle, brush lent off his shirt, any reason to touch him will work. Things like that should help him feel more comfortable touching you.1
