For whatever reason, shy guys seem to "self-sabotage" relationships with new women. I am really into this shy guy and its almost like he is avoiding getting to know each other. I know I'm not the first girl to run into this problem with him but he has been married before, so she got through his shell somehow. How did she do it? Anyone out there that knows how to capture this rare breed of man? Tips, ideas, personal experience. I'm open. Thanks!

I have to wonder how he's so shy even after all you've gone through. Are you positive that he likes you? Are you sure he counted your last "date" as a date?
I can kind of see from his perspective as I used to be one of the shyest guys you've met. I can still be shy. However, the last four and-a-half years of my life have put some iron into my personality (joined the military) thereby reducing my shyness, but never eliminating it.
The only way to get him is to open him up. That was how my girlfriend got me. I was very stubborn in opening up to her until she (metaphorically) backed me against the wall and pried me open like an oyster.
Right now he is probably content with the current situation. You need to be more forceful, but don't run him over as well. That is easier said than done, and you'll really have to play it by ear.0
