He is so talkative around his friends, people on the street even... but around me he is soooo quiet. It always gets so awkward when we're out to eat or driving in his car... he isn't talkative and funny with me like he is when he's with anyone else.
I've heard people say things about other guys who act quiet and shy around you that it's because they really really like you... but I don't know if I should assume that's the case with me. I can be quiet like that too which is why it's so awkward... we have literally nothing to say at times.
We've been together for a month. He was the one who asked me out, and he is extremely sweet and kind to me, and I really like him, it's just unnerving to me that he is so quiet only when he's alone with me.
What should I do? Nothing? Ask him if there's something I've done wrong, something bothering him, etc? Your advice is appreciated.

this sounds a lot like me. I know what he is feeling and it honestly made me loose out on a chance with a girl. every time he sees you his stomach flutters, his mind races and he has one thought that starts nagging at him. "don't f*ck up, don't f*ck up." he probably has his mind too fixated on what he shouldn't say that he forgets that he should be saying something at all. even though your mere presence is enough to make him happy, he probably doesn't notice that you and the relationship needs more. or if he does notice, he may not know what to say. I had that problem with a girl I liked and when I finally asked her out, I got rejected because even though I was a good friend and she liked me for it, she didn't think the relationship would go anywhere. so my advise, try breaking the silence with a story about how you goofed up, or make a mistake (not a big one mind you) and laugh it off out loud with him. all he needs is to realize is that it is ok for him to try something with you make a mistake. some guys are more conscientious than we are made out to be.0
