Most Helpful Guy
Well, considering I PREFER shy girls, and I obviously prefer girls who are good looking, I would obviously choose the girl who is shy and good looking as opposed to a confident girl who is not as cute as the shy girl.
Ideally, I would want a girl who is shy and confident. I don't know why people tend to separate shy and confidence. Some people are the most extroverted and talkative people, and they're not confident at all, where as my cousin through marriage is arguably the most shy person I know and he brags about himself on his Facebook posts all the time (very confident.) So, the two are not mutually exclusive.
Overall, I'm more visual (like most men) than anything else. I tend to go for looks before personality traits.0
