So I like a guy and for all I know he is a bit socially awkward. But he seems very sweet at least toward me and I think he likes me. He doesn't talk much and is almost always on his own.
My friend doesn't know I have a cruah on him and I told her about him flirting with me and she told me he was weird and that she didn't like him because he is so unsure of himself and acts so timid and that men should be confident. I don't know what to do, what if I am seeing everything through rose tinted glasses and she is right?

In high school I was quite. People called me a lot of things. Weird, timid, lacking in confidence, a loner. When a kid hear's all of this often his life at school becomes just get through another day without pushing someone to say something rude about you. I left for college made lots of friends joined a fraternity and would've been voted president if I wasn't competing against my best friend and graduating. I'm going to med school now, I modeled, I acted, I raced cars, skydived, worked in a zoo, blah blah blah. And now when ever I see people from high school they're shocked to know that I'm me. The funny thing is absolutely nothing changed about me. What happened was in high school I realized I had a better life simply avoiding people then facing the mocking that would happen if I tried to show the real me. Maybe you should ignore what your friends say. He may not be weird at all. He may just be like me a kid that got a bad reputation he could never get rid of. (If it matters I spent my first semester at that high school sulking because I lost all contact with my friends from my old school. I moved in the middle of the year so I got labeled as the new kid. And since I really didn't want to be there I kinda kept to myself. So the new kid became the weird kid)0

No! Just because someone is introverted or/and shy does not make them weird. If he is a nice guy go for it and forget what your friend says. How do you know that she doesn't have a crush on him, herself and is trying to turn you off him. Not saying that is the case. Why should you care if your friend doesn't like him. You like him and that is all that matters. If he seems like a nice guy I do not see why you shouldn't hang out with him at least0
