Most Helpful Guy
Shyness can be attractive for both guys and girls.
"They are both enticing and elusive, and people spend lifetimes chasing after such men [and women], trying to shatter their unattainability. (The power of apparently unattainable people is devilishly seductive; we want to be the one to break them down.) They also wrap themselves in ambiguity and mystery, either talking very little or talking only of surface matters, hinting at a depth of character you can never reach." -Robert Greene
I've always been reserved and was really shy as a kid and teenager, but I've gotten pretty good at conveying there's passion and depth beneath the surface. You can make it sound like you're subduing your most natural qualities, with vague comments here and there. It takes self control, but it fascinates nonetheless. When shy women master this, they can cast a spell and get guys hooked.2
