girls do you make a distinction between the two, also do view such people as having no life, because I think most girls misunderstand them
Most Helpful Guy
I'd like to see more girls answer this one. As we know, there's definitely a difference. I think both shy guys and introverted guys are at a disadvantage as far as getting a girlfriend IF they let their attitude/personality keep them from talking to girls and making moves. I'm both shy and introverted, so I know. Girls want guys to make moves--guys who are confident and fun. For the introvert, the challenge is to push oneself to reach out and socialize; for the shy guy, the challenge is to overcome anxiety and fear.
But as long as shy and/or introverted guys are taking baby steps to improve their social skills and confidence, they'll have nothing to worry about.
One note about shy/introverted girls: they may also be at a disadvantage in dating, because even if they like a guy, they'll have a hard time reciprocating his advances. I suppose girls who are like that feel just as much pain as the shy/introverted guys.
Best of luck.2
