I've been talking with this guy for the last month and he's very shy and I'm not the most outgoing person either. We both have made hints to each other that we should hang out soon. I told him I was free this Tuesday and Thursday and he told me that he was pretty sure that he didn't have anything going on either. The only problem with this is the fact that neither or us have mentioned anything to do yet.
I was always brought up that the guy should ask the girl to do something. So I've been letting it be up to him to figure it out, but I'm afraid that he's so shy that he might not come up with anything and will just chicken out.
So any suggestions on how to handle this? I would rather hang out 1 on 1 just because I get quiet and shy when I'm around a bunch of people, but I don't want it to feel awkward either. What is something a shy, quiet guy would want to do or feel comfortable doing? Or maybe I should just wait it out to see what he comes up with since he initially started the whole thing? I don't know what to do. So please and ideas would be helpful :) Thanks!

I was brought up the same way so first you should wait. But if he doesn't call, this is the 21st century and it is ok for girls to go after the guy. If its a first time thing, you should go somewhere where you can talk, laugh and feel comfortable around each other. I would suggest and activity like rollerblading since its the summer or (although corny) I take girls to the zoo, point is to go somewhere where you can get to know each other, dinner can get to uncomfortable or shy guys and movies you aren't doing anything. Someplace like the Zoo like I said gives you time to talk and if the talking stalls there are topics in front of you to talk about.1
