Okay so I like this girl and I'm still at it.
I haven't done MAJOR flirting but just enough that she (or at least I think) knows I like her. I have touched her but she never seems to touch me back or initiate contact. She seems very distant in person, much more than say... her much more lively emails.
On top of that, she always smiles at me but she never takes an aggressive stance. I'm completely dumbfounded by how this girl is acting.
I think she's really beautiful inside and out. But her complete lack of reciprocated flirting tells me maybe she doesn't care. She has my number but never calls or text. I would, but I never got her number.
I'm probably going to ask her out again tomorrow (didn't really get a response the first time...), but I need to know is it really common for shy girls to not flirt back? Or to just wait and wait and wait for me to put my foot down.
Most Helpful Girl
I can tell you, being extremely shy around guys myself, the answer is pretty much yes :/
Shy girls are usually pretty much also the nervous and insecure girls and are afraid of making a move. We're afraid so much that the guy might not actually like us (in THAT way) that we're afraid of embarrassing ourselves or ruining the friendship if the feelings aren't mutual. Shy girls like me usually need some more obvious approaches from guys to feel secure enough to flirt back. Also, I tend to rely on mutual friends of the guy and me to find out from them what he thinks. All in all though, shy girls can be bad at flirting. My best advice would be to try and be more obvious (but not too aggressive because that can scare a shy girl). Do stuff like complimenting her (a simple "you look very pretty" can suffice) or put your arm around her, listen to her and look her in the eye, ask her about herself and show that you're interested in getting to know her, etc, etc, etc.0
