Most Helpful Guy
Most Helpful Girl
Everybody gets nervous when chatting with the person they like, but for shy guys, it’s even worse; usually, they will give you either short, quiet, possibly even snappy answers or they’ll speak very quickly and ramble on out of sheer panic.
Again, note whether or not his speaking is extra awkward around you compared to around other people. Does he give you short "yes" or "no" answers and refuse to elaborate?
It's not that he's not interested in the conversation; it's that he's too interested in the conversation and doesn't want to say anything that might reveal his affection for you. Is he more confident around his friends? His friends offer him a little bit of psychological support.
He still doesn't want to mess up in front of you, but he's a little more willing to engage in conversation.
