Are people just trying to comfort me when they say that all the boys that like me are shy?

Whenever people ask if I have a boyfriend and I tell them that no guys like me at the moment they all say the same thing, that they are all probably just too shy or afraid to tell me. The thing with that is I don't know if they are saying it because they feel bad for me or if they genuinely believe that. My very straightforward uncle, my best friend, or anyone that I mention this to all the same thing. I don't want anyone to feel bad for me because I don't have a boyfriend.
