If a guy (painfully shy unfortunately) liked a girl for a long time, but now the girl has gotten tired of waiting for something to develop and has moved on, (he had his opportunities but messed them up) would the fact that she's not interested anymore put him off going for it and doing something about it? Would it make him more nervous that there's a chance she'll knock him back now cos she's moved on?

You have a good point. If he was too hesitant when you were more available, it seems like the change in your direction would make him more reluctant to try. Even if he suddenly realized the consequences of not having made a move before, he may feel like he can't now. If she ran out of patience that's one thing, but if she really acts uninterested, then he could well accept the situation as a closed door.
On the other hand, in your question it sounds like maybe you would like him to wake up and come running to catch you. Otherwise why worry what he's thinking? If he came to you and said, "I've been blind, I'm crazy about you and have been for a long time. You're the one. Give me a chance." Would you be open to that? If so, then you haven't moved on entirely. But how will he know that?
