20 Signs He Wants You (But He’s Too Shy To Make A Move)

A guy who is shy probably won’t make an immediate move, but if he’s really interested in you, he will make some moves. While he doesn’t necessarily have to pursue the person he’s interested in to prove that he’s interested, he will naturally adopt some behaviors that make it obvious. Some are more understated than others, and there are also those that he might not even realize he’s doing!

But figuring out how to translate these actions can be the key to finding out whether the guy who hasn’t made his move yet is just shy, or whether he’s not interested at all.

Check out these 20 signs that he wants her, but he’s too shy to do anything about it.

20. He Makes Excuses To See Her Rather Than Asking Her Out


If someone is interested in you, some part of them will want to see you, even if they’re shy or nervous. But if they are shy, they might not have the confidence to directly ask you out. Instead, they’ll make excuses to see you that doesn’t leave them open to possibly being rejected.

For example, if a guy who likes you finds out that you’re going to be at a certain party, he might try to score an invite. Or he might want to catch up to ask you a specific question or drop by to give you something. All these little things allow him to see you without having to ask you out.

19. His Body Language Is A Giveaway


We can tell a lot from a person’s body language. When he’s interested in you, he’ll subconsciously do things that give it away, even if he tries to hide it. All you have to do is know what to look for! The biggest thing to look out for is eye contact.

Guys who want you will tend to stare at you when they think you’re not looking. They’ll also be touchier with you than a guy who’s totally not interested, and you’ll find that they do things like brush up against you when you’re walking together or even sit quite close to you. Also, keep an eye out for blushing!

18. But Can’t Look Her In The Eyes


Although a shy guy will tend to stare at someone that he likes, that’s not usually the case when he’s actually having a conversation with that person. Maintaining eye contact with someone can take confidence at the best of times, let alone when you have feelings for them!

Instead, a guy who does like you but is more shy or introverted will probably avoid looking into your eyes when you’re talking to him, even though you’ve caught him staring when he thought you weren’t looking. Another body language that could suggest he likes you might include him fidgeting his fingers or constantly moving his feet.

Jealousy is a huge hint that someone is at least a little bit interested in you, and luckily, this one is super easy to spot! If a guy is jealous when he sees you talking to other guys, he’ll probably keep looking over. He might be cold or even a little hostile to whomever you were talking to.

You might catch him staring at them, perhaps wondering how you feel about them and what they might have that he doesn’t. On the other hand, a guy who doesn’t want you probably couldn’t care less that you’re talking to other men.
