You can tell by his smile and admiring gaze he’s into you, but is there anything short of an electric cattle prod that will get him to bust a move?There could be a lot of explanations for his lack of action.
So be careful about how much (and which) initiative you take.
Unfortunately there is no quantifiable or simple rule here, as his threshold for embarrassment will vary in proportion to his shyness and his pride, which are different in every man. Well, for starters, in the early stages, you will need to give him blatant signs of your interest.
For the shy guy, it starts with his heart and his head.
He already likes you, so find a way to get a good one-on-one conversation going. His shyness will probably bring out boldness and strength in you, even if you tend to be bashful around bad boys and superheroes. Try to keep the pressure low and the comfort factor high.
Maybe he is just paralyzed by your stunning beauty and is afraid he will embarrass himself at the moment of truth.
Find the cause, and you will have a good shot at getting to the next level.
If not, you might just have to insist that he practices several times a week at your place. Sometimes life demands that you reverse roles for a while.
A woman can lead a major corporation or a nation, so it is well within her ability to take the lead in a relationship.
The second caveat is that even a shy man has pride.
Though he knows his own limitations (as prescribed by his shyness), he also knows what a typical man is "supposed to do." So he recognizes, too, when you are doing it for him.
So it is acceptable for you to initiate with a shy guy. The problem with male shyness is that it wears off in specific situations.
