Be ready to be the leader until your boyfriend feels more confident about your relationship.
A life story of one of the members of Meeting Land that teaches us to become less shy and more self-confident in love matters: "Once there was a guy who saw a lady he was interested in, but he was too shy to tell her about his feelings, that he liked her.
He managed to be close to her and they became good friends. One day they were walking along the street, and another guy saw the girl, and he called her to talk to her, and he said he loved her.
At the beginning of relationship, especially on the first date, shy guys are usually nervous about talking to women they're interested in.
Don't worry, simply be yourself, smile, it's important for them to feel your sincerity.
Keep answering his questions as long as he shows interest. A shy guy will not ask you if you love him, because he is uncertain about your intentions and he is afraid of being rejected.
Ask questions, but don't overload him with tons of questions. When talking to him, try to avoid using sharp words, they can hurt his feelings. He likes to be with you, spend time with you, but he will not call you (may be, 1-2 calls maximum).
He'll wait for you to call and ask him to hang out or he'll put it off so long that by the time they do you love another man.
There are so many shy guys who have had a crush on someone for many years, and have never talked to her.
If you are really hung up on this guy, don't hesitate, go ahead - talk to him yourself.
Call him, talk for a while and ask him out for coffee.
A bit later, when he came home, he realized that he risked to loose his girlfriend by being so shy, so he wrote her a letter that he loves her and he just did not know how to tell her.
She read his declaration of love and agreed to his proposal, and ignored the other guy.
And that is how friendly relationship led to marriage and gave birth to four children." To be continued...
