He is too shy to approach me yet
Introducing Dr Love, who solves your relationship riddles in a confusing digital age
I have a large group of friends, one of whom is a guy who supposedly likes me a lot. I don't know him very well, because I rarely get a chance to chat with him when we are out in a group, but we have been friends for a long time because we went to the same school and live in the same neighbourhood. I would like to get to know him better because he seems like a decent person, but I find his shyness a little annoying. If he really does have a crush on me, I don't know why he doesn't act on it and just say something. After a point, I am afraid I will simply lose interest waiting for him to work up the courage to speak. What should I do?
It's perfectly okay for someone to be shy, just as it is okay for someone to say exactly what they feel. If you would like to get to know him a little better, what stops you from chatting with him or asking if he would like to go out for a cup of coffee? Maybe he needs time because he isn't sure about how to approach you. Maybe he finds you intimidating. Maybe you think he has a crush on you and he doesn't. Either way, the only thing you can do is take the initiative and find out more before jumping to conclusions.
