You may feel like you're the only one, but the truth is that lots of people struggle with shyness and social insecurity.
Here are 12 things all shy girls do when they’re in a new relationship: 1. To start, a guy who talks only about himself and his own interests is an immediate turn-off. Remember, kissing sends a message to your date who may interpret that kiss in a way you did not intend. But what do girls NOT want you to do during conversation?A new relationship is a super exciting time when you’re getting to know someone and really enjoying that nice honeymoon stage that is hard to find in a more long-term dating situation. Because if you’re a shy girl, like me, a new relationship is an exciting but nerve-wracking time when you’re trying to be really close with someone you still feel very awkward around. When your boyfriend/girlfriend isn’t around, you do whatever you can to avoid being near their parents. You very rarely speak up about how you feel or what you want. You take things pretty slow when it comes to hooking up. I’ve written about my shy girl struggles before, and surprise surprise, they don’t just disappear when you start dating someone. And you get even more uncomfortable when you have to meet and be around their family. It’s not that you don’t like them, it’s just that they make you want to crawl out of your shaking skin and hide. You start using your partner as a crutch whenever you’re in social situations.
More common is the feeling of many LDS teens that the only people they can ask on dates are the few other LDS teens in their area, because the non-LDS teens might misunderstand your intentions (see obstacles #2 and #3 on the next page) and it would take a lot of awkward explanation and coaching to get them to understand and accept the way LDS teens are counseled to date.
