So you want to know how to tell if a shy guy likes you.
It’s not easy!
You can’t go by a lot of the normal signs that a guy likes you… because shy guys act differently a lot of the time they like someone.
However, that’s not to say that you can’t figure out if a shy guy likes you or not. In fact, a lot of the signs that a shy guy gives off that he likes you are going to be a lot more obvious than a guy with more confidence.
Not only that, but here’s another factor working in your favor: shy guys aren’t necessarily going to play games or be subtle about liking you. If he doesn’t have the confidence to walk up and ask you out, he’s not going to have the confidence to play hard to get or otherwise try to play games with you.
So don’t despair!
I’m going to give you the biggest signs that a shy guy likes you right now, so that you can know for sure how he feels about you, even if he’s too shy to ask you out.

The Biggest Signs That A Shy Guy Likes You
He Steals Glances At You When You’re Not Looking
Shy guys aren’t necessarily going to have the courage to talk to you a lot.
Or… at all.
Some guys are so shy that even talking to the girl they like is an insurmountable challenge.
But that’s not obstacle in trying to figure out whether he likes you. There are plenty of non-verbal clues to look for that mean he’s harboring a secret flame for you.
For instance, if a shy guy is interested in you, he’s going to look at you. More often than normally.
In fact, if he’s too shy to talk to you, but he really likes you, he’s almost guaranteed to be looking at you a lot – especially when he thinks you’re not looking.
So if you catch him staring at you a lot and you know he’s too shy to approach you – that’s a huge sign that he likes you.
He Talks To You A Lot Online
This goes hand in hand with him being too shy to talk to you in person.
A lot of the time, guys who are shy in the real world are a lot more open and talkative online. There’s something about non face-to-face interaction that’s a lot less nerve-wracking and scary than talking to you in person.
So if a guy acts super shy when he’s around you, but talks to you a lot online, or over Facebook chat or texting, it’s a big sign that he’s interested and just too shy to act on it in person.
He Seems Interested But He Never Makes A Move
This is a sign that you’re going to have to go with your gut on.
If you’re searching on this topic because you’re sure that a guy is interested in you, but he just hasn’t made a move on you so you’re wondering whether he’s shy… well then you’re probably right.
The truth is, if he really is shy he might be head over heels for you but just too scared to make a move.
After all, tons of guys are terrified of rejection. The possibility of getting rejected might be too much for him.
So if your gut instinct is that he’s definitely interested in you, and the only thing holding you back is that he hasn’t made a move – your gut instinct is probably right.
He Seems Super Nervous And Clumsy When You’re Around
Lots of guys get weird around girls that they like. They act differently than they normally do, they talk differently than they normally do, and some guys get so nervous that they get way more clumsy than they normally are.
Usually, it’s guys who are naturally shy that get nervous and clumsy when their crush is around.
Obviously, there’s a caveat here. If he’s always nervous and clumsy, and not just when you’re around – then it’s much less likely that he’s being nervous because he likes you, and much more likely that he’s just nervous and clumsy all the time.
But if he immediately gets more nervous when you walk into a room – whether it’s him starting to stutter, or dropping something that he’s holding, or suddenly having nervous body language, or even tripping over something – that’s a big sign that he likes you but he’s too shy to say anything about it.
His Friends Tease Him When You’re Around
As you get older, this is obviously going to happen less and less. It’s a pretty juvenile thing to do, but let no one say that men don’t act juvenile no matter how old they are.
If he likes you but he’s too shy to say anything about it, his friends might know about it. In fact, they probably will, since they’ll be the only ones he’s confident enough to talk to about it.
So pay attention to how his friends act when you’re around him. Do they make weird jokes about him that you don’t quite understand? Do they smirk at him when he says something to you? Is the vibe that they know something you don’t?
If so – it could be a sign that he’s interested but shy.
He Treats You Differently Than Other Women
This is the big sign. It’s the one that will hold true regardless of how shy he is.
Guys treat the women they’re interested in differently than they treat other women. They can’t help it – when a guy is interested in a woman she’s special to him, so of course he’s going to treat her differently.
This is where lots of women go wrong with guys. They think that a guy who flirts with them must like them – when really he could flirt with everyone he meets and it’s just his personality.
That’s why it’s so important to watch his behavior and figure out whether he’s treating you differently than the other women in his life.
If he treats you the same as he treats all the other women he knows, it’s a huge sign that he doesn’t feel anything special about you.
But if he treats you differently – even if it’s being really shy and reluctant to talk to you when he can talk to other women – that could be a big sign that he likes you.
No matter how shy he is.
