Knowing when a guy likes you is always a challenging task. Even if he's the outgoing type, it could be difficult to tell whether his interactions with you are motivated by a desire for friendship or something more. To make matters more confusing, many sweet guys are also super shy, especially around ladies they consider crush-worthy. So, what's a girl to do? How can you know when a shy guy is into you?
A more reserved man will show his feelings for you in subtle ways. You'll know he's crushing on you when he goes out of his way to spend time with you, or if he somehow, inexplicably, just always seems to be around. Does he make an effort to talk to you? Then it's possible he likes you, as shy guys often don't talk to many girls. Conversely, if he avoids you like the plague, it's also possible he likes you, since, for many shy people, being around a crush can cause even stronger shyness.
Ultimately, the only way to know with 100% certainty whether any guy likes you is for him to tell you or for you to ask him. Even when information is passed on through friends or acquaintances, there's always a chance that they could be inaccurate rumors. Watch your shy guy closely for signs, but remember, all relationships involve some degree of risk. Eventually someone will have to take the leap to find out!
