11 Low-key Ways A Shy Guy Will Show He Likes You

A shy guy is crushing on you and you don't even know it.

He's shy and you are confused. You don't know if he is being nice or if he likes you. Are you overthinking his actions? Probably so, because he can't seem to verbalize his feelings for you. In this case, he is shy and has not overcome the hurdle of being 100 percent honest you.

There are many commonalities amongst the shy guy community and I found out what those were by interviewing them first hand.

Here are 11 signs a shy guy likes you:

1. Social media

"Social media is the best way, if you get curved it won't be out there." - 21, single

You probably see this guy on campus, or maybe you have a class with him. He wasn't sure how to approach so he safely shoots his shot online.

2. In private

"Peer pressure is real. If she is by herself I'm pulling up, but if she is with her gang it might be a 'W' on my end." - 21, single

Public speaking is already difficult, but flirting with someone around their friends is even harder. Upon looking at you, he has at least six other eyes on him as well, eyes that are judging him and probably making jokes to talk about once he leaves.

3. Up to the universe

"I don't show them [interest], it just has to naturally happen. I believe in destiny." - 22, single

This guy finds comfort in taking it easy and letting the world serve him what is meant to be served. Just chill, if you're meant to be, it'll happen.

4. Nothing at all

"You can't say anything nowadays, you could do the sweetest thing and she won't flinch." - 24, single

Similar to waiting to see what happens, instead of having hope, he makes sure not to make a move because he know you could be a savage.

5. Waiting game

"You don't tell them. You wait for them to like you." - 19, single.

Sorry ladies, look like you are going to have to make the first move. And maybe the next... and the next.

6. Body language

"I smile a lot when I talk so it may seem like I'm flirting. It's not in the content of what I say, but more so my gestures and body language." - 22, single

Does he sit extra close to you? Does he look you deep in your eyes and smile? This could be a sign.

7. Kind gestures

"I like to do little acts of kindness hoping that she will notice." - 20, single

Gifts?! Sounds like a hopeless romantic to me. Take his gifts as a offering for your love.

8. Captial F

F.R.I.E.N.D.Z.O.N.E.

"It's a miracle if I'm not in the friend zone. I usually just let it happen." - 19, single

Some of them are comfortable with it, but they will always remind you that you need better, and guess what? He is better!

9. Conversation

"I always make sure I can talk to her and engage in conversation." - 20, single

Your conversations are probably much different with this guy than any others. It is flows naturally and he actually acknowledges each thing you say.

10. Putting her first

"I try to make an effort to show her that I listen and pay attention to what she talks about." - 19, single

This guy is ready to put you first. Make him yours, make him yours.

11. Showing you care

"You have to try and do things to try and emphasize you care without being too pushy." - 21, single

This one right here is different. It's the little things, he recognizes them without you even knowing. Don't let him be the one that got away.

It's 2019, take the lead and don't be afraid to shoot your shot first because closed mouths don't get fed.

An Open Letter To The Girl In A Toxic Relationship Who Doesn't See The Signs To Let Go

"it took letting go to realize that I was holding onto nothing" -R.H Sin

Dear you,

I hope you're doing well. I once thought I was too. I once thought that if he would just change, for me, everything would work. However, my sweet girl, you should not have to change people, you should not have to push people to be better, for you. You cannot help anyone, that does not want to help themselves.

In the movies, we learn to love a bad boy that needs changing. However, it isn't always your job to be boys saving grace. However, his shaming and emotional abuse is not just something you should put up with so that you can love him. That is not loving.

Love is not a constant competition of who could belittle the other one first. Love is not asking for a hug and being told no. Love does not make you feel stupid for bringing up things that hurt your feelings.

Love does not grow angry because you talk to your mom about your feelings. Love does not body shame. Love does not constantly change the passcode to their phone.

Love does not laugh when you find out they're unfaithful. Love does not tell you that you are not smart enough to accomplish anything. Love does not force their hand up your thigh when the words "no" slip out of your mouth.

Love is the warmth of a hand on your cheek when you get anxious. Love is getting your backpack out the car for you. Love is turning around when you need them. Love compromises.

Love is encouraging. Love is proud. Love is forgiving. Love sees you for who you are. Love knows you are worthy.

God is your Father and you are His daughter, so do not believe for one second that this abuse is the love you think you deserve.

Love will not always be easy. Love will be challenging and a constant prayer to not anger so quickly.

However, do not mix up challenging with the abuse. If you are losing the good pieces of yourself, then it isn't love. I know that you put a lot of time and effort into this relationship, but it is no good, you are holding on to someone whose heart is not in the right place to love you.

I connected with a poem from R. H. Sin, once I left my toxic relationship which reads, "it took letting go to realize that I was holding onto nothing."

Darling girl, you are so loved by so many people, do not let this relationship hold you back or make you feel less worthy than you are. I have always been the girl with her nose stuck up in the air smelling for smoke, to follow the trail to a burning house to find a boy that needed saving, but it is more than likely a boy that lit the fire in the first place and needs changing.

So, do not be me, be better. Be the girl that lights her own world on fire, for her work, for her family, for God. You are you and you are amazing, so do not fear being without him.

You will feel as if you have come up for air after drowning in an ocean that you had no idea you were swimming in.

The emotional abuse that this boy has put you through and maybe even physical abuse will leave you building walls around your heart. It will make other relationships hard, but you are so so strong.

You will meet someone that makes you so happy and feel so easy to love, you will never understand how you stuck around with the one that hurt you for so long.

You deserve to grow from this, and I promise you will.

Let go.

xoxo,

The girl who learned from a toxic relationship

Being Far Away From My Boyfriend Actually Strengthened Our Relationship Instead Of Forcing It Apart

While we were apart, we became closer.

Before I really start this article, I just want to say that my relationship isn't truly a long distance relationship. We are both college students at the same university eight months out of the year, but the other four months we live quite a distance apart. Even during those four months, we are only about 150 miles from each other as the bird flies, but really about three hours from each other.

Being in a relationship where I'm not able to see my boyfriend every day or even every week has been a real challenge. But it's been a good challenge. It hasn't been a challenge because I've felt unfaithful or fallen out of love with him in any way. It's challenging because I miss him. We both work jobs and our schedules aren't the same and oftentimes we aren't able to talk to each other unless it's early in the morning or late at night. There are times when all I want to do is talk to him and tell him about how my day went and get a big bear hug from him. Unfortunately, I'm not really able to do this.

I firmly believe that being apart from each other for days, weeks, or even months have brought us closer than we could've ever imagined. We knew that this would be difficult, and we knew that there would be bad days, but we decided to power through it. It has made each time that we are able to see each other so much more special and meaningful.

Seeing each other has become more of spending time with each other than just laying around on the couch playing around on our phones. It's become really getting to know each other better and catching up on all the things we had missed. It's become a time for us to simply be in each other's presence and enjoy being able to talk face to face without a phone in the middle of us. We go on more adventurous dates, we take more pictures, and I think we would both easily say that we fall more and more in love with each other after each opportunity we have to spend time together.

Spending time together is no longer a daily activity, but it has become a right to be earned through hard work and several paychecks as travel can become expensive. We no longer take opportunities to see each other for granted, and it has made us grow closer because we aren't able to spend time together often. We look forward to the days when we won't have to worry about being apart but know that this is only a stepping stone in our relationship.
