Shy on Dates

Sunday Confessional: I'm Really Shy on Dates

This week's confession comes from our anonymous Confession Booth group in the TrèsSugar Community. Weigh in with your advice below.


I get so nervous around this guy I like. We've been on two dates, and I feel like I just can't be myself. I hope my shyness didn't ruin my chances for a third date.

There's lots of cool stuff going on in our community — join it, check it out, share your posts or advice in the great groups, and maybe we'll feature it here on TrèsSugar!

I think if he likes you and you like him, then everything will work its way out. That's how it happens, right?

You Can Do It!!!! Just prepare yourself for the next time you hang out with him...get all prettied up (everyone has more confidence when they are all prettied up)....do some investigating, find out what you two have in common. Hope it all works out for Ya!

There is a difference between being shy and being socially awkward. I think as long as you can find things to talk about, you'll be fine. Just ask him questions that require more than a one or two word answer. As he opens up and talks more, so will you.

I am the exact same way! It's not just dates, but I'm shy/quiet around anyone that I don't know well. I feel like it's harder for people to get to know me because of it. However, there are people who find this kind of behavior "mysterious", and they are intrigued by trying to break through the barrier to get to know the real you.
