Things dating people do
While you can’t change your personality on an ongoing basis, you can certainly push your shy personality to the limit for 60 minutes and initiate lots of good conversation topics. Overt flirting can actually be a turnoff for some, but a little playful flirting can go a long way.
Shy people often get too stuck in their heads to relax and let their flirting come out.
Instead of waiting to hear what your date suggests, have a couple ideas in mind before you actually start planning with him or her.
With dating, shy men and women come to the table with a minor disadvantage because dating is a social activity, and shy people have a hard time putting their best foot forward with people brand new to them.
Assume that every single invite suddenly comes with a plus one because they've been together for two weeks and are inseparable.
I don't remember inviting David to this party but hey cool what's up man.
They wait for the other person to initiate conversation topics.
Shy men and women almost always have a lot to say – if only you ask them.
