17 Reasons Why Dating a Shy Girl is the Best

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Montclair chapter.

When it comes to dating, being shy can make it harder than it has to be. Sometimes our shyness can be read the wrong way, leading our crushes to feel like they may be wasting their time due to the fact it takes us a little bit longer to express our feelings than most. But, as soon as a shy girl gets comfortable around you, they make the best girlfriends. And the minute she opens up, you won’t want to let her go. So what exactly makes them so awesome? Find out below!

We cherish your compliments 
You can easily make us blush
We’ll notice the smallest details about you
We like showing affection
Making a scene is not our thing
We most likely won’t make the first move, but that’s alright
We like our space just as much as you do…
But we also love spending time with you
We are great listeners
We have a great sense of humor
We avoid eye contact and speak softly, but we still like you
We would rather stay in than go out and party (but we still like to party occasionally)
We are very independent
We care so much for the people we love
We like trying new things once you get to know us
We won’t rush into things
Once we get to know you, it’s impossible to shut us up!
