If the idea of meeting somebody after chatting with them online makes you nervous, you aren’t alone.
The person you are meeting is probably just as anxious as you are. Even when they go badly, these meet ups are almost never as bad as you imagined.
Instead I had to rely on my observations and research on what shy women go through.
Like with men, there's variation in how shy women can be towards the opposite sex and dating.
To a certain degree, we all possess a fear of intimacy.
Ironically, this fear often arises when we are getting exactly what we want, when we’re experiencing love as we never have or being treated in ways that are unfamiliar.
On many levels, both conscious and unconscious, we become scared of being hurt.This article will talk about that, with more focus put on the issues that are unique to shy women.This piece was a little different to write for me, since being a guy, I didn't have the benefit of being able to draw on my firsthand experiences to inform my points (though you'll still see me interjecting a male perspective in parts).There are lots of women who have good romantic lives, but who still consider themselves shy around guys at heart, and wish they weren't so inhibited at times.There are women who were pretty shy in high school and during the first year or two of college, and it delayed the start of their dating lives somewhat, but they got worked through the worst of it by their early twenties.
