21 Dating Worries That Keep Shy People Up At Night
Your first thought when you have a crush is usually "OH GOD, NO."
You do NOT stalk online; you're MERELY figuring out your crush's interests without having to actually talk.
You have seriously considered trying to telepathically tell your crush you like them.
You've actually spent way too much time rehearsing the right thing to say.
You're afraid your crush will think you're boring because you're so quiet in person.
...Or just super flustered and awkward.
Plus, you're much better at talking to your crush online than in person.
So it takes you a liiiittle bit long to actually let your crush know you're interested.
You worry that, once they get to know you, they'll be weirded out by the difference.
And you're terrified of seeming too quiet meeting their friends, because you feel you HAVE to impress them!
And meeting their family? OH GOD, THE PRESSURE.
And if you see 'em out with a group of people, forget it. You'll be standing outside the circle, not talking.
And when they compliment you, you don't know how to deal.
Whenever your pookie schnookums wants to take a picture together, you want to flee.
And forget about trying to set a thirst trap with a selfie.
If you blush, you become nervous that your date KNOWS when you're feeling shy.

And people actually think "don't be shy" is actually good dating advice.
Even if it takes you a little longer than most...
