How Do Shy People Flirt!

15. Silent Witness
Shy people will gladly take part in a conversation with their crush, but only as far as listening goes! You might notice that a shy person will never ask questions or delve deeper into your personality or interests - they just simply don't have the courage! Shy people will instead satisfy their curiosity by asking other people about you, or by checking out your social media pages for more information.

14. Cell Phone Flirting
You probably realize by now that shy people aren't too great with the whole "flirting face-to-face thing". Another trick shy people use to flirt with is their cell phone or computer. They will find it extremely easy to be flirtatious over text message or via a chat session, but as soon as you see them in person they act disinterested or pretend they didn't see you just to avoid any awkwardness.

13. Favors Galore
Have you got a shy friend who seems to always go out of their way to help you? Looks like this friend might have a little bit of a crush on you! Shy people will often do favors for the person they like, however they will mask these favors as simply "just trying to help out / be nice". To shy people, this is flirting.

12. The Friends Blanket
Shy people seem so confident and sure of their feelings towards their crush whilst they are with their friends, but then as soon as it's just one-on-one time with their crush, they become all shy again! Shy people will often use their friends as a safety blanket, so if you find they act disinterested or distant while they're alone with you, this just means they find it hard to flirt without the back-up of their friends.

11. The Laughing Addict
We've all come across someone like this - the person who laughs at absolutely everything! Often this laughter is a nervous laugh from a shy person, who feels that if they laugh at everything their crush says or does, then it will come across as flirting. While happy and bubbly people are often found attractive, laughing at a story of someone's pet getting hit by a car or an equally as sad story will not win you any brownie points!

10. The Starer
Shy people sometimes even work up the courage to stare at their crush - gasp! The only problem with staring is that it has a 50/50 chance of being successful. Either the person being stared at will think it is a compliment because they find the person staring at them to be quite attractive, or stranger-danger alarm bells will ring in their head and they will find it creepy!

09. Pearly Whites
Shy people feel as though the safest option for them to show their affection to their crush is simply to smile at them. This is a risk-free move because, lets face it, everyone smiles at everyone these days! Like most flirting options chosen by shy people however, this one is super subtle, and will often go unnoticed.

08. Bursting With Emotion
Shy people often utilise alcohol as a confidence elixir, and it isn't hard to see why! Suddenly they feel more courageous and silly than they ever have, and you know what this means? They're ready to confess their feelings to you! If a usually shy person suddenly starts being very affectionate or flirtatious with you once they're under the influence of alcohol, then you know they've been crushing on you all along...

07. Flirting Through Music
Shy people also use the common trick of telling their crush to listen to a particular song, because "it's really cool, you'll probably like it!" Often unknown to the crush, the song will sum up the shy person's feelings and affections towards them. If the crush becomes a little suspicious about the lyrics or meaning of the song, the shy person can simply shrug it off as having "an awesome guitar riff" or "sick drums"...

06. Stalker Alert!
While some shy people can only work up the courage to send a friend request on Facebook to their crush, others take it a little step further and may come across as being "stalkerish". This often includes multiple 'likes' of photos, statuses, wall posts, etc. The biggest hint that you've got an avid, but shy, fan on your hands? When they like your photos or statuses from years ago...

05. New Friend Request
The invention of Facebook was an answer to the prayers of many shy people for a number of reasons. Firstly, they're able to simply click a button in order to "friend" their crush. Secondly, once the friend request has been accepted, the shy person is then able to begin what is known as "Flirtbooking" - engaging in the odd 'like' or 'poke' here or there. Sadly, the flirtation does not extend into the real world for those who are extra shy...

04. Permanent Friend Zone
Ouch, this one is bound to hurt! Often a shy person will achieve the status of finally "being friends" with their crush, however this is where their ambitions end. The shy person will lack the courage to pursue anything more than friends, so "in the friend zone" they will forever stay.

03. Watch Out, Sarcasm Abounds!
Like flirting, but with the added sting of sarcasm, the shy person often hides behind being cynical or slightly negative when talking to their crush. They try to act cool, intelligent, and even a little bit like a jerk because they lack the courage to just come out and say it: "I like you. A lot". Awkward!

02. Hide N' Go Seek
Another classic flirting technique of a shy person is known as the childish 'hide and go seek'. This technique is often used as a last resort, when the shy person has given up all hopes of even approaching their crush. You will commonly notice them hiding behind their textbook, or any other object large enough to cover their face.

01. What Eye Contact?
That's right - shy people hate eye contact, so you can imagine their dilemma when eye contact is the key ingredient to flirting successfully! Shy people will often do the classic 'quickly look, quickly look away' trick. There are numerous disadvantages to this; firstly, the person they're trying to flirt with won't even pick up on the subtle sign. Secondly, the shy person may look a little strange or suspicious with their eyes continuously darting all over the place!
