    Quick question for all of the shy guys on Real Jock, there is a co-worker of mine who acts extremely strange, and I'm starting to wonder is he shy or a little psychotic...

    1) He stares at me constantly, and whenever we are in the office everything he does his body must be positioned towards me, he makes copies with his body facing me not the copy machine icon_eek.gif

    2) whenever we run in to each other in the office he smiles and puts his head down

    3) After a conversation with him, he shakes my hand so fast and hard i think he's gonna yank it off

    4) I once called him to cover my shift and the call lasted 0.3 seconds, he rushed off the phone so fast

    If any of this sounds familiar to you shy guys I would appreciate your insight.

    We all show different and sometimes peculiar attributes when we're shy or nervous. Personally, when I'm nervous I can't smile much and my voice will become raspy and lower; I wouldn't show any of those characteristics mentioned.

    However, I do believe that the characteristics you mentioned are common with the more obviously shy types. He could be into you or he may be intimidated by you. The former sounds more convincing though as he chooses to face you when photocopying!

    I know he compliments my appearance a lot, and once he called me and I didn't get a chance to return his call, so when I saw him the next day at work and apologized for not returning his call, he got all anxious and kept saying how he wasn't calling for himself, but for another co-worker who had a question they wanted to ask me.

    Telltale shy guy sign. He's shy and is interested in you from what you described.

    Be careful though workplace relationships can prove hazardous for your career.

    Shy yes. Interested in you? maybe, possibly perhaps not sexually though.

    I once had a guy who couldn't say more then boo to me and he'd get this funny wonky smile on his face and start to blush when I tried talking to him, he was shy.. painfully so.

    he wanted to talk to me but didn't know how. He was completely straight, but very shy. Very sweet guy too!

    I would say he likes you: the staring, the body positioning, the nervous gestures (ie shaking your hand), etc. Whether its friendship or something more though is hard to gage.

    Yeah, he is pretty much shy, one hundred percent.

    I act the exact same way when I see or meet a guy I find attractive. icon_razz.gif

    Yea, he's shy, it sometimes happens to me... -- possibly cause im in the closet -- but when I see a cute/hot guy, like i see him.. but when making eye contact i just turn around and basically ignore him cause i dont want him to know i liked him haha its pretty weird tho.. but yea as you described, I can say he likes you =)

    Yep, definitely shy. If you're interested in getting to know him, you're gonna have to come up with reasons to chat with him, even briefly. But don't go too out of your way to do so. Simple things like "What do you think of the weather?", "Have you been watching the news?" or "How's your day?". The more you talk to him, the more chances he'll get to get over his shyness. Don't forget to make sure to call him by his name instead of a simple "Hey".

    Thanks fellas for the feedback. Yes he's a cute guy, I find him attractive, but I was having a real hard time reading him. I've been trying to make him feel a little bit more comfortable around me, but I think it's going to take some time.

    4) I once called him to cover my shift and the call lasted 0.3 seconds, he rushed off the phone so fast


    This is definitely what had be doubting he liked me. I assumed he would have been happy to hear from me and have me on the phone, but i've never heard the dial tone so fast in my life icon_eek.gif
