Sex & the Single Woman: Getting Through to Shy Guys

I am generally a pretty outgoing person, or at least not afraid to embark in a conversation with someone. I do, however, find it a huge struggle when guys are unmovingly shy. I have no problem with guys who are more reserved, but I don’t know how to approach them.

I can talk to a guy until the cows come home, but unless he is willing to step out of his shell a little, I feel like there is not much I can do.

My current problem is trying to figure out whether or not a guy is shy. I know that seems like kind of a weird situation, but it’s true. I know that in general he is kind of quiet, but at the same time I don’t know if I should be pushing him to do anything.

What do you do when dealing with shy guys?
