11 Low-key Ways A Shy Guy Will Show He Likes You

He's shy and you are confused. You don't know if he is being nice or if he likes you. Are you overthinking his actions? Probably so, because he can't seem to verbalize his feelings for you. In this case, he is shy and has not overcome the hurdle of being 100 percent honest you.

There are many commonalities amongst the shy guy community and I found out what those were by interviewing them first hand.

Here are 11 signs a shy guy likes you:

1. Social media

"Social media is the best way, if you get curved it won't be out there." - 21, single

You probably see this guy on campus, or maybe you have a class with him. He wasn't sure how to approach so he safely shoots his shot online.

2. In private

"Peer pressure is real. If she is by herself I'm pulling up, but if she is with her gang it might be a 'W' on my end." - 21, single

Public speaking is already difficult, but flirting with someone around their friends is even harder. Upon looking at you, he has at least six other eyes on him as well, eyes that are judging him and probably making jokes to talk about once he leaves.

3. Up to the universe

"I don't show them [interest], it just has to naturally happen. I believe in destiny." - 22, single

This guy finds comfort in taking it easy and letting the world serve him what is meant to be served. Just chill, if you're meant to be, it'll happen.

4. Nothing at all

"You can't say anything nowadays, you could do the sweetest thing and she won't flinch." - 24, single

Similar to waiting to see what happens, instead of having hope, he makes sure not to make a move because he know you could be a savage.

5. Waiting game

"You don't tell them. You wait for them to like you." - 19, single.

Sorry ladies, look like you are going to have to make the first move. And maybe the next... and the next.

6. Body language

"I smile a lot when I talk so it may seem like I'm flirting. It's not in the content of what I say, but more so my gestures and body language." - 22, single

Does he sit extra close to you? Does he look you deep in your eyes and smile? This could be a sign.

7. Kind gestures

"I like to do little acts of kindness hoping that she will notice." - 20, single

Gifts?! Sounds like a hopeless romantic to me. Take his gifts as a offering for your love.

8. Captial F

F.R.I.E.N.D.Z.O.N.E.

"It's a miracle if I'm not in the friend zone. I usually just let it happen." - 19, single

Some of them are comfortable with it, but they will always remind you that you need better, and guess what? He is better!

9. Conversation

"I always make sure I can talk to her and engage in conversation." - 20, single

Your conversations are probably much different with this guy than any others. It is flows naturally and he actually acknowledges each thing you say.

10. Putting her first

"I try to make an effort to show her that I listen and pay attention to what she talks about." - 19, single

This guy is ready to put you first. Make him yours, make him yours.

11. Showing you care

"You have to try and do things to try and emphasize you care without being too pushy." - 21, single

This one right here is different. It's the little things, he recognizes them without you even knowing. Don't let him be the one that got away.

It's 2019, take the lead and don't be afraid to shoot your shot first because closed mouths don't get fed.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
