A girl friend of mine was talking to a guy friend of hers about 'how do guys act when they like you?' and he said.... "well since I'm completely shy, when I like a girl if I get the impression that she likes me back, I'll start to avoid her". Has anyone ever heard of that before??? Do guys really do that??? Or is this guy just weird, lol. It sounds strange to me because I would expect that if he sensed that she liked him back, he would be happy and would further pursue it with more intent. Guys make no sense to me at all, lol.

This has happened to me- or at least I think it has. I was in about second grade. Hasn't happened since to my knowledge.

Honestly, when I first get interested in a guy, I usually will back off a bit to gain some knowledge and decide on a game plan, but I certainly won't hide from him. Then, like a wild cat, I pounce and he knows how I feel..hehe. ;-) Any guy who avoids you lacks either true interest or confidence. Either way, it's not a good situation!

Is there a guy you have in mind?

lol

There is sort of a guy that I have in mind, but it is a LONG story. If you want the story, let me know, and I will post it.

Just give us the gist of it.

He's not weird - he has prioritized his fear of rejection over his desire for a relationship. When those priorities change he will suck it up and pursue. Nothing to do with being shy - that is just an "acceptable" excuse IMHO.
