*takes a deep breath*

To re-iterate, we are talking about shy guys here, NOT cowards.

And the title clearly defines the situation as that in which the shy guy 'goes after' the loud, dominant woman.

What more do I have to do to clarify this? The men seem to get it.

Bleh, sometimes I fear for my own sex.

Thank you.

I thought the guys were saying the same thing

I don't equate shy with cowardly, but shy people don't tend to put themselves out there in social situations. It's easier to let dominant people into your life, b/c you don't have to do as much, figure out as much. You can remain comfortable. jmo I'm sure you'lll like rip me limb from limb though.

That's actually what would turn me off about the loud, dominant woman (being not very loud or dominant myself). I've got nothing against 'em, but a girl like that would be surrounded by so many friends that I'd have better odds of hitting the jackpot than getting to know her as anything but loose acquaintances. Forgive me if I've generalized.

I didn't notice. I think I'd just picked up that guys seem to like/go for the confident, possibly rather loud girls anyway. I'm assuming that's a generalization though.

Perhaps if such girls show interest their way, it helps give the shy guys that extra boost and confidence? Perhaps these girls are more likely to be doing the chasing and pursuing which means the guys don't have to go to the effort and step out of their comfort zones. If shy guys in general seem to go for those girls anyway though, I have no idea. Don't trust my theories. I really don't know. *shrugs*

I didn't think really shy guys actually went after women at all. They're shy, right? They stay by themselves. If they actively pursue someone, they're not that shy, I think...

No. It's as simple as that.

No, all it means is you'll have tougher times getting dates.

We all want someone who will make us better. Shy people usually hate the fact that they are shy. Someone who is loud and outgoing is intriguing to them so they are naturally drawn to that person. Rather than just looking at it as "opposites attract" think of it as someone who is good at something that is unknown to you might seem really attractive. Personally, I think boys who can draw are amazing. I also look for things in common, but there are certain things that I find amazing because I can't change.

A lot of shy people find their lack of communication out of their control, therefore it is intriguing when someone can display a power that they are lacking.
