“Shy girls are often great listeners and are good at empathizing, so it's easier to keep a conversation going.” People often see the weaknesses of women with quiet demeanors, but we encourage you to really play up your strengths, like your listening skills. Besides, if you both loved to talk, you would constantly be in competition to get a word in the conversation. Nothing is more nerve-wracking for shy women than a quiet dinner for two as a first date.

Knowing complicated and sometimes not-so-pretty parts of your SO is integral in a relationship, sooner or later.
