Question - (22 March 2010) 8 Answers - (Newest, 23 March 2010)
A male United States age 22-25, anonymous writes:

I talked to a girl that ive found cute after class that has the same major as me in collage that seems really timid. She doesn't talk ever even when the rest of the class has conversations and just sits and stairs at her computer working or surfing the web. I decided hey why not and she just happend to leave after i did and i caught her on the stairs. I said hi and began talking to her about my break and asked her some questions and had a good conversation.

The only thing i don't get is even tho she seemed really interested in what we were talking about and was talking for a change she seemed to hide her face from me looking straight forward or slightly away from me but kept talking and seemed interested. She looked me in the face and in my eyes for a split second and went back to this and didn't do it again. Ive never seen a girl do this ever. It was like she thought their was something on her face and was hiding it, not just avoiding eye contact which she did for a split second anyways.

Why is she doing this aunts?

That might be a good idea, texting or chatting online is much easier for me.

Entirely Unique agony auntIt might take a little while for her to feel comfortable to look at you and look you in the eye when talking to you but if you like her I'm sure its worth getting her number and getting to know her and allowing her time to come out of her shell and feel comfortable around you.

This is verified as being by the original poster of the question

Should i ask for her number next class so i can get to know her better without making her have to be to stressed out? You would think that would make face to face contact easier for her to deal with?

I have that problem, its really hard for me to look people in the eye, I have no idea why I do it. She sounds similar to me, keeps to herself and only speaks when spoken too, though I do chat with people in my classes. She could feel imitated by you, and just could be very shy. I am surprised the teacher does not call on her, I know my instructor will just pick anyone. I would just be friendly and ask her how she thinks the class is going, and if she enjoys the subject.

mervy agony auntI used to be like that too, but only with the guys I liked. So she might even like you! I would always be nervous about what they would see. This girl sounds overall shy (just like everybody else has said), but she might be especially shy around you if she fancies you.

ElectricSheep agony auntI bet she's a very self-conscious girl, which is usually how shy people are. When I was younger, I was a shy individual and didn't feel comfortable looking into people's eyes, or being looked at straight to my face. I was afraid they would notice a flaw on my face, or see my timidness. But that faded away over time as I got more confident. Now I prefer to look into people's eyes if I talk to them.

I commend you for talking to her. I believe if more people did that, shy people would start feeling more confident.

I would say next time you're talking to her don't look straight at her face until she starts getting more comfortable with you.

You said it yourself. She's probably shy and nervous about all of this. She certainly sounds shy. Have patience with her and continue to get to know her. She'll open up a bit more when she feels a bit better about knowing you.

Entirely Unique agony auntIt could be shyness or lack of confidence, sometimes when someone is shy or not very confident they find they feel alot more shy when looking someone in the eye.

Other than that people that lie sometimes do it but I would think its the first one personally.
