    Depends to what extent it affected the way she acted. If she just sat around feeling sorry for herself all day then no thanks. If she was just a bit quiet or shy then yes I could easily, especially if I thought she was pretty.

    I am pretty ( I don't mean to sound big-headed at all), but I am extremley shy with people who aren't my close friends/family. I've heard a lot of people talk about how I'm the prettiest at work and uni, and many have told me I am. The problem is that guys never seem to want to get to know me, and seem to always go for confident girls. I was wondering if any of you would ever fancy a girl you found really pretty, but had no confidence? Would you always choose a less pretty, more confident girl over her? Is confidence really the most attractive thing?
    For a while back I seemed to attract completic neurotics, so I think I'd prefer a confident girlfriend now.

    If you are genuinely pretty, and I see that you are nice then there would be nothing stopping me from making conversation.

    Without wanting to sound bad, i would love to get with a girl with little confidence. She then relies on me to help build her up, which i would do with consumate skill. In exchange for some tlc.
    No no no, you further decrease her confidence so she becomes confused and lost THEN you get your tlc.. whatever tlc means..

    No. Introversion is an acceptable personal quality, shyness is a social problem. If you don't have the backbone to talk to new people then I wouldn't think very much of you. I'm sorry.

    But don't you think shy/unconfident girls come across as more boring than everyone else (even if they are not) because they say a lot less, and don't give as many opinions?
    I don't think shy girls come across as boring (although I may have a biased opinion :p: ). I think they can come across as mysterious and intriguing on the plus side...and cold/complacent on the negative side!

    From a female perspective I'm attracted to both confident and shy men and it's the mystery of getting to know a shy guy that attracts me...sometimes it's a disappointment! other times you're really glad you took the time to get to know that person So it depends on the individual I suppose.

    If you're pretty, nothing else matters. That is the number one thing that guys look for in a girl. Plus shyness can be quite cute.

    That would be the ideal scenario, if the girl was pretty and confident.
    But as they say, beggars can't be choosers and neither can virgins. Especially if the girl on offer is pretty.

    I currently fancy a really pretty but shy girl. She's never even kissed a boy, and i lost my virginity at 15, and have had several partners since. So i wouldn't worry, shyness can be rather attractive, and you build confidence with the right person .

    I don't think people think I'm stuck up. In fact, people see me as 'too nice', which probably is less attractive than being stuck up in most peoples eyes.
    A bunch of girls persuaded a guy not to ask me out because I wasn't his type (i.e. not a girl who poses in her underwear for facebook pictures) and because I was "too nice".

    What a jokeeeeeeee. He was so hot :daydreaming:

    I get loads of compliments on my looks but I'm far too shy for any guy to actually want to start a relationship or anything like that...They compliment me, flirt and that's it....then again, I don't flirt back :eyeball: :sad:

    100% yes. Although on the other hand, i don't approach random women who don't give me a smile / make eye contact etc. Since i'm guessing you don't do this infact, 99.9% of women don't do this (not to me anyway) i'll most prob be single forever !!.

    So do you think an average looking confident girl is more attractive than a shy pretty girl?

    Depends on whether they're shy because they have nothing to say or shy because they're too afraid to say it to new people.

    I really need to be able to talk to a girl about anything without feeling awkward to actually like them (other than superficially).

    Confidence is amazingly important. HOWEVER, i personally am seriously attracted to shyness, i think it's sweet. It just depends on the person i guess...
    Seconded

    Nope. I really don't get why shyness is seen as a negative trait. I think shyness is quite cute. It makes the girl seem more faithful as opposed to a confident one who goes around talking to lots of guys.
    And of course you can never understate the importance of good looks.

    If a girl is shy, guys won't give a **** if your attractive, and even see it as cute.

    Now, if a guy is shy, he is treated like an alien from another planet, and it is seen as some kind of disorder.
    well Im a girl, very shy, not a good looker and get treated like an alien so guess Im similar to how a guy would get treated.
