If you are two shy people in your first relationship, try to do things that will help you move the relationship along at a level that isn’t so predictable and thereby mundane.
In other words, try not to keep doing the same activities over and over again.
Engage in something new.
It could be getting involved in self-defense class or doing that hike.
You need to do things that will infuse more life and energy into your relationship.
When you are both shy, it may feel easier to just stick with what you know.
You may want to stay within your comfort zone.
You really shouldn’t do this.
The reason why starting to engage in new activities is so helpful when it comes to a shy couple in a first relationship is that it builds your sense of trust and comfort around each other.
Once you do things that are outside of the norm, you become more of a team that is having this shared experience.
As two people continuously go through new and different events together, they will naturally get closer.
This is because they have a shared experience.
These shared experiences help to build trust and a sense of comfort with one another.
This is the kind of trust and comfort you would need to feel when you are both shy.
In being shy, you may not entirely trust in each other at this time.
That is the nature of this kind of relationship.
However, that can be helped tremendously when you can build trust and comfort with each other.
This is why engaging in new activities that challenge you can be so effective.
Another great way that you can help your first relationship as two shy people is to start opening up to each other about what you like and don’t like.
Start having honest conversations with each other.
This is really important.
The more you learn about what each other likes and doesn’t like, the better you will be able to interact.
This prevents you from making early mistakes in the relationship that could turn the other partner off or offend them.
Due to the nature of this relationship, it can end very quickly when one shy partner feels like they have been offended by the other.
However, the other shy partner may not have known that what they did would offend.
This is why it is so important to be honest with each other about what you like and dislike.
This helps you to be prepared and avoid any early misunderstandings that could lead to an unnecessary break up.
As a shy couple, you should also make constant attempts to show each other affection.
It could be in simply complimenting each other from time to time, holding hands or just being supportive when the other has had a bad day.
Try to do this as often as you can.
When you learn to be as affectionate as you can, you will learn to become more and more secure in the relationship.
You will begin to look at each other as true friends that can be relied on.
Being certain that you can rely on someone builds respect and loyalty. This can really help your relationship.
