Haha, I didn't think you were being disrespectful at all. And thanks for your 5 cents. But the thing is, your sample of men don't reflect my sample of men. And they don't represent all the men out there, thats what I'm trying to put across. Your "shy" guy may have approached you, but that's just what you experienced. I've dated shy men, been in two relationships with "shy men" whom I could never tell whether they were interested or not, even after becoming friends, they never approached me. I initiated casual lunches with both and it went from there and turned into relationships. I asked them if they were showing interest at the start, all said yes. One was inconsistent, the other barely looked my way as well. So what I'm saying is, a guy may not be "putting out" enough signs or whatever (how much is enough anyway?), it doesn't mean he isn't interested. And not all men who "like you are gonna do anything to have you". Another gross generalization cause "men" are made up of so many differing personalities! half the time, those come across rather desperate actually, and only seem to like the chase but aren't relationship-material, again, merely from my experience.
but i digress, was actually more into knowing a Virgo's way of expression of interest or whatever. And especially someone who has almost half his/her chart in earth signs.
