Post Shyness is killing my relationship, and more...

I'm 18 and I have a girlfriend that i really do love. On a mental and emotional level we click perfectly. I have one problem though. I am painfully shy. My shyness has effected me in many ways to this point in my life, but one way in particlar is with girls. My sexual experience with girls is non existant, and it is really starting to hurt my relationship. I love this girl so much, but I still have not really been able to overcome my shyness to make a move. We talk about it and I keep saying that I can get over it, but I have not yet. If I can;t get over this shyness it could cost me a girl I love with all my heart. It may sound like I;m a huge *****, but whatever, I don't care, I'm desperate, I don't know what to do. I just hate myself right now because I'm so stupid. If anybody can give me any advice or share any helpful experiences I'd be so appreciative.

just make a move. It You will probably feel uncomfortable about it at first but it will get easier. I know it's easier said than done but the only other thing that I think might help would be alcohol lol

lol, i like the alchohol thing, but thats not the way to go. dont just go for it, talk to her about it first. my last boyfriend had the same problem. he was so cute but soooooooooo shy, and he never knew wht to do whn we were together beacuse he took his inexperence way to seriously. i thought it was so sexy and so sweet when he just came right out and talked to me about it. he started about how much he loved me, and and stuff like that (make her feel good, tell her shes beautiful) and than he told me that hes not sure wht to do because he dosnt want to push me to fast. i think u sould say that to her, than that puts the ball in her court, its then up to her to tell u what is ok for u to do. than hun, ur just gonna have to push through it and make some moves. its hard at first, but....U CANT DO ANYTHING WRONG, and trust me, ull have lots of fun in no time!!!!!!!!!!

OK, just wanted to say thanks. I appreciate the support and I guess it just comes down to me pushing past my shyness. Thanks again.

Alright, you're going to overcome this, so just relax, nothing wrong with taking it slow. First before pulling any moves be comfortable with her. Trust her. Care for her. Love her. Once you can say that you are/do all of the above, or even 3 of the 4 then it's time for fun. Start by hugging or cuddling, something light and nice and sweet, watch a movie, do something with her that you enjoy and will loosen you up. Realize why you care about her, why you find her so attractive, why right now, right then, you want to be as close to her as you can be. Now take her chin into your hand, tilt her head softly upward, and kiss her. Keep your lips tight for this, no sloppy kiss just a sweet sentimental one. Now take her somewhere private, that feels safe, like your room. Now make sure NO ONE WILL INTERFERE. Kiss her a little bit, cuddle with her, then say her name, when she says "what?" ask her "Will you go down on me?" this really is the politest best way i've found of phrasing it the first time. Ok now things are gonna get awkward if this is your first time, but just relax. Trust her. Trust yourself. Make sure she is comfortable (relatively) and you are comfortable. Make sure you keep contact with her, either hold a hand of hers, keep some OTHER part of your body close to her. Since it is your first time you may not come. Or you may very quickly, you get to find out. If you don't after 10 minutes, pull her up and kiss her. On the lips. No it isn't gross, she is the one you love. Make sure she knows that NOTHING she would do would make her "dirty" in your eyes.

You seem like a really nice person. I think things will be fine for you. Remember when two people are in love, nothing they do with one another is ever wrong, or dirty, or anything other than the closest you'll ever get to heaven.

Everyone starts somewhere, and you have the incredible luck to have your first experiences with her. I would kill to have my first experiences be with someone I loved. I would do anything for that. But I can't. You however can. Just remember this. Love. Commitment. Trust. Happiness. These are things you want from a relationship.

After you are done be sure to cuddle for around twenty minutes, maybe longer. Then you should spend as much of the rest of the day with her as you can.

Know this: It might not go perfectly, it might not be like you thought it would be. But it would be with her, the most important person on earth to you, so it will be wonderful because she is wonderful.

Best Wishes Bro.
