Being able to passionately talk without being cut off is borderline orgasmic.2.
The dreaded ~silent moments~ are actually fucking wonderful. LOL, this one will drive you nuts because you know when *you* get quiet, it’s 100 percent intentional passive aggressiveness designed to make the other person slowly crumble. He truly, genuinely is just floating in his own world for a hot second.4. The chatterbox floodgates really open when he has access to emojis and time to think before he speaks. You have to really ask him about himself, otherwise you might miss some big stuff.
If not, he will probably dial it back on his part because he doesn’t think you’re all that into him…
that doesn’t mean he’ll lose interest in you, but if he already had some insecurities about whether or not you are into him, this will stir up his insecurities further and he’ll keep doing and trying things to “make you like him” so he can feel secure. So, for starters, I would say that the more insecure he is about you liking him, the more of this stuff he’s going to say until he’s convinced that you really like him a lot.
Specifically, he’s checking to see if you’ll say that you feel the same way.

You can both cuddle without the crushing pressure of filling every minuscule gap in a conversation. The bigger the accomplishment, the more your convo feels like 20 questions. And you’re constantly learning crazy huge chunks of information about him. He’ll also ask you things no one else ever thought to. Because he’s not the type to interject a lot (or, at all), bigger group settings make him seem like all he’s secretly roasting everyone in his head between every silent, polite nod. Because he’s so shy, the people who end up being his closest friends are usually the kinder, more patient people who won’t immediately write off that person standing awkwardly by themselves at a party.
All of that on TOP of telling you he loves you, in that charmingly timid way of his.15. You know him getting stuttery around you or getting so nervous that he actually falls UP a staircase (like my boyfriend did on our first date, true story) just means he is full of the warmest feelings for you. You’re with him because, deep down, you’re probably a little shy too.
Yeah, you may comparatively talk more than him at a party, but if you never experienced social anxiety or the spiritual need to scroll through your phone to avoid small talk, you wouldn’t get him, or love him as much as you do.
Okay, I’m gonna let you in on something that very few women know.
When a guy says things like, ‘I’ve never liked a girl so much after only a few dates’ or he texts you saying he misses you when you barely know each other, he’s not making some kind of grand, everlasting declaration that he’ll always feel this way.
