I can handle introversion, but not shyness in a partner.Socially awkward guys just don't know what to say, or say things that other people don't know how to respond to.If I came up and started talking about Doctor Who, and you didn't know what that was, you could either respond with "I've never heard of that. " or "Idk what that is," and have an awkward silence afterwards.
