so the last thing you want to do is to make the first move towards him.If he likes you, he will come to you I can assure you.
There is a fine line between being nice to someone and validating him too much.
Surely you can compliment him on something you genuinely think it is worth the compliment…but you should not do it just to be in his good books…I mean it will flatter his ego but will not make him like you more.
There is always a good reason why he does not come to you…because most men, even the shy ones, find a way to make a contact with the woman they chose…
The reason could be that he is already taken, or he just is not attracted to you enough to make a move.
They derive a satisfaction from it that us women cannot understand and will value far more a woman If they have to work for her.
