Im a shy highschool boy but I really liked this girl we talked a lot She leaned on me but I was afraid to put my arm Around her I don't know why?
You just told me why: you're shy! Shyness is a hard thing to overcome when it comes to girls, but you should work on separating how you feel that people regard you from how people actually regard you. Try to police your brain when you notice it getting shy, and use rational thought to decide what the actual situation is. This will help you in other ways than with just girls. You can also work on shyness with a counselor or psychologist--which is a great idea if you find that being shy is really holding you back from things you want.
However, lots of girls like shy guys, so don't sweat it too much.
