Discrete love-shyness theory
From Love-shy.com wiki: A wiki for the dating-challenged
Discrete love-shyness theory posits that love-shyness is a phenomenon of its own, and is distinct from involuntary celibacy. Supporters argue that shyness, inhibition, and an inability to respond to or recognize indicators of interest are unique love-shy traits and should not be conflated with incel. In many cases, it can be seen as a defense against attempts to dilute love-shyness and make involuntary celibacy the more relevant phenomenon.
Discrete love-shyness theory opposes both majority incel theory and continuum theory, though the most vehement opponents are looksists, who claim that these love-shys are attempting to take refuge in an elitist idea. Many non-looksist and feminist-friendly opponents of love-shyness also question the existence of love-shyness as a discrete phenomenon.
