    Here are some ways to overcome Shyness:

    1)Make a commitment to walk away from shyness.

    2)Note the situations where you feel shyness holding you back most strongly.

    3)The next time you are in this situation, do something just a little bit more outgoing than you would normally do (smile, make eye contact, ask a question, etc.).

    4)Relax and remember that mistakes help you learn.

    5)Repeat steps 1-4 until you have reached your desired level of 'outgoingness.'

    As you know, this can be a really tough process. Don't give up.
    Once you cycle through the steps a few times it gets easier and easier.
    It takes a lot of practice, hard work, and guts to beat this thing.

    There is a simple solution to overcome this problem. Leave him in the circle of ladies for few days in your relation. tell them in advance to tease him. This would root out the fear and shyness from his mind.

    Best of luck!

    Make him to figure out, the things make him shy.
    Suggest him some good books to improve self confidence and personality development.
    Try taking him out as much as possible, also try sending him alone for nearby place, which will really help him to come out of shyness when he meets up new people.
