    Duct Tape

    When you first meet me, you may notice that I'm quiet, until you realize that there's duct tape on my mouth. I am like the Tin Man and you are like Dorothy. (work with me here. Yes, it's a stretch. ) So, out of pity, you gently remove the duct tape. At that point I...

    because I don't talk but then they talk to me and see that I'm absolutely insane (lol).

    I'm pretty soft-spoken at school

    but with my friends my Jersey accent really comes out and I love to yell and sing spontaneously at home

    I'm a pretty shy person.

    I don't normally introduce myself to people. But once we get to know each other it's hard to shut me up. It's weird though cuz at home I'm super crazy and bouncing off the walls but as soon as I get into a public place I completely close up. The only thing I'm really good at is...

    At the early days of friendship,

    you might as well call me mute. I don't care about the awkwardness, because I only to talk if I have something good to say. I call that adjusting. Instead of talking, I observe you. More importantly, I "listen" to you first. (and I just laugh a lot and smile) But as we develop...

    As a young girl I was painfully shy

    and reserved. Adults loved me because I always listened, never made a scene....I was a good girl. The sweetheart, the little doll, the quiet one. *cringes. In all that quietness I observed. Ever watchful. Ever perceiving. In time I learned to speak more. But I'm still the...

    I generally feel better opening up

    and talking to people if they approach me first. I am pretty shy and quiet when I don't know who you are. But once we have spoken a few times I'm a loud mouth :)

    and I'll never shut up once you get to know me. I might start talking about comedians than end up at Japanese snacks (like taiyaki).

    Yeah I'm quiet at first.

    But it's a quiet confidence. It's a quietness of choice, not of fear. It's the deliberate decision to process and observe, rather than blabber or make small talk. Because I hate small talk. Small talk is for the fools, small talk is for the birds. Small talk is for those who...

    People moan and pick on you

    because you're quiet then when you talk they look at you like a piece of crap, like they've just a heard an uninteresting noise.

    I keep myself to myself mostly

    until I get to know you properly, I am known as quite to strangers but when people get to know me I'm loud and brassy. I don't like to reveal all when I start chatting it may take a few months for me to warm up to you

    I tend to be quiet while I silently feel them out. If I determine they aren't really someone I want to waste my time getting to know, I tend to just remain quiet. If they're someone I feel the slightest connection with, I have no problem chatting them up and letting them in...

    When I'm around strangers I don't talk much

    and they think I'm just a shy little butterfly. But what they don't know is that I have a picture of my cousin with the worst haircut ever and I fully intend on using it to blackmail him into buying me Minecraft for Xbox.

    When you first meet me I'll be quiet

    and shy, but if you show me you're a good person and that I can trust you. I'll slowly start to trust you and once I have fully trusted you then you'll get to the know the real me.
