    Part of what makes me seem like a quiet person

    is that I am polite, a good listener, and don't want to impose on other people. I'm not just going to start talking about myself unless someone asks me. However, it seems like other people do not ask. Why is that?

    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...

    I am an introvert and shy girl

    and often get misconstrued as egoistic. I open up once the comfort and trust is established. I am very slow in making friends and I hope people here will be patient with me.

    Well, OK maybe not *that* quiet*

    but it does take me a long time to fully let my guard down with most people.

    Most people know me to be shy

    and unusually quiet. And in some cases, they aren't wrong. I usually am quiet and shy. But once I begin to get comfortable with someone, (not just after being around them for a long period of time) but after I've let my guard down with someone, letting them into my deepest...

    In school, parties and public places,

    people can't even realise that I'm there. But when i make friends, well the good ones, i act like a crazy bouncing ball. The people who are closer to me say that I am a chattering box. But in school, teacher, students often complain to my mom that I don't talk at all.

    Opening The Book

    I'm friendly and always polite to anyone I meet, but I also tend to be quiet and reserved. I pick and choose my words carefully...I am cautious about offending people. I don't share a lot of personal information...I keep thoughts and feelings to myself. When first meeting me...

    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...

    I've always been the quiet one.

    I'm not antisocial just selectively social. For example if I need to go to the grocery store I will go in get what I need and get out with as little social interaction as possible. A man on a mission. My mom and dad now they were very social. They can walk up to anybody and just...

    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...

    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.

    I have always been that way.

    And try not to get to comfortable around people because anything can happen with people you don't know. I just really don't talk because it is not my forte but once I get to know someone. That will be at least more then a year or two then I will feel better. Honestly, I...

    People assume that because I'm quiet

    that I'm a prude. I absolutely love their expressions when they get to know me and learn that I am by no means, a prude. Priceless.

    When it comes to talking I tend to be a bit of

    a minimalist. My goal is to say the most with the fewest amount of words. Only in a real world setting though. Here behind the safety of perceived anonymity...I could give a 3 hour lecture on late 80's/early 90's pro wrestling.

    Being told to come out of your shell by some

    scummy bloke who has nothing to do with u is so aggravating and what's even more aggravating is they are only interested because I'm a young woman who they possibly find attractive. I'm not a cabaret act!
