    It's Not To Deceive Anyone

    If I don't feel comfortable, I'm not going to do something I don't especially like to do, that will make me feel worse. For these who took the time, apparently, they don't regret it. Some of them have been around for more than 20 years.If I'm friends with you, or comfortable...

    Sorta

    I'm pretty quiet at first but I warm up quickly, especially if you make the effort to befriend me. It's not that I'm shy; instead, I'm rather uncomfortable around strangers.

    Boo! Scared Ya ;)

    I guess I usually don't feel the need to talk. Then, if I feel comfortable around you, I like to chatter your ear off with every unimportant detail of my inane life.

    Shy At First

    Around people I don't know, it's very hard to open up, and especially when I'm put on the spot. I hate that. However, when I get to know people, it eases my anxiety somewhat, and I'm more open and able to just chill. It bugs me when people think I'm being stuck up, I just...

    Opening The Book

    This Is Me

    I don't end up saying much to people I meet that are new. If I built trust in you, feel I have a connection with you, know we both can have a fun time together, then I will show you the other side of me that I rare share with people which is the fun side of me.

    I realize that everyone is different.

    Some are boisterous and outgoing in their nature. Others (like myself) are reserved and quiet. I am more so reserved but quiet, until you get to know me. As explained in one of my other posts, I have had issues with opening up to others. While I don't have low self esteem, and...

    But When I Have Something To Say...

    Sometimes I feel like most people go around talking constantly for the sake of breaking up the silence. At work, on the train, walking down the street... all I hear is a lot of people talking about mostly nothing. Not me. I've always been the quiet type. I'm very private and...

    I have always been like this,

    since I was a child. The only difference is that the older I get, the more shy (in person) I get. I feel it has a lot to do with me being bullied about my weight. I can not say that is the only reason, but I feel it is the main one. Aside from that, if you treat me with...

    Two Sides Of Me

    Some of my friends would say, that I'm talkative, and that I don't shut up. Some others would say that I'm quiet, and don't like talking to people at all. Both of them are right. I am shy/antisocial, and try to avoid starting conversations with people I don't know, or barely know...

    I don't like to talk.

    I hate the sound of my own voice...but sometimes, if it's the right subject, or I'm in exactly the right mood...I jabber away. I talk and talk and talk and sometimes I forget to breathe.

    It's True, I'm A Little Shy At First

    People would normally describe me as the quiet type, a loner, or shy. I guess I can see that. I am pretty shy around people. I am typically not the type to talk to someone first, even if I am interested in them. That's probably something I should work on. I often wonder how many...
