    I am very shy at first.

    I have a hard time letting people in and trusting them so it can take years for me to warm up to a person but when I do I can be my goofy, hyper self without worrying much about if they like me or not. I wish I didn't do that, I wish I could just be me from the start but..easier...

    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 tend to find that in any social

    or business gathering. There are those who feel they need to be heard. There are those who raise their voices in order to be heard. And there are those who'dlove to raise a ruckus. But can't.

    Cautious

    I am always a bit shy and cautious when I meet people for the first time. I need to get to know them. When I do I am a pretty open person and love to make close friends that I would do anything for.

    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...

    Everyone thinks i'm quiet

    I am a pretty quiet person,

    until you get to know me. I can be very shy, maybe too shy sometimes. I have always been that way, maybe its why I don't make friends easily and why I have a hard time interacting with people, but once you get to know me, and once I start talking to people and getting to know...

    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...

    Brick Walls

    I like having a brick wall between me an the other person in the beginning.  I need to feel the person out as to what kind of a person they are with me.  I don't judge people. Who they are and what they do is their business but I need to know if they fit in with my personality...

    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 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.

    described me as shy. lol TRUST ME!!! I am NOT shy!!! I may be quiet when you meet me but it is not because I am shy. It is because I am gaging you and observing you. I am very bubbly. I get excited over the tiniest things. I am a shrieker when I see sparkly anything. I am not...

    I think for the most part i am really really

    quiet. But if you do take the time to talk to me and we talk consistently then I will start to slowly open up and you'll go from me writing sentences to reply to writing Paragraphs sometimes to reply. I'll start telling you things that you ask about and if it is something...

    I don't talk a lot, and find it difficult to

    give a stranger a reply. But if you know me better, I will talk a lot more to you. I'm much on the background and will not easily ask questions. But to a friend I talk a lot about everything. I listen good and love to make friends.

    During school, I'm not the outgoing person.

    I sit there in class, and do my work. I don't raise my hand, I don't talk to people unless I know them. I don't know why though; I try to talk more but I never seem to be able to. I only ever seem to come out of my shell when it's lunch and I'm with my group of friends. Whenever...

    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 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...
