    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 :)

    I might look very calm

    and introvert at first but as Time goes I become very active and funny 😆

    I pick and choose who I want to talk to.

    I think a lot of people do that but I've noticed that people become resentful when they pick up on it.

    I am quite shy. It takes me a

    while to warm up to people I don't know at first. Once I know you better, I am pretty open.

    People always assume I'm mean

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

    I like to observe what is going on around me

    before I talk to people. I'm really self conscious about saying the wrong thing. It's hard for me to have conversations because I'm in my head too much. Unless I get comfortable.

    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...

    I've always been that one kid

    that everybody never talks to and refers to as the kid that never talks. I have few friends at school and the ones I do have are also quiet like me. Through all of my schools year (I'm in 9th grade now), I've been quiet like this. I want to talk to people and make more friends...

    This is a strange thing to post.

    .. But I'm curious... I go to a small church that has a nice amount of people in it, and one of the persons who goes there is of course a dude... The first time I saw him I thought he was definitely attractive, but didn't think anything more of it. A year goes by and I never talk...

    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'm pretty talkative

    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).

    Very quiet. I don't know what to say to

    strangers to even start a conversation and only respond if they initiate. But, after meeting someone a few times I talk a lot :)

    first which I am. But once we start talking they wish I wouldn't be as social as I was.

    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...

    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.

    I tend to stay quiet

    until someone cracks my shell. Then i talk until their ears run away. Sometimes I feel like it is annoying to them. But oh well.

    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 would never consider myself "shy".

    .. I was just a serious introvert. I was never good at starting a conversation anyways though.

    I'm a quiet person because no one ever listens

    to me when I talk so I've just decided not to talk. It's a pretty sad thing. I can't really name one person in my life that will genuinely listen to anything I'm saying. I have tried to make myself be heard but people don't care what I have to say. And I feel strongly that what...

    Yes, this is treu. I'm shy I don't say anything,

    unless you start talking to me or you look like somebody I can talk to. But my friends know (I think) that I'm actually very hyper. I shout and do when I'm with them:)

    I really need to feel comfortable

    and safe in order to open up around people. And I'm lousy at small talk unless I'm texting it's easier for some reason.

    But then, once you know me,

    you'll find out that I'm still quite. I don't talk loud and never much. But when I do talk you'll find that it can be quite interesting what I have to say ;)
