I Am a Pretty Quiet Person, Until You Get to Know Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,040 People

    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...

    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 :)

    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.

    I get so shy in front of everyone.

    My twin sister is the exact opposite. It takes me a while to warm up.

    you'd be surprised on how loud I am. It just really depends on how comfortable I am talking to you.

    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 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...

    Most of the time I will talk my head off to

    anyone, but I usually have to have at least one person that I know really well around me. If I am completely alone in a group of people I barely know, I will quietly listen. It feels weird to be quiet, but some people are just harder to talk to than others. Does anyone else feel...

    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!

    When I'm in a group of people

    that I don't know, is very difficult for me to talk because I'm a quiet person and I tend to watch people's behavior πŸ™ˆ I'm always daydreaming, though I love a good laugh..once I get to know people I'm very friendly.

    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 am quiet, and I am awkward,

    sometimes I'm antisocial. But if you can spare the time to get to know me, I'm much more then that. And so are all of the people on this world who are also quiet, awkward, and anti social. We are all much, much more.

    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...

    I don't have social anxiety because that's serious stuff and it shouldn't be taken lightly. I don't talk easily to people because I had a rough times with people who I thought were my best close friends. And it really hurts when you go behind my back and stab me maybe more than...

    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...

    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 guess it just happens naturally

    for me, I am a little quiet in person or especially around groups but as you get to know me I feel more relaxed and open up more, I guess you could say that at first I just sit back and observe before I move forward.

    for a younger woman to exchange email with on an ongoing basis. Maybe eventually meet if we get tired of typing. I am kind and easy to talk to and also discreet. I am in the Ottawa, Ontario, Canada area. Drop me a line and lets get acquainted.
