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

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 14,093 People

    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.

    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...

    This is quite accurate,

    especially for those born in the 90's and are around 20 years old. I was shy around my peers, but get all weird once time has passed.

    It depends. I have one acquaintance in

    particular who talks...a lot..though none of it really matters. She talks about celebrities, and sports, and celebrities and fashion and celebrities lol. There isn't really much depth to her, and she lies quite a bit, so I usually let her do the talking. There just isn't really...

    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.

    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 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.

    I am a pretty quiet person

    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.

    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?

    People often mistake my quietness

    for arrogance or think I'm snobbish. I am neither, I'm actually the total opposite. I've always been pretty shy and quiet, but as soon as you get to know me I come right out of my shell and never stop talking.

    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...

    and as a matter of fact I'm a bit confused. Long story short. We met online on an anonymous app. We hit it off right away. We switched to a chatting app within days of meeting and chatted almost daily up until last week. He said he hated social media and was suspicious and...

    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...

    and quiet . especially if you're meeting Mr for the first time. I'm very careful of how I present myself .it's only when I meet frequently and I'm in a comfortable place that you'll get to know how I am. One I talk you can't shut me up. The more you try to stop me from making...

    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.

    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.

    according to my friends their first impression

    of me is that I am innocent baby, quiet, and angelic but once they got to know me or be on a one on one conversation with me they think otherwise sometimes they are surprised at what they might discover but I am sometimes quiet (especially when I am sleepy).
