    I like to people watch every

    where I go. It's a secret habit that I practice and I believe it helps me better interact with other humans.

    I come across as very reserved

    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 wanted to pick a subject of "Whether to

    believe what's in your head." Making reality into unspoken words or what seems reality, is hard, and sometimes you just can't believe your own self.

    Don’t Judge Me Because I’m Quiet,

    Just because I'm quiet doesn't mean I'm mute Doesn't mean I'm boring Doesn't mean I can't be outgoing Just because I'm quiet Don't make fun of me Don't judge how I am Don't treat me like an animal Just Because I'm quiet I still want make friends Still love to have conversations...

    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.

    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 :)

    Opening The Book

    Discrimination gets you nowhere,

    except between a rock and a hard place. Learning about other people can be a life-time experience , can be a Summer vacation, and/or can be a stick in the mud. Whoever you pick to get to know , do it mom artery what, you won't know the outcome.

    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...

    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.

    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 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.

    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 can admit to being shy at first

    when meeting someone new. However, I do get over that. I takes me a while to warm up to most people. Every once in a while I will meet someone who I feel instantly comfortable with. I like when that happens! Then there are some people that I just don't click with. Doesn't mean I...

    I don't like being in the spotlight too often, but i am working on it. Once I feel that a person is not a weirdo or perverted or someone who is looking to get married and will not make me feel awkward while talking to them, then i will tend to talk more freely. Of course i am...

    I'm naturally shy and introverted put me in a

    group of people that I don't know I'm the wallflower...quiet as a mouse. I'm the complete opposite though when you see me with people I've grown up with...I'm the better of attention, always cracking jokes, and with the loudest laugh.

    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.

    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...
