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

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,859 People

    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.

    Once I get comfortable around you,

    I'm not that quiet. I wouldn't say I'm obnoxious or crude, but I'm not quiet. :P

    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.

    Opening The Book

    I'm friendly and always polite to anyone I meet, but I also tend to be quiet and reserved. I pick and choose my words carefully...I am cautious about offending people. I don't share a lot of personal information...I keep thoughts and feelings to myself. When first meeting me...

    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.

    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 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...

    I am a naturally shy girl.

    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 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 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.

    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...

    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 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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
