    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...

    Well... On the internet,

    I'm more outgoing and I speak my thoughts more, but in real life... I'm just the exact opposite. Why? Because in real life, I don't even know how to socialize with other humans properly without looking like a person who's suffering from autism (when I have to speak in my native...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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:)

    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.

    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...

    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 know what's going on

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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 ;)

    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 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.

    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...

    I'm a very quiet person.

    The reason is I have a speech impediment. I sit in group of people at work during lunch. I talk with them but not a lot.

    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...

    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).
