    My attempts at striking up a conversation with

    someone usually end up in failure anyway. I remember a time when I was actually an extremely...boisterous child. I loved to talk and ask questions. Those days are long gone thanks to several years of my peers beating my self-esteem to a pulp... I'm 21 going on 22 now, and I've...

    I'm a huge introvert.

    I have a small circle of friends whom I really care about. I never really "fit in" with the popular people in school since I just focused on doing my own thing. I barely raise my hands to participate in class, even though I know much of the answers. I do enjoy hanging out with...

    Well, I no longer share my religious views.

    The concept of "Free speech", in theory is a right, but practically it's limited. I keep my religious viewpoints and criticism, to myself, people clearly can't handle it. Also, I judge people, and change how I feel after I get to know them.

    I am very quiet I think especially

    when I don't really know somebody. Some people unfortunately take it as disinterest when in fact it's just me being quiet.

    I am quiet most of the time I just stare

    and think. My words get frozen within my lungs and I believe my thoughts are deadly and theres probably a quarantine surrounding my lungs. People tend to ask me, “why are you so quiet?” I just smile, laugh, and shrug. I am quiet most of the time but my mind is L O U D. My...

    I Think Talking Is Overrated

    Some people it seems, just talk to be talking.  They have nothing to contribute, just empty words.  I am a quiet person--as the subject of the group here.  Some people have laughed at this when I've said it, but overall I am pretty quiet.  I do alot of...

    Shy And Quiet

    I've always been the quiet, shy, introverted type. It's hard for me to think of what to say and keep a conversation going. Because of this, I guess it's very hard to get to know me and befriend me, so I have rarely had friends. I hope to find some people on here willing to be...

    I'm naturally introverted (unsurprisingly

    as I'm posting on here) and because of this loud noises can scare the crap outta me and arguing has reduced me to tears. Is it just me that finds that all of their extroverted friends don't get this? I'm sick of getting stick for it.

    You're So Quiet

    "You're so quiet". I don't know how many time I have been told this. It wouldn't bother me as much if the individuals saying this wouldn't make this statement with such disgust. As if being a quiet person was some type of deadly, incurable plague. I use to let comments on my...

    Especially if you first meet me,

    it takes a lot of time for me to open up. I have to trust you as well. The lucky small amount of people I trust should understand that. They care about me and it's good. I just hope I don't let myself get misled anymore by people I meet. I am kind but people can mistake my...

    Sometimes you have to remind me

    when I'm being too distant or when I'm a little too quiet. It can seem like something's wrong with me but no, I'm just naturally quiet. So I can't always notice when I'm being too quiet.

    People are so annoying with their never ending

    questions. I just want to be left alone, and not be judged. You get judged if you talk too much or too less. I'm not unhappy, sad, lonely, depressed, or angry. I appreciate silence in a world that never stops talking.

    I wish could talk more.

    I am very quiet. I lost all the words to say. Actually, I want to talk about emotions. But people can’t relate. They are sometimes sacred to open up… Some people aren’t good to be with. Felt uncomfortable to talk with them because I have been traumatized with abusers...

    Generally speaking, I don't think being quiet

    is actually a bad thing. Personally I don't enjoy quite talking and instead I prefer listening and observing unless I'm being spoken to directly at school. I love working alone but I don't mind working in groups as well, for me whichever is fine as long as I can get the work...

    When I like a guy I just stare at him

    and hope that he catches on. I hope he likes me back and approaches me. It usually never happens. I still have hope it will one day; when I find the perfect guy.

    In that quiet person in the back of the class

    who draws and never raises their hand. For me being able to just sit down in silence is the best. I love it when it's raining and the sun is still out and you can hear the river running in the background. So peaceful. )O(

    Why is it that when I'm quiet people ask me

    what's wrong and why I'm not talking to them, but when I'm loud, then it's a normal thing?...Why can't I just be quiet for one second?

    One thing about me. In most cases,

    unless I really want you to know something, I will not just tell you things. When I tell people things, I almost always get the feeling that they didn't want to know or couldn't give a care. So through my life it has been my mind set that if you do not ask, you don't want to...

    I hate it when my mom says "why are you

    so quiet," or "someone ought to bring you out of your shell," or anything like that. It's so annoying I mean for ***** sake get over it, we can't all be extroverted and outgoing, some of us actually like being by ourselves.

    Not Always

    I am extremely quiet around people I do not know well. But, I am quiet for some time when I'm with a certain person very important to me, although, that will get a lot better soon. I am never quiet around very close friends, unless I am feeling upset or depressed.

    mistake me for stuck up in a social setting because I don't speak much. It isn't that I am not interested in what you are saying or what is going on, it is that I'm watching too intently, listening to responses and comparing them to facial expressions. What people say and what...

    I'd much rather listen

    than speak. I give input where I see necessary but other than that I'm pretty silent, and not very loud when I do speak either. I get a lot of comments about how I mumble or I'm soft-spoken. It's not intentional, I'm just naturally pretty quiet.

    I tend to be very quiet/shy.

    But if you get to know me, like my girlfriend, I can get very talkative. But very few have been lucky enough to know the whole me!
