    I am the worst kind of person in western

    society; a shy male. You could not find another combination that would be as frowned down upon by normal social standards. Being shy is to experience the fear and anxiety in one's heart when you try, try as hard as you might to approach someone or to do something within a...

    I enjoy talking to people,

    I just can't start the conversation. I will happily talk to almost anyone as long as they speak first because for some reason I just can't think of the first words to say

    I am generally a shy,

    awkward person. It's tough especially when I first meet someone and I'm all nervous and awkward and generally don't make the best first impression. I hate it.

    its great how if your an socially akward person,

    you will attempt to act natural in a social situation, which will just make you more akward, and then you will think about how akward you just were, which will stress you out more and make you more akward. aahhhh isnt life fking fantastic

    It really sucks being

    so shy and Awkward, like I can barely text people because I just feel like I am annoying them and if I didnt text them first than I would just stop communicating with them entirely. I wish I always new what to say and how to start a conversation but I don't. Sorry I just needed...

    People are always like speak up .

    I don't wanna yell . I have sensitive ears . I talk quietly but it sounds average to me and Talking in a room full of people whether I know them or not gives me anxiety .

    It's pretty painful to have a conversation with

    me In person. One awkward thing I'll do is, if a person gives me a complement like "I like your shoes" I'll have to think of something to say about them. So I'll look them up and down till I find something so they just stand there confused giving me a creeped out look. Then I'll...

    ... people say I am charming and sweet, but I feel like I am soooo shy it's makes me feel insecure. I don't know why I'm like that.

    I can't socialize comfortably with people,

    I can't stare at them in the eyes, I can't keep a strong conversation going. Its too difficult, whenever someone is talking to me I mostly react but I can't connect and I don't really know what to say and that person would walk away and talk to another person and I get mad but I...

    I feel like when I talk to someone new,

    who I really start to like, I have to tiptoe around for a while... I'm scared I'll do something to scare him away or I'll annoy him to where he doesn't want anything to do with me

    When you're too in yourself

    that you rarely let stuff out of your heart, because you know, you'll never get anything good from doing so. On the contrary, you'll find all that's bad when you do so. From the people you love, from the people you endear, from everyone and sometimes.. it gets to be no one at...

    I rarely make eye contact with people

    when I talk. I usually look at a wall or at my lap because that's less nerve-wracking, but it sure is more awkward for them. I'm really shy; I can't talk to ANYONE except my family members and my best friend without getting all nervous and weird. I hate it; I'd do anything to...
