    Always when I hang around my friends, half the time I never say anything, sometimes I just can't seem to get myself to talk at all. Sometimes my friends would turn around and jump cause they didn't notice me there. I hate it that I'm so invisible sometimes. But I've been getting...

    Don't say anything, but I'm shy. I hate it and wish that there was something I could do about it. Nothing is worse than feeling like your chest is closing up and you can't get any air... not being able to speak...WHAT IS GOING ON!!! Enough already! I thought I was going to...

    If You're Shy, You're Shy

    No big deal and no shame in admitting you are. I'm pretty open about my shyness nor do I get defensive when people talk about how shy I am. It's true. I am shy.

    Maybe She Likes Me

    I really really like this girl who let me be her first kiss ever. I really want to just date her and be able to hold her hand, nothing sexual. I wish I could tell her that but I'm really shy

    I'm Shy With New People.

    I guess I have trust  issues or something. Or maybe I'm afraid of being judged harshly even though I play off the I-d-g-a-f image well but I'm really nice and I've been told I keep pretty good conversation. :)

    Really Shy.

    For some reason, I've always been shy. I hate being the new kid because of that, and believe me, I've been the new kid many times. It is hard for me to make new friends or socialize by my own, since I'm always worried about what to say, or what they're going to think about me...

    Saying I am shy is practically the first thing I do when I meet them because I don't want them to think my lack of interaction is due to being snobby or uninterested.
