    So True

    I can't initiate conversations for the life of me. I grow quiet and have a tough time continuing a conversation. But then again, I love meeting new people. Different people have different opinions, views, experiences, and I love hearing about them cuz then it teaches me to have...

    Every since I was a little girl,

    I was super shy. If I met new people, I would be super quiet around them. But when I feel more comfortable around people and feel I can trust them, I talk a lot, laugh, and I would be outgoing. As I get older, it sometimes is awkward meeting new people, because I like when...

    I don't know if anyone else has experienced this

    or not, but I am more shy with people i know, than with complete strangers. In school i was almost closed to most people, or i didn't really talk to them except for the two or three people who were/are really my friends. We went to "Shakesfest" a Shakespeare festival in a...

    and all that but I'm so shy. Sometimes there's people who I would like to get to know better and it seems like they feel like that for me too but I somehow because of my shyness I kind of keep blocking them. We can never build a real conversation because of me and I think I make...

    That's me ... I am shy (and a little cautious)

    when I first meet someone, but once we get to know each other that will change. I like meeting new people and appreciate everyone's uniqueness.

    I Get Unnoticed Because I Am Small And Shy

    Small asian guy with low self esteem here. People never bother looking or talking to me because i am short so it is pretty hard to get some attention. And walking alongside tall people doesnt help either. Because of that, i am shy to speak to people, but love it when that happens...

    You See Me As An Extrovert. Until We're With Your Friends.

    I'm so eager and excited to meet new people. I have little difficulty starting a conversation with a complete stranger. In fact, I love it, a chance to learn and connect. One might assume at first that I must be an outgoing extrovert, but there is almost nothing farther from the...

    Being shy makes me miss out on opportunities for making friends.  I accept that about myself.  Now I just have to deal with being alone.

    I love meeting new people, to find out about them, to share stories, to learn about them.... but i'm much better on a one-to-one or small group setting rather than large social situations.  The other thing is I am not very good on what they call 'cocktail chatter', i can't do it...

    Sometimes I'm Shy

    I'm not always shy, but I am shy when I meet new people.  You know how they always say that the first impression is very important.  I'm not shy at all around family and close friends.  I always have something to say.  Usually around strangers I'm not shy.  I just do my own...
