I Am Shy But Love Meeting New People

    I am probably one of the most shy people you

    will ever meet, but when people approach me it really makes my day :D. Anyone have tips on how to get over shyness? :)

    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'm shy around people

    that know me. But I'm a fireball of personality when I meet new people because they don't know my background or where I come from. They have no clue that I'm originally shy so I can be as outgoing as I want and it wouldn't be weird at all

    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...

    People have to approach me first

    or I will never talk to them. I don't care if I'm dying to talk to that person, I won't talk to them first. Also, it takes me a hella long time to get comfortable around people, so I will remain shy for a longtime afterwards. I honesty do love meeting new people and possibly...

    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...

    I Get Unnoticed Because I Am Small And Shy

    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.
