    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...

    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

    but I can be very shy and not know what to say or how to keep a conversation. It can be a real hell

    Sometimes I think I'm too shy

    that I meet people or see them constantly but I never bridge the gap for friendship. I can be really solitary at times and that really bugs me a lot. In a way it can be seen as good because letting everyone in my circle might be trouble in the future. You can never build trust...

    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...

    Today I saw the most BEAUTIFUL girl.

    I'm a decent looking guy and I'm friendly but how in the heck do I walk up to someone like that!? who seems just perfect? Hate that feeling when it's like you missed out on something that never happened

    I'm very shy. I love meeting new people.

    I'm rarely approached though. I am not one to reach out. I'm the type to speak when spoken too. Long story but kinda beat into me on speaking to people.

    Currently, I'm studying at university -

    and everyone says how its a great opportunity to get to know people. But at first I come across as really shy, no matter how confident I try to be. I have a really nice group of friends but they're all girls, so I think I'm just shy to approach guys?? but guys don't approach me...

    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 am one of those people

    that are really shy and quiet when I first get to know you. But when I am comfortable with you, then that's when all my bluntness and funniness come out. It's always the quiet ones.

    Im that kind of person

    that loves meeting new people but too shy to start something. If someone sat next to me I'd have a battle in my mind like "Do I talk to them?!" "Do they want to talk?!" "Did they sit next to me for a reason?!" But then they talk to me and theyre always nice! Some people are...

    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...

    Yes! I really do, I like everything about it!

    I like the weird, random little conversations and even the moment when it gets all quiet and awkward! It's so fun! xD If only I was less shy, but I have my friend "Alcohol" to help me out! Hahaha xD

    All The Time...

    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...
