    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...

    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...

    On Being Shy

    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 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...

    It's Getting Too Tiring

    I tend to keep to myself a lot. It's not that I don't like people but between just wanting to keep in my head or finding it difficult to relate to others, I just don't socialize that often. When starting a conversation with anyone, I find it hard to keep up. When walking on the...

    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...

    Well like it says I'm a shy guy naturally. Now if I'm in a certain mood where I "gotta" have fun I don't have any walls and I say hi to everyone. I think it might have something to do with being depressed but learning to talk to people Evan when I don't want to. Is anyone else...

    My Shyness Causes So Much Frustration.

    There are so many opportunities that i'v missed out on because of being shy. I'v missed out on meeting good people, i'v made bad impressions on people, I cant have as much fun because I find it hard to express myself. I feel this sense of worthlessness and that im not good enough...

    Watching

    I'll see a new person walking down the hall. I'm often just captured by the way people walk, look, and talk. I just watch them. When I talk to them, my voice is..isn't good. its too loud, too quite, just...wrong.

    Crazy, Huh?

    If someone starts a conversation with me and shows some interest in me, I am all for it.  But I hardly ever am the one to initiate anything.  I never have.  I can start conversations for work with no problem, but socially I choke.
