    Even after getting to know someone, it takes me a while to feel completely comfortable with them. I still have my shy moments even if I consider that person a friend. The best example is my personality at work. I have been there almost a year and know everyone pretty well. I'm...

    Shy people end up being some of the coolest

    people you could ever know. You just have to try and know them first.

    I don't get shy around guys.

    I just get shy around a group of people. When I hang out with friends I get shy like crazy. But if I'm with someone just me and him, I'm funny sweet and outgoing.
