    Not Too Open At First

    Most people wouldn't believe this in my real life but I am actually quite shy. I learned to overcome it sort of but there are so many things that i am shy about until I know a person well.  So if I seem to answer you in one word answers then I am sizing you up and it is just...

    I'm usually the quiet one sitting by myself

    I am willing to open up to people

    if they are their for a friend. But it will take a while, maybe 2 or 3 days to open up and feel comfortable, but don't feel like you can't talk to me, because I will talk with anyone.

    Not Stuck Up Just Shy...

    I'm not great with people that I don't know - at least not when I have to meet them face to face. Social situations and gatherings make me nervous and I'm not big on being the centre of attention. Sometimes I like to just watch other people rather than take part and often I'll...

    I think it definitely takes me a

    while to warm up to people, but in the end I eventually get comfortable with people and am not shy.

    I'm that person in the back of the room

    that never speaks, only listens and looks. I know everything about you, but you know nothing of me because I don't speak. You only suppose. You only assume what is true about me.
