    I won't start the conversation usually, but if you do, I won't be rude and shut you out most likely.

    Those EP friends who know me, realize how adventurous and outgoing I am. In real Life however, I am a shy little bird that does not want to voice her opinion that often.

    I'm especially shy if someone were to repeatedly compliment my looks or start flirting with me. I most likely will stutter and blush like an idiot.

    For some reason, on EP I am incredibly shy. I'm nervous about pm people. I dunno why... Maybe I'm scared of meeting a perv. In real life, this isn't me at all.

    I'm not a snob, I just don't talk much. Sometimes I just like to listen, but I'm mostly just shy. You know I'm comfortable around you when I seem more talkative and laid back.
