    Very Quite

    It takes a lot to get to know me.  I tend to be very quite and reserved to those I just meet and it takes a lot to bread that shell.

    Maybe I'm Being Insecure?

    I dunno, I am always horribly shy when I meet most ppl. I think its because I've been hurt by too many ppl before. I just find it hard to open up to ppl any more. I have found some ppl though, which I have just connected to from the start. But I am trying to open up to ppl more...

    Do Not Show Any Weakness.

    When I first met my wife; I came to her house which is now "our house", As soon as I walked in the door her mother and stepfather walked in and sat down at the kitchen table. Her mother kept looking me up and down. She had a smug look on her face. I reacted with a defensive...

    I'm Shy When I'm Alone.

    I'm shy depending on how many people I already know there. If I'm with a lot of good friends, then I'll talk.  But sometimes I appear shy only because I like hanging out in the back and relaxin. I'm just kickin back when I'm kickin it.

    I'm very shy at first indeed.

    It really suck because people don't always know how shy I am and they take it sometimes as a disinterest and thing I don't want to get to know them or whatever when in reality I'm just very shy.

    But In Some Circumstances I Shine

    Usually I'm very reserved at first, but with some groups of people I click the moment I meet them. When I'm in my element I can be witty, funny, creative and intelligent. But with most groups of people I adopt a reserved posture.

    Once I get to know someone and feel confident around them, I feel more safe to be myself.
