    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
