    I keep to myself, only speak

    when spoken to mainly because I couldn't start a conversation if my life depended on it. I be been told that people think I'm a "mute". Quiet around everyone except my best friend.

    So a student teacher asked me the way to a

    classroom today and while I was telling him I could feel myself going bright red. Why? I hate it. I don't even know why i would blush like that. It was so embarrassing. He must think I'm really weird. Hope I don't get him for a class cos I'll probably just go red and everyone...

    People who know me don't realize it about me

    though. I'm really nice to everybody and basically hide my sensitivity. My body language is friendly, forceful, open and dominant so that's exactly what people take me as. The hard part is when people expect me to jump through the hoops of what they think I am though.

    I just wanna know something.

    Am I girlfriend material? Am I good enough to have a girlfriend? Do I have any chance at all? I just want to know the honest truth from real people because I grew up being told otherwise by so many bullies in school and today I still have that fear from the bullies so I am super...

    My Shyness Defines Me And Has Defined My Life And Will Define Me In The Future

    I am a shy person.  It has pluses and minuses alike.   For instance, because of my bashfulness, I am a more aesthetic and observant person.  However, when I must confront a stranger, an acquaintance or even some relatives, I am afraid and anxious.   The only family that I...

    I hope I can accept what I love

    and enjoy for once instead of hiding everything from friends and family... and being honest.

    and it's just easier to stay away

    I am a very shy person

    and getting close to someone is very hard for me. I always feel like im going to say something lame. I start feeling really hot and my hands get clammy.

    People hurt me too much.

    If I tell you secrets all the time, its because I have put all my trust in you and I don't trust to many people

    I am definitely a shy person.

    Especially when I first meet someone. It's made life very difficult indeed and I wish I wasn't so shy.

    When that one person inspires you to go further

    but you are chained to emotions. Is the worst feeling of them all

    I am a shy individual.

    It's not like I choose to be shy, I just am. I didn't used to be shy, I remember I could just like go to Goodwill or something and make a best friend. I honestly don't see how, now (brown cow) that I think about it. I wish my shyness would just fly away. That'd make life a whole...

    I often keep to myself with new people I meet

    and only speak when spoken to. I'm actually getting better about it these days, but it's a process.

    Thank God For The Internet

    This is one thing I like about computers because I'm bad at social skills.

    I'm so shy around people.

    I'm afraid of people will judge me. I just want to be friendly. I don't judge people but they judge me. I've been experience this before. I need help!

    I've decided to make a move on the person

    that I really like. It's super scary and I don't feel one ounce of confidence, but I've got to go for it. I don't want to live my life in regret just because I'm shy
