    To Shy For Words!

    When I'm with someone I've known for a long time they say I'm very outgoing and loud, but when we are in public i get very shy. And when i meet someone knew i fell like a "nerd". I always something stupid or something i usually wouldn't say. Any advice on how to be myself?

    I don't know how to make friends

    or what to say. I'm always so awkward with things and don't think before I speak :-(

    I usually over-think what I'm going to say

    and then blurt out something entirely stupid. It's just great.

    Please don't try to push the conversation on me

    because 98% of the time I'm trying to push it on you until I find something interesting to say.

    That's why I always lose friends,

    because I never have anything interesting to say and nothing much to talk about.

    I never know how to reply to a text

    or even reply to something someone says to me. I usually end up awkwardly killing the conversation after 2 or 3 texts

    In talking to this guy

    and he thinks I'm not serious but I told him I am. He says that it doesn't seem like it because I pretty much say the same things every conversation we have. I hate it. There's so many things we could talk about but I never know what to say. Even when I do I don't know how to...

    A Hermit In the City
