So Quiet! But Am I Really So Boring?

I've got such a problem with socializing with new people. Ha, I suppose that's what happens when you've been isolated for years because of bullying. At least, with me. I only started making friends again after grade 8, and I still only have a small group of 'close' friends. But yeah, I would like to be able to make more friends and be a more talkative person all the time without thinking someone is gonna think I'm too weird, or stupid or anything like that. I've got a strange sense of humor sometimes, and I *can* be pretty dumb sometimes, but then I suppose that's a part of that sense of humor. I'm so easily amused, but then other people aren't. Oh well. Sometimes I kind of run out of things to talk about because my mind blanks. So maybe I bore people away? =o Sucks for me.

Yeah, I guess it wouldnt hurt.....Im so damn guarded tho, and it never fails, once I let my guard down I live to regret it! And I try not to think that way, honestly! Everyone here, for the most part, is pretty nice tho! :)

xD Wow, we're the same when it comes to this. I like having a few close friends rather than a lot of 'friends' as you say, but it wouldn't hurt to have a few more people who know me better either. ^^"

I'm the same way. But ya know what? Ive figured out that if someone really likes you or wants to be your friend it wont matter how 'dumb' or 'crazy' you are. I am a little ditzy at times but my real friends love me anyway! Infact, sometimes they love me for it, I can really make people laugh when I know they are sincere. Another thing, IMO, I would rather have a few close friends than a billion 'friends'.
