Soft Spoken

I've always been the shy, quiet one.
It makes me nervous to initiate  conversation with others.
But I am working on it with God's help, I'm becoming bolder.

I used to never initiate conversation. But my BF who is a social butterfly has suggested that I need to try so I can get used to doing it. So I have been trying a little the past few months and it's certainly not easy! Sometimes it never goes past the first introduction or first joke (I usually try to come up with something funny if I can). Most of the time the convo just peters out. Very frustrating, but I'm going to try and not let it deter me otherwise I will never get over being shy.<br />

Good luck to you!

I'm a quiet one, too :/ Somehow, growing up, I ended up having a very social bff. It was an interesting situation. Now that we're living further apart, I'm like you: learning to make the first move. Not easy -- a little easier online for me... sort of. What do you find most difficult about it?

I used to be shy, but I realized you only live once, so make the most out of it and meet new people.<br />
Thats why I joined the gym when I was 18 and except for a few breaks because of work and things that came up I always go about 5-6 days a week. So I meet plenty of people and I'm sure you will too.<br />
Good luck:)

Keep up the good work :)
