I've Probably Missed Opportunities Because of This

I just get so shy around new people, so I always wait for the to talk to me first. I always worry that I will come off as boring, or weird, or annoying. Also, I don't know if people want to be friends with me. I wait until they talk to me first, and if they sincerely are interesting in me, then I will talk more.

i have the exact same problem but you sometimes have to think they are waiting for you too?

i know what you mean, i get shy around people too not as much as i used to but it still holds me back alot

I know how u feel. I fear they will judge me before they even know me. It seems like i waiting for someone to see me and instantly like me.
