My friend braided my hair today. Usually I have stereotipical emo hair so lots ofpeople complimented me. It went like this
Person: "Hey, your hair looks really good"
Me: "Shut up" - AnonymousChick
Not true. A lot of shy people have actually very bubbly warm personalities; but you have to get through our shyness first. And that's not easy. - Britgirl
What a coincidence,I was also making a shy list today... - DapperPickle
Oh, Lord. Does this mean not bathing? Mindlessly repeating "far out, man? " Scarfing hummus and organic macaroons? Matching headbands (Union Jack and Old Glory on alternating days)? Tell you what, though. Two things I desitively posilutely WILL NOT do: smoke the wacky tabaccy, or wear sandals. Ever.

Well, V...your newer ones are getting through, what about on other users' lists? Are they getting through? - BritgirlV 5 Comments
Even with other shy people! Actually, it's even worse. As a shy woman, I'd rather be surrounded by people who know how to help me bring me out of myself. - Britgirl

Usually with writing, creating flamboyant, outgoing characters and fascinating scenarios. Drama and acting helps too. It lets us be someone other than ourselves. It's easier to play the part of an extrovert than it is to be ourselves. Go figure. - Britgirl
Had to suppress the urge to downvote that comment, Beege. Some of us like you just the way you be treacherous terrain 'n'all
Shy people will sometimes go completely the opposite to type. Don't let silly behaviour and a lot of talking fool you. It's just nerves. - Britgirl
The fear of failure or being laughed at is a killer for any shy person. It's not that we don't want to venture further, we just...can't! Even though our minds are fiercely independent. - Britgirl
Jealousy is a major factor. The fact that we see other people going out, talking freely and doing things that we wish we had the nerve to do. - Britgirl
Not to be confused with "lonely" Shy people feel that no one else is as shy as they are and feel that there must be something wrong with them. - Britgirl
True, loneliness can cause sadness. - Arcxia
It's quite a nice feeling knowing that some people feel the want and need to take care of you. They feel protective of you. - Britgirl
