There's nothing wrong with being shy.
People who talk the most invariably have the least to actually say.
That is all.
Don't see how it's gross
Ugh, I've got a shy person stuck to my shoe!
It's been a year, IT DOESN'T FUCKING SURPRISE ME.
Lots of them are just boring, innit.
they just dont like you
Who are flabberghasted that said people don't like them enough to engage with them
I don't want no fly guy
I just want a shy guy
i'm shy really though
quit appropriating our struggle.
i am shy in real life i don't talk and i look at the floor
Especially when you drink loads in social situations to overcome your shyness and end up acting like a fucking ninny, but still can't talk to strangers or go and dance.
(of this thread)
nahhhhhhh fuck this.
so I just look somewhere else and don't talk.
It feels like my brain just sticks in listen mode and absolutely nothing enters my head that could contribute to the conversation that might be going on around me. It's in the wrong mode but I can't change it. Also I'm probably just boring, etc. Night.
otherwise I can't function properly.
in listen mode.
sometimes when i wonder why i'm not contributing i really listen to what the other people are saying and it's mostly filler. some people just feel uncomfortable if they're not saying words, however boring they are.
don't get me wrong i'm sure i'm very very boring too i just don't know how they summon the energy.
your first sentence is right, your second second is wrong and your third sentence isnt really a thing
when you really get down to it
shy people will let you hunt them. You are the hunter and they are the prey. a shy person will not typically make the first move, or any moves, it is up to you.
it really annoys me how if you're quiet or reserved, it's assumed you're shy or introverted.
I'd rather not converse with most of the population because I have nothing to say to them and no interest in what they have to say to me. it's tiresome, it wears me down.
this isn't me being a misanthrope, it's just a fact. I mean, it's not a constant; I'm pretty compassionate, and people can be surprising, but most of the time I feel like I can't relate at all to most people, and it feels oppressive. because if I was to just be myself, most. people would be pretty nonplussed. so I feel obliged to normalise myself.
I mean, I'm polite at the least. but I'd much rather just keep myself to myself unless I'm talking to someone I can connect with as my truest self.
