    No problem Just give it a try, that's what I'd do, I'm a very curious and suspicious person anyway...

    I see a mod, edders, changing the name of my title! Doh! I liked that name!!! Put it back Edmund, please!
    Curious and suspicious? Im' like that. Do you think I'm always asking questions when I talk to you? I don't see how some people expect to be able to talk to people without knowing a thing about the person they're talking to.

    Just thought I'd mention I typed you with Eric (I used his real name) into the Love Calculator and you got 62%. Sorry, I just had to.

    im not a shy person, although i fluctuate between being 'normal' and 'extroverted' depending on my mood, when im out with friends
    I sometimes try and classify myself as being either introverted and extroverted, but I just can't! I'm going to find a personality test if I can, there's a good one somewhere that gives your type a name and plots your position on a graph.

    Yeah, you ask a lot of questions. It's only natural. I like asking questions, I like knowing new things about new people, interesting.

    Oh, you didn't did you? Well at least it was only 62%.

    I am quite shy, but for some reason more around girls than around boys (I am a girl) I find that girls are more likely to judge you from first impressions, and boys are easier to just laugh and joke around with. But I agree it is far far easier on the internet, but I still get worried, like posting on this forum (have been looking at it for agggess but have hardly ever posted!) Once people get to know me though, i just dont stop talking and joking around!!!

    I prefer the low-key hostility my presence seems to generate. It's much more fun.

    I am getting more confident since I started University. They make you do things like presentations which really helps. I don't think twice about doing that kind of stuff now. However when it comes to talking to girls I am still very shy especialy if I fancy them I if she says hiya I will just mutter somthing vaguely like Hiya back.

    I have improved a lot though and I am not quite that bad anymore. I am still too shy though and probably make a right **** of myself at times.

    I know how easily some girls (especially some of the more intelligent ones that I know) can tell if you fancy them, so I try and act just normal, like I would with any other girl.

    I think you can tell if a boy fancies you by how they speak. If they're nervous and stutter then there's a chance of then liking you...

    Same I guess.. I get a bit nervous but luckily I manage it...

    Like when we are testing the mic for assembly at school, if I go up, even if I'm in front of an empty hall I'll be stuck for something to say and the guy trying to adjust it at the back will be like "Fish, say something!"
