    In most situations ( not just talking to a crush, cos um id never talk to a crush haha)I find myself "trying to say something in the simplest way possible" so instead of saying " I'd like the purple one please! " I'd be like "umm purple"

    Shy. And when I do have to talk, I over-analyse what I say as well, which often leads to stuttering and mixing up words.

    Actually I never shut up. I just blush with it. And laugh a lot, which is sometimes inappropriate...especially at funerals lol

    I know..I am terrible.

    I either rush to the point where I have to stop and repeat every word or I say nothing until whoever I'm talking with walks away looking back at me pitifully. Don't worry, one day I'll create a pill that solves all these problems. Imagine all the possibilities! :woo:

    Well I definitely did once.

    *On my work experience*
    Scottish guy I was working with: How're you?
    Me: Gooood (in a stupidly ott Scottish accent, and I'm not even Scottish)

    I promptly started babbling rubbish to distract him from my idiocy.

    No real difference.

    Don't really get nervous when talking though. When talking to large groups I make an effort to talk more slowly but that's because I generally talk quite fast anyway.

    If I'm stressed at the time I hardly say a thing

    If I'm not then I talk non stop

    If I talk to the guy I've liked for a number of years (we talk daily now) I end up talking normally but when I see him I get all shy and embarassed

    I spend ages trying to think what I could say, then I spend time thinking 'does what I'm about to say make sense?', then I think 'I know I'm going to mess up so why say anything.' My daily thought process flowchart.

    I start blabbering :facepalm2: But in a shy way too, and sometimes then I apologise at the end of it. Also, my sentence structure is liable to failure.

    I talk about the same as I always do, which isn't too much or too little, but I'm more likely to stutter or to blush.
