    Don't ****ing let someone you're attracted to or getting to know, know that you are shy and oh so nervous or intimidated. It makes the other really ****ing nervous, just sit there and be shy no need to express it.

    On another note .....

    Also, guys stop lying about your shy when your the one who had the courage to approach the woman in the first place. We can see right through that game, you ain't making no one feel special nice try.

    No you are not boring.
    People won't always care about your opinion and honestly that shouldn't matter.

    Don't know if it is for a shy person or not. This is what I feel I would tell myself. I am really shy in real life.

    I'm talking about both.

    No snarkyness- if you are really concerned about helping others ( which I'm not its more of a rant) you should go ahead and make your own thread about it.

    Wow, you really have something against shy people.

    I kinda get it, I mean, I started a all girls sixth form but went to a mixed high so have guy friends and I don't really get shy around them, but some of these girls barely speak to guys as are too shy in front of them. Which i struggle to understand.

    Though, I do t think being loud is really all that amazing either.

    "Stop lying"? Guys are shy too but some take the time to build up the courage to approach someone they like because if they don't then they know they'll regret it.

    It took me 4 to 5 weeks to actually build the courage to approach a girl I liked. Who the hell lies about being shy? Has shyness become attractive or something?

    Shyness is seen as cute because it makes someone appear more vulnerable. I know, it's stupid.

    I literally can't stop trembling and overthinking when I'm in uncomfortable social situations, I really don't think it's cute. It's so embarrassing!

    Other people being shy makes you nervous?! What's so difficult about being sympathetic and kind to put them at ease?

    So if there's something you'd like to try, if there's something you'd like to try, ask me I won't say no, how could I?
