Ok so I'm 15 and I've been a pretty shy person for most of my life. I can be loud at times but it just doesn't happen like before. Anyway so I've been trying to open up and talk more in school but it just doesn't work. I just don't have anything to say. When I have something to say I say it, but most of the time I just keep to myself. Maybe I'm just not trying hard enough. I honestly don't know. Only time I talk is when asked something or spoken too. I don't like saying **** just to say it. And sometimes I feel like if I drag out a conversation the other person thinks I'm boring and annoying(I know I think that when others do that). I guess I'm just going to have to accept the fact that I'm a shy guy. I can't force it.

Just talk **** 24/7. But be intelligent about it.

It works!
Size matters. My Mommy told me so when I almost poked out her eye while she was changing my diaper the other day.

THe thing is if your shy your just a little bitch

You'd better be joking.


That's just the way you are. If you really cared about talking to someone that badly, you would. If you think it's a problem, then just try to find someone you have things in common with and talk to them about that stuff. It's not a bad thing, it's just you.

Im the same exact way. I only talk if I need to but if I dont like certain people in the class I just tune out the whole hour and dont say a word. My best advice is for now just befriend one person in the class and from there it will get better hopefully. Having one person to talk to in class is better than none. If not just keep on going on how you are. Being quiet never killed me or anyone for that matter.

ROFL omg we are one and the same ! Anyways, im exactly like that, thing is im cool and perfectly ok with being like this and I realize thats just the way I am. Not gonna change and you gotta be a fool to say "well then easy, just stop being shy" cause it doesnt work like that.

The only thing I have a problem with is I always look completely uninterested when im in a conversation with another person (well..because I AM. I tend to be VERY picky and selective of who I open up to/get close to/am interested in) and im afraid I insult them

are you shy, or do you just not talk to people? i have no problem with talking to people, i just can't do it. i have nothing to talk about lol. i didn't really have any friends until i was about 16 and a half.

I'm like that as well. But honestly, I don't really mind as much anymore. There's some days where I wish that I could have someone to talk to, and others where I just want to be alone. For me, as long as I'm getting by in life, it's okay.

Don't feel compelled to change your personality.
#19
I used to be exactly like you... shy and timid and all that. My suggestion is to make yourself not care what people think. Believe it or not I did that through music; I'm pretty sure it was Hendrix who taught me that you shouldn't care what other people think. That and dope, smoke lots of dope (not kidding, it really makes you more relaxed even when you're not high)

I don't really talk to people. I just run out of **** to say. Or have nothing to say to begin with.

I respect people who does little talking, they are the thinkers and intellectuals. I think you're a smart person. So don't tell yourself that shyness is a weakness (it is somewhat but it's also good). Just try to talk, make sensible intelligent comments during conversations.

Obviously not, since you're here. You just haven't found the people you feel comfortable around. Which is completely understandable, considering how awful everybody is now a days. It's hard to find someone who's actually them self, and not like the next prep or emo kid that walks by.

Don't worry about it. I did the exact same thing when I was your age. It'll pass soon.

#31
I can be the same way, or i can be the exact reverse, what has worked for me so far is having a buddy around, a lil' weed every now and then, and what kicked the shy outta me is making myself into a Jacka$$ and giving this excuse for a town hell. Seriously, pretend your Steve-O get some buddies together go out and do some stunts / pranks ect. and see if you dont improve. Remind yourself that as far as all of humanity knows we live ONCE.

I'm kind of shy, and I'm not a "little bitch". It's okay to be shy; you seem like the kind of guy with no shame, which is terrible, because you've probably sucked off a goat or something and have yet to regret it.

next time you have one those thoughts that you don't know whether you should say it outloud or not, choose to say it outloud(say it with confidence though as if you don't care whether they think what you said was completely retarded or not)
