  • Yes I am shy. When I do get the nerve to strike up a conversation and end up with a few polite murmurs, I tend to go back into my shell.

  • I wasn't and then I was and now I'm breaking out of it - everytime I say that I'm shy to someone who knew me growing up, I get the side-eye like "What? You? No you're not." But a lot of things happened and I became shy and nervous. I don't even want to say "shy". I think I became self-conscious. Anyway, I'm working towards going back to the REAL me.

    It does affect my social encounters - I have more friends now.

    But not dating, as I am married. LOL.

  • Yes I'm shy, maybe thats why I lack friends. But I'm married so I'm not to worried about dating.

  • I'm not shy but I don't like social situations. I sometimes don't know what to say. I am better one on one.
