Just be confident. I understand, because I was once shy.

I think its funny how people are shy. I think its cute.
I crave to be heard so im not shy. But ive never been shy.
I think it has to do with people's awareness and perception of themselves along with confidence.

Well, I was much more shy when I was younger, but now I'm an old 32 year old, and I'm less shy, because I no longer care if people will dislike me. It comes along with having a bunch of other baggage and other priorities. You wake up one day and realize you dgaf, and voila! shyness solved! But good luck with it, it's no big deal, your shyness will likely seem extremely cute, when you eventually talk to him.

Breaking the habit and getting out more. Partying is fun!

Image ......every one around you is a 12 year old .. .. or Imagine them naked .... shy is the feeling caused by the fear to be ashamed , or made fun of .... if you imagine everyone naked ... or image anyone a12-year old.... you'll feel there is no reason for you to be ashamed , Or at least you won't be scared....thus you can't possibly feel shy....

I'm quite the shy person myself, although I'm never shy around my closest friends, or else they wouldn't be my closest friends at all. Indeed going out more, being more social will help, but It's a problem for people who are shy, like me, to even do that, without a little guidance. I know for sure that I won't be able to do it alone, so I need someone to help me out at first. Then, as time goes on, I'll be able to do it myself without help. Like they say, practice makes perfect.

I've seen so many good answers and examples posted so far. I definitely agree that talking about something that you both relate to would help more. Like talking about school, and what classes you take and so on. It works for me. College students usually have a lot in common when it comes to their classes and procrastination. I'm sure it's like that in high school too, even though I was extremely shy in high school, and really awkward. Also, talking about something that interests you, like someone else stated earlier. That's also a good one, it helps break the ice. Basically I agree with what @wwe said.

@TheAnimeGamer I'm sort of in the same situation as you, and I agree, I can be a wreck around the girl I like. I get too embarrassed quickly too.

@BeelzebubII That would most likely, definitely, make me very uncomfortable. That may work for some people, but not me. Imagining people naked would just make me too uncomfortable. Especially imagining that they are 12 years old. One or the other would make me feel the same. Both would just be a taboo warhead detonating inside my mind. But, that method works for my friend, so i can understand how it helps other people.

@ninjagirls This sure was a long post. My longest post online in about a year or more than that. Now, I can sort of relate to that situation you were in with the Japanese guy. I was in a similar situation, in a supermarket, with this cute Asian girl (she was also Japanese), with the free food samples as well. I went over a lot and kept eating the food just to be close to her. I just couldn't bring up the courage to speak with her. But then I just, somehow, came up with the idea to talk about food, and then her country, and just picked up from there. It's difficult to get started, but once you do, it will go smoothly. It turns out she was much older than me (at the time), and had a boyfriend already, but at least I got to speak with her, and managed to conquer my timidness for that moment. If only I was always like this, like i was then. Anyway, good luck with that guy. Just give it a shot.

I think I got a little carried away with this post..... Oh well!

I'm not a shy person so I don't have to deal with it. I do have a friend who is incredibly shy and mostly I just cheer her on when she's going to talk in front of the class and reassure her that it'll be fine. She's actually good at talking in front of people. If only she could realize it herself.

Wow what a great answer thanks and I agree with some of the other post answers on here as well like what @wwe said and some others That cool in away we both like a Japanese person and both work at food place giving out free samples aww thats to bad she had a bf but at lest you got to talk with her so at lest you now know she has a bf Thats going to be my luck as well that he has a gf that one of the reasons for my shyness is b/c he works at mall and the thought that he might have a gf is making me shy to talk with him but yeah thanks I will try at lest to talk to him and start like how you did with food That should help with the shyness and if he does have a gf well guess time to find someone else
