Glad that somewhat helped. Also, don't count your cards out yet. There's a chance. Just take a shot.

Shyness, eh. I'm sorry to say I don't have problems with this but what I HAVE found out that helps shy people, is to go out, find something you're good at/passionate about and then work on perfecting it. It makes you feel good about yourself, and helps with boosting self esteem.

Also practice being assertive? It may be hard but try bossing your parents/friends around once in awhile. Lol idk

Edit: Being shy around new people/someone you like is perfectly common imo.

I do a whole lot of drugs in order to deal with my shyness, it makes me a social butterfly.

I can be pretty shy.

If Im in a situation where I cant be shy, I suck it up, and approach the people I need to talk to. Which happens often, because in my line of work, Im constantly meeting new people and I have to do networking in order to be successful. So I guess Im not so shy anymore

The best way to get over it: baptism by fire, trial and error, just go do it.

I'm a naturally shy person. But I got over that pretty quickly, because in business you can't be shy. The main thing that gets a lot of shy people I think is internal dialogue. I used to freak myself out a lot by overthinking situations too much. The best way I've found to remedy that is to shut off all of those thoughts as quickly as possible and just dive into the situation before you have a chance to talk yourself out of it. It's going to be pretty awkward at first, but if you keep practicing it gets better. After a while, you'll become more comfortable with situations like those and handle them a lot better. As with many improvements, it just takes patience, practice, and consistency.

I like your point well...actually I'm just like your case haha

I'm a loud crazy person who just happens to be shy when I first meet someone.

It's hard >.<" I try to be friendly but I come off as looking depressed or angry o__0" ..or so says my friends when they first met me.

I can't help being shy at a first encounter; I only show my loud crazy side when I'm comfortable the other person's personality.

<- probably the look you'll see when you first meet me XD

Take risks ,simple, but it works.

Throw yourself out there and ask him what time he gets off of work or something!

i'm not shy about talking to a guy, just plain shy about new people in my life in general. thou the only people i snap at is my family because they drive me crazy. i would love to see what is out there but the only thing i know how to talk about is anime in general or kingdom hearts or one of my tv shows like teen wolf, supernatural or vampire diaries.

I'm still shy. I always get all quiet and nervous. I'm basically a Chihuahua. Once I know the person though I turn into an awkward.. dorky thing.

I just try to joke. If somebody laughs, I get more confident. Like when I have to give a presentation in a class, just make a joke and loosen up.
