What makes you shy, and what are some helpful hins to get things going in a social situation?

I'm not shy per se. But I am fairly quiet and reserved mostly because I just can't think of things to say when around other people. If there's already talk going, I can usually join in, but I have trouble formulating things to say on a whim.

Not sure how to change how I am. I am on some pretty strong anti-psychotic medications, and I think they effect parts of the brain that are active in social settings.

Are you shy OP?

Hmm, being embarrassed makes my button up real damn quick. But I think that's normal for anyone. So in order to break the spotlight I usually shift the attention to something that's either awesome, someone or thing else that's not me and entirely unrelated to my embarrassed moment or just bury the hatchet and go the full 9 yards to make whatever is embarrassing look pale in comparison to what I just did now. Outside of that, I'm not shy about much of anything at all.

I am a walking contradiction.

I am very friendly and bubbly and love to meet/talk to people...But my outside demeanor is so painfully shy, that I come across to people as being "stuck up", "icy"...Which I am anything but! Problem is, I am VERY shy on the outside, when all I want to do is get to know you and talk/be friends! It takes a great deal of courage for me even to walk into a room full of people, or let's say, onto a full train or bus.

But once I can overcome my painful outside shyness, I can't stop talking XD

I'm definitely more of an introverted person than an extrovert. However, I don't know if I'll go as far and say I'm shy. It's just that all my comments are in my head. The difference is that I just don't say it out loud. Heh ^_^

Talk about the guy who dances the weirdest. Or ask if everyone has a nice buzz on. Or even better, say nothing but approach and let them say something to you first, assuming you know these people. Usually if you go into a party, it's going to be full of strangers dancing. So there's not much need to communicate verbally.

If you are shy, how do you get someones attention at a gathering?

I panic a bit on the inside, but let the person come up. I start off as painfully shy (like stated before) but then once we get to talking I'm fine! Just give yourself time to warmup.
