I am extremely shy, So's my husband and kids. I have really bad social anxiety and actually stooped working partially for that reason (I worked retail). I just feel like I'm going to hyperventilate or just panic when having to talk to people I don't know. I feel I don't relate to most people or have anything in common so conversations with people end up just being me listening and not contributing anything.

Introversion is your crutch and the internet is your false sense of comfort. You'll live a life unfulfilled unless you learn to say fuck it and take the plunge. For those of you who experience anxiety on a clinical level, don't expect your problems to be resolved by sitting in your bedroom and joking about your social awkwardness on tumblr all day.

If it's to a person I have a crush on, then yes, I'm painfully shy!! Even walking pass them, I have this weird plan where I have to "perfect" my walk just walking past my crush -_- . If my crush looks at me I have to look away, I can't look at him straight in the face or else my heart will start racing and my face will twitch and burn hot!!!!! And then he'll notice and think I'm weird.

If I am meeting someone new, I do tend to get nervous but I try not to show it on my face. I try to do a poker face. Also, I'm a quiet person so it doesn't help.. However, this does not work if the new person I'm meeting is attractive -_- its even worse. I probably would just say short answers or a few words because I'm too nervous to talk.

Yes. Yesterday, I saw a girl with an Attack on Titian jacket so I figured she liked anime or manga. I just ignored it because I was too shy to start up a conversation. Stuff like that happens ALL the time.

I used to be as shy as you throughout my childhood and most of high school, but I find having a girlfriend, a few important friends, or just really good family is the way to overcome it. Telling jokes, making people laugh, it's a great way. It's more a self-esteem issue than a shyness.
I had a friend who was NEVER shy around woman, and he basically taught me to never be scared, be yourself, if they don't like you they don't deserve your friendship. That's all

I know that feel when you know that some else gets that feel that you feel.

idk about other people, but i'm super extreme shy but only with talking to people first, otherwise i'm fine (i can't for the life of me talk to office ladies or teachers for some reason...) i'm also too shy to leave my room when other people are home, even if i'm starving D:

I guess I am. You know I'm shy when my cheeks are red (which is 85% of the time), AND I HATE IT

I was really shy with some people when I was 5. The school got a new teacher and I was too shy to say hello. Every lunchtime I'd go and stare at her. She'd always be doing some art workshops which I'd love to do but I was too shy to even talk to her so I never asked to join.
