Anyway, earlier on today I went bowling, and then drove over to subway for dinner. The problem being, and in fact, the point of this thread; I am far too shy, and I don't like it.
I can only really speak confidently to my family, my lovely Amanda, the few EC'ers I have spoken to on the phone, and to a lesser degree, my so called real life friends. Everyone else, everywhere, I have alot of trouble talking to. I find it difficult to express my thoughts in real life, usually I'm best at it online, such as now... Although I have no trouble expressing my feelings to Amanda over the phone, or whatever, I have a lot of difficulty ordering a pizza, or getting a sub from subway, or going in for my league bowling, or whatever..
Heh. I'm so much more comfortable talking on IRC, or expressing my thoughts on the forums with my friends here... (Though I certainly wouldn't mind talking to the people here IRL.)
Why do I have so much trouble with people? I'm too shy, and I don't like it.

(before people's jaws start dropping, yes, I am shy - just because I deal in pr0n doesn't mean I am _not_ shy )
Lately though, I've just stopped caring about it. If I make a mistake and make a fool of myself, I'll laugh, and get the employee to laugh too (If I am dealing with an employee). Chances are, the dude behind the counter could use a laugh. Customers are boring, usually.
Mr Mort had this to say about the Spice Girls:
Like MadCat said, I'm mostly scared of making an ass out of myself in public.
Crowds are bad, m'kay.
I echo this part of the post.
But I'm a fruit, so if there's people I know around... I don't care what everyone else thinks. =p
I used to be incredibly shy, now I am not so much. Looking back I realise that I would have enjoyed those years much more if I had been more outgoing.
Now that I'm in high school I find myself being a bit more shy than I thought I was.

If it's just my friends and me, no shyness there either really; considering I've known most of em for at least 10 years.
Throw me out in a crowd though... and watch the chaos ensue. I hate crowds; utterly utterly despise them. What I hate most though is total strangers trying to start a conversation with you. I hate that. I don't know you, that implies that I don't want to discuss your newborn dog. No. I don't.
So, usually, instead of being labeled shy, I'm labeled arrogant because I terminate the conversation or plain out ignore your ass.
At least when I lived in the USA I could pretend I didn't speak english and mumble some dutch and that usually did the trick. Now being back over here, it sucks.
*ends rant* too late to type. must sleep. yes. bye.
Kekvit Irae had this to say about Pirotess:
[QB]I'm a guy.. really I am.[QB]
Yeah, I prolly crossed a line there.. I'll apologize when sober.
Rude and funny.
OH MY GOD, HE POSTED ADVICE BUT JUST BECAUSE IT'S HIM I'M GOING TO FLAME AND ACT LIKE AN ASS BECAUSE I'M SO FUNNY.
Either kill the flames and get back to the advice or lock the thread.
