Before this year, I was basically what could be translated to a "class mouse." Never talked. So shy from girls. Had no experience or confidence. Cared about no one but myself. Could not make eye contact at ALL.
But, I think I can honestly say I've made a progress. I don't let a girl just hug me; I hug them back, even harder. Hehe :) . I look at them in the eyes and appreciate it. I like when they have a sparkle in them, :) . I don't studder and shrivel up like I used to, whenever someone that I never met talks to me. I actually say good afternoon to strangers now. Or a light wave. There's some really nice people in the world.
However, I am still a little shy lol. Nervous to go to places with friends (guess because my parents would never let me my whole life :o I have no experience really). Still not exactly sure how to start a conversation with an attractive female that I have never met before (it's a tad bit slow at the start. But usually leads to a good friendship). I'm not the type who could just yell hilarious jokes during class like a class clown, unless it's people I already am comfortable with. I don't really have the nerve to pick on someone (besides my brothers lol), because I end up feeling bad, and I start to feel like a douchebag :( . And I am REALLY shy around my crushes, which I think is probably my biggest flaw.. I have a huge crush on a girl. But I'm so shy with her. I've managed sit next to her and we had a talk :) just about random stuff. I don't have the nerve to go up to her when she's around her friends though. Agh. I guess this is another flaw I need to work on. I put effort to staying aware of my actions, because I don't want to be an obnoxiously loud type of person. You know, the douchebaggy type. I respect woman; I really do. But I don't think very attractive and nice females often go for a shy-ish type of guy :/
What about you girls? Do you like shy guys? Or is confidence a must-have?
Please answer. Thanks! :D
