    Yes, I live up to my avatar.


    Although I also prefer doing stuff on my own, which enhances my isolation.

    Oh shit...I answered "shy in specific instances" but I really don't think I'm ever shy.

    Maybe at the gym because I sweat a LOT and I'm a little self-conscious about that.

    Huh, considering everyone else's answers, maybe I should change mine to 'never shy'. I'm shy only in specific situations, romantic ones to be exact. I'm usually very talkative and comfortable with social situations, but when it comes to dating, flirting etc. I'm just all over the place

    My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
    It stalks and hunts me through mirrors

    it's more crippling anxiety in new and mostly unfamilar situations, than it is shyness
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Until recently, I used to NOT think that shyness went hand-in-hand with introversion but in thinking about it, I think they do go together. Mostly because introverts tend to be self-centered and introspective, and it's because of those traits that shyness develops.

    That said, not all introverts are shy, just as not all extroverts are outgoing. It's just a generalization.

    I can be a bit shy, maybe not so much now. But still it is there.

    Shy is sexy.

    I can be very shy, self-conscious and quite quiet (! ) when I meet people for the first time. But I think it also depends on whether there're things to say or not. If the conversations interest me, I could put aside my shyness and talk endlessly. If not, I'd rather retreat to my mind.
