Re U sure you're not Just gay or something

No, far be it from me.
The fact that i haven't been in any relationship, is just down to fact that i dont see any need for it for now, distraction is what i call it, secondly cause of my space.
I don't believe that i need someone to be complete although i also hate to admit the fact that the first girl i loved broke my heart contributed to it also.

Hello guys
Came across this thread few mins ago and I'm glad am not alone.
At a point in my life, I felt I was weird. Different and weird.
I prefer staying indoors all through instead of associating. I don't attend parties or social gathering. I hate crowds. I know am an introvert but the sad part about everything is am also shy. Extremely shy. I can't even start up a conversation with the opposite sex

you are an ambivert: a person who has a balance of extrovert and introvert features in their personality.

Although i do not believe it's actually possible to strike a balance between both personality. Most often one trait is dominant while the other is either suppressed or recessive

so, at 12:10am dater church service today. Someone looked at me and told me that I needed to go out more often.

That I am always pressing my phone or in front of my laptop by myself.

Maybe she is right
.

I don't have any friends (seriously though) that I would go out with or people to be free with.

I'm just too rigid.

I need to make new friends
@bold Not maybe, your friend was absolutely right smiley

introverts are so misunderstood. I've been dubbed slow cause I don't socialize by someone and I was like OK whatever. I've learned to say f**k it to whatever these people think. I only open up to people I connect with.

Pls i need serious help starting a conversation and ending it is a big issued i get scared or shy when trying to communicate and this sometime gets my friend pissed off... What should i do?


If and when you see someone into you, shock or hit them with that fact from the get go.... Something like, you know there is something about me you need to know.....i am not too good with expressing myself like an average person, I eat my words most time, though I am doing my best to get better..... Or something more positive or better constructive than that...when you let it out from the get go, the person involved will know there is work to be done and will be in his or her toes to keep you in the bright side ..... That if you really care and want to keep the friendship cos sometimes your mouth is better locked than open. Show you care with your actions and many will overlook your shortcoming



I call myself the boldest shy man alive.... Will dig out one of my write up and I tagged why shall I shy





SHYNESS
SHYNESS
A self defeat from within
Comes over you and makes you loose control.
Someone smiles at you
Probably because of your good look
The shyness in you mistakes it for a jest!
Because times without number you have failed
To make yourself believe the fact that you are good looking
All because the shyness inside of you
Only has room for weak self confidence
Causing you to often times taunt yourself
With unpleasant comments about your look
Walking down the street,
Someone stares at you, like they always do.
Taking aback by your natural beauty
But deep inside of you,
Another conflict of the mind has just started
Mistaken the stare for another minus
Though you never knew what your admirer sees
But for your weak self confidence
Coupled with your poor hygiene
You give-in to shyness
And for yourself you won another bad day
Shyness and low self esteem will rule world
When you still see human as mighty
Worshipping their image in your heart

Forgetting you will never get better than your idol
What kills you in facing a crowd?
When the crowd is made of human
And like you too,
They have their individual weaknesses
Looking frankly at you when you stand before them
Only makes you their teacher; and
Them your students expecting to learn something from you
Pray your self composition into place and
Deliver your mouth from its locking keys and
With a relaxed mind,
Give the best presentation ever heard
Before you know it,
You’ve done what most onlookers
Will fast before attempting to fail
Because the “in thing” which is self confidence
Has long been taken away by shyness

LAUGH
Laugh
It is a pity that many do not know,
What laugh is up to
When you laugh,
You look so good and
With a laugh on your face
You are your handsome best
A laugh can be captivating
With a laugh,
Lovely friends keep coming your way
A laugh brings lovely suitors
Medical research also have it that
People who laughs,
Have longer life span than those who do not
So why won’t you put a lovely smile on your face
It does not cost much to laugh
Do not because of your present situation
Wear a worried and unfriendly look because
Everybody simply has an issue
Remember that laugh brings peace to a troubled mind
It brings favour from where you never expected it
Laugh wipes away sorrow,
Cleanse the mind and brings reassurance
When you are happy,
Put a glowing smile on and
When you are sad
Always remember to put a lovely smile on your face
With a laugh,
You will get the world at your feet
