1.what are you looking or hoping for ? a spouse a friend a lover?
Friends mainly. Have a spouse/lover. :3

2. why are you so shy?
I don't really know. I just don't feel like if I talk to people I might be bothering them.

3. where would you prefer to meet them?
Meet whom? The friends in question one? Anywhere. The grocery store, the gym, the internet...doesn't matter.

4. who would you like to approach who?
It really doesn't matter.

5. when was the last time you let shyness hold you back?
Whenever the last time I had to call someone was.

6. how crippling is your shyness?
Not too bad...unless it comes to calling people. Then I seize up.
1 Friends, I don't expect to meet a "lover".
2. When I was a little kid I was the most annoying little prick ever, and people kept telling me to shut up until I did. Now I'm not worred about people hating me, I just feel really awkward.
3. I don't really care where I meet people.
4. I'm not likely to approach others but if it works out in the end either way is good.
5. Everyday.
6. I'm only shy if I'm talking to someone I don't know just to be social. Like I can talk to a cashier no problem but I can't make small talk with the guy whose sitting next to me in class.
1. Friends
2. I don't know, it actually really annoys me...probably because I think that people won't like me or they won't like what I have to say, so I rather just keep my mouth shut..
3. Friends? In my favorite cafe, or in school or in library...there's not really many options, 'couse I don't go out a lot. Never, actually. At all.
4. The other person would have to approach me...I would feel really weird, just go talking to someone that I don't know...but it doesn't bother me if that someone approaches me..
5. It holds me back every stinking day.
6. Well, I'm shy around people I don't know...around family and my only friend (thank god for her) I'm really talkative and I always express my opinion.. I aslo don't like calling strange people on the phone, like to make a doctor's appointment or something like that.. I don't even like to shop, because I have this stupid thing in my mind that makes me think that the sale's lady is judging me (like if I go into the market and buy a bar of chocolat I imagine that the people there are like thinking in their minds: why is she buying chocolat? isn't she fat enough allready?).. Yeah so...that sort of things. I'm crazy. Crazy shy.
1. Friends
2. I don't know, I have been shy as long as I remember. In kindergarten my sister was the carrier for al important notes and papers (and she wasn't in my class). My parents tought that was the best way to make sure the teacher would really. I has to do with people judging me and not wanting to disturb, annoy them.
3. It doen't really matter.
4. Someone has to approach me. I'm not going to start a conversation, because the problem is that I never know what to say. If the other person brings on a topic of conversation I can talk for hours.
5. Everyday
6. I just loose a lot of precious time, because it takes me at least 10 minutes everytime to muster up the courage I need to ask a question to someone.
Calling is usually the worst. The combination of having to talk someone and not seeing their face makes it difficult.
1. friends mostly
2. my voice and speech impediment. i used to get made fun of because i couldn't say words like girl, swirl, twirl, whirl (pretty much anything ending rl) and i didn't being a target of my classmates. when i get really tired, stressed or nervous my speech impediment just comes back in full force
3. friends? school, the library, in the park
4. doesn't really matter
5. i had to give a presentation on victor hugo for a class about Paris. i got so nervous and there were so many words with rl that i said that my throat was too sore to speak .
6. it was a lot worse when i little, i used to hide behind chairs and counters and things like that. now i just hide in crowds if i don't want to be noticed.
1.what are you looking or hoping for ? a spouse a friend a lover?
well i'm cool with just having my four friends and well who couldn't use some love

2. why are you so shy
i guess it's just how i was raised. myfamily doesn't talk about the past or stuff like that and we're all really closed off even from each other so i just kindof learned that you with hold things from people

3. where would you prefer to meet them?
childhood. if you have a best friend who knows everything about they'd make the best life long companion

4. who would you like to approach who?
them me because i don't like to let them know how i feel

5. when was th last time you let shyness hold you back?
um everyday

6. how crippling is your shyness?
i don't think it's crippling but others say that i need to get out more. leave the books and get know people, yeah no

1.what are you looking or hoping for ? a spouse a friend a lover?

Friends, haha. 

2. why are you so shy
Well, that's the million-dollar question, isn't it? Search me.  
3. where would you prefer to meet them?
Prefer to meet whom? Confusing question.
4. who would you like to approach who?
Haha, what? Whom are we talking about? I'm lost.
Either way, I'm shy, so I wouldn't approach anyone. 
5. when was th last time you let shyness hold you back?
Every time I go out and there's someone I want to talk to, but don't.
Or even at school; there are people I want to make friends with, but I'm too shy to approach them. 
6. how crippling is your shyness?
 
Hm, it's not so bad. I'm trying to overcome it.

1. Friends.

2. I'm not really sure. I've always been shy, ever since I was little. I was picked on when I was younger, so that's probably why it never went away. I figure if I shut shut up, people will leave me alone.

3. Anywhere, I suppose. It doesn't really matter.

4.The other person approach me. I would never approach the other person. I wouldn't know what to say.

5. Yesterday. I was trying to tell a story, but I couldn't make my voice heard, so eventually I just shut up. That happens a lot. So, like, every day.

6. Not terribly crippling. When I was younger, I wouldn't talk to anyone I didn't know well, not even if they talked to me. I wouldn't even like asking my teachers questions. But, I've pretty much gotten over the latter and, although I still don't start conversation, I will talk to people. It's just incredibly awkward when I do. My social skills suck.

1) a girlfriend of any kind.

2) because i lack confidence.

3) anywhere, i don't think its that important.

4) a girl.

5) today, at school, i didnt ask a girl i like out. this happens every day.

6) bad enough that i've never asked a girl out before and as a result, never had a girlfriend.

1.what are you looking or hoping for ? a spouse a friend a lover?

Friends and a lover, I guess.

2. why are you so shy
I think it's a product of the way I grew up. I don't blame it on my parents but I was raised much more protectively than a lot of people I know were and I think it's made me more introverted.
3. where would you prefer to meet them?
I don't really have a lot of preference. The library would be cool. Since I read a lot that would cause one to assume that they read as well which would be kinda pretty important.
4. who would you like to approach who?
Probably them to approach me. I've never approached someone, like ever. And I would feel like an idiot doing so.
5. when was the last time you let shyness hold you back?
All the time, though I can't think of a specific occasion.
6. how crippling is your shyness?
Well I don't stay in the house all day for fear of going outside but it does keep me from talking to people or doing new things for fear of looking stupid.

1. Both, perhaps a girlfriend more.

2. I only relay talk facts not opinions (Probably because people state opinions as facts), this makes conversations dry and causes me to be unapproachable. I pick up on this, realise I'm bad at talking, get defeatist about the whole thing so become shy.

3. Does the internet count? If not ether somewhere quite in a place covered in the things I like, or IRL but by a computer so youtube can back me up.

4. Them, otherwise I'll probably never say exactly what I think (I certainly wont say anything to a potential girlfriends)

5. Couple days ago when I (again) talked myself out of writing a blog post on the ning.

6. You should probably make up your own mind on this one, but my view is quite a bit crippling on-line and massively crippling in real life.

1.what are you looking or hoping for ? a spouse a friend a lover?
Anything really. A boyfriend or a best friend would be nice.

2. why are you so shy
I've no self-confidence, to be honest. And it's just easier to let other people do the talking, especially in groups. I can just never think of things to say.
3. where would you prefer to meet them?
Anywhere...college, when I'm out, a shop.
4. who would you like to approach who?
I can't approach people unless I'm drunk, so I think I'd prefer them to approach me. Also I would  be able to speak much easier because then I'd think they wanted to hear what I have to say.
5. when was th last time you let shyness hold you back?
I'm not sure. The last "big" time was when I didn't want to go back into a place where I put my CV into to ask if the job was still there. 
6. how crippling is your shyness?
I hope I'm better than I used to be. It's crippling enough in that I find it almost impossible to make new friends and I've never had a boyfriend. I'm even quiet around my closest friends.
