On the internet I'm not as shy. It's real life where everything goes downhill. It's kind of funny.

@Gabrielle, Well, I'd sure like to make things any less awkward for you. If we're all trying to decrease world suck, we should try and stick together!

@Jessica, you sounds! :P

@jessica, hi there! nice to meet you

@gabrielle, theres really not much you can do for the awkwardness except practice. some people in public still mistake me for being mute, its only on the ning that i really can be myself. its comforting to know theres a whole community full of madeofawesome people here to support you :)

I'm terribly shy. But I'm trying my best to reach out here, and it feels incredibly awkward.

It takes a lot for me to open up in front of people and a really bad course of friends just recently doesn't help my case much, which is why I tend to be shy around people. I'm just really hesitant and awkward, not only that I'm hard to read so people get frustrated with me often.
I don't have the "normal" teenage life, which a lot of people patronize me for. Just trying to do my best to get through each day as it comes, I suppose.

Hi, all.  I'm not diagnosed but my sister has selective mutism and I think I might as well.  I can't make eye contact with people and I barely say more than 10 words a day unless a family member calls me.

Im realy shy when im meeting new people of my own peer group. I find it very hard to make conversation with strangers so people usually have to speak to me first. The strange thing is that when i am around people I know i am outspoken and always act myself.

Last year I made no friends at the residence in college, thankfully this year the new people where friendlier and made an effort to talk to me, so i have friends this year. :D
