Dear BeingGirl Experts,

Why am I super-shy around people that I meet personally, but when I talk to someone online I am outgoing?

 

Diana,

Dear Diana,

The truth is that being shy is something a lot of teens share. Practice listening. Listening to learn what other people are interested in can help you begin to feel less shy. This happens as you have more knowledge to share. Join an activity you find interests you. You can meet people who share your interests by doing this. In a group setting you will be working towards a common goal and this can be rewarding. Shyness disappears when there is work to do!

 

If the people you are talking to online are not friends you also see when not online, please understand online acquaintances can be dangerous and may not be real people. These people may not have your best interest at hand. Take care to know someone personally before you spend any time online.

 

Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

I'm super shy, whenever i'm with family and someone comes and says hi, i hide behind the relative thats close to me. When one of my friends friends says hi, i stay quiet, cold, and extremely distant. Before, when i had a crush, whenever he came close by, i turn red and hide behind my friends. I'm so shy, i only have 2 friends. But when someone either insults, annoys, or acts very hostile to me or my friends, i get soooooo angry, that i scare them away before i even do anything. Yeah, i'm really shy =)

Im not just shy, im like one of those super freaks who cant even go outside the house without worried someone beside my family/ friends will talk to me. It really annoys me.
