How can i get over being so shy?Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
there really isnt a way in my personal opinion. Im shy with certain girls i'm guessing it depends on your own confidence but from what i heard from my friends just be yourself and act like you don't care. Pretend your the *censor* or something and just find a confortable situation like " hey i always see you on this bus where you heading or w.e"

Paxil

It's an anti-depressant like prozac but it does wonders for shyness.

In two months you'l be james bond.

get off the computer and go out and live; be around people you feel good about and start gaining confidence; you dont gain confidence behind a computer screen; the more you do the better you will feel; dont be afraid to fail either;

so many parents are raising social misfits because they do every tiny thing for them. Get out and live.

Go into stores or any public place and force yourself to speak to people. The only rule is to be polite. Do it until it feels natural. If people don't answer you, keep going until someone does.

Unfortunately the only way to get over shyness is bull your way though get out talk to people even if it's just striking up a conversation with a cashier about the weather or etc.. just build up your conversation skills and self confidence. Build yourself up as well your capable of more than what you think you just got to build yourself up. Or you could just dive in head first and do something that you can't be shy for I was very shy and still am a little but I got over a lot of it when a buddy of mine talked me into being in a play and this was only 2-3 years ago so I was roughly your age then it helped a lot.
