Anyway - Theres only one way to get past being shy, and thats practice. The more you talk to girls, and the more you get used to inserting your foot into your mouth, the less shy you are.
And dont think just cos you dont talk much girls with think your ignorant. Most girls hate a loud mouth, especially those who really dont know when to shutup. They'd prefer a good listener. Thats not to say you sit there and demostrate your vocabulary consists of the 3 words "yeah, arr, and uha". You should still talk about the same things you would any of your mates (keep it tasteful though).
Last thing to remember. Dont look at every chick you talk to as an opportunity. If your out to impress every girl you find, your bound to screw up. Just see her as someone esle to talk to, a mate, nothing more. Wait till you know a girl before thinking different.
