Re: I need help over coming shyness...
I have/had the exact same problem. Growing up, i only had one or two friends, and NONE of them were girls, even in middle school I had a huge problem talking to girls. I'd get really shy, my stomach would drop, and i'd forget what i wanted to say, or i'd say something that sounded really stupid.
I realized what i was doing, and my older sister told me she used to be the same way and just overcame it. I kinda think about it everytime i feel nervous about asking a girl out or something, and I tell myself, "Ok, you HAVE to do it by the end of today. You dont have a choice" or maybe its tomorro, or the end of the week.
If you can figure out when you get shy, like, in the middle of it you realize "Ok, i'm doing it again" take deep breaths, calm down, say whatever comes to mind, dont think twice about what you want to say, just say it. If you TRY to act confident, it will at least show a little bit. I know this is harder than it sounds, I've been there and even when theres a girl that i really really wanna go out with, I still get really shy and feel like everything I say is stupid, Its something that takes time. I keep telling myself that I'll get over it next year when i go to college, new place, new start.
Sorry if I didnt help much, its hard to get over being shy, and its also hard to tell someone how to get over it.
