shy smile

This is embarrassing for me, so I just wondered if anybody else has problems with this & if they managed to get around it.

Almost every time somebody has conversation with me- if the person is looking at me for too long, too close to me, or just that I've been put on the spot, asked a question, I suddenly cannot speak. It could be as harmless as how are you? Or, what do you think about this? instead of being able to answer like normal people, I get all shy & in an aid to conceal that I am getting shy, I pull this uncontrollable smile. I just can't help it.

It's only when I look away, or they look away that I am able to straighten myself out and continue speaking. Usually once I get shy and this happens, I am not able to continue the conversation for much longer at all or I just have to look at the floor and not at the person. Most of the time I have to do this so to try and avoid this embarrassing thing from happening.

I've always been shy from a kid but it did start to get better as I got into my teens. This shyness that I am experiencing now has within the last couple years been getting worse. I thought as you got older, it was to get better. I'm into my 20s now & it's really destroying my social life!

Re: shy smile

That's how I am!! When someone has a conversation with me, it doesn't last long.. just a few sec. That's why I am having a hard finding a job as a CNA. I do bad at interviews.
I don't think I will ever get hired unless I e-mail them and explain that I am shy, but I can do the job etc.. I might start e-mailing . Typing and writing are very convenient for us shy people. ;\
