11 Shy Girls Reveal What Being Shy Is Actually Like

If you were to ask anyone who kind of knows me to describe me, they’d probably use a word like “shy” or “quiet” or “reserved” (or all three)!

While it’s true that I definitely am on the quieter side, I wasn’t always like this–when I was five I found out that my birth sign was Virgo and that Virgos were supposed to be shy. Thus, I thought, Well, I guess it’s time for me to stop speaking now. And I did, for a few days–but that is a story for another time. The point is, ever since then, I’ve been very shy.

A lot of you guys are too (though it’s unclear if your shyness also stems from a strange self-fulfilling prophecy you inflicted upon yourself) and have been talking about it in the comments over the last couple of weeks. Here are 11 comments from our readers on what life is really like for shy girls:
