I am 17 years old and I have never been in a relationship and I will probably not be pursuing one anytime soon. But, here is my problem….. My mom and dad both have told me a couple of times that I tend to come off ย kind of up-tight or like I am above people and that I could be driving off a potential relationship or friendship. I am not like that though, on the contrary good friends have said things like they feel better when I am there and that the atmosphere is lighter and happier when I am around. I am just shy around strangers and people I don’t know but, when I am with friends or family I am happy and relaxed and myself…… ย I don’t know what to do, I don’t want to drive people and especially not my future husband away. My parents have said that I am a sweet, wonderful girl but that unless people get to know me they might not realize that. What do I do? ๐Ÿ™

    I know how you feel laudie96!! I’d like to find answers to this too! I’m SUPER shy around some guys for some reason, and I don’t want to come off as rude or anything!!

    I can also be very shy when I first meet people… but I don’t think that is a problem. You said that people do find out that you are a nice girl when they get to know you… well a future husband should get to know you anyways ๐Ÿ™‚ I just want to say that I was in a youth group a couple of years ago where all the girls seemed pretty go-to and cool and stylish and good looking but there was one girl who was pretty shy and just wore really average clothes… but she was married first of all those girls! Just because you are able to present yourself in a better way does not mean that you get a guy faster! I still try to work on being more friendly but I wouldn’t worry about it too much. If your personality means being shy in the beginning, that’s fine. I guess I’d just pray about it … hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚
