I used to be really shy! But then I became a cheerleader and my coach just like yelled at me for not talking /: but then I guess that helped me get over my shyness so now Im not shy! So I would just try to get involved in groups or sports or something. :)
Practice speaking to people even though it's uncomfortable. There are formal discussion groups if you want to practice with strangers. Also, if it's public speaking that bothers you, there are groups like Toast Masters to help you get over that.
Are you kidding me? With that smile, how can you be shy? I guess you have to practice speaking to people one on one and in group. I am also shy, so am taking speech class in college so I can stop being labeled as "the quiet guy over there".
Girl, you're gorgeous! Don't be shy! People would love to see that gorgeous smile more often! Just take "risks" and talk to people you normally wouldn't talk to. Just say "hey" in the hallway or something like that ^.^
