Unapproachable

Sometimes I seriously wonder if I seem unapproachable. I am talkative and outgoing with strangers, don't get me wrong, however, when a cute guy goes walking by, I am like a turtle in its shell. I get so nervous!

Today, I was at one of my favorite sandwich shops. I get up to leave and get caught off-guard by catching eyes with a really nice-looking guy. He was looking at me and I immediately glanced in another direction. I told myself, "Well, great, he probably thinks you are one of those snobby women that thinks she's too good to talk." But, at the time, I am thinking, "Oh, there's no way he would like me." So, I dart in typical situations like that. Why can I not be more outgoing with guys I don't know?

Ugh! I need to seriously work on being more approachable.

I am the same way - it does make it tough to meet people. I often wonder how many people I would have met if it weren't for my shy exterior. I wish I could be more help but clearly I have the same problem!

It happens to the best of us. Just remember he's looking at you for a reason...he probably thinks your a total hottie.

I'm the same way. Clay is just as shy as me and we had friends introduce us. That kind of broke the ice, but I've never been able to just walk up to a cute guy.

If you want to play the letter game you can have the letter F.

I can be the same way, although it's not from being nervous. I find that I try to act like I'm not that interested just in case he isn't really interested and end up looking crabby when I don't mean to be.
