    Why do I get so nervous and shy around some people, but not others??

    I just don't get it.

    I recently just moved house. The people I had been living with for 2 years were nice but I never felt comfortable when talking to them. I've been in my new house for 4 days and I'm scared of it happening again. I just want to be able to forget about my insecurities and mingle with the people I live with. But I always feel like an outsider.

    Now, when I work, I get along with my colleagues like a house on fire and I feel like I can be myself. Why is it different when I return home?

    Do you tend to warm to people over time? Sometimes you just have to get to know people. Here's a question that always helps me:

    If you were to (insert action here) what do you think the worst thing is that could happen?
    When someone judges you, it says more about them than it does about you.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I get like this too. THere are certain people I am automatically drawn too, and I feel comfortable around. Then there are others I feel intimidated and shy with. A lot of the times it`s very beautiful girls around my age that intomidate me the most, but hot guys make me feel that way too.
