    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?

    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.
