I feel like i should be laughed at every second...i tend to bend my knees when ever i talk to "regular" sized people.I hate it!Once a 15 year old dude asked me out last year!! I was soo sad...i cried right there in front of him, i cried all night because its gonna be like this for ever! Being tall isn't lady like! No guys in my own grade like me! I have guy friends though...But! I cant take this anymore!!!!!!SOME ONE HELP ME!!!!!:'(i FEEL LIKE I SHOULD HATE MYSELF.

I'm actually really short, yet I'm the tallest girl in my class. And I feel like a towering giant because most of my friends are really short, and i sit down when i talk to them

Hey AvatarTLA, the only way to overcome shyness, is to face it. Force yourself to participate in class and talk when you're assigned to groups. Even saying hi to everyone when you enter the classroom will help. Hope this works for ya. Xoxo

Okay, so I dont talk a lot in my classes at all unless Im with my friends (which is hardly ever since a lot of them aren't in my classes!). I do blush a lot when I get called on or when people make comments about me being "too quiet". So, in science today my group members were giving me a hard time about being too quiet and needing to be more social. People do this to me in almost all of my classes. It's getting really annoying! What should I do? Lynae P.
