I mean, here, it's pretty fucking obvious we're all interested in U2 in some way, so it's much easier to get involved than with a bunch of people offline that I can't discern anything about.
Truth. I have that very same problem.

Just remember not to take the 2pm train - unless you want to get swamped with high school kids mobbing the trains!

I was at a seminar recently in which the speaker was talking about narcissism being the actual cause of 'shyness'. I can't remember the guys name, but here's a quick read.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Here, I make a point of never riding the northbound trams on my route between 3pm and 3:30 just due to all the schoolkids. It doesn't help that one of the schools on the route seems to have all of the most obnoxious students ever who throw things around the tram and generally irritate everyone else. At least the other schools' students just stand around and noisily talk amongst themselves.

I doubt it. Bad social experiences can be a major cause of shyness.

Yeah, its the same here: One school has all the obnoxious ones. Once they get you have to brace yourself for what is coming. Sometimes when I get stuck on the train with those kids, I feel so old. I look at them and I think, did I really act this way when I was their age? Did I really talk that loud?

How many disorders do you have? And, yes, if only this guy would have consulted Pearl before embarking on his research......

Besides the fact that he's stupid, a douche bag, and, worst of all, American? God only knows.

I have nothing constructive to add. The link speaks for itself.

Yeah, I've had those same thoughts. I've only been out of high school for 3.5 years, but it seems like a different world altogether. Though some of the overheard conversations make me think "ha, yeah, I remember those ..."
