11 Things Only Shy Girls Understand

You are devastatingly useless around your crush.

If you give up on your dreams of getting an A as soon as you hear that 10 percent of your grade is calculated from a group presentation, you know what it's like to grow up seriously shy.

From being an absolute calamity around your crush, to avoiding the doctors so much you'd rather die than talk about your health issues, these are eleven things you'll understand if you really, really hate being the center of attention.

1. You actively dreaded reading out loud in class.

Rehearsing that one paragraph you had to speak out loud at the end of the chapter actually distracted you from anything else going on in class.

2. You've experienced sleepless nights over group presentations.

Either you've doubled up on your written content, or you've just accepted your average score will drop when the group result comes through. Either way, you'll spend at least four days stressing it before its over.

3. You're a firm believer in doing everything online.

From scheduling hair appointments to booking taxis and ordering pizza, if there's an option to eliminate human contact, you're all for it.

4. Your eye-contact is generally awful.

You have to physically drag your gaze away from the floor, the posters on the walls, and the areas around someone's head before you eventually meet their eyes.

5. You'd rather forfeit any award you've won rather than collect it during an event.

Who needs a best employee award anyway?

6. You are devastatingly useless around your crush.

Either you say the wrong thing, or you don't say anything at all. Either way, it is a disaster.

7. You're constantly paranoid you'll develop hiccups during a meeting.

IMAGINE HOW BAD THIS WOULD BE.

8. You still beg your parents to make your doctors appointments.

That is, if you bother making them at all. Which you probably don't.

9. Your teachers thought you were stupid because you never raised your hand.

The number of times your school report has requested you participate in class more is unreal.

10. You wish you could harness 10 percent of your online personality for real life.

You're just way cooler, funnier, and better when you're not speaking to someone face-to-face.

11. And finally, you could never concentrate in any class where the teacher might randomly call on you.

Which definitely wasn't the intention, we're sure.
