    a person that takes away your shyness/ anxiety

    there is one person that, whenever I was around her, made my shyness disappear. I think it was because she was so loud and happy and bouncy that it rubbed off on me and i found myself not afraid to stand out a little...or even a lot. when I was around her I could be loud or silly or bouncy myself.

    Is there anyone that does this to you?

    Yes, I have a few people who have never seen me really shy. On the flip side there are a few people who I can never ever relax around. Sometimes, I actually like these people I can't talk to. I just somehow know that for one reason or another they aren't going to like me no matter what I do and I give up.

    Sometimes its a personality clash. Sometimes I'm intimidated by the person. Sometimes I think the person is a bit of a bully and overbearing.

    Sometimes I truly enjoy being all alone. This weekend so far I have had too much going on and I want to be all alone and people tend to find this strange.

    I've had a few friends like that. They are mainly outgoing and personable people so it's easy to be myself around them.

    Outgoing people who don't push me to talk are generally the best friends to have.

    My therapist and my coworker. They are also people that know a lot more about me than others. My SA gets in the way of building relationships and trusting others.

    Yes indeed. People who aren't very competitive (interpersonally) tend to relax me. With them I feel like I can fumble through a conversation without my fumbling becoming the focus of things. Which is why I usually end up with a best friend and /or girlfriend with SA.
