I don't wear shorts in the hot weather, I always wear long pants and jeans all summer long. I'm not overweight and have nice legs, I just don't want to show them, because I will feel kind of naked and like in my underwear. My friends are always like OMG It's so hot out, Y R You wearing pants. All of my girlfriend wear short shorts everyday all summer long. Even my Mother wears short shorts all summer long too. She is always
nagging me to start wearing shorts. Last summer I started to feel kinda of weird because I'm just about the only female
wearing pants in the summer. Soon it will start getting hot out again.

Well wear what you want, like others have said.
But maybe you have a nasty little hangup about short shorts? "Like in my underwear" so instead, how about longer shorts, board shorts, so on? Or skirts? (skirts are even worse for you, right?)
Your refusal to wear cooler clothing in hot weather is coming from somewhere inside you.
You say you have nice legs, but you also say you "don't want to show them" so something is up there. Maybe you just don't like to expose yourself at all? Again, that's your prerogative, but it might be a sign that your insecure or stressed out about something in your self image.
You say "I will feel kind of naked" when in fact you are NOT naked in shorts, so I'm thinking you have a mental hangup about your body somewhere in your little pysche. There's more to it than "I just don't wear shorts" because only YOU know the answer to "Why not?"
Another clue: "I don't understand why my friends & mom like wearing short shorts." See? It goes far beyond you thinking shorts are fine but not for you. You think there's something wrong with OTHER people wearing shorts as well. So you got a hang up, Jen. Maybe even beyond being "Shy" as your name suggests because regardless of your legs, you should NOT care what your friends like to wear. Right?
So something to think about. But wear what you want while thinking.1
