How do I get over my shyness?

Really your boyfriend broke up with you because you were shy, oh dear. Well i honestly think that you should not change anything about yourself for anyone. Yes it's your choice if you want to be shy or not and both are ok, if you are happy with it. In fact one of my best friends from school was a girl who is incredibly shy but she does not want to change herself for anyone. I think its awesome that you were a little shy around him. I was so shy the first few times i spoke to my wife when we dated. You certainly deserve way better than him. He broke up with you because you were shy, count your lucky stars it ended now rather than later. I think you can overcome shyness by just meeting people and talking more... don't feel afraid to just go up to people and talk to them. and don't worry, just be a little confident and you'll do just fine :)

I'm shy when I'm around new people. My ex's family didn't like me because they felt like I was too quiet. I don't think people shouldn't like you because you're different from them. It took me about a year and a half to open up completely to my ex's family. Sometimes it just takes time. Some people hit it off really fast and some people take time to build relationships. I guess next time I will try to be a little less shy, but I think it's smart to take your time with getting to know people to see if they should be close to you or not.
