Just thinking really...
When I first meet someone I can usually pull off a very confident, playful air, even add the odd tease here and there. I find interaction becomes more and more difficult the better I get to know them, particularly if I like them, not just in a sexual context, but in general. It is as if I panic and lose all composure when I have respect for someone new.
If interactions with a new person make me realise that they are fun/genuine/valuable in some way important to me, particularly if they are funny and genuine, I begin to panic slightly about my impression on them and as a result tend to lose the ability to be witty and respond on the spot, sometimes even stutter slightly and go really quiet, which is actually personally really irritating, because the more I want to get close to someone, the quieter I tend to become around them, pretty much purely out of genuine concern for the impression I am giving.
Is this possibly type related or is it just some weird thing I do? If I'm not alone in this, how in the hell does one overcome it?
