I really hate that! Just because I am quiet when I meet new people doesn't mean I am stuck up! I'm shy for goodness sake! Gulliable must be witten all over me! I don't try to act that way and don't want to be that why! I wish people think and would get to know me before they judge me! I'm a really nice person! Really I am!

i get that a bit too. although my shyness passed years ago i still have what people think is a posh accent and i am obviously a bit of a smartar$e now and then. generally though people realise i am ok after about 2 minutes. shyness is not good and thinking back to when i had it i can realise what you are feeling and perhaps why you sometimes feel so insecure.

I know how you feel as alot of people used to think the same about me yet i am very common.People used to think i had lots of money as we are buying our own house and that we paid for a loft conversion.The only reason we had the work done to our house was because we could not afford to move and we had to buy a house as the council had no houses.

I know where your coming from. Several years after I got out of high school I heard that some people thought I was stuck up. I was far from it. I was just quiet around the kids I didn't hang out with. Guess I had a fear of opening up to them and then them turning on me. I'm still pretty quiet around people I don't know, but I've learned to open up more. The people that take a little time to get to know you will find out that your not stuck up, if they just give you a chance. It may help to try to force yourself to start the conversation with new people you meet. Asking a few questions helps you come across more friendly and less stand-offish.

I use to come off as a certain B word to people a lot when I was younger until one day Ifinally asked someone what it was. They said I never smiled and just seemed like I thought I was better than everyone. I swear to you I started smiling the next day and it put me in a better mood, more people noticed and it make them happier and I got more friends. Then I began keeping track of more posture which use to be horrible I use to slouch a lot. I stopped doing that and before I knew it everyone told me they thought I was kind and smart. It's amazin how little things like that can change people perception of you!

I have this problem to,I know why people think this of me though also. I am not a constant smiler ,so they think I am miserable or nasty. I am not that way at all.At least this is what people who ,I do let into my world have to say being shocked at how nice I am. This in itself is sort of a insult to think ,I look unapproachable and nasty.But as the saying goes first impressions are ever lasting. But I feel you should never judge a book by its cover ,you can miss out on some very good things. Chalk it up to their loss ! You need to be confident within yourself not to let such petty unworthy people make you feel different about yourself. We could also pose the question of what scares them, about us that they have it in there mind what type of person we are.
