Useful advice. Some of the points are applicable here too.

Shi: Somehow I never imagined that any of this would be applicable in your culture. I learn something new from you all the time. :-)

Excellent post and advice, Deb. I particularly liked the advice about shy girls trying to make friends with a new group. There are a lot of adults who could learn a lot from that one!

Dennis: Shy girls like me need all the advice we can get!
