Advice Anyone?

Sun, Jan 13, 2013 at 6:26 AM

I need a lot of advice, well mainly just 2 things.
1, There is a guy I REALLY like him and I'm too shy to talk to him mainly cuz there is this kid who told him bad stuff about me so he wouldnt like me. :( What a jerk, rite? Well, I'm not sure how to tslk to him. I'm so shy around him. I've already tried notes and that was a waste of time. I tried to friend him on Facebook, but he never excepted it even though I have seen he has been on. And he doesn't have a cell. What do I do?
2, I have a lot of songs I write and I would LOVE to perform and be famous like Taylor , but once again I'm too shy. How do I gain my courage to perform?
Thanks everyone
IN LOVE!!!!

    If you like you're own music, there is no need to be shy, Always remember you make music for yourself on the first place not for the audience.
    Everyone I know goes away in the end
    So you could have it all, my empire of durt
    I would let you down
    I would make you hurt

    Aww. Thanks. I've never thought of it that way. I think my main problem is that I am too critical of myself and always listen to other people too much.

    IN LOVE!!!!

    1. I would try talking to him and telling him the rumors about you were fake so he wouldn't like you. If things end up going well ask him to hang out sometime either as friends or on a date.
    2.I get shy sometimes too but if this is something you really want you have to overcome it. Anywhere you can perform, sign up! Get your music out there, let people know you exist!


    If you need any more advice PM me :)

    just try and talk to him and when he sees that your not like you were described then he will give you a chance. even though its hard to talk to boys im sure youve got the courage somewhere to do it you just need to believe in yourself and know that what was said about you isnt true and if even after he finds that out and he kinda "disses" you then hes not worth it.

    Taylor Swift is my idol and if i ever met her my life would be complete!

    1. try to gain some courage, talk to some of your good and close friends about your problems and they might help u to meet him and talk to him. tell him that all the stuffs were rumors and its all false. try to become friends first and then you try telling him about your love.
    2. its a same problem with me, but one day i gain all my courage i can, prayed to God took my guitar and played 5 songs of taylor in front of a huge crowd!
    gain that courage in you!!!!

    1. Let the dust settle. It's not good to be the one chasing the guy. If you want to make yourself look desirable, make yourself hard to get. Stop pestering him just to talk.
    Quit trying to talk to him and try and get over him. Easier said than done, I know, but it will help. Stop stalking his Facebook/Twitter/etc, that helps a lot. Focus on becoming a pleasant but aloof person with an element of... mystery about you? That'll keep him (and other boys!) wondering :)
    2. The only way you can get rid of your nerves is getting up on stage time and time again to perform.

    I'd also say that the kindest crowd you're going to find anywhere are the Swifties on TC. If you haven't already done so, maybe records some of your music and share it on here. That may help you to at least get started. If people do have critiques of it, they'll be nice in giving those, and willing to try to help.
