I have a friend, or potential friend I should say, that is extremely talkative and outgoing...she knows a lot of people and is pretty much texting on her phone 24/7. I find this quite intimidating because I am the opposite of that. I'm just wondering if I would get along very well with her and like I'm wondering if she would think I suck because I don't have that many friends and don't have as many cool stories to tell or whatever. I feel like she might make fun of me or whatever. Am I just being paranoid? Should I make an effort with this person?

ONLY if this potential friend doesn't brag about what they have and what they do.

I have a good friend that is outgoing and texting all the time. So there are some people that can be nice despite the extreme socialising!

I this person brags, forget about it. Really bad for you, because they will go on about how great their life is, and it will make you feel bad about yourself.

Some of my good friends are kind of like this with being very social. If she has a good and friendly personality then you should get along fine with each other.

Sometimes we are the balance of people like that. Some people are so social, they need a little SA in their lives to level them out. That's the way things are for my girlfriend and me. Don't be paranoid. If she's going to make a big deal out of how you've lived your life, she's probably too petty to be your friend in the first place. If it comes up why you haven't tried to get friends, just tell the truth.

Give it a chance, I have people like this in my life and most of them are really skillful in making others feel comfortable, there's also less chance for those awkward silences to creep up ;)
