I am taking a biology class, and we have to work in a group during lab. All week I have been very nervous about not finding someone to work with. So I told the one guy I knew that we should be in the same group. Well he picked two very outgoing and loud people to work with. So all class all three of them were laughing, and joking...and I just sat there like the boring blob I am.
I usually like outgoing people, but am overwhelmed by these people. To make it worse they already think I am weird.
Has anyone been in a situation like this?

Lots of times in highschool. Sad times in highschool for me. Hmmm, not much you can do there except get through it, I guess

Oh my, I'm sorry to hear that. I've been on that same boat allot of times. I had the good fortune of spending my last classes of school with people who turned out to become my best friends. Well, during school time that is.. afterward they didn't want to hang out anymore.

But yeah, it sucks. I'm sorry you had to go through that. :(

Many, many times. The worst moments were when the teacher would find a group for the "leftovers". It would just be me and like one other kid and that was basically like saying "Yep, these are the losers of the class!". LOL!

That was me freshman year... And sophomore year... I'm a Junior now. But I don't doubt this will stop happening to me.

Mhm. This one time, during Freshman year somehow I got paired up with this girl who was very loud and whatnot. My SA was even worse back then, so it was pretty awkward. She was, you know, the usual. Obnoxious, loud, all of that.. -.-

outgoing people can be cool one on one but when 2+ outgoing people are bouncing their energy off of each other and i'm expected to somehow jump in it's too much.

that's how I feel.
maybe since I have to spend 3 hours a week with them, I will become more comfortable.
It takes me several months to warm up to people though

I don't see how you got I wanted to be like everybody else. I want to be comfortable enough to be myself. Anxiety masks my personality.

Ugh. I'm 50/50 with warming up to people. Sometimes it takes me barely a week or two. Other times it's just impossible for me not to be quiet/shy around people.

Wow, well that sounds like 90% of all my high school classes. In most of my classes when the teacher said s/he would be assigning groups I'd go "Awww" with everyone else but deep down be going "YES."

LOL @ your justification.



But to stay on topic, yes I have been in this situation before, just as everyone in this thread has. I guess you can take solace in the fact that you aren't alone. Although I won't know how much good that'll do.

In high school I would always get stuck with people like that. They would joke and talk during class and I was stuck doing all the work. I didn't really mind because I didn't want them to screw up my grade. I hate working in groups.

you should just try to get out of it somehow and avoid it all together since your not going to have any progress while feeling uncomforable and its just too stupid that these kinda things are going to ruin your future
