    Oh, uh.. Sorry.. and thanks, I think? Being shy around my hometown/college makes you immediately disrespected, which I'm fine with. The problem is, anyone who also becomes my friend gains disrespect as well. Friends shouldn't give other friends free disrespect points, should they? That just doesn't sound friendly on my part! Well, if this place is different, then I guess I need to apologize again.. I guess I'm just, well, a bad socializer? Well, uh, thanks again for the reality check!

    I don't see no disrespect here, never have and as far as I know, never will. Everypony is known for it's dependable members, we may not be the biggest but we are up there as one of the best. Feel free to open up a bit more if you wish, there's no need to feel awkward here. We were all new here once, feeling a bit left out, not sure what to do. Heck, I was here a good 2 weeks before I got settled in properly. And let me tell you this - I haven't even thought about leaving this forum.
    I'm sure in good time you will get comfortable here, I can assure it. :)

    You're worrying too much :smile: I'm very bad at socialising too. In fact, when I first joined here, I had no idea how any of this forum stuff worked. You'll soon be able to fit right into the community and it'll be like you've been here for ages.

    So don't be too afraid. We're all friendly. If you need any help, feel free to ask me and some others a few questions.

    Um..I don't think I've seen any disrespect here either.. It's honestly hard to get used to! I'm not that great at opening up and I always feel awkward, so I think I might need more than a couple weeks, heh. It's nice you enjoy it here a lot, I'm kind of enjoying it to.. Hard to get used to, though.. Still, thanks for the reassurance!

    Sorry, I know I worry a lot. Sometimes I worry about worrying too much, and other times I worry about not worrying enough, causing an endless cycle of worry until my brain overloads! Still, thanks for your words of reassurance as well! I guess I'll try loosening up a bit!

    ...Nope, I'll try again later

    I like your style, Ailment. You're funny, I can see why a few people have taken a shine to you already.
    I'm gonna hit the General Chat Thread for a few hours, if you need any assistance, feel free to fire me or anyone for that matter a private message and we will do our best to help you out.
    Welcome to the herd, enjoy your stay! /)

    Um... Careful, I think you might be insulting Fluttershy with those words, heh.

    ...Uh.. Me=funny? People take a shine to me? Sorry, but I think your equation might be a little bit off.. Um.. Enjoy your time in the General Chat Thread (I don't even know where that is yet). And please don't hate me if I do this wrong, but... I think I do this? *(\

    Uh.. I'm pleased to meet you too! And.. um.. I think this thread is my home, and I definitely cannot afford to move.. heh.. Too scared to talk in other threads right now.. But I like this thread, so it's ok. I.. uh.. did have a question, but I somehow forgot it already, so I guess I'll ask later.. Thanks, though!

    No, it is official, you are now resident Fluttershy. :D

    I like you a lot! You remind me of me when I first started internetting. ^^ You have yet to see its wonders and horrors.

    Hopefully you will always have yet to see its horrors...0.0

    But anyways, I think you'll fit in just fine around here. Go on, explore the forums! I'm sure you'll find at least one place you enjoy! (But stay out of the chat, strange things happen in there...)

    There's the Artsy section, for if you like drawing, making videos, music, poetry, writing, etc.
    http://www.everypony.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?6-Carousel-Boutique

    There's the role playing section, for if you like that sort of thing.
    http://www.everypony.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?82-Everypony-Theater

    There's the Show Discussion area, where you can talk about ponies.
    http://www.everypony.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?5-The-Library

    There's the general discussion area, where you can talk about anything (including ponies).
    http://www.everypony.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?10-Sugarcube-Corner

    Hmmmm...

    Oh yes! And there is the blog section, for things that are either personal or don't fit into any other category, or things that it would be awkward to make a new thread for. ^^
    http://www.everypony.com/blogs/blog.php

    I'm sure you already found most of them, but don't be afraid to jump into something! Ask questions! Figure out what's happening there! ^^

    We don't bite! Well, except Sparky...

    If you find it productive, you should try doing what I did on an old forum with a similar blog system - make a blog entry at the end of each day and keep it like a diary of how things went that day. I learned a lot about myself through that :3

    Legion's pretty much handed you a map of the forums. Don't feel rushed, but if you ever feel like venturing into the rest of the site, those links are there.

    Again, take your time to get use to this place.:smile:

    Uh.. Sorry.. but no, no, no, I can't take that title! And uh.. wow... Thanks for the forum information! Going to have to copy that down on Notepad! You and everyone else has been so kind here.. Thanks for that! And uh... Blogs? Forums?... I didn't know there was a difference.. Maybe this thread should have been a blog? And the internet scares me a lot less than meeting people.. That thought just made me shudder. Thanks for all the info though, it will really help me navigate through this site!

    Uh.. but can't others see blogs? So wouldn't they see what I've done that day? Oh, the thought of things like that just makes me worry and shake.. I.. uh.. think I'll have to pass on that idea for now, but I might try it later.. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I.. uh.. think I'll rest here for a while.. I don't even feel like lurking anywhere else at the moment.. But still, thanks for all your help!

    You're doing the right things so far. The blogs are mainly for personal points that require little discussion. The forums are used for things that require discussion (like this introduction thread).

    You doing well so far.

    Oh.. I am? Thanks! I might try a blog entry sometime.. but probably not for a while.. Still, thanks again for the help!

    Uh.. heh.. There are actually a few differences:

    1. Clogged toothpaste means the day is going to be bad, not different

    2. I couldn't possibly drink 2 cups of tea

    3. I definitely only would have purchased one bag of tea.. Don't want to overachieve as much as John!

    4. I send money as gifts, not manuals!

    5. I would not have sat on the park bench.. You are a lot less noticeable to the public sitting behind/in a tree!

    6. I would be too scared to tell a diary about my day.

    That story did amuse me though.. I guess I do kind of sound like that, don't I?

    And this is why I like you.

    Oh, don't forget to read the other chapters! There are 29 of them. xD

    Here's number two:

    http://www.fimfiction.net/story/35463/2

    His adventures include battling a fly, dealing with an OC Alicorn who is constantly trying to romance him (which is quite amusing), dragonsitting spike, and many other horribly exciting things that nopony should have to go through. :3

    Um.. So you like me because I'm a social reject... heh.. Don't hear that too often! Thanks, its been nice speaking with you as well! (I know you didn't mean it like that.. or at least I'm fairly sure!)

    Nothing wrong with being a social reject, as long as you're nice. ^^

    But yeah, you're funny and nice. IMO, no reason anyone shouldn't like you!

    Heh, thanks! Um.. But why am I funny? Is it the way I speak? I guess that's fine by me! You've been kind and helpful, and have shown me the one pony that might lead as exciting of a life as I do! (That was sarcasm. John obviously has the more exciting life) So thanks a lot! And um.. yeah, I will definitely read the other ones.. You managed to get me hooked! Not that I mind.
