Someone who chooses to observe, instead of experience life.They
know a lot about people, what they
are truthfully like, how they
actually act when they
think no one is paying attention.
Since people have little interest in wallflowers, they
usually know a lot about people. The good
and the bad.
Wallflowers are not mean, or impolite. They
are usually pleasant, and respectful- just
shy and/or introverted.
Nontheless, people tend to use the word "wallflower" negatively. What a shame.
The shy girl, or guy in high
blends in- no one really knows them, but they
to be there, in the background.
Teacher- "Pass that paper
Student- "Who's Jane?"
Teacher- "The girl that
's been sitting two seats behind you all year. She's almost in all your classes."
Student thinks to himself- "It's not my fault she's a wallflower."
