look up any word, like rule of three:
 
11.
Someone who could be called shy, someone who doesn't feel comfortable around other people. They don't like to have attention on them because it makes them uncomfortable. They like to stay off to the side at parties or dances. They have trouble talking to people because they don't know what to say. Talking to new people is not their strongest point, and standing up in front of people can make them feel awful. They may act fake around their friends to hide their real quiet personality, but to everyone else, they're invisible. Just because they're "antisocial" doesn't mean they're snobby. They just would rather watch then be involved. They know things about people that you would never know unless you watched as closely as them. You could tell anything to a wallflower and they'd never tell anyone because they try to avoid talking to people. They can be the best people, if you take the time to crack their thick shell. The opposite sex doesn't seem to consider them very much, but if you got to know them, they'd be great. They are usually attracted to other wallflowers because they are like eachother. Wallflowers are beautiful.

2.
someone, usually in high school, who sees everything, knows everything, but does not say a word. they are not loners. they are introvertive, meaning they are shy and have a social disease. they cannot handle having someone pay attention to them even though they crave it as much as everyone else. wallflowers are just phased in, and faded into the backround.

a person who see's the world for what it really is, all the beauty and the ugly.
someone who knows life is only for the one who is not afraid to die and that joy is only for him who does not fear to be alone.
these are the most amazing people you will ever meet and you will never, not even if you try, forgett them.

A person, usually in high school, who sees everything and knows everything that's going on but doesnt say a word. They arent loners, they are shy and don't choose to be in the mix of things.
A person nobody pays attention to, and fades into the background, but are really genuine and interesting people if you take the time to get to know them.

6.
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 school that blends in- no one really knows them, but they always seem to be there, in the background.

Teacher- "Pass that paper to Jane."
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."

Someone who isn't necessarily shy, but never really tells you a lot about themselves. They observe almost everything and listen to everything you have to say without criticizing or judging. These people are often the most sincere, kind, and wonderfully interesting people, yet fail to be attractive to the opposite sex for some reason.
I thought that she was mean and stand-offish at first, but then I got to know her and found out that she's really a somewhat shy, beautiful soul. She's a bit of a wallflower if you ask me.
