A shady person is someone who does not keep it real; a person who hides out; a person who keeps things to themselves.

I'm never there when I'm supposed to be but I'm always on time. You can say I'm a creeper. I don't like to be in the same place for too long. I like to keep my hood up. I have an excuse for everything. You find it hard to trust me. I have multiple personalities. I text people on my phone that aren't friends of yours. I have few friends but many acquaintances. I'm easy going. I'm pretty sneaky. I take lots of short cuts when traveling. I'll come and go like wind. I like to listen, and give you a blank stare while you talk. You'll never know what I'm thinking. I don't take very much seriously. I'll say anything to get your trust. I probably won't abuse it but if i have to i won't hesitate. I'll gossip with you and about you when your not around. Sure I'm a backstabber... I don't snitch, but i have dirt on everyone. I'm perfectly fine with myself. I'm independent. I hate being called out. Some say I'm shy but I'm just shady...
