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.

A person, normally in high school, who knows/sees everything that goes on around them, but doesn't say a word about them. They go unnoticed as if they don't belong. Yet if you were to talk to them, you could tell them every single thing and they would not judge you, not one bit.
He's a wallflower. You see things, you keep quiet about them. And you understand.

Perennial plant native to southern Europe, bearing fragrant yellow and orange flowers. The name is derived from the fact that the plant, when naturalized to a region, is often found growing out of the nooks and crannies in an old wall, or a cliff. The natural tendency for this plant to separate itself from the other denizens of a formal garden, and grow in isolated locations, doubtless led to the use of the term "wallflower" to describe an anti-social, or shy individual, who lingers in the background, against the wall, as it were, at social occasions.
The heady fragrance of wallflowers growing on the embankment wafted up to me.

A wallflower: The odd person at a social event/party who stands to the side, fades into the background, as they are too shy to ask someone to dance or no one wants to dance with them; This isn't generally based on the person being appealing in a attractive level.

Though when someone looks through the throng of moving bodies and goes over to this ,presumably, oddity of a person and gets to them they discover they're the most interesting person they have ever met.

A person who usually goes along unnoticed and doesn't talk much. On contrary to popular belief they don't hear and know everything (some hear and know less than usual) though some do. They are usually considered loners but are actually mostly shy or introverts. Wallflowers are also usually sincere and kind-hearted people who are misunderstood, and tend to be genuinely interesting once they open up and talk to you, though you'll probably need to talk to them first.
Random jock: Dude you know Lucas? Such a wallflower, he doesn't talk to anyone, what a loser.
Guy who talks to Lucas: You're a serious dick dude, and believe it or not, Lucas is the only one who doesn't think that, he said "I'm sure there's a reason he acts like that".
Random jock: Seriously? I fell kind of bad now...
