A wallflower is a person who is introverted and is separate from the crowd, usually at a party. Not particularly shy but are reserved when surrounded by a lot of people and big personalities. Not really knowing what to say so can come across as socially awkward. This person will blend in and become almost invisible to others. They choose to stand back rather than getting involved as they prefer to observe. They have no desire to be the centre of attention.

Generally they are quite happy in themselves and accept being different. Wallflowers can be creative and wise.

A wall may be ordinary and unnoticeable but a flower is associated with beauty and can be rare, you won't truly learn until you get close.
He's a wallflower. You see things. You keep quiet about them. And you understand.

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 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...

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.

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."
