    Smile Is there any other way to say the same thing?

    She is not so much unsociable as bashful.
    (this continues like "Once you get to know her, she is very friendly.")

    I want to say the same thing as above in more explanatory ways.

    Like,
    She actually wants to mix with others, but she is too shy.

    Is there any other way to say the same thing?

    ------Not a Teacher-----

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good morning, Kolooko.

    Maybe something like:

    She is more bashful than unsociable.

    Have a nice day!
