I knew a guy from high school who was painfully shy that he was practically scared of his own shadow. Used to ask him out for drinks when we went to sixth-form too (because I could use him as a chick-magnet, this guy had good looks). Girls were all over him, but he never spoke. He was more or less suffering from social anxiety.

Years down the line, didn't see him since as I went off to university and being in a job for 6 years, I met him in the local. Turns out he's a Lieutenant in RN. Such a top bloke. He has a great sense of humour (not changed from high school). I went bright red and asked him why he went in and he said he was interested. It was like speaking to someone completely different. I knew this guy had the lowest of self-esteem possible. He used to talk himself down in everything, I felt sorry for the guy.

Anyways, just need to ask, can the Navy really transform someone that frighten of himself into a dashing young man with self-confidence that could knock Paul Mckenna off his feet? He must of pulled hundreds of women with that uniform!

I got up to things Mummy would definitely not approved of if I'd tried the same at home, believe it's called "character building" and the OP's oppo couldn't have been that shy if he passed AIB. Maybe he was just quiet because he's won the role of duty friend again!

The short answer to the question is yes.From Spring Chicken to hairy-arsed Shitehawk in about twelve months or quicker depending on amount of effort expended.

I was shy, spotty and wouldn't say boo to a baby goose when I joined up.
Then the LHOM on my first ever ship shoved a tube of toothpaste up my arse.
I saw the light - joined Das Boots and went completely insane.

Did you get the Colgate "ring of confidence"?

Edited to state I am now actively seeking to capture as many pigeons as I can and have them transported to Liverpool.
I will then observe if distraction slows up post response.
