Wall flower


Shy. Sometimes refers to a female who is pretty but useless. Unnoticed due to introversion. As we may not notice a flower hanging on a wall, pretty but unseen, so a person can also be hidden in public due to their shyness.

“At the party, she stood in the corner and didn’t talk to anyone, she was like a wall flower.”
