Something that you say which means when you have had an unpleasant experience you are much more careful to avoid similar experiences in the future

When something or someone has hurt you once, you tend to avoid that thing or person. Jill: Let\'s go ride the roller coaster. Jane: No, thanks. I got really sick on one of those onceonce bitten, twice shy. I once sent in money for something I saw advertised in the back of a magazine, but the merchandise was of such poor quality I was sorry I\'d bought it. I\'ll never buy anything that way again; once bitten, twice shy.

It means that once bitten by a snake, you will be scary at the sight of a rope :))

You can tell me bit fearless and shameless in this regard .........but again , if I tell , I\'m never scared , that means , I\'m never taking risk or chances. I\'m scared of being alone , scared of being ignored , scared of being forgotten..........but I ensure that liberty of my shamelessness must not degenerate into license...........it then either may turn into dictatorship and / or perversion.:)))).....otherwise always being scared or shameful is a mark of inferiority complex ........ it is told shyness is one of the best ornament for girls but never be twice shy , otherwise you may lose the opportunity :))
