Default I talked to this girl on Skype!

I met her on Plentyoffish and we been chatting and texting for week or two. Today she asked me to Skype and I didn't know what to do or say and just froze. The idiot that I am I actually typed "..." as a response to her message. I did mention about my social anxiety before so I think she might have understood if I wasn't ok with it, but I also knew I had to do it because I wanted to progress further with her than just typing words. I did get on Skype with her and it wasn't too bad. We were on it for a few hours until she went to bed. I think it went ok, but not great. I hope I didn't scare her off though and this be the last time I talk to her. I really do like her.

Congrats! Skyping is something I'd love to do in the future but that terrifies me right now. So major props for being able to do that.

Thanks This was just one of several small steps I've been making to help expose myself to more situations that I normally would be too anxious to do.

Yeah it was a few hours but I felt there were moments of silence and awkwardness. I don't know, but she is still talking to me somewhat so I guess I haven't completely scared her off

Whenever I'm on cam I just feel like a freak show for some reason. I don't like looking at myself or necessary like others looking at me, lol. I also don't like the sound of my voice. You know what I don't even know why I even have a cam, this is probably the most use it got since getting it over a year ago.

Anyways last night I went on cam with a sas member. We didn't use voice, but chatted instead. I did open up to her much quickly than usual so I was more relaxed and outgoing. I didn't even realize I was on cam for over 5 hours!

Grats man. I'd hate the idea of that too really, don't know why but i'd feel much more comfortable actually being face to face with someone than using cameras.

Awesome that you went through with it

grats man. talking is the absolute worse for me. i can get on cam with alomost no axniety now but talkin on it scares the bejesus out of me. the possiblity of stuttering and not making sense is my biggest fear about talking. in real life, i talk pretty fine and confidently despiste some axiety but idk what it is about cam that makes the anticipatory anxiety double or triple. grats again and keep at it. oh and good luck with the chick. let us know if any great things or bad (*knocks on wood* lol) things happen.

Congrats, man!

I would be too scared to get on skype, so this is a triumph in my book.

This is incredible.

I'm pretty sure if a girl is willing to talk to you for hours on Skype she is definitely interested.

Awesome work!
