I'm not a fun person to be around

I'm in high school and have very few friends and even those are not really great friends. I feel like nobody wants to talk to me and I just create this invisible barrier around me that keeps everyone away from me.

The problem is that I don't know how to be fun or interesting or charistamic. I overthink, but I also don't know what to say or ask to keep the conversation. I can't connect with most people and I usually don't talk to strangers (even if I've seen them a couple of times in school), because I'm afraid I will say something wrong.

How could I help myself to not feal nervous when talking to new people and how could I make an impression that I'm not boring. If this is even possible.

I find it hardest to be fun when I can't be myself, which is pretty much all the time... But still I try my best to not be boring as hell and try to joke around if it's appropriate time for that, or just look like I'm not sad...

Even shy people can be sassy sometimes...
I'll put drunk raccoon in my signature as well, because I CAN...

Me neither because I don't have any hobbies or interests really so I'm boring.

This is what frustrates me. I've actually got a great sense of humour and can be myself around my friends.

I think if my work colleagues and others could see what I'm like when I'm with my friends they'd be shocked, but instead they probably think I have no sense of humour or personality.
