  1. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Not just dating, but friends too. With dating relationships they don't last for me, my SA just becomes this problem that we can't cope w/ and then we end up not dating anymore/breaking up. Same with friends, it ends because they (and me) don't know how to deal with my SA. Does this happen to...

  3. Introductions and Welcomes
    Hello everyone, I have only just found this website, and it has intrigued me. Some of the discussions have struck a chord somewhat and any help/like-minded people would be much appreciated! I am a 22 year old guy and have always had certain social 'deficiencies' (for want of a better word)...
  4. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I just had a long lecture with my grandma about me not having a lot of friends. She kept telling me that I am not living life to the fullest and if I were living in a larger city/town that I would have more friends and a boyfriend. She talked about it as if my life sucks because I dont have a...
  5. Coping With Social Anxiety
    I'm almost finished with my first year at college but I'm still not sure if I have made any progress with my SA. I still feel overly self-conscience and worry about the same old things. I try to tell myself that I have a great, supportive family and plenty of friends, but I still find myself...

  8. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Howdy! I wanna hear about parties or going out in a group of friends / people that you've done recently. Or even not so recently. What did you do, how did you know the people, what was tough for you, and what did you enjoy about it? It's been like a secret dream of mine to be invited to...
  9. Coping With Social Anxiety
    Lately, I have become fairly close to one of my friends at school. We talk every day at school and have lots of similar interests, and I think he honestly enjoys being around me. I have done several things with him outside of school and they've generally gone well. I told him about my SA a few...
  10. Coping With Social Anxiety
    When you try to develope relationships of any form with people does it seem to end up in them ignoring you? I think my SA tends to come off as me being "weird", "whiney" or "needy"...does that happen with anybody else?

  12. Positive Thinking and Goal Setting
    Hello, I read a lot of threads about people who are sad about not being able to interact with people they are romantically/sexually interested in. Especially since tomorrow is the awful "holiday" called Valentine's Day. But when I was lurking at another board (extroverted likely), I see plenty...
