I don't think I have social anxiety disorder, but I do get really nervous in certain situations and I thought maybe someone here could help.

I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, it was the best I could find currently.

I really love people, and talking to people. I didn't realize this until maybe a year ago. Before then I only had one or two friends, but now I have more because I saw how much I love people in general and being around people.

I'm still really shy around people that I don't know well. I get quiet and when I do talk I mumble and mess up what I'm saying, simply because I have no idea what to talk about with them. My mind just goes completely blank, and the more I think about what to say the less I come up with.

I'd love to be able to meet some new people and get more friends, but I don't know what to say or how to get started. I'm about to start taking a painting class, and I'm hoping to meet new people there. How can I talk to them? What should I say?

Any suggestions on how to help think of things to say?
