I haven't seen a therapist or anything to confirm that I have social anxiety but I about 200% sure that I do.

I really do want to be more social but I find it so uncomfortable and draining to be around people that I avoid social situations. I often find myself depressed and lonely but no matter what I do I just have an extremely difficult time making friends. When I am around people I become sort of a mute :um I sit there and don't say a word. I don't even move I just stare at my cell phone until it's time to go. It's really awkward and I'm sure it makes me look rude. My anxiety is taking a toll on me and I don't know what to do.

Does anyone else have these issues? How do you cope?

I don't have any coping advice I'm afraid but I can definitely relate to this.

When I'm with people I know well and trust I can be talkative and funny, but when it comings to new people it's like someone's gagged me, I can't even think of anything to say most of the time or if I do it seems stupid and embarrassing.

This is exactly how I feel. I really want to socialise, have fun and make good friends but as soon as it actually comes to meeting people I tense up and end up being lost for what to say, just coming across as awkward. My social anxiety has ruined my life and I can't even get a job because of it. I think I am going to see a therapist or psychiatrist to get help.

If you're a hot female theres still a good chance that some prince charming is going to swoop down and change your life for the better.

Could be worse
