What is the best kind of place for someone with social anxiety to live? I've always lived in the suburbs and often wonder what it would be like to live either in a really countrified setting, or in a big city. On the one hand, a small country type town might be an easier place to meet people, but on the other hand, the sheer volume of people in a big city might be better. I'm not sure which. all i know is i'm definitely tired of the suburbs.
