So which are you?


The friends are considered real life only.


Do it from left to right, the left ones are more important than the right ones. So you can forget the one or two on the right, if the left ones are more accurate.



I'd be the last one if I wasn't getting stupid, useless counseling now.

Also "finished" college, meaning they gave me a diploma for something.

None of the above.

I'd be in the no friends category, but all of your choices in that range require limited education. I graduated from college back in 1995.

I have no friends but I do have a man who i'm engaged to - i'm also educated as I did have a life before SA took a hold of me.

I cannae leave the house alone but things are looking up. I can see how it'd be easy for me to get so depressed at my situation but I refuse to do so, that'll just make things ten times worse.

Combination of top 2, plenty of friends, education and soon job but struggle with shyness, parties and confidence.

I'm overcoming my SA (there are more times where I feel outgoing now than when I feel shy), but I still have no friends. I live in a small town where everybody is already really close and it is extremely tough to make friends. Most of the people here are polite to me, but they don't give a crap about becoming friends with me (i.e. I will start talking in a conversation, and they will answer me, and then continue talking like I am not even there. I will say something again, and the process repeats itself.).

It does make me kind of frustrated, but making friends takes time. Right now, I am just focusing on all the people that have been nice to me, instead of the ones who have been kind of rude. I know that I will meet nice people who will accept me for who I am sometime in the future. I'm not going to give up being outgoing and trying to meet new people. Otherwise I might never meet these nice people.

No friends, pretty shy, in college, no job. I can talk to people, and have several acquaintances, but nobody I could call a friend.

- no friends
- extremely shy/SA
- partial college education (going back in September)
- have a job (work from home)
- little to no social life (not counting family, I "socialize" at a rate of about three times a year - former co-workers who invite me out - maybe that'll change come September...)

Although the one "friend" I have, I rarely see or talk to her.
