    I can talk to people over text all day long.

    But in person and sometimes over the phone. I make things awkward for many people. I want friends but I don't know how to make them. I want to find love but I don't know where to start. I can't talk to people. I can't make the first move. I'm a mess.

    I always feel shy and awkward around people.

    I can tell myself is an introvert person. Rather than going out meeting people, i prefer stay in my house and spend time alone. I am an anti-social person. I like observing people but don't want to involve with them. Even people that i know, when i rarely or haven't met them for...
