    I Should Be Having Fun, But I Feel Lost

    I don't know how to break out of this habit of being anti-social. I just moved to the US. I left behind my friends and boyfriend and I'm here alone. I'm looking for work, but it's tough. This weekend I came to New York to stay with a couple of relatives but when they leave for...

    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...

    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 really dont care about meeting new people that much but sometimes I do want to talk to people and Im just to shy to do it. Iv never even been able to get a girlfriend because Im to shy to talk to one.

    Anti Social

    I really need to stop being anti social. I hate being so shy around people and if someone asks me to hang out, I’ll either say no or make up a phony excuse. I haven’t made any friends at my work and even if I tried, I’m afraid to ask them to hang out with me. First of all...
