    I am shy and have social anxiety,

    so not a fun guy to be around. People who know me think that I can be fun or their friend, but they are wrong. People who talk to me just waste their time. No one has any reason to try to make me laugh or attempt to pass the time with me rather than someone else. So, I either...
