I Still Don'T Like Thinking Of TitlesI guess compared to some people here, my social anxiety is relatively mild. I can deal with people in an academic or professional setting, when I have to. I'm a full-time student atm, so I can cope pretty well. As soon as the setting turns personal, however, I turn into a mess. I start shivering, get light-headed, I usually can't meet anyone's eyes, and I start obsessing about everything that could go wrong and what the other person thinks of me.
Social anxiety has affected my life. I've only had a couple "friends" who were more like acquaintances. I've never had a girlfriend, never been on a date, and I've never even kissed anyone. Most of the time I stay at home.
