Young adult dude, aside from one long relationship where I got cheated on, only been with a handful of other girls, nothing sticking.
I had a horrendous social experience in HS. Nervous to the point of actual panic attacks. Never invited to anything, the usual sob story.
I just had to take photos at a school dance with a mix of college kids and about passed out. Sweating, nervous, and just super self-conscious.
I've read books, made progress, relapsed. Just sick of it and on the verge of suicide since I can't seem to get better.
I hate being awkward in these big social situations. I wish I could go dance and goof off but the shitty part is when you FINALLY work up the nerve to branch out you look stupid because you're not confident about it.
