    I know this feeling, meeting new friends is one of my biggest difficulties. It's a little easier to do this if you are in a comfortable environment, like with people you already know.

    I feel this on another level, and Butterfly has a very strong point, talking to people is much easier if you are with people you have already established a strong relationship with as you can find things in common easier through those mutual friends

    I'll be your friend :)

    Thanks for the kind words. It sucks feeling like I’m an extrovert and want to be around people and make more friends but my anxiety always stops me. I also have issues trusting people, I feel like everyone’s going to betray me or not be sincere. 😥

    Trust can be hard, but it gets easier the more you practice.

    I feel you. I always get nervous when I know I’m about to speak to new people. As part of my job I sometimes lecture to small classes. My pco gave me bisoprolol to take before any lecture

    Join clubs based on something that you enjoy. That allows you to already have at least one thing in common to talk about.
