IS this a basic degree of shyness, even, if severe, of social anxiety disorder ? Otherwise, some of us are just less sociable than others, less likely to enjoy the compant of groups of other people, rather than individuals. Are there specific reasons why his family might not accept you ? ( other than perhaps them feeling puzzled that you seem uneasy about meeting them ? ) Best work with a CBT counsellor to enhance your self-esteem and self-confidence, and your comfort in groups --- then there may be little more that is needed

Thank you very much for your responce, The reaso i feel they might not accept me is maybe they think i am a cold person or i think i am better, or something, but the fact is i take a bit more time to wam up to people i have just met. I just dont know what to talk about with them...

Where can i get old of a CBT Councellor?
