"Nick, social anxiety disorder is highly unpleasant, but actually not unusual. And it generally responds excellently to treatment, with medication or counselling or CBT, preferably both. So see a shrink for assessment and advice on treatment, and you could soon find a whole new world opening up for you, rather enjoyably. "

Nick I have the same problem and have been thinking of meeting someone like you for ages, would it be cool if we tried to fight this thing together?? I'm sure we'd feel better together rather than this awful feeling of loneliness we tend to get. O fsick of being alone at home, j\how about you?? Let's go to the shopping malls you'd like to go to.
This is such a cool opportunity for both of us!! Way cool!!
