Maybe since you have social anxiety you're just afraid to make friends. I got social anxiety too so I can relate to that. What would you do with a friend? What if they're weird or annoying? What if they're nowhere near my age? What if I don't like them? I guess there could be lots of fears. That's why I was thinking of a meetup group so there's more people. It might be less awkward that way, or maybe not. But then what would a group of people who have social anxiety do? Who knows. Boy, it just seem impossible to make friends when you have social anxiety. I thought it would be better to make friends with other people who have social anxiety too so you can relate to each other, but it doesn't seem any easier.
