PDD-NOS, Social Anxiety and Others
Discussion place for other conditions related to the Autism spectrum such as: PDD-NOS, Social Anxiety/Phobia and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder.
Well I had met someone online last year with a similar hobby as me and today we finally met in person for the first time.
It was difficult for me to talk, but we are both shy it seems. It still went well I think, and I have a new friend now. To be honest, meeting someone you had met only online can already be pretty awkward as it is so I feel like that didn't help the situation.
I'm always afraid that my social anxiety and awkwardness will scare people away, as it has before. But fingers crossed I make it through until things become more comfortable!
What do you guys do to overcome social anxiety situations and try to make new friends?
