Jtrekkie Posted July 20, 2016 Share Posted July 20, 2016 A little forward I know, but for all of the talk online about making friends with social anxiety, there not much on making friends who have social anxiety. It's almost like no one is really sure there. And that's a shame, became there are tons of awesome (and quirky) people out there who aren't the easiest to get to know. The most obvious thing is to try to let the other person get comfortable around you, but to do that you need to already know them. Not to mention the whole idea is a bit patronizing. You could just keep stopping by to say "hello!", but what if they just want to be left alone now? If you like the person you don't want him to feel even more awkward. It's not easy, but it's funny how contagious the awkwardness can get. It's a little easier on the Internet, though efforts can feel disingenuous. Here simply saying "hey, you're cool and I'd like to get to know you" can start it off, but you still have to find a way to keep things going. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
