I am really into this guy but I believe that he's got some sort social anxiety disorder. He's good with it just being us one on one but he talks about how he doesn't go to his neighbors bbq because he doesn't want to embarrass himself and he doesn't know what he would talk to people about. It's like it overwhelms him so he just chooses to stay at home in what he calls "his bubble". He goes out but I never really see him talk to many people and he gets really quiet when there are a lot of people around. He's always worried about doing something to embarrass himself in front of people, including me.
I am the complete opposite. I'm very outgoing and can pretty much talk to anyone. I really like this guy because he is a total sweetheart. Any tips on how I can make this work?

I used to have social anxiety and I think the best thing you can do is accept him how he is. If you start to push him to be more social, he'll probably pull away from you. If it's really a deal breaker, then don't date him. It's a horrible thing to suffer with and it can make you feel really bad about yourself. In my opinion, if you like someone, it means you like everything - flaws and all.0
