I have some social anxiety, that sometimes impacts my social life. I sometimes cannot even speak to women, because of it.
One way to overcome it, would be that if I had a girlfriend... However, women don't like anxious men.
Can you help? Please be honest, and take this seriously... This is NOT a 'troll', or a trick question. Also, please leave out the 'loser' or get a life/girlfriend' remarks. Those are not helpful, but rather crass, immature, and insensitive.
I ask, because I heard that a bloke was in a somewhat similar situation... He was in his late 20's, never had a girlfriend, and had crippling anxiety. However, he had sex with a stranger. After that, his anxiety was gone, got a girlfriend within a month, and got engaged after a few years of dating.
