Recently i have been wanting to get into the whole relationship thing, but i don't really know how to go about it.
I am very shy, and quite overweight. A few years ago i developed an addiction to video games. I shut myself out from the outside world and only cared about what was on my screen.
I have never been very social around females, even at school i would hardly chat to anyone besides my mates.
I am 20, still a virgin and i am honestly very ashamed of myself for being a antisocial slob for 4 years.
I see all my mates and my brother so happy that they have found someone they love, then there's me.
My social anxiety started when i was 14, i was never comfortable around large groups of people. I felt like i was constantly being watched, judged and laughed at because if my weight, made me feel horrible about myself and that sort of kicked off my depression stage.
I want to go out and try and meet a special someone but i just don't know how to do it. If i go to pubs and clubs, girls are all in groups and that turns me off from even cracking an attempt. The thing i am scared about is getting rejected, and with anxiety that would be the most humiliating thing ever.
I have tried the whole 'online dating' thing, and it never worked out. I get matches here and there, and when a conversation strikes, it ends rather quickly.
Does anyone, male or female have any good advice for me?
