I have never been on a date or held a full time job yet and I have lost most of my friends. I have kind of made new friends but I rarely see them, or speak to them. I feel like I have social anxiety. And this makes me scared to move on. Firstly because the only people I have really ever been accepted by work at my current part time job. I don't really have many friends and it is very hard to make any at my age (26 on December 31). I have never been a popular person to be around. I also tjink that my social anxiety makes it hard for me to communicate and intereact with other people. Is there anyone who feels the same way? I have been so alone the past few years and been very dwpeessed because I have been missing out on life. I used to fwwl scared to go out in public by myself, I would still do it to a point, but not for anything fun. Withing the last year or so I have staryed to go to concerts by myself and fairly recently going to bars and moviesby myself. Not that I enjoy that, I'm just trying to het out of the house and out of my head. I just want to live a normal life, get an enjoyable job with decent pay, meet a great girl that I'm attracted to and have a gamily and live in a decent home. Why can't I find this? Anyone else feel this way

I've had social anxiety and still have to some extent.
That's the main problem for you, I think. If you can get a handle on that then you can start to live the life you want.
I know it's hard to work on getting rid of social anxiety but imagine that if you spend one year of 100% dedication to get rid off or at least get your social anxiety into a controllable level then you'd be 27. That's really no age. Then you'd have plenty of time for dating and living the life you want to.
Start with small steps. Every journey start with one small step. But the first is usually the hardest.
Don't give up now and already start to imagine a life alone. Life is short but it's also very very long when we don't live the life we want to live.1
