Wow it's great to finally be among my own kind! I'm in my early 20s and have been feeling like this for 5 years now. Apart from the crippling shyness I also go a humiliatingly fluorescent shade of red whenever any attention is on me :oops:
Until a few months ago I had my long-suffering finace who understood and so I was completely normal and confident with him but since we broke up I feel like I'm destined for eternal singledom since I can't even have a normal conversation with most people. Just feeling particularly down tonight so thought I'd drop in and try to find something to pick my mood up a bit .
