I feel uncomfortable with everyone / I don't feel comfortable with anyone.

I don't feel comfortable with anyone at all. Ok so, I'm a teenager and I don't have many friends at ALL. And the ones that I do have, I don't even know if I can call them my friends because I'm uncomfortable around them? Like we talk and text a lot about many things and so we're close right but when I actually get to meet them in person it's like I'm really uncomfortable to the point that when they leave, it's like phew *breath of relief*. Anyway, does anybody else feel that way? And what can I do and change so that I could stop feeling this way? I would just really like to be better and hang out with my friends but it's hard because of that. I never got help yet, so anybody with experience with this please help? Thank you very much.

I have the same problem with strangers. It seems to me that you are afraid of getting too attached with people around you. Make them feel special for being your friend and then they will be happy to be near you. Also, don't worry, darling it will be a time when you will want to have more time on your own. Now that you want friends, they are good to have around because sometimes they can help you or inspire you. Don't worry too much, real friends will stay with you forever :) Take care!

Completely understand. I'm 17 and I have no friends except ones I have on the Internet. It's my social anxiety. I never got help with it either, so I practiced at my own pace. I have a phonecall or a meet-up every once in a while to challenge myself and it really pays off. I understand how you feel.

I feel the same. I only have a few people who I am close to. When I get invited to places with people I don't know well, I start to worry about how I am going to get out of it. I want to go because I feel good about being included but at the same time, I know I'd be happier staying at home. Very conflicting!

Step away from the keyboard, in this modern world of always being connected, we are literally tethering ourselves to the screen. Break that cycle and you will see change. For 6 months I would game and stay home, all the time, then when I went outside, i was desensitized and over whelmed. I had to remember who I was in real life, how to be in public, how to walk and talk again so to speak. That helped in my recovery, and I feel great. try it out.
