Overcoming dating shyness
However, for some it can 'stick', and then action is required.
It is my personal opinion that social phobia is too often diagnosed where people are simply experiencing natural shyness.
Normally I keep any of the dating and relationship advice on a separate site but I felt like it was time we at least took a look at social anxiety and dating. A part of helping you see how to overcome social anxiety to sort this part of the problem out too.
In fact it’s not really going to be a guide because there’s no real blueprint for point A (being social anxious and not wanting to talk or make eye contact with people) to point B (on a date) from the shyness and social anxiety perspective.
And for some, shyness seems to persist into adult life, almost as if it has become a 'habit'.
Shyness has its roots in self consciousness and usually dissipates as people mature and become more experienced.
