Hi all! My first post on TSR, I probably should have introduced myself first but I'll get round to it eventually.
I'm 17 doing AS levels in a mixed 6th form, the issue is my secondary school was segregated to boys only so for the vast majority of my teenage years I've essentially had no exposure to the opposite sex. Up until before year 12 I was always very sociable and approachable and could easily converse with others but since starting year 12 I've been a nervous wreck since September and only recently have I actually started engaging with people albeit on occasion :/ I can't converse with anyone I don't already know unless they start the conversation and I seem to go out of my way to avoid eye contact with people. I'm very short and skinny for my age too which may be a contributing factor to this. What's also embarrassing is I've started to sweat a lot more recently too :/ I can't contribute in lessons anymore like I could in secondary school and I'm actually getting worried my teachers will think less of me because of this. I need help putting myself out there and actually being able to talk to people again and most notably girls since this is my first year since primary school with them! :/
Shyness / Unsure about myself?
