    Again, I'm not quite sure what you're getting at here, can you give me an example?
    I've met people before who are so quiet (e.g. they'd say one word or so) and non-emotional when I meet them that it makes me extremely uncomfortable

    I don't do particularly strange stuff, I just find it hard to talk to new people
    Anything else?

    I tend to be ok after the first 10 minutes or so but when first meeting someone I'm very withdrawn I must admit

    Yes, when dealing with a large group (like a party for example) I'm prone to panic attacks (nothing serious, 5 minutes alone usually fixes me up for about three hours) and I'm not really all that good at dealing with strangers (nerves)

    Based on the information that has been given (see the original post) would you hypothetically go on a date with me? It's not that hard to answer

    I'd just suggest faking it then, and practising being more social - because it's doable

    Ok then, that is something I've been working on (to moderate success) over the last couple of years

    that's good then - and don't forget, caffeine and alcohol generally goes a long way (not to suggest to you to become an addict to those things). I sometimes drink a bit of alcohol before having to speak before a large amount of people/audience

    It's a very weird sensation, the room starts wobbling and I end up being able to hear my heart beating, it's like being really drunk even though I'm sober

    The panic attacks come from social anxiety (in me at least) I think you can get a psychologist to test you for that, I was diagnosed when I was 9

    (I'm such a self centred person lol)

    I'm an 18 year old college student who likes movies, TV, exercise, video games, meeting new people and trying new things


    I have Asperger's syndrome (it makes me terrible in social situations, I usually can't figure out if someone's actually hitting on me or if they're just being friendly) and social anxiety (I tend to have panic attacks if surrounded by too many people, like at a concert for example)

    I have a somewhat crazy sense of humour, I've been told I can make almost anyone laugh though, I'm also quite intelligent and eloquent

    I guess my question is would anyone here consider dating me?

    (feel free to say no lol)

    It would depend on if we clicked, it's all well and good listing your traits and problems, but overall without a picture i can't really say, i myself have an anxiety issue and have suffered from mild depression, so i can emphasise with the social anxiety, but as for the Asperger's; i'm not too sure, are you kind of like Sheldon from TBBT (unable to detect sarcasm etc. I'm quite sarcastic at times)

    I think if you really like someone for who they are, they can accept the other persons problems such as anxiety
