Well I just joined year 12 in a new mixed college.
I used to go to an all boys school between year 7 and 11. I was really outgoing and loud and everyone used to call me fun to be around but then I began to get more shy along the years, especially around girls (even though I did have a girlfriend, but I ended up even more shy after that). Now I'm so self conscious about the way I look. I managed to make a lot of friends in secondary school but they all went to a different college so I pretty much had to start again. Its been around a week now and I've only made a couple friends, who are both female, but there's this particular girl I like and shes really nice she's always friendly and stuff but whenever I respond I get really really nervous and I dont just get butterflies in my stomach, they're bloody moths. She hangs around with another group which are somewhat nice too, but I dont know why I get so nervous and I'm kind of petrified of even asking if I can join their group. I'm so scared that I wont have anything interesting to talk about and will make a lot of awkward silences. I'm not even sure how I'm supposed to go about it
Please help :'(
I wont settle for anything else!
