    Hey everyone

    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 :'(

    Oh and I know it sounds really pathetic coming from a boy, but I really dont know what happened to me and how to go back to my old self. What makes things worse is all the mates from secondary school think I'm jack the lad but im basically the opposite now :'(
