    So I got invited to go paintballing by people I don't even know, Well I got invited by my girlfriend's friend's boyfriend. And meh, I dont really want to go because 1. I dont know them 2.I kinda have bad anxiety when I met new people and I get boring, awkward and shy. Im not saying that I have anxiety to seem "depressed" or cool, I really hate it and it messed up my life. Any advice? should I go? I dont really have friends so I could attempt to make some but then again I've never paintballed before and dont want to be called a noob.

    If you don't want to go, don't go. If you do go, I wouldn't worry too much about it. The basic principle is to shoot the other team while avoiding getting shot yourself.

    If you want to try out paintballing, go! For most of it you won't be talking, you'll be shooting them! And if you're worried about awkwardness, sure it will be awkward at first, but afterwards I'm sure you'll have loads to talk about!

    If you're going to be this much of a vegetable for everything you do why even live?

    The problem with depressed people like yourself is that you assume things will be worse than they actually are. In 99% of cases you will end up surprised at how things went completely different to your expectation.

    Paintballing is extremely captivating and fun. So fun people become too tired to even talk. And seriously noone has time to notice your skill. Even if they did - so what?

    At least become more brave and social for your girlfriend. Don't be that boyfriend with no friends other than his gf.

    I don't think anyone will be bothered if you're a noob and if you do paintballing, the pain of getting hit will quickly make you not bothered about meeting new people
