    Hi. So I was searching for how to make new friends easily, and I came across this.
    It made me wish this existed haha.



    So I have this problem when it comes to making friends or even just talking to people. It's like I have this approach anxiety and I feel as if I'd be bothersome if I spoke.

    Does any one else feel like this, or do you know how to get over this?

    Do you know when and where it is appropriate to talk to strangers?
    Is there anything you take a lot of interest in and want to talk about with others? If so, there should be a place to do so.
    Looking back, I kind of brushed off those after school clubs and even social events at uni citing the common excuse of "anxiety", and now I'm struggling to find work.

    Edit: app is an extremely bad idea, it gives more predators the opportunity to pounce on unsuspected victims. So do go for the old fashioned ways of gathering

    I guess that's a good point, being at at the right environment would make it easier to identify who wouldn't mind speaking. Although I sometimes see others who can easily walk up to any one and start speaking, I feel envious of those people at times.

    It's probably a skill one needs to learn, but I don't know where to start.

    Volunteering is the best place to start. Work at a charity shop or food bank, attend fundraising events etc. You won't have to spend all your time talking, either

    True, I'll give that a try if an opportunity comes up. Thanks for replying
