    Say you found a guy attractive and he's intelligent, caring, yada yada yada

    But socially, he's inept, not a very good conversationalist and doesn't like to socialise much. Would that be a deal-breaker based on that?

    I'm asking because I have social problems, I don't socialise much and so I find it hard to meet girls and when I do I find it hard to talk to them (or anyone) unless they are a good talker and keep the conversation going.

    Do I have no hope in finding love?

    I suffer from anxiety disorders myself so I would understand what its like so I would definitely be OK dating someone with an anxiety condition.

    I don't mind quiet guys as long as once we've gotten to know each other they open up more and talk a lot more once they're comfortable. I'm quite a reserved person so I usually need someone who will bring me out of my shell but if I liked the guy then I'd give it a shot

    Yes I definitely would. I have anxiety, so I guess we would understand each other more than people without anxiety.

    Well considering that some people actually think I have social anxiety, (I don't think I do) I guess It would be good. We would have a lot more in common than if I was with someone that was loud and really outgoing.

    Yeah, I'm not good at socialising either so I understand. But if he is able to open up more once he's comfortable then that'd be good

    It is tough not being a social guy, especially if you're really introverted, but I'm sure there are girls out there that wouldn't mind it. (I hope :indiff:)

    I suffer from anxiety, mainly social based anxiety and because I understand what it's like, then yes. Even if a guy I liked told me he had depression or insomnia or any other mental disorders, If I came to like him that much, I wouldn't let that get in the way of the relationship.

    As long as he is comfortable around me, and he can be himself, talk to me about anything, and have a laugh, then yes

    If we got on well then I would date them and wouldn't bother me how they acted around others; a relationship is between two people not a massive crowd lol

    I am shockingly poor at conversation with most people, so quiet and poor at eye contact and general social niceties that I unintentionally appear rather rude a lot of the time, and almost pathologically afraid of meeting new people, but I did find someone..the wonders of social media eh
