    If he has social anxiety, the worst thing you can do is shout at him or get angry at him. That will cause him to be worse.

    What problems it is causing for the two of you? You should start off simple. The two of you could go out with a few close friends. Try to let him be more relaxed and confident to talk more. After that, do more activities to help him increase his confidence.

    Be there for that person! Offer them advice but don't force them to take it and make sure they talk about their feelings. Anxiety is something that gets bottled up and plays games in your head if itsnot expressed in other ways. Try to offer distractions from their own thoughts and don't address things that trigger the anxiety. Above all else don't point out social blunders unless you are assuring them that they did not do something wrong. Try to avoid talking about it before bed because it will probably keep said person awake.
    As for your other question has he got a camp voice/mannerisms, flirt with other men or does he fit the stereotypical physical build of a gay guy.

    So you've not only used the term "gay" as an insult, but it seems that insult is because your boyfriend suffers from an anxiety disorder? You sound lovely.

    Maybe don't get angry and call him gay for it? That'd be a GREAT start to being comforting. And look up social anxiety and educate yourself on it.

    Break up with him because your boyfriend deserves someone who actually cares for them rather than a homophobic ***** who makes fun out of their mental health problems.
