    Thought id make this topic after reading the topic of being shy around girls.

    Ive had it for ages, and its really annoying, a quick explanation of it is:

    (from Wikipedia

    The experience is commonly described as having physiological components (e.g., sweating, blushing), cognitive/perceptual components (e.g. belief that one may be judged negatively; looking for signs of disapproval) and behavioral components (e.g. avoiding a situation).

    Social anxieties may also be classified according to the broadness of triggering social situations. For example, fear of eating in public has a very narrow situational scope (eating in public), while shyness may have a wide scope (a person may be shy of doing many things in various circumstances).[1] Different terms may be used for specific social anxieties - for example performance anxiety, public speaking anxiety or stage fright. Anxiety about public speaking or interviews is common, as is shyness.[2]
