Right from when i was a kid, my parents always locked me in, i didn't go out or socialize unless when i was in school, and in school i never cared about having fun or making friends. When i got to high school, i realised i was shy and timid, i couldn't have a conversation with anyone. I always hid myself, i didn't want to be noticed. I couldn't stand my age mates, they could threaten and scare the hell out of me. When i was towards my final year in high school, i tried to make friends and have fun, but i couldn't. I didn't have things to say, i couldn't approach any gal. Even in class i couldn't ask a question. I had low self esteem, i had no confidence in myself. I read a lot of online articles on self confidence and self hypnosis, but i still remained the self. Whenever i go out, i always receive dozens of IOI's from other girls but i just can't approach them because am not sure of what to say when i meet them. For 3 years now, am still struggling with this problem. Please help.
