It helps ease me into a relationship whether it's platonic or w.e.. So what should I do? i want to find someone I can relate to but I can't do any group related activities in the first day... it's too much for my body to handle.
EXPOSURE, EXPOSURE, EXPOSURE! Don`t let a single day go by without atleast some kind of interaction! If you do you will be stuck at the beginning again. If you do it right, you will be able to handle more and more. But i can`t stress enough that you have to get as much exposure as you can as often as you can! And do it for yourself, fuck everybody else!
