    Boo-urns, that Improve Your Social Skills site only lets me read the Basic Guide for free. It wants me to pay to 'Become a Member' to read the rest.

      Unfortunately, it doesn't make sense for me to have the site be 100% free---I've put hundreds of hours into it and I couldn't afford to work on it as much as I do if it was totally free. But there is a TON of free content on there--it's very important to me that Improve Your Social Skills is valuable to people even if they can't or don't want to pay. So you can improve your social skills quite a bit just by reading through the basic guide and the blog :)

    If you don't really know anyone in your life, you can start by posting to Craigslist in the platonic section saying you are seeking a friend. Just list some interests of yours and maybe someone else will respond to you and you can meet (that part is probably the toughest, I realize).

    If you are sort of depressed or have a serious personality, try to smile more, and be generally more friendly towards people, even if you feel it's 'fake' of you.

    Last thing I can recommend is don't talk about your problems unless you are very good friends with somebody - everyone has issues and problems and no one wants to hears yours (not trying to sound mean or anything)

    In my life, when there was a major stressor, I just cut people out of my life. I don't think I had everyday social anxiety, but I felt I had to cut things out until I had everything under control. I didn't look at everything, but if you want to get into the habit of talking to other people, I would just suggest getting involved with a group of people with mutual interests. If you know a lot about something, there are plenty of people interested in learning or if you are interested in something, it shouldn't be too difficult to find someone who is more knowledgeable to learn from. A lot of my interests are not very common, so if I hear something start talking about it, I find myself talking to them. Another thing you can do, is if you have a good friend, hang out with their friends and see if you're compatible. Also, you can set up a profile on a penpal website and find somewhere from from across the world to talk to regarding mutual interests. Also, I would suggest going out and doing things on your own, that way you have to talk for yourself. If you make talking to people a regular part of yourself it doesn't become stressful. If you are in a stressful situation, change it and remember that everything passes in time and can get better. One more thing is to try to identify what is the primary stressor in your life. I have noticed that if you find ways to deal with the big problem, everything will mellow itself.
