How to Overcome Social Anxiety

It’s Emyli, America’s Online Dating Coach. Sometimes I feel like Michael Cera. I can be super socially awkward.

I stutter, I shuffle my feet, I don’t know what to do with my hands–it’s painful.

The good news though, is that we are all socially awkward sometimes.

I recently went to my 10 year high school reunion and I felt like such a tool. I had planned to get out there and network with people and learn about what they had been doing the last 10 years but instead, I kinda just sat there and watched people get drunk and dance around.

It was super awkward and the more I wanted to be social, the more anti-social I became. In the end, I just accepted that I was uncomfortable in that environment and I didn’t need to fake it to prove myself.

Maybe I am the same old nerd I always was and maybe that’s ok. Maybe I’m the McLovin’ of high school reunions.


Whatever, I am cool in my own nerdy, anti-social way.

The moral of the story is that sometimes, you’re gonna be awkward and uncomfortable and you’re gonna have social anxiety. That’s life and it’s not a big deal.

Just own it and face the fire and forgive yourself for being a dweeb.
