Fear of Rejection

Posted 24th April 2019 at 19:52 by indigo777

The fear of rejection often comes up. This is usually from the view of males as of course men are almost always expected to approach and befriend women if they dont want to end alone as most women never make the first move beyond smiling and the odd hello if you are lucky. You almost always get the advice of just go talk to women all the time and get used to it, get used to rejection! Go speak to old cashiers at the supermarket. Nothing bad can happen so what have you got to lose? etc.

Aspergers and social anxiety

Posted 14th January 2019 at 14:13 by indigo777

How does a man be assertive without being creepy?

Posted 24th August 2018 at 19:54 by indigo777

I was reading some posts on an anxiety forum and several men said they almost felt like a creepy weirdo for approaching women, like they had no right to do it, like it was even a form of harassment. I also felt the same way. I think I actually found it degrading that as I was male I was expected to approach girls when I had the social skills of a dead sloth. You like a girl but the only way to get her to like you back and to go out with you is for you to approach her and befriend her, the only...

Should you post at all online when depressed?

Posted 22nd July 2018 at 19:56 by indigo777

........or do people at large discourage it forcing us to remain silent? Donít keep it all bottled up insideÖ..but dont let it out and depress anyone else either! What? More hypocrisy on mental health?

Is it alright to blog or post online when you are depressed? Well if itís a blog about depression then its going to be hard not to! I say this because I just read something from a well known social anxiety blogger person in their book who says when they went to an online social anxiety...
