My name is Robert. I am 28 years old and I have been shy most of my life. I was raised to be shy. This makes it even harder to cope with it. I have never had a girlfriend. I am also a virgin. I am ashamed of being one. I cannot talk to a girl. I wish one would approach me instead. Why won’t that happen? If women are sensitive, then they should go up to some guys who are quiet and shy. I have been in therapy for shyness, but it did not help. I am very depressed and often think I will never meet a girl. Please help.
