I have been shy all my life. I have never had a girlfriend nor have I been in love. Everything I do I do alone. I go to movies alone, eat out alone. I want to know that there is more to life then this. That there is hope for me to break free and get rid of my shyness or accept it and live with it. Are there others who feel the way I do? It would help me to know. Then maybe I would not feel like a freak of nature.
