I don't know what to do about this really. I mean, I'm not a terribly bad looking person. I'm pretty athletic and very active, positive, funny, blah blah blah. All taht good stuff. But it's not a product of my nature, it's a product of my environment. I'm just really interested in a lot of things and they so happen to be physical in nature. I'm really just a huge fucking geek. I mean it. I'm IT crew, I collect comics (my collection is worth more than my life insurance), I watch anime, I play video games, etc. etc. But I do well in hiding all of it and pretend to be really cool all the time. Here's the problem, asylum crew, I am a total idiot with it comes to women. Example, I was with my friend (who isn't) the other day while at the grocery store buying some stuff for a BBQ. This chick who I thought was cute, came over and asked us if we needed help. I just said, nope that we were just looking for stuff to cook. So she took me around pointing things out that would be good. Asked when we were doing it and saying how much she loved cooking and BBQ's and whatever. She had to get back to working so she took off. My friend smacked me and told me that she was, in fact, hitting on me. And I was completely oblivious to this. And then when I realized this, I immediately became horribly afraid of her. <-- this is the problem. I get terrified of girls. I don't even know what it is. I think it's the rejection. I think it's the confrontation. I don't even know. What should one do to overcome this kind of thing?
