Hey there! Brian here! I figured I would throw a question out there and see what happens
I have been socially phobic almost my entire life, going back to when I was a small kid. I've never been particularly good at breaking the ice and feeling at ease around others. I'm also not the best when it comes to small talk. So, my question is: What is an easy way to break the ice if you're socially phobic, or 'awkward' as it was called when I was young? I'm getting better at it, but I don't really have friends in real life and I live in a place where meeting others can be problematic at best.
The best response will receive a hearty handshake and a 'WELL DONE!' at the earliest opportunity.
