I think the average persons fear is rejection. It' is an underlying reason for miscalculation, and poor decisions.

I don't think it's due to social anxiety, but I hesitate. I don't fall in love or become attached easily, which I think is a function of difficulty finding common ground. Also, since I don't want to get married or have kids I may assume it won't work out due to lifestyle choice differences.

I am love-shy and it is getting much worse with age.

I totally used to be but I sort of grew out of it.

I've always been more of an introvert but I was still a pretty out going person when I was younger (as a kid through middle school). But once I hit high school I really turned into an introvert and due to a lot of things happening in my life I started to withdraw myself from my peers, sticking to only my very closest friends when it came to my social life.

Though since starting college I've been working on becoming more on who I'd really like to be, which one thing was to be more out going again. But its still pretty hard to try anything in the relationship department. I'm hoping that the more I keep on working on it the better it'll get.
