Do you get paranoid that others aren't going to like you when you meet new people?

I have a hard time meeting new people because I'm worried that I will be rejected. Am I alone?

  • Sometimes, yes. It really depends on the person. But I also remember that I am who I am and I dont want someone to like me for a superficial reason. If they dont like you for who you are, theyre not worth your time. It is important to have friends, but it is also important to have a good relationship with those friends and hang out with people that like you for you.

  • I used to really get stressed out, but being older now has taught me that I have to simply be nice and if they like me fine, if not no big deal.. It gets easier and easier. Be proud of who you are and smile!

  • I used to worry about it when I was younger. If someone is going to find a reason to dislike me that is their fault not mine.

  • I used to, but as a matured.....i learned to not give a fuck.

    Everyone must realize, that not everyone is going to like them & that is OK. They are the ones missing out, not you. If you like yourself enough, you'll think "screw them, i am awesome ".

    Also, those insecurities are noticeable & they are unattractive. When you're out & about, just think of how awesome you are & people will think you're awesome too.

  • If they can't like you for who you are, they aren't worth worrying about. People are just people. Everyone has problems. No one is perfect. Just enjoy life and don't sweat the small stuff.
