Is it normal i get anxious around friends?
I am okay with people I've known for years but with new people/ friends I've known for say about 1 yearish, I get super nervous/anxious.
I also can get anxious and feel anxiety at any time because I just don't know when it'll spike.
I tried making this new friend whom I've known for about 8 months and I'd go and see her frequently at her work place despite feeling anxious but the anxiety didn't go away so I just stopped seeing her.
Feel a bit bad about it too since she's pretty cool/nice :)
Now I feel so paranoid she probably thinks I'm avoiding her. I also feel anxious with eye contact :/
Any tips ??
