Re: Getting blanked
I can empathize with the social anxiety, although mine was never that bad where it prevented me from talking to girls. The only way to snap out of it is to put yourself out there and meet people. I suffered from a very mild form of it up until the time I was forced to bunk with someone who I had never met before and live in a bay with 60 people who I had never met before. There has not been one instance since that time where I gave a second thought about approaching anyone.
Go run in the park, do some push ups and sit ups. There will be other people there doing it too and you already have something in common with them to spark a conversation.
