    I'm still confused.

    This one has been bugging me forever, I'm curious as to why I cannot cope well when talking to others.

    Of all the things I am not scared of, spiders are not one of them. I have a passionate hate of spiders. The only spider I feel comfortable around would be a Tarantula.

    That's not fear. That's something on a whole different level.

    I think they're very interesting little things. I actually enjoy watching them if I know they have absolutely 0% chance of getting on me. If there is even a slight chance of that happening I freak out though. A few weeks ago I was driving home and a big jumping spider ran across my dashboard and into the steering console and I almost got into an accident swerving in front of traffic to pull over and run out of the car.

    I'm very interested in spiders, as long as they can not get to me as you said.

    Two I'm very interested in are the Black Widow and Brown Recluse. Their venom is ominously potent. I would like to know why it is so.

    I could never go to Australia because I watch like the Discovery/Nat Geo channels all the time and have seen the kinds of spiders they have there. Even right in their cities. I couldn't do it.

    I'll like see a snake when I'm out hiking and run up and grab it so I can see it though. As long as I know it isn't poisonous. It's just spiders that bother me, and I guess any other large insect.

    I used to live in a house just outside of the town I live in now, and spiders would get in their all the time. I literally pulled my covers over my head and tucked the blanket under the mattress because I was so afraid.

    Well what I mean is, I'm usually too scared to talk to people. If I don't act emotionless I get all flustered and nervous.

    Again, if you expect the end result to go one way or another will determine your fears. If you knew they wanted you to talk, if you knew they already knew about you and liked your personality, you'd be completely fine.

    My only suggestion is the way I got over my social anxiety. I didn't really get over it, but I can deal with it now. I pretend that I am talking to myself in my head and simply voicing it outward. Thinking that they are not people but just a way of outwardly thinking that occasionally talked back helped me until I could fully(or at least not be completely awkward all the time) talk to people.

    It's not just fear toast. It's anxiety, which isn't really the same thing. I bet you're pretty self-conscious too aren't you? When I used to have a lot of social anxiety it was because I was always so concerned about I was doing, or how I looked, or what people thought of me. There's a lot you can do to conquer that, but it'll pass with age too, because the older you get the less it'll matter to you what other people think of you. You'll just have too much to take care of that you won't have the time or energy to devote to it.

    It shouldn't matter to you how likable other people think your personality is. If you enjoy yourself than that's all that matters. Their dislike doesn't change who you are unless you let it, and that just makes it their problem, not yours. Be confident in that and the rest will fall into place.

    You can compare fear to anxiety, but they are in no way the same. I look at it this way:
    Fear is being afraid of something.
    Anxiety is being afraid of doing something.


    There's obviously some exceptions to those, but I generally follow that.

    Whenever you take a screen shot Dibs I'm just leaning close to the screen looking at the tabs thinking "Come on, please tell me he took a screen shot when he had hentai in a tab."

    Eh, I had one yesterday with a hentai doujin, but I didn't notice until after I posted and I was too tired to go back in and edit it.
    Not like you could see it, other than "Why are you running away from me? ♥"

    The fact that I grew up alone doesn't really help much.

    The closest I got to interaction with my family was watching Kiki's Delivery Service with my mom(She's a bit more empathetic when it comes to liking anime) when I was little, my Dad didn't like just about everything I liked, so it was always awkward trying to talk to him, if I even did talk to him. My brother is special and doesn't like me because I embarrass him.

    Most of my days spent as a child was me holding a small teddy bear close to me, when school came around talking to family was hard, so other people was even harder.

    Just now with the support of two amazing people I've gained the confidence to maintain eye contact.
