I am 24, a graduate school student in Architecture. I am writing my thesis now, so I spend lots of time by myself at writing. Other form the thesis, I hit the gym every morning at 6 to 8, I have Japanese classes 2 times a week. I have not having any sort of social life for almost 2 years, I think I've only hang with my friends (in other cities) may about 5 times for the last year. Only on special occasions they came to visit me. I actually suffer from social anxiety for a long time, it's the main reason I want to stop PMO. I want to expand my social life, I don't think that spend the whole month by myself is healthy. Is it a good idea to approach girls at the gym or the Japanese class ? Since I don't want it to become awkward, so I have to change a gym or class.... I do get to know a few guys at the gym eventually we said good morning and maybe have some small talk about working out, nothing more. Any advise for me to expand my social life? I guess I've been living alone for too long that this life routine is a really strong habit.
