Alright, I'll be straight forward. I'm a socially retarded smelly weeaboo girl. I haven't got outside my house in ~2 months, rarely ever shower, and I don't shave my legs. I spend all day home watching anime and staring at the wall. My life is lame and I want to change that. Thing is, I'm really fucking socially retarded it hurts. I can't hold conversations with people, especially when in person. I fear looking retarded. I currently only have 2 online friends but we rarely talk. What can I do to improve my social skills? I don't want to live like this,
Don't you have any regular activities that force social interaction like school or a job? Social skills naturally grow in these situations. If you aren't doing those you should strive to getting there.
...or you could be my waifu.
1. Take pride in your appearance. Take a bath, condition your hair, hell, put on some makeup if you'd like. Dress in a way that gives you confidence and makes you feel attractive.
2. Go out. To the store, to a meet up anything. There are places online where you can arrange to meet groups of people, or if you'd like, just go to the library and try to start up a conversation with a person. Somethin like that. You can't expect to want to do something like this and not step out of your comfort zone.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 as much as possible. Isolating yourself is half your misery - we are meant to be social creatures.
Good luck OP.
You'd be surprised how well people bond over a mutual love of books. I made a friend just helping someone borrow a book and another time I had a conversation with someone about stephen king just because we were in the aisle and didn't know which one to choose
Nah you can tell when someone's open to conversation by their body language. Besides, if people don't wanna talk to you they usually just make excuses and walk away. It's just a risk you take yknow? Besides just a quick smile can go a long way. It usually gets you a smile in return and books always provide a good opening topic for conversation!
I don't get why neets skip hygiene. Fix that.
Secondly get a job. It gets you out of the house, and it forces you to interact with people. It's a good starting point and lets you afford more outgoing interests.
After that, maybe take a stab at meetup, or try events being hosted locally. Talk to people who like the same stuff, and talk about it. It makes a good starting topic if you're a bit bad at being social. As you get more comfortable with the person even if you're just talking about video games or books or whatever else it'll be easier to talk to them about personal topics over time.
It'll be really uncomfortable at first but if you want change you need to force yourself out there.

Volunteer. Seriously, everybody who volunteers at the same place as you is nice to you and at least tries to start a conversation with you, because they have an incentive—keeping you volunteering.
I like it
So I have a crush on a girl from my school that I hardly know, and I want to tell her that I like her but I don't know where to start. I feel like it would be easier to tell her by introducing myself. But we're only acquaintances, the most interaction between us is her saying hi in the hallway. I have her kik, what should I say? Should I kik her?
> Help I don't shower, what do /adv/?
Go shower, stinky.
I rarely see OP respond to the real advice they're given in these threads. It'd probably help to respond to some of them even though I know a lot of people here are thirsty or just want a good laugh.
