Anxiety . . .
Shake Your Shyness
- I'm a little biased about
this site, because its one of my own. First published in 2000, the
site has welcomed over 100,000 visitors and is considered one of the
best resources for information on the topic shyness and social
anxiety on the internet. I maintain the site as part of my
commitment to the provision of pro bono (i.e., free) services to the
community, which with the evolution of the internet has come to mean
the entire world.

not so good tips to find.

start for looking for tips on how to ask people out, what to do on your first
date and is one of the few sites that actually teaches some of the skills you'll
need to learn if you want to the keep the right partner once you've found
