As well as social anxiety, all users all have one thing in common: we were all new to the chatrooms once.
Please try to remember this, and help to make newbies feel welcome and at home, so that they can also begin to enjoy the benefits of feeling that they are part of the chatroom community.
The SAUK chatroom and lounge exist to provide a WELCOMING, SUPPORTIVE, UNDERSTANDING and FRIENDLY environment for ALL of its users to enjoy.
When the social anxiety becomes this bad, sufferers could be diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder, also known as Social Phobia.
Sufferers differ in how naturally reserved or outgoing they may be and in regard to the sorts of situations or people they might find most difficult or might be OK with.
They may experience specific physical symptoms such as trembling, rapid breathing, sweating or blushing.
Sufferers tend to be very self-conscious and worried about whether others might be evaluating them negatively.
Personal Touch Matchmaking is a Calgary Matchmaking Service owned and operated by Pat Wright who has over 30 years experience in the Matchmaking and Dating Service industry.
All clients of Personal Touch are interviewed in their office so that they know them all personally.They then match clients with other clients that appear to be compatible keeping in mind physical criteria, personal requirements etc., and then work with them to find just what is needed to find that spark.Our interviews and matches are done personally and in house by the same people.Individuals who are particularly socially inhibited, avoidant and sensitive to criticism or rejection may meet criteria for Avoidant Personality Disorder, now seen by many as only the more extreme or generalised end of an 'SA spectrum'.Much useful information is contained both on this website and in the forums, and support is available from the Forum and Chatrooms, please take your time to explore everything that the SAUK organisation can offer you.Many people can go through this kind of experience during adolescence, but for SA'ers the problems can persist well beyond those years.
