The Question Club
So. (Background story, sorries) I am Very: introverted, shy, anti social and awkward. (Around everyone, even people I know, and especially gals.)
So my Husband and I frequently go to the river on our day off to swim, play, drink beer etc. So last week, two of the guys we work with said it sounded cool, and my Husband offered to have us all go up together in our car. i was a little nervous but no biggie.
But then one of the guys' gf invited herself along too. The thing is, she's an okay girl, and i like working with her. but she is pretty Dramatic, and she and her boyfriend fight ALL THE TIME. I just dont know them as well as my Husband does. He is much more social and friendlier than I. I have only worked with them.
My anxiety has been terrible lately as it is, and now i just see my Husband and I's one fun day off together as something I am scared to happen. Its an hour and a half drive with three people I dont even hang out with that much. Im scared of awkward silences, and drama, etc etc.
I considered faking sick :( I know a lot of you might be, hey get over it have fun. but i was hoping those of you who really struggle with anxiety/social stuff like me might have some stories or advice? Besides being tipsy all day :P
