Welcome to the Twin Cities Shyness & Social Anxiety Meet-up Group! Do people say "You're quiet"? Has anxiety in social situations made your life difficult? Our primary goal is to provide a safe, supportive environment where members, like you, may share similar thoughts, emotions, experiences and resources, and to break isolation. Here, we provide support groups, self-help materials and social outings (community events, restaurants, movies, museums, amusement parks, etc.). With these resources, we hope that you will be able to increase your comfort zone and expand your social network in a calm, comfortable, controlled environment. We're about friendship, learning from each other, exchanging ideas, realizing that we're not alone in our feelings & experiences. Make sure to check out the "Poll" section. There you can tell us more about you, and what it is you would like in this group. Membership dues are not required but pitching in at meetings to help with the cost of meetup.com fees would be very helpful.
