Can someone help with what I think is a psychology problem?
Psychology is science right? Anyway, I think my friend may have a psychology problem. The thing is, he can't talk to people. If he is around anyone he doesn't know he gets very uncomfortable and won't talk or eat around them. I have seen him manage to get out a few words when talking to men he doesn't know when he really has to talk to them, but when it comes to women he can't even say a word to his college professor that he doesn't know. If someone is really trying to be his friend it usually takes a few weeks for him to talk to a guy and about a month to talk to a girl. I asked and he says he's never seen any kind of psychologist. I think this problem could really make his life more difficult. Is there any advice I could give him? He seems to get sad a lot if that helps.
