So as the title states I am afraid of asking for a dance. It is just so frustrating because again and again I go to parties and for nothing. It is just so hard for me. I mean everybody is having fun and I am almost dieing inside for the thought of just asking for a dance and the most awful part is that I just might be making my situation worse for writing this in here as I am saying this to myself like further solidifying my belief. I have taken salsa,bachata,kizomba classes and I would say in classes I am one of the best. Like dance is what I really like. I have done all sorts of styles from Hip-Hop to locking and ballroom to salsa and inside I know I will become great at social dancing. But for some reason I can not let loose on the dance floor. I am always thinking whether the thing I want to do is too sensual or will I even be able to do it and thus I am afraid that if I ask a girl for a dance then we will be only making almost only basic and I just do not want to see their disappointment. I know part of the reason is that I danced a lot of time with an experienced dancer who got really angry if I messed up and yet was very disappointed when I did nothing special. I also have big trouble with starting conversations with strangers and especially girls I like. I was really shy before high school and not very popular as well thus I have almost zero experience with girls I just hope there is somebody who has been through similar experience and gotten out of it because this is messing my life up so bad. I just do not know what to do anymore.
