It's all bad

Ok I'm new here to this site...not sure about this. but this is the problem. I am a guy around 20 years old. I have real social problems. I have no friends, none at all. And I don't really know how to relate to women. I've never had a girlfriend, or even kissed a woman, much less sex. I know I am not owed either friends or a girlfriend, but I'm also sick of being so lonely, as it is causing other problems in my life-such as being kicked out of college, and many more problems. I realize I should probably go to a therapist, but this is something I am very humiliated about since I don't know anyone who has problems socially like me. I guess my question is this: where do I start with relationships and people when I have nothing to build on? I feel like I am too far behind. I am looking for help desperately so any answers to either of these questions would be really appreciated. Thank you

Hi! I know where you're coming from, I myself suffered from a crippling shyness for about 2 years when I was 17-19, to the point of where I couldn't even talk to shop-keepers or bus drivers, It was a really difficult time and I just felt so Isolated, for me to get out there and meet people I stared online gaming in MMO's, roleplay specificly. It sounds strange, but pretending to be a big confident character in a game helped me ease into confidence in the real world, then I started talking to people over the game, then moved onto skype calls, then advnetually hit the confidence to socialise with the physical beings, and now it's all a thing of the past and i'm sitting here with more confidence than i've ever had and gained a good few friends. ^-^ I know gaming isn't for everyone so I also know theres some online self confidence courses you can do, they're free and just give you little challenges to try out that can help you long term socially. Either way I hope it all works out for you ^-^ <3
