    Re: Feeling that most strangers dislike me or find me distasteful

    The stare is immediately followed by a nose touch gesture or eye rub (Please search google images since I cannot provide links).
    I think this is a negative first impression triggered by something in my appearance.

    Is this me paying too much attention and making up stories?
    Is it possible that my appearance / movement seem weird and cause this?


    I developed a phobia to get out of the house and do things !!
    It used to be so easy for me to make friends and go out, what changed I cannot understand
    I think misreading and over-reading the social cues of others is at the crux of social phobia.

    That's certainly often a contributor but not the whole issue or problem.

    I don't think people pay that much attention to a person's looks. If they did then onlythat that are considered "beautiful" would have friends.
