I always chocked up my social discomfort to shyness. I can't be around alot of people who don't know me; I can't self-assuredly walk up and introduce myself to people. I have on a couple of occasions but I think they were where I knew alot about the person and wanted to pay them a compliment. If I am in a situation where I have no one to talk to because I don't know many people, I always imagine that everyone else is very aware of my discomfort.

I'm much more comfortable schmoozing with people I'm not supposed to know. My social discomfort doesn't extend to public places where I can certainly strike up good conversations with total strangers. So it's not that I'm afraid of people or don't like them.

Maybe you're just shy.
