Hi, Brandon! I think I know how you feel... though they are all socially anxious, they may still think one person is cooler than another. But just remember, they are socially anxious too, and if you act (as in, be truly confident and show it) confident they can't hurt you.
Do you find it easier or harder that it's mostly older women? Or just the same?
Hey, Anhilization! Maybe if you have nothing better to do, use that group to educate the others (including the facilitators) as well as learn about them! :)
