20 times awkward people messed up simple social interactions: 'Maintaining eye contact. I just can't do it'

It's no secret that being a socially anxious person can make the simplest of social interactions feel like a Sisyphean undertaking.

However, I have on occasion texted an unkind thought about a family member or a date to that very person. There may be ways to unsend messages now given advancemen…
