Introduce yourself to someone new!
"omg, were doing it, were interacting with someone in a normal way, yes!"
Realize suddenly during the conversation that an alter must have already introduced you to this person a week ago using a different name, because of the degree of familiarity they’re using.
*Break out in a cold sweat, clam up like a clam.
Refrain from asking too many questions that might have already been asked. Stand around awkwardly. Wonder how cool people stand- possibly your cool alter who evidently already met this person last week, goddamnit.
*escape and need a full day to recover.
try to remember why avoiding people isn’t the right solution.
