Okay -- so since they have accents, are they foreign? Could they possibly just think you are shy if you sit and say nothing? I know you don't want to let your boyfriend down so maybe there's a compromise. Give yourself a time limit and a reason to leave?
By the way, I Hate My travel anxiety. I have been working on my anxiety about going places away from home (all my life). I am leaving for Florida next Thursday. It will not be easy but I am committed. Wish me luck! Carol

social anxiety. It's Christmas, and I'm crying ridiculously. My boyfriend of three years invited me to come meet his ENTIRE family tomorrow. I called him and told him I can't do it, and I feel terrible, but he still wants me to come. I just can't though. I'll embarrass myself, and they'll judge me, and they have accents I can't understand. I just want to disappear.
