    Is like me in so many ways, struggle a bit in the presence of people they don't know well. I can tell it is stressful and he doesn't make eye contact. Eye contact is something I do really well and can pass off as natural now but it can drain me and I've really learned to just do it. I hope ds will grow up and learn these things too! Age 9

As for conversation, faking it until I make it has helped. In new social settings, ask questions. People love talking about themselves.
