Social phobia can demonstrate itself in a very specific situation, such as eating in front of other people, or in a more general way. The most severe cases are when one has an acute fear of being next to another person.
Social phobia sufferers know that their worry is not proportional to the situation. However, they cannot control their anxiety when facing certain social conditions, so they may avoid them. This will only make the disorder worse. Although you may not suffer anxiety on the short term, because of the lack of triggering situations, the anxiety itself will linger longer, and will dominate your preventive actions and lifestyle as a result.
