Talking with another human, like you, IS THE ANSWER. The longer you think about it the deep you fall into the rabbit hole of fear, shame, despair, etc. YUCK! Let’s not do that. We grow as humans WITH other humans. You have explicitly expressed a lack of human contact.
That’s your mission! Not “I’ll try to talk to someone.” Instead, “I’m looking forward to connecting with some LGBTQ peeps!” :-)
