But at times, I so desperately want to interact with humans. I just don't know how.

I once worked on a phone hotline where some callers cited this problem. The training for it said to ask them to name several activities they enjoy.
Most eventually named something that put them near other people but did not require talking. Being careful to not recommend it (which might allow a caller to say, “Yes, but....” ), we asked them what would result if they did more of that activity.

Get out & volunteer at the soup kitchen or thrift store, join discussion groups, try some things from Meetup. Wish in one hand, spit in the other... which side gets filled...??!!

She's right. Volunteering allows you to focus on something other than your anxiety with other people. Before you know it, you'll be talking with strangers. (although I still get tongue-tied with beautiful women)

@BitFlipper In college a male friend was dating a beauty contest winner and she said she spends evenings alone because men think she will put them on a waiting list she doesn’t have.

@yvilletom that's nice. I don't know any beauty contest winners, and I don't make the waiting list - I make the "sorry" list.

If you find people you have things in common with, that makes it easier. I can easily chat with people who read books and hang out at bookstores.

You're interacting with humans right now. My suggestion, to prepare for the next step, is to learn that you don't have to interact with everyone. You can do that here also.

I'm guessing you have figured out by now how to interact with some. For me, it is figuring out how to put up with the ones that are annoying.

I find most people annoying at one time or another, yet, here I am at 71 without any murder charges.....yet.......

@Bn4fE5 possibly, as the older I get, the less patience I have. "Suffer fools gladly" my ass! Why are these fools making Me suffer???!

hope you find out
