1. anxiety one develops when facing temptation in a social setting when one has recently decided to quit drinking, and every person around them is buzzed and having a good time. Results in a feeling of detachment and resentment toward drunk friends and/or, alcohol relapse.
2. the feeling that you are being judged for choosing not to drink
This was not a good night for me to have to go to this art opening- these social vampires and their gleaming green beer bottles are makin' me dranxious.
DAAAAANG! + ANGST = Dangst.
A deep seated feeling of dread that develops when a strong, instant, physical attraction goes terribly wrong for someone with social anxiety. The sufferer is so paralyzed by a profound and deep-seated spiritual condition of insecurity and despair that they are unable to make even the most rudimentary of social gestures toward the object of their affection, and are fully aware that they are wasting a golden opportunity and failing themselves. Rather than just nut up and initiate conversation they will spend their time(possibly much longer) in the presence of the person in extreme inner turmoil- alternately admonishing themselves for not making a move and imagining pleasing possible social/sexual scenarios with said hot person.
Much dangst will be suffered at this Valentine's Day rpg tournament tonight.
