Does anybody have a high amount of social anxiety but no fear of public speaking or making presentation?

For me, I have a huge amount of social anxiety but I have zero anxiety with making presentations or public speaking.

Being in business meeting is easy for me. Or speaking at AA meeting. It is almost second nature.

I wonder if anybody else has the same issue and specifically, struggle with one on one communication. Dating is near impossible for me.

Welcome to the forum. I was a teacher for years but still had a lot of social anxiety. My introverted nature made me want time alone after classes, and I didn't speak much to co-workers. Sometimes I think my quietness backfired on me. But I'm usually OK one-on-one.
