Social Anxiety Symptoms in Adults

Social Anxiety Symptoms in Adults

While social anxiety disorder typically starts and is seen in adolescents, there are many millions of adults who struggle with the condition as well. 

When social anxiety persists into adulthood, it can affect an individual's ability to form healthy, lasting relationships, and may negatively impact their professional life as well. While the symptoms of social anxiety disorder are similar regardless of age, there are subtle differences in the way the condition manifests in adults as opposed to adolescents or children. 

If you or a loved one is an adult who displays any of the following symptoms, it may be indicative of social anxiety disorder:

 Common Symptoms in Adults

  • Difficulties in performing at work or maintaining a career
  • Difficulty establishing or maintaining romantic relationships
  • Lack of close long-term friendships
  • Fear of being criticized or of looking foolish
  • Intense fear of interacting with strangers
  • Avoiding situations where you might be the center of attention
  • Physical symptoms such as lightheadedness, shortness of breath, or sweating
  • Avoiding common social situations, such as work functions or parties
