Way Too Social is a website devoted to providing the best evidence-based dating and relationship advice for single men, especially those who suffer from social anxiety. Our aim is to give people the tools they need to overcome anxiety, build confidence, and find love. One of the ways that people can improve their self-confidence is to get a better education. Going to college and getting a degree not only opens doors to career possibilities, it offers people an opportunity to prove to themselves that they are capable of meeting an intellectual challenge.
