It's like a fear or overwhelm when u have to actually make a phone call, or accept a phone call. It's like I wish I could totally avoid this. Even when I do it, doesn't get any easier. I could never be a phone person for a living.

All the time, i hate when I receive a phone call (even from someone I like that's easy to talk to) I always stare at the name for seconds while it rings but usually I think "well if I don't answer now then I'll have to explain why I didn't answer later and maybe they won't like me now" my anxiety usually wins and I answer.

Yes. I always have. It takes way too much energy to talk and I avoid it unless I need to get something done right now and it requires a back and forth. I much prefer sitting at computer and having a chat. I do hate asynchronus convos though and thats how everyone is now. I want to have the conversation at once and then move on...not stretch it out over days to say 10min worth of stuff.

I hate phones. My phone doesn't even work anymore (it is blocked) so I only use it to listen to music. Thankfully there are no phones where I live, so by now I don't really have to talk on phones anymore.

That said, I have a friend who is always pestering me to voice chat with him. I kinda want to but the anxiety is just so awful.

Yes, but it's because people scream all of the time on their phones and waste countless minutes by trying to rephrase what they're saying in 3000 different ways, I just can't stand it

Yes. I hate answering phone calls and making them. I usually let people leave a message and I'll get back to them. I wish there was an option to allow it to go straight to voicemail when I called people. I much prefer texting and emails.

I'm the same way, every time I get a phone call I just let it go to answering service, and if they leave a message I will, with trepidation, listen, and then return the call.

I literally can't even remember the last time I spoke with someone over the phone. I wanna say at least a few years ago for less than 2-3 minutes to one of my relatives, but I honestly can't say for sure. Unless it's one of my parents on the other end of the line, I absolutely refuse to answer or speak with anyone over the phone. If my parents aren't around then the phone simply doesn't get picked up. Period. For me personally, talking over the phone is just as bad, if not worse in some ways, as speaking with someone in person. Unless we're talking over 500$ per phone call, you couldn't even pay me to do it.

I get something similiar to a panic attack each time an unknown number calls me/ I have to make phone calls. I can't even bring myself to make a call it it's important and would benefit me (like calling to get information on a job etc.), because of my strong anxiety.

Sometimes I even get anxiety when they leave a message lol! If I don't know who it is I might not listen.

Lol! Right it's about incentives, u pay me $500 to talk and I'll be glad to share a voice call for like half hour tops.

This is the best idea I saw in a while.

The same happens to me, even receiving a message of an unknown number makes me hyperventilate.
