Theres no way you should have problems meeting people. You are really easy to get along with and you are a strong hiker. You are also good looking and any dude would be lucky to hang out with you.
I must have hid my anxieties well on the backpacking trip then! For the most part I do fine interacting with people. I’m not very shy on that front. For the most part I do well, I enjoy talking and hanging out with people. I just fail on the friendship part. On the rare chance I swap numbers with someone I may actually stare at my phone if I want to hang out for hours before chickening out. I almost never initiate anything.
