    she told me that her daughter has social anxiety and has a hard time chatting with people! ... except me

that is fantastic my man. there's a place in teenagers' lives that cannot be filled by parents. It will be filled by others. When you can fill in that place as a good person, it leaves little room for others who may also try to fill that place. I am so glad for her that she has you as that person.

I count myself fortunate to have had a couple of great people like you when I was a teenager. It truly saved my life and created so many opportunities. Thanks for being an awesome neighbor and person.
