Tss tss..... people can suffer from sociophobia, or agoraphobia etc.
We never know what somebody may be feeling.
Come on, it doesn’t take us much to be understanding.
I do sympathise with anyone that has these kind of genuine problems, but even so in the end it requirse the OP to do something about it, as they well know. Saying sweet meaningless nothings and mollycoddling people won't change that. In the end the OP needs to realise that they have been lucky enough to be able to move here with a stable job in a very safe country with the worlds best quality of life... I have known people in worse situations. OP, it's time to get yourself out there and make new experiences.

Further to my post 9 above, here is a list of clubs and societies in Basel:
http://www.mybasel.ch/links_vereine_alle_a-z.cfm

Here is an organisation which coordinates volunteering, should you wish to try that:
https://www.benevol.ch/de/freiwillig...allgemein.html

Here's information about what's on offer for newcomers from abroad:

And here's an organisation which is generally about helping people, especially newcomers, to identify their needs and obtain advice about the resources available in Basel.

Incidentally, this organisation was founded in the year 1777!

And here's a link to the Basel City Newcomers' Event

It is held in German, with translations into English and French.
