    Haha whenever I talk to you,

    whether Skype or on here, I kinda just sit here smiling like a really awkward turtle, and then I sometimes just wonder, why is she even talking to me? And then I remember the answer to that.. She likes Oreos.. Without milk.. Dun dun dun... 😱 Yeah, I'm just weird :P

    I know a lot of people

    who are awkward turtles. The saying that it's only awkward if you make it awkward usually works.

    I'm awkward online. Like in real life I'm cool

    an collected but here it's like since people can't hear my voice I seem rude the way I type. At least to them I think I always sound quite nice but I guess they read stuff in there voice which probably doesn't have the same charm mine has.

    When people come on to EP to share their pain,

    anger, or sadness, I feel such compassion for them. I just want to reach out and make that person feel better. But I don't always know what to say, especially since I don't know the person, usually at all. So I don't say anything. Then I see that almost no one else has responded...

    It's the norm for a virgin who's never dated (Not even kissed) a girl. If allowed space to be myself, and you get to know me well, I am a extremely chilled, laid back, funny, confident, and generally awesome guy, haha. :) I'm amazingly un-predictable, so don't even try thinking...

    Not just "Sometimes" I am a very socially

    awkward person. I am just as awkward through messaging too at times. I tend to ask questions that put an awkward feeling into a conversation. Or I'll do something awkward then tell someone about it and the air just feels cold and silent. I'm just an awkward person. But i'm okay...

    there are more unintentional pauses within a

    We were all awkward growing up.

    We developed our social skills as we went. For me, I was most awkward around girls as I got into my teens. When it came to girls I really liked it was what to say, what to do, how to impress. I tried being someone I wasn't. Wrong! My eventual success was the result of finally...
