    I tend to start telling sarcastic jokes

    that are a bit on the darker side (at first everyone dies of laughter) but I continue the joke until it's just straight up vindictive and ugly (but I think that's why i consider it funny) anyways by the time I'm done everyone that at one time was laughing is calling me crazy...

    I am too awkward. I can't handle it.

    I always say the wrong thing and I'm awkward when meeting new people. Whenever my mom sends me into the store to get eggs or milk or something really quick, I freak out about having to talk to the people at the register. And I never slide the card correctly the first time which...

    They say that really awkward people (in social

    situations) are some of the greatest listeners you'll ever meet. That holds true with me😊

    Like really awkward. I understand how social

    interactions should work. Two things happen. Either I am stupid. Or I am unable to control myself.

    People who know me know

    that I am awkward. Part of it is because I am shy. Sometimes I don't always know what to say and I sometimes say things that are corny and outlandish. I don't feel like I fit in with most guys my age but I'm okay with that.

    I'm very very awkward.

    Especially around someone I like. So I usually keep my mouth shut when I'm around them. Probably a major reason why I'm not dating someone. πŸ˜‚

    Have you ever been I staring into space

    and then when you come back to reality you realize you're staring directly at someone? I always manage to get caught and try to look away just as they see me but it's already too late. The awkwardness is outta this world 😣
