I Am Socially Awkward

Social outcasts 10,202 People

    Ive always been a very keep to myself kind of

    person. I dont like people knowing my business, my weaknesses. Talking about that stuff makes me uncomfortable. I act emotionless or like i dont care most of the time. I do that to avoid question that i dont wanna answer. Sometimes i feel bad about how emotionally distant and...

    It's not that I can't carry a conversation,

    I'm just too scared to. I'm afraid of saying what's on my mind because of being judged or having someone take something I said the wrong way. Sometimes I go through an entire conversation in my head, almost planning it out before I talk to the person and then when I finally do...

    Hello, I'm Awkward.

    I am the most awkward person I know. I look around me and see all of these 'normal' people, going about their lives, able to go out into the world. And then I look in the mirror and see this awkward mess staring back at me. I try so hard to fit in while at the same time being...

    to say. So I say something and it goes down hill from there.

    Have you ever been in a conversation

    and realized you've made the situation awkward, like realized it the exact moment when it happened?

    Though I try my best,

    I cannot hide the fact I am not from this world. Clumsy to the point that people wonder if I do it on purpose. Laughing when I shouldn't, and not laughing when it's expected. Misunderstandings... everywhere. "What is WRONG with you?!" - everyone ever I swear, I come in peace...

    I'm an introvert. And my mom thinks being like

    that is anti-social (she is the biggest, extroverted blabbermouth). So she forces me to do social things, A LOT of social things. And to top it all off, my siblings call me socially awkward just because of that.

    I hate when people say

    that being socially awkward is 'cute.' It's not ******* cute, it's a pain in the *** and causes more problems then I know how to deal with. Don't say you're socially awkward if you're just trying to get attention. Sorry, just had to get that off my chest. Hope I didn't offend...

    I have no idea how to read people's expressions

    or talk about things that they care about. I wish I could realize how to just have normal conversations. I'm not nervous or afraid but I don't know how to be myself and talk to people knowing they care about what I say

    Of Course You Are Too.,

    I don't think that some one would spend time on this site at all if they weren't socially awkward.  So, if you are reading this, then I think it is only fair that you too join this group.  Thank you.

    I'm sick of having social anxiety

    and awkwardness. I'm able to talk to people but generally have crazy repressed nerves while doing so. After having a few minor panic attacks I'm really dead set on doing something about it. So just know you're not alone and I'm happy to talk to anyone going through this ?

    The awkward thing of being socially awkward is

    when realise that there is no cure or a pill to help you with your awkwardness ...so you're probably always going to be an awkward person for the rest of your life. Well you can try to not be awkward but trying to not be awkward is really awkward... Oh I hate my awkward life...

    like I get scared talking to people a lot. It just makes me nervous. Ever since I joined EP for the most part I feel welcomed. So I'd like to thank everyone that's been so nice and nonjudgmental

    Do you remember how,

    as a kid, when the doorbell rang, you'd run to the door out of curiosity to see who it is? Now I just run to my room lol somebody needs to learn socializing skills. Nailed it.

    I Am Painfully Awkward.

    And I don't mean that to be "quirky". A lot of people, I've noticed tend to lovingly describe themselves or their friends as awkward for having out-of-the-box thinking. For example, I remember going to the movies and seeing some people I knew from college sitting a few rows ahead...

    ...but I have so much on my mind! As the username implies, I'm one of those spacey, nature-loving hippy types. I like to think deeply about EVERYTHING and that gets me into trouble socially most of the time. I tend to zone out when I don't feel included in the conversation - and...
