    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...

    I am very awkward when talking to people.

    Sometimes I just nod because I don't know how to reply to the simplest of things

    I found out why I lose all of my friends.

    It's nice to at least know now though. It's because I'm so socially awkward and I suck at making conversation. I get it now. At least I'm not tormented by not knowing anymore. It's because I'm boring and I'm horrible with carrying on a conversation. I always run out of stuff to...

    I was at a Taco Bell drive-thru,

    and ordered my food. As I drove up to the window, I was presently greeted by a pretty woman with a nice voice. My first thought: I didn't know Taco Bell hired supermodels. Anyways I tried to play it cool and not be stunned by her looks. She seemed a bit attracted to me by the...

    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...

    I had nay guts to post anything in this group,

    but a film gave me inspiration to express myself truly... I am Socially Awkward. I am a 21 year old person, but look like 45-50 year old man. And my mother said once that I look older than my father. I can never date any girl because girls generally think me I am a kind of Uncle...

    so today I went to my boyfriends open house

    and wanted to cry because of how awkward I felt. I was shaking and felt so out of place. my boyfriend took my hand and taught me that it is not that hard to actually be social and to converse with others. I am very blessed to have him be apart of my life. 💗

    Sometimes when people try to talk to me I just

    freeze up and if I feel too embarrassed I just blink really slowly so I don't have to look at them for any longer of a period that I absolutely have to. I'm pretty sure that makes people think I'm mentally slow or something but I find I do it without thinking. Does anyone have...

    It literally seems like I can't talk to a

    person of the opposite sex for more than two minutes without looking away or awkwardly fidgeting. I give up. I'm forever a rock. If you need me, I'll be laying on the floor with my hands over my face.

    I'm usually really awkward,

    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

    I've recently been trying to force myself to

    keep my chin up and shoulders relaxed at all times, as well as "owning" my walk and laid back demeanor. It's a difficult habit to keep, but when I remember to do it, I can actually be confident. You need to try to love yourself and not care about what anyone thinks. When I say...

    Truth is my social skills depends on

    who I'm with, I can talk to a girl who is just a friend and has similar interest but I can barely maintain a conversation with a girl that I think is cute. I can talk to people I've been around long enough but can barely talk to new people.

    so weird. It's not like I try to be. I've been the "other" one, the "weird one" and the "outcast" in school and groups since I was a kid. Everyone says things, to me of behind back. I have a core group of friends, but sometimes even they say things. I just feel so bad about...

    I'm socially awkward.

    I don't have any close friend. I'm always alone. I feel so lonely. No one understands me. But I'm afraid to let others know what I think.

    I'm really awkward around people.

    I plan things so much before, on how to reply and talk with people but they never go my way. I try to bring out my spontaneity but it always gets weird. Perhaps that's why no one wants to hang out with me, because I'm too weird. Maybe they think that I don't want to talk to them...

    the thing about me is

    that i only take things at face value, unless you make it explicitly obvious, i don't pick anything up. if its a coment with a hidden snide and sinister meaning to it i probably won't pick it up, this leads to me being an idiot sometimes

    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.
