    mom... Then she said "I have twins at home :)" and I said "Omg I would kill myself" and she walked away... I don't know what made me say something so inappropriate. -_- ******' loser.

    The Wedding Experience

    I attended the wedding of a friend this weekend. I knew a handful of people there, but not too many.Some of the people, I hadn't seen in years. I was okay with the standards - "What have you been up to?", "Where do you live?", "How many kids do you have?", etc. After that...

    I'm so awkward that it's sad.

    I'm only okay when anime is playing or when I have my music.

    I guess the anxiety doesn't help.

    .. but when I'm able to contain my anxiety, everything gets awkward very fast. People don't know how to react to me... and they'd rather not talk to me at all.

    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 was at the store yesterday

    and this guy who was in some of my classes was there and I had to go right past him and he said hi (I freak out if I see people in public) and I said,"hey. Um. I like this store" my face got really red and I was so embarrassed and I just ran away...

    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'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...

    I can be extremely awkward in social setting

    because I'm not your average unique person and I have some really hard disabilities.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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'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

    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 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...

    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...

    when they talk, bc I wanna be noticed. But, oh boy, Im keep forgetting that I'm a socially awkward, so when our eyes meet I start to freak out and cry internally hoping they will break the eye contact soon.

    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.

    ...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...

    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

    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...
