    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...

    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 Can't Start Up A Good Converstation

    In public, here, on other websites. When ever I try to make friends. It becomes awkward. I'll say something like this: "Er hello...so you like waffles?" Or something that is in there username.. "Hello! you like cats right? I see from your username you must be a cat person...

    I Never Have Much to Say...

    ...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...

    Yeah, I'm not much of a social butterfly,

    I know I'm weird and quite. I'm usually just silently assessing people until I find them worth speaking to or not.

    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 ?

    Every time someone starts a conversation with

    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.

    Do you remember how,

    I am so socially awkward

    where I'm surprised that my friends still want to be friends with me. Whenever I went to one of their houses for a party or something, I would talk before I think. I would say something that's either really weird or inappropriate. Of course I'll feel bad, but I would think, "Can...

    I Am So Clueless

    I never know what is really going on. Sometimes when someone likes me, I think they are just being friendly. And when I think someone actually likes me, it turns out they are just being friendly. It's really awkward, embarrassing but never boring. I am also uncoordinated and...

    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 hate to feel this way.

    Why can't I just get it together and join in on the fun? I was told that I was boring before. The more crowded a room gets the further I back up in a corner. I would be a horrible host. or perhaps boring.

    even awkward when talking to people online, I'm just so shy and a lot of the time I mess up my words, or things don't come out how I want them too, etc. Most of the time the things I say or how I reply just seem weird, when I don't mean it like that at all

    the main reason I hate being socially awkward is

    because I turn a bright red and get all teary or because it effects me on the Internet too. Like, if someone messaged me, I would most likely be really really awkward.

    It literally seems like I can't talk to a

    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...
