    I will seriously pretend like I didn't see you

    I like being around people,

    but I have to be in the mood for it. I really enjoy my own company. Sometimes I go out of my way to avoid people, for example I'll walk the back roads on campus so I don't have to say hi and engage in small talk with my peers.

    I am shy and have social anxiety,

    so not a fun guy to be around. People who know me think that I can be fun or their friend, but they are wrong. People who talk to me just waste their time. No one has any reason to try to make me laugh or attempt to pass the time with me rather than someone else. So, I either...

    Awkward!

    Everyday I am put in various awkward situations. I'm generally shy so that doesn't really help things. Whenever i feel there might be an uncomfortable situation about to occur I walk the other way.  I avoid the guy I like, I avoid my friends-it just seems easier that way. If I...
