Post Reply Awkwardness
Posted 1/12/17
Life is awkward. You get used to dealing with awkward and not even care about it. And you get better at social situations with experience. And not everyone wants to talk.

I'm loud and chatty a lot of the time but sometimes I just want to recharge and get away from social stuff. The idea that people are strict A and B personalities is a flawed take on that whole thing.

This is strange to approach because I might be awkward because of my ability to get a bit too comfortable easily by demeanor. I think what may be the issue is that there's little to nothing i'm insecure about. Interestingly enough, I choose to be quiet often but I have no issue with unraveling/being outgoing, it's weird though. I think that may be awkward in itself, or is it? Am I overly comfortable? Or...impulsively behaved?

Bleh. I'm not strict to either or, nevertheless there's few thoughts too obscene or unfitting to discuss.


I can't even self-diagnose properly.


If the time comes and something gets awkward I usually laugh, finding it quite amusing and decide to do something to heighten the comedic level of that.

Only time I'm in awkward situations is when irl friends introduce me to their friends expecting me to become friends over a hi
Nah
I'll talk in public if need be, no problem
But do that, I'm gonna stand there not saying anything being awkward as hell

I seem to be awkward when it comes to social situations in specific. (I'm similar to Hifumi from New Game "She is especially shy to the point of avoiding talking to people or looking at them directly. So as not to make her feel uncomfortable the other employees interact with her through the company's computer messenger system. When she's communicating this way she is very lively and outgoing.") I find it quite uncomfortable to speak with voice so when it comes down to me being in a social situation I come off as extremely awkward, stiff, and uncomfortable. Pretty much anything involving voice to communicate will end up with me being extremely awkward and uncomfortable. To deal with such situations I just do my best to try and escape from the situation as fast as I can.

What do you do when something is awkward? Are you awkward in social situations? What has your experience been with awkward situations?




I'm usually first to embarrass myself. I find that once you do that conversation is easier and more fluid afterwards and the other people in the room relax.

When something is really awkward I just move the conversation along. Just pretend like the awkward thing never happened.

I'm really quiet around strangers and even my extended family. It's not awkwardness per say, but more that I don't really have anything to add to any conversation. Being surrounded by people drains me.

Typically awkward moments are short lived, so I tend to just wait them out. If I foresee them happening for a longer period of time, I will make efforts to avoid the situation or redirect.

Also, if you feel an awkward moment with a group of people, don't bring it up unless you know it's obvious. I have a friend who used to say "awkward" when things were just quiet. I don't think anyone else felt awkward until he said that.

Sometimes. My brain tends to switch off when I'm supposed to say something and that can do it. Not silence but someone saying something to me and me just being *blaaaaaaank*

I have the magical gift of only ever realising that something is awkward about 2 hours after the event. The event in question I then relive with all the realisation of awkwardness over and over for the next 3 hours. Of course by the time I relive it, it's hours too late to actually help in even the slightest way...

How do I stop the cycle? Simple, I watch a movie or something and then go back to whatever it was I was going to do~
