I'm out in public. Please send help.

1. Making eye contact is the hardest thing you'll do all day.

2. In photos, you always try to look fun and spontaneous, but end up with your eyes half-open and doing something super weird with your entire body.

WTF?! I DON'T EVEN LOOK LIKE THAT IN REAL LIFE!

3. You only make phone calls when you're out of options...

4. ...and finishing the phone conversation is a whole ordeal in itself.

Am I going to be the last one to talk, or are they? I'm not going to hang up until they hang up. Hmm, I should say "Goodbye" again.

5. Saying "Goodbye" to someone in person is even worse, if that's possible.

Do I go in for a hug? Oh my god, what am I doing? Am I just going to stand here until they walk away from me? Yes, that's what I'm going to do.

6. When there's an awkward silence in a conversation, you wish you could run out of the room.

GET. ME. OUT. OF. HERE.

7. You've been caught staring at someone more times than you'd care to admit.

Oops.

8. The only dance you know how to do is the one where you keep almost running into someone on the sidewalk.

9. You look and sound like a complete MORON when you're around your crush.

You know what? I think it'd be wise if I was just never in the same room as you ever again.

10. You come off as a total asshole sometimes, but in reality you're just trying to avoid as many awkward social situations as possible.

11. You're so relieved when you get to hang out with another awkward person, because they just *get it.*

12. But it's also kind of annoying, because it's AWKWARD X AWKWARD = SUPER AWK.

13. Whenever you hear the words, "Let's go around the room," you wish you could disappear.

14. In fact, by the time it's your turn to speak, you're so nervous that you've forgotten everything you were going to say.

EVERYONE'S STARING AT ME AND I'M SO WEIRDLY AWARE THAT I'M TALKING RIGHT NOW.

15. Your "trying really hard to be nice to a stranger" face always translates to "weird and creepy."

16. You see the exact moment in someone's face when you lose their interest in a conversation, because you're such an awkward storyteller.

This is rapidly going downhill. They're grabbing their phone.

17. You have waved back at someone who wasn't waving at you countless times.

Uhh, just scratching my head!

18. Then there are other times when you accidentally ignore someone saying "Hi" to you because you think they're talking to someone else.

But you always realize right after, of course.

19. You wish you could take back, like, half the things you say.

What does that even MEAN?!

20. Every first date you've ever been on has ended like this:

That is, if you even made it to the kiss without running away after the horribly awkward hug.

That is, if you even made it to the kiss without running away after the horribly awkward hug.

21. Sure, being super awkward is painful at times, but at the end of the day it's all OK, because you know how to own it.
