yep i almost always do, but i’ve never been outgoing.  part of it is just that i’m an introverted person and i don’t like to talk about myself but sometimes i do have anxiety about social situations/the awkwardness i percieve to be involved

@Vikstar:  

It could be an anxiety issue that you can talk to a therapist about, especially since you said that you used to be outgoing.

@Vikstar:  I have the exact same problem. Group therapy really did wonders for me though. It took everyone else saying “What? You’re not awkward.” and “I always feel awkward too.” for me to realize that it was just something that I percieved myself to be. I have my moments, but now I try to just live and not wonder what others think about me.

@Vikstar: Always and forever… I’m starting to turn into a hermit because the only people I don’t feel awkward around are on the other side of the world. I used to be really outgoing too and sometimes I can get into the mood for it but I lose energy really fast and then feel awkward again and just want to go home.

I’m really thankful that Fiance is a bit of a homebody as well and not an avid partier.

I’ve always been awkward around people I don’t know or aren’t comfortable with.  I kind of just read the title of your post and went “ooo!  awkward!  I’m good at that!”

@Bebealways:  It’s definitely tough to be an introvert in a world that prizes extroversion.

@lashphi: I completely agree about the world prizing extroversion.  Never thought of it that way before, but you’re 100% right

Word! I always feel like people are staring at and judging me. It’s usually just when I’m by myself though, like when I’m out running errands. I’m really pathetic though because I feel that way mostly around people my age and even highschool age kids (I’m 26). Like…highschool age kids are just that…kids. Why do I care what they think?

However, when I’m with friends or especially Darling Husband, I’m all “hheeeyyy! Check me out! I don’t give a f*** what you think about me!”
