I'm so damn awkward
 | 
United Kingdom Megamo10 
My mum got a carpenter to help install a punch bag into a garage ceiling. When I'm older I will try to do everything myself, but she is constantly getting plumbers and shit...wasting money. My social interactions are so awkward. My voice is shaky. I made eye contact ok, but my mouth does the same awkward thing and I find it hard to keep still. Just feel like an idiot standing there, it's almost comedic. How to fix?

Ok but do I just go there and listen or am I meant to talk to randoms?
2020-01-25 11:43
i'd assume you wanna be a cool guy. So do like me; Go there. Get something to drink (or smoke) and try to catch the vibe from the music and people around you. Going with atleast 1 friend would be best. Its not hard to find people who might wanna go to a concert (with you). Then you just hang around and if youre lucky some people might even approach you. Theres also people hanging in the foyer so those are easy to talk to while the music is playing (can get really loud). Good luck to you
2020-01-25 11:46
with your favorite artist or something like that. Should give something to ya if you want it. u get me

meditate - it will help with negative thought, u probably have them regarding ur awkward interactions expose urself to social interactions - the more the better i am the same like you cuz i dont leave my room and dont have social interactions, but few years ago when i worked on gas station for 6 months, it was super easy to just casually talk to random people in shops or something

I'm weird too, I tend to get anxiety from phone calls. Maybe you need to find likeminded people like I have. This won't necessarily solve your problem, which is really just a matter of practice for you and me, but having people accept you in spite of your strangeness does help me.

Man, you just need confidence. If you would go out more, with friends, you can easily increase your confidence and your voice won't be so shaky. Better yet, if you get drunk or smth you won't even care about being awkward. You sound like you are far too self conscious, relax :) Life isn't out to get you. Also, a convo is not really awkward until you make it that way. e.g. thinking too much about how you act and stuff. Besides you aren't expected to talk to people all the time.. if you're doing sport, do it then laugh about it afterwards, if you're going on an outing, do whatever it is on an outing. Most of the time people don't even talk about interesting shit you know, it'll either be talking about how hot some girl is or the latest games or scores. If you feel twitchy and unsure of what to say, just shrug your shoulders, smile and do whatever you want to do lol. Don't focus too much in the moment

I know and I understand this. I tell myself this and I know it is illogical what I do, but it's like my brain is disconnected to my body and my mouth etc feels weird. It's hard to explain.
2020-01-25 11:29
Maybe you just haven't had enough going out, your lack of socialness is stopping you from going out? Just keep going, keep talking to people, both friends you know well and new people, before you know it that awkwardness will go away :) It just sounds like a confidence problem where you focus too much on yourself :P

Probably true I rarely socialise
2020-01-25 11:36
Well that won't help, and it becomes a vicious cycle when you start to feel you want to avoid social events because of your awkwardness. Keep trying to step out of your comfort zone it will be better for you! (btw I also have problems when it comes to social events, but I keep forcing myself to go when the friends I know fairly well and trust will be there so I'm not out of my depth completely :) )

Work out, lose your virginity, go out more and do small things (do groceries and order something from the butcher, go up to the mcdonalds balcony and order one ice cream, ask random shit for the people selling stuff, how much is it, blablablaba)

How to lose virginity? I'm fine with buying things and going to counters etc It's more when I'm taking to someone just to talk to them that it's awkward
2020-01-25 11:45
Go to a hooker, they have seen it all already. Go once, twice, three times if you have to, go until you feel comfortable with the act of having sex. Then you can move to Tinder (might have to work out before tho if you're too skinny/fat). Getting laid with the opposite sex is the best way to overcome what you're talking about.
2020-01-25 11:50
Actually stopping being awkward would help you lose virginity, just follow other instructions he gave you
2020-01-25 11:54
even if you dont have an aptitude for conversation, social skills can be improved just like any other skill, through reading and practice. you gotta find opportunities to talk to other people. it doesnt matter if you're twitchy, weird, and awkward if you can hold a conversation. 'how to win friends and influence people' is a book thats pretty handy for people who have literally no idea where to start when it comes to conversation. the gist of it is that people really like talking about themselves, and that you should give the person you're talking with plenty of opportunities to do so [by asking them lots of questions].

Not sure if you were serious or baiting with your post, just wanted to give you a heads up. I was in your situation when I was younger, super socially awkward and hard to talk to people. The best way (at least from my experience) is to do things outside your comfort zone. Like don't stretch it too far. Take it bit by bit. As you get more comfortable with certain things, that means your comfort zone is now bigger than before. As you understand there's a continuous effort in trying to get more comfortable in social situations. Like just start small. Try to small talk with the cashier at your local supermarket. When you are comfortable to speak with strangers, you will notice a huge difference in how you act in public. Or just try to speak with someone in class which you don't usually talk to. Just try to push your limits, that's the only way to expand your comfort zone. Hope that helps and good luck!

its called social anxiety. Just stop overthinking too much, and let yourself be like that, just accept that its okay to be a bit shaky, or you cant stand still. Its something you can get better at overtime, and 100% will. But just try to accept that its okay to do that, just let the feeling be, because the more you think about it, the harder it gets away and the worse it feels for you. But its something you will learn because you are still young, it comes with age but its called social anxiety, 1 in 5 people have it or maybe a bit less but hundreds of millions around the world have it, to some extent whether its a lot or just less. I have it too, many people have it, so youre not alone :D
