I am social awkward myself and I do not give a shit what society thinks of my behavior. We ( my future boyfriend and I) could be socially awkward together and not give a shit what society thinks of us. As long as we have each other, that is great enough because all that matters is the bond we share with one another not what other people think. That is shallow not to date someone cuz they do not fit into society. Yes, I have had boys in middle not want to date me in middle school cuz I was socially awkward but I did not care anymore cuz I like older men now and I get hella men even though I am socially awkward cuz my looks and my other personality traits with them over, the men do not care if I am socially awkward. So now that I have preached enough. It is shitty to not date someone cuz they are socially awkward so what, it is the person that matters not how they act or what society think of them.
Not sure anymore. I tried dating some very socially awkward and shy girls in the past, and it usually seems like there's a high percentage that they are actually somewhat insane when you get to know them better. Usually the isolation from the social world leaves them with weird ideas about romance, insecurities about themselves, etc.
Confidence from a man is key, look at the ladies responses? I wouldn't. I don't need a complete extrovert, but it's just not that appealing to me being with someone socially awkward. I don't want to have to fight, figuratively speaking, to get her out of her shell.
I have my fiance is very socially awkward my fiance has been through a few things grown up and in past relationships so that has made her very socially awkward so she would just rather stay home watch a movie and order pizza then go out somewhere but it all depends on you and how socially awkward they are and if you could Dell with their social awkwardness
Sure. As long as that someone is aware that social skills are also a skill to be trained aka they want to improve to handle social situations better. But I don't mind the girl being a weirdo. I am myself, so thats fine.
I'm pretty sure I'm socially awkward, even a close friend I had for 10 years and her sister told me I was awkward.
I still have a boyfriend though, I don't think he really minds about my awkwardness.
I'm not sure if he would be considered socially awkward or not too, since though he has friends in real life, most are just people on Xbox he talks to; and before we started going out he'd tell me I was his best friend (despite the fact we hadn't seen each other in 2-3 years and would only talk on fb and Skype at the time). He's pretty weird in a lot of ways but that just makes him more interesting to me, he's definitely better at talking in person or on Skype than in text though - In text he mostly just puts stuff like "U ok", "Ok", "Ok then", "Yh", "Oh", "Hows u" and "Wot u up to" and this will often be the extent of conversation.
In person his speech seems to flow better and more naturally. Perhaps we are both a bit awkward in ways, I know we are certainly both a bit weird but I don't mind about that, I don't think I could be with anyone too normal anyway.
If he is considered awkward I'm still not sure he's as awkward as me and even if he was, at least I'd be able to relate. I find it sort of sweet when people are awkward sometimes anyway, somehow they seem a bit more trustworthy but that could just be me.
Probably not. I get tired of guessing if they're enjoying themselves or if they're happy or sad or uncomfortable. I need feedback. I need warmth. I need someone to take the reins every now and then and lead the way. Otherwise I get tired and feel like I'm doing all the work to keep things moving and fresh.
