We share a class together and i really want to talk to them again. It's been 3 years since i ended the friendship for the stupidest reason. We really had a close good friendship by the last months we were friends. We had bonded so much. I never told them why i broke it off but we never unfollowed each other on social media. They actually still watch my stories on snapchat. Sometimes we make eye contact in class too. From what i heard of them is when i broke it off i made them upset to the point where they cried about it but i also heard that they haven't held any grudges. It's been so long so i'm sure they've moved on. I know over time i've actually become more awkward, i feel that when i talk to new people what makes me awkward is not knowing how long to look into their eyes and i get all awkward with eye contact. Or if they're looking into my eyes. I guess i'm self conscious like i think they think i'm weird or don't like me, how long they pause and then reply back. Their tone or enthusiasm. So i've become awkward over time. I usually tend to look away fast and down when someone tries talking to me. I answer and look down because i don't know what to say! and feel awkward and i hate it! Sometimes i try smiling and my face just slips, my smile just falls apart and i try to hold it up but it literally falls apart. In class sometimes my teacher puts us into random groups to do projects and i'm sure there's at least 3 more projects before school's over. So if we get put into groups what do i say to her? How do i start talking to her? What things can i talk to her about once it's lifted off? When do i bring up the "why we broke up" subject? how can i get over being a socially awkward person? PLEASE HELP?
