Most socially awkward person ever…

Hi So we can all be socially awkward at times like waving at a person who wasn’t waving at you or mispronouncing a word which resulted in you saying something really dirty.

Well I’m going to share some of my most awkward social situations!

My change of voice.

Whenever I meet new people and they appeal to me, my voice can drastically change, for example if they said something funny I would laugh extra hard and it would be so high that you could tell it was a fake laugh from a mile away, I just can’t help myself. Sometimes I can also try to sound cool by mimicking their way of speech as much as possible, I would use the same swear words or I could agree with absolutely everything they say even if it was something I disagreed with immensely, I would be fuming inside but smiling on the outside.

Mumbling.

If I met an over-confident person for the 1st time I would have difficulty speaking to them as I’m quite shy and everyone I’m friends with are not that confident. So I would be startled and get super nervous which would lead to me mumbling every single word that comes out of my mouth a bit like Johnny Depp in his interviews. ( No hate on Johnny Depp, I’m a big fan of his) So you can imagine the great conversations I must have (!)

I started volunteering about a month ago and for the 1st three weeks I could not bring myself to say “thank you have a nice day” to the costumers, I could do and say everything else fine but that sentence was a nightmare! I could only mumble it very quietly like a dying mouse.

My accent

As I have an accent it is sometimes hard for people to understand me especially with my difficulty of saying English Rs. Well since I have been living in England 70% of times I told someone by name they could not understand!  One of my worst memories with my name was when I had to introduce myself to a girl and when she heard my name she just said “I seeee”in such an awkward way that I could tell that she didn’t understand it, this left me blushing and there was a long silence between us. I could tell that she knew I knew.It was super embarrassing, luckily I never saw her again 🙂

Speaking of names one of my volunteers work partners started calling me Emily! (which is not my name of course) I have never told her my name and I havent had the courage to tell her my real name to avoid awkwardness at all costs! But I know the day will come when she’ll call me Emily in front of other volunteers… NOOO 😦

I hope this made you cringe. I know I have while writing this post! What a great way to get to  know me in my 1st proper post(!)  I might do a part 2 of this in the future as I have more stories to tell about my social awkwardness. Do you have any awkward stories?

Adios!

  1. The thing that makes me feel most awkward is small talk in shops. Whenever anyone says “Are you ok there?”, I just think “I was until you started this conversation” and then slowly walk away….
    I guess everyone has their little quirks don’t they 😂

  2. I don’t have a ton of awkward moments these days, but when I do, they suck! This past weekend I was watching a child who spent the night with my son and I had to meet some of his family members while his mom was out of town, I couldn’t even make eye contact with them because I wasn’t sure how to feel about them or what they would be like..it was super weird! ha!

  3. Hahahaha I can relate to so much of what you described! I’m awful about introducing myself; I either say it too quietly so that the person has to verify what I said, and others don’t hear me and get it wrong. It’s so awkward 🙈 another great quirk of mine is that I’m very comfortable around my family, with strangers I’m usually mildly talkative but still quite reserved, and then with friends and acquaintances I get really tongue-tied. It’s strange!

    1. I also often feel like it’s easier talking to strangers than acquaintances, it doesn’t matter if you say something wrong because there is a chance that you’ll never see them again. The human brain works in a strange way doesn’t it.

    1. Hahaha oh nooo that made me laugh! When I used to live in France in my area people would either give 1 kiss on each cheek or 1 kiss on one. I always went for two so when some evil people went for 1 it used to be so awkward😂
