20 GIFs To Describe What Being Awkward Is Really Like

I have perfected the art of being awkward. I don’t know why I can’t be cool Jessica, who always says the right thing, who doesn’t always do things that make everyone around her uncomfortable… but I just can’t. Ask anyone who knows me: I am an awkward person – and I’ve finally learned to be fine with it.

But being awkward is… well, awkward. The positives? It makes life interesting and hilarious almost all the time. I have a lot of embarrassing stories that bring much amusement to my friends and family. The negatives? I almost always look like total doof.

For anyone who can totally relate to me, this post is for you. This is what being awkward is really like, explained in GIFs:

 

Whenever I do anything social, ever, it’s like:

    My friend was interducing me to this guy I like and she got my name wrong! If thats not bad enough when I’m in a awkward state I tell jokes. And I said this gay joke and he was like OH BOY. Like ewwww. But at the end of the day or a couple days later he asked about me!

    Lol. I like the one where she’s brushing her hair with a fork.. I hit my crush in the face once. We were on the bus and he kept tickling me, and I spazz out really bad when I’m tickled and I kept telling him to stop. He didn’t. I spazzed and elbowed him in the nose… Well.. I told him to stop. No one else saw thankfully but I felt so bad. He was okay though.

    I’m totally an awkward person and I can totally relate to the one where you hit your crush in the face… omg it was in front of nearly the 2 entire classes of 40-50 people and i did one of my signature “big” gestures and I smacked him in the nose and i was mortified. Luckily he being the guy he is just shook it off and laughed (he was not hurt), but right before he did, the gif was totally the look on my face! I could not believe it had happened! anyways we are still pretty great friends so I’m happy! :)
