Dating is the new awkward
Don’t depress yourself by constantly trying to fit into some other person’s mold of beautiful. If you don’t like something about yourself, go ahead and change it, but don’t do it for anyone except yourself. They’re so awkward that it becomes part of who they are.And when you're dating an awkward girl, there are a lot of things you need to get used to.The unusual thing that started happening, though, is that while I thought these were weird deal breakers, they actually started attracting the opposite sex.I’d think, “Ummm no, you can’t be attracted to this disaster; I’m a monster.” But the reaction was that my behavior was “endearing,” “funny” or “down to earth.”How odd.Now that I’m an adult, I have outgrown my insecure teenage complexes and am truly happy in my own skin; although, I am still awkward as f*ck. Inevitably, I’d end up sneezing -- sometimes six times in a row -- or realize I had dipped my sleeve into my food.
Awkward people understand what it's like to be awkward, and there's nothing better than having a BFF who totally understands what you're going through on a daily basis, especially if it's understanding without judgment.It's always exciting to start a new relationship, but we often forget about the ridiculously awkward parts that accompany that just-started-dating period.So if you recently started seeing someone new, you might want to prepare yourself for these uncomfortable moments that you're bound to encounter within the first few months. You have no idea if it's the right time to add him on Facebook. You probably had a million chances to have this chat, but somehow it always gets brushed off until that fateful moment when an outsider drops the “boyfriend” or “girlfriend” bomb before either of you did. I remember being 14 years old and attempting that perfect mirror selfie with my friend.We would have photo shoots for our profile pictures (you did it at some point, too) and my friend would effortlessly paint on a smoky eye, push her hair over to the side of her face, bite her lip and snap a photo of herself pretending to look at something in the corner.
It can feel to an awkward girl as if her body is entirely separate from her.
