Being awkward is hard because sometimes it can be mistaken for being stand-off-ish. When in reality you just don't say anything because you don't know what to say, amirite?

People often tell me I remind them of Sheldon Cooper and at first I'm like "Oh thanks!" and then I realise how much of a back handed compliment that is and I'm like http://ctrlv.in/101317

And sometimes it isn't that you can't think of what to say, it's just people aren't saying anything worth commenting on.

I always thought the being-awkward part came after the standing-there-not-saying-anything part, when you decide to open your mouth and what comes out makes no sense whatsoever, or is otherwise untoward.

When I was in middle school people thought I was stuck up because I didn't talk to them - it was really cause I was too shy.

That happens to me a lot.
