Are you are social dweeb?

Being an introvert can be really hard sometimes, often people don't understand me or maybe that's just me being my typical over analytical self. When I get invited to parties I often feel a little bit stressed, even if it's with people I love to be around. I fret over what to wear, who will be there, when to leave, you get the hint. Basically I become a human slinky. If social outings come out of the blue, that's when things go a little haywire and I get a little too frazzled. Although I always make it a habit of saying yes to things, as I adore my friends and those of my boyfriend's dearly. I do not want them thinking otherwise.

My lack of social confidence and shyness is definitely something I need to work on this year. What do you do when you feel like a social dweeb?


  1. i used to be a social dweeb haha. i used to play with my phone if i felt awkward. but now i just talk to random people at the party. it definitely helped me get over my shyness :)

    love your blog! :)

  2. Thanks for the tip, I think that's a really good idea. Often I have the best conversations with strangers, I should just push myself :)

  3. I know how you feel. I am am a complete intovert but with a bit of confidence no one would ever know. I just copy the behaviour of confident friends. I feel exhausted at the end of the night though.

    great blog btw

  4. Thanks for posting this. It's good to know I'm not alone in social dweebdom. I think my bad social skills/ self consciousness stems from being an only child.

    I totally do the phone thing, but I get sooooo embarrassed if people look over my should and see I'm on facebook/twitter or playing games, ooops.

    My BF is the total opposite, he doesn't get why I even care. Sometimes, if I have the energy I 'fake it & make it'. I pretend to be confident and chatty and often it gets me past the awkward moments.

  5. I think a lot of people have the same problem so we shouldn't worry :) Good to see others who feel the same way. Fake it & make it is a good mantra!

  6. i fret over party invitations too, i'm so awkward! the idea of small talk just makes me really anxious, one of my new year's resolutions is to be better at the small talk thing haha not so sure where to start


Thank you for leaving Lola a message ♥
