Oh, the awkward extrovert. The Bambi of extroverts. I can personally attest to how difficult it is to make a good first impression on somebody because of this awful combination.
But I also attest that it makes for the best kind of person after you get past the initial encounter. Simply because: the awkward extrovert doesn’t have it easy. Here are 9 struggles of being the awkward extrovert.
- You’ve messed up your chances for awesome extrovert encounters because you basically forget how to talk like a human. You can't even understand what comes out of your mouth half the time. But you promise it all made sense in your head.
- You find solace as the wallflower. You can’t mess anything up as the wallflower, and you’re still in a room full of people, right?
- Wrong. Your awkwardness has affected your wallflower-ness many times. Mostly when you drop something, break something, trip on something, or just breathe.
- You’ve hung around people you know you’ve weirded out, cause, well, extrovert time. Both parties are equally uncomfortable, but you need to get your fix.
- Did I mention you basically forget how to talk? Oops, forgot that I did. You’ve forgotten what you’ve said and didn’t say and have repeated yourself SO MANY TIMES.
- People think you are REALLY quiet when they first meet you. Oh honey, just wait till you open up this awkward can o’ worms. You can NOT put that stuff back.
- You have a small group of close friends. Simply because your awkwardness scared everyone else off. Just kidding…
- You cannot pick up men, no matter how hard you try. And you have tried (Or at least, in your head you have. That went so bad you even cringed).
- Your awkwardness is a running joke. But at least you’re the center of attention!
Awkward Extroverts unite! *Fails at a high five* Whoo!
