I'm completely awkward from being a NEET shut in for years. I barely talk to people and I don't know how to read body language or social cues. To top that off I'm aware of how pathetic and backwards I am, which only makes me more nervous and awkward.
You ain't alone there are a lot of people like this.
Im awkward as fuck. The worst thing is that my awkwardness made me develop social anxiety and now Im stuck in a vicious cycle, Im always anxious that I might do something awkward but the anxiety then makes me act weird and awkward. It has gone better over the past few years though.
>>26229235 happened today >prof tells us she emailed us assigned groups >she continues talking about the course >we are supposed to answer online questions on some website >cannot find the course name with her as the teacher >she brings up question from said site and tells us to do it >after waiting 5 minutes I decide to go up and ask her for help just as she starts teaching again >fuck me I already started cant sit back down without looking like and autist >proceed to ask her for tech support with 100 students watching me >gives up after 30 seconds talking on mic >sit back down this shit is a regular occurrence for me
Me. At my job I do ok (secretary) until shit goes off-script, then I'm screwed. I can't look people in the eyes for more than a few seconds at best, even my mom. The worst part is that in college classes people assume I'm normal and talk to me like I'm normal but after an interaction or two they get this look on their face and don't want to be around me. I feel broken on a fundamental level, I have no friends, I can't socialize normally, and I will never be socially competent
I used to be so fucking awkward and still feel that way inside but after practising all the time, I'm very good at masking it although what still gets me sometimes is speaking to people, I sometimes mumble or jumble my words.
The main thing to do first, PLEASE DO THIS FOR ME is to try to make your face at least neutral. Since starting to change my persona I've become very aware of the miserable or sour faces so many people pull, sometimes naturally (mine own is a natural bastard face thanks to my brow). Make an effort to have your face not seem so sour, it just puts people off you, even if you look good. but don't look too friendly either, a neutral face is always good.
Another thing, this is for the men, STOP walking like a bunch of fucking cuckbois. There's so much shit you can tell from the way a person walks and the amount of guys I see walking slow bouncy timid walks is annoying as fuck. If you're ever wondering why people make fun of you or think you're someone they can start on if it's a group - it's THAT, you look like a timid pushover fuck.
Walk at a good speed so you look like you've shit to do, it also helps you appear less timid and afraid if you're walking towards a group you think might say something and overall it just looks better.
Just fake it until you make it, everybody does it, everyone is acting to some degree. It'll take practice though.

This is a good point. I walk like this, very timid with my head down, and everyone always picks up on it. They give you weird looks, like a mix of judgmental and pity. They just know you're a timid fuckhead because of your body language.
I'm an awkward autist who rarely leaves the house. NEET shut in ever since high school, which ended four years ago.
The only time I actually interact with others is when I go to pick up my meds from the pharmacy (my parents don't want to do it for me anymore), and thats just telling them my name and birthday. I struggle even with that.
Also where the fuck do you think you are? This is /r9k/ everyone here is awkward, even the "normies" trying to troll are awkward virgins.
>>26229350 try shaking it up with something a anxiolytic substance like phenibut. if you break the anxiety for a minute you can peek outside the cycle >>26229576 you sound like a decent guy that's trapped by poor socialization
>>26230234 Bad but not as bad as timid, head held down, mumbling shy fuck. If you're going to be autistic you might as well powerwalk and let it be outwardly known. It's worse being shy and timid and just knowing people are quietly judging you or wanting to fuck with you.
>>26230030 >try shaking it up with something a anxiolytic substance like phenibut. if you break the anxiety for a minute you can peek outside the cycle I would but its pretty difficult to get any nootropics in my country. Alcohol makes me stop being both anxious and awkward which makes me feel like my problems at this point stem mostly from my lack of confidence.
