Some people are cool awkward some people are annoying awkward just depends on the person


I don’t trust people who aren’t just a little bit awkward. If you show no small sign of awkwardness, I see you as fake.


Idk about endearing lmao people don’t see it as that at all


Also, when you self-flagellate for it, it tends to increase awkward behaviors whereas owning it actually tends to reduce it. Often awkward behavior comes from anxiety. When people beat themselves up for saying weird things or not knowing what to do, anxiety pattern increases and it self-perpetuates. I like the internal coaching of “well that was weird, oh well, who cares.” To help move past it.
