I love how everybody is ‘awkward’ these days like it’s the thing to be. Thanks to hipster culture, ‘awkward’ has become the thing to be and strive for, and it is disgusting and silly. I’m sorry, but making asinine comments, falling over for no reason, and feigning disinterest does not make you awkward. It makes you an asinine asshole. Truly awkward people are socially maladjusted, but not by choice. When they lean against a wall, heads lowered, or slouch in a chair, it is done sincerely. There is no pretense of cool.
Please, stop pretending to be awkward. You are more than capable of holding a slightly intelligible conversation while making eye contact. You are more than capable of walking without stumbling. You are not different, sorry.
