Talking to girls you don’t know is awkward. It doesn’t matter who you are.
Then again, my awkward girl-related stories have a repuation. I recently broke up with a (super awesome and definitely missed but ultimately incompatible-with-me (I learned that “incompatible” doesn’t have to mean “we fight a lot”)) girlfriend I had for about 10 months, and multiple friends expressed their condolences, but said they were kind of excited that they get to hear awkward girl-related stories again.
Seriously – did you see that sentence I just wrote? That’s the sort of thing that happens inside my brain when I try to express thoughts. Normally I can correct for it when I speak, but when I am confronted with the additional pressure and emotional turmoil involved in speaking to someone I think is cute, things don’t come out so smoothly.
Here are the ground rules:
- I swear to you I am not doing this on purpose or disrespectfully. This website is about things I say in earnest to people I like and who I want to like me. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way.
- I’m not making any of this stuff up. Truth is more awkward than fiction.
In addition to the best of the awkward things I say on a weekly basis to girls, I’ll be blogging old classics (I’ve got some winners from high school and college that are pretty enjoyable), and if I get really motivated, I have a feature-length girl-related Awkward Adventure just begging to be serialized. Expect great things.
Anyway, whether you’re laughing at or with me, or you’re commisserating with the poor, innocent girls I try to talk to, I hope you enjoy the blog.
