Yes painfully so I must say. Sometimes because I don't realize that what I have said is strange or inappropriate until I see the other person's reaction to what I have just said. Sometimes just because I really freakin hate small talk
I am.. painfully awkward. But I'm sure I hide it too well that it just becomes cold and maybe deadening. I am not all of this if 1. I am caught off guard on a tired-moody day (will be very direct and just the right amount of blunt) and 2. if it's a person I naturally feel comfortable with. I am the ultimate awkward turtle in group things. I also love me some extroverts because of all the natural leading they do. WOOTWOOT extroverts.
I feel extremely socially awkward...but from the outside I think people just tend to perceive me as an arrogant bastard.
I shut down my brain by my wish. Its funny, walking and talking like a robot for a couple of hours... but it works.
the important thing is, let not your brain work... I tend to become nervous and angry, if there is a long time between knowledge of the social stuff and the stuff itself. If you want me to a party, invite me the same day. or maybe 10 minutes before, I am there... but ask me a week ago, I say yes, but then I realize, that I have not the wish to participate ;D
In a word, yes lol
Although right now it's hard to determine what's just my personality and what's my SAD talking, but overall I know I am pretty shy which leads my me being awkward. My worst nightmare is being left to have small talk with someone I've just been introduced too. I loathe small talk and I suck at it
I am quite talkative with friends though, when I can just talk without having to reformulate my thoughts into something more understandable or worry about sounding strange...which I know do. a lot haha
I'm awkward with a big "A". I've learned not to try and tell jokes or be clever because it never comes out the way I thought it but is heard as inappropriate or insensitive.
What's worse is I write the same way, even though I can reread it numerous times. It seems I can only read it as I thought it, and not as others might construe it. I find it all very discouraging.....
I love my pets, they don't care how clumsy I am!

incredibly awkward to the point where I can't start or end conversations (except with those few close people)
the only time I talk to other people is when I have to ask a question,
I ask it as if I need the answer so I can proceed doing what I was doing, then I thank them and go back to my work....
it takes either a very understanding person or a very persistent person to actually have a conversation with me face to face
I'm pretty much socially inept. A book is a really good weapon to buffer the awkwardness.
