” Drawing from my experience as a social confidence coach, I want to explain the characteristics of socially awkward people and help you comprehend if you are socially awkward or not, as well as show you what to do about it.

They don’t know how is it OK to start a conversation, what conversation topics is it best to talk about and when, or what is it suited to joke about and what is it not. It’s common for socially awkward people to joke about something and others to find the joke uncalled for, or to try and give a compliment, only for it to come off in a distasteful way.
This mismatch is a sign of a deficiency of social calibration. But for socially awkward people, this is the rule, not the exception. If others actively try to dodge interactions with you, or they often mock you during them, they probably see you as the weird person in the group. Since they struggle with making conversation, feeling at ease around others and expressing themselves effectively, socially awkward people typically lack strong connections with others.
If you want to discover exactly how you can do this, make sure you watch my social confidence presentation.
Fortunately, overcoming social awkwardness is absolutely possible, no matter who you are.
