Just joined the site today. Thought I may as well make a "hi" type post.
I was actually really glad to have found this site since I am a very shy, awkward person, and I suppose seeing a site filled with people who are also like that helped me feel less alone in that.
I've realised that most of my awkwardness comes from some weird paranoia or something. For every thing that happens, I find myself thinking about the worst possible reason that it could have happened. If someone doesn't laugh at a joke, I assume that it must be because they've never found a single one of my jokes funny and have only laughed at them out of pity or because they felt they had to. If someone doesn't respond to me, I assume it's because they hate me and have only ever pretended to like me.
Because of this, I'm bad at talking to people, continuing conversations, and I'm just plain incapable of starting conversations. If I want to, every single possible conversation topic I come up with is really stupid for one reason or another.
As such, I don't spend an awful lot of time socialising. I have friends at school who I talk to, but the second I'm out of school, I very rarely talk to them. I don't really do anything outside of school either, so I don't get to talk to people much that way.

But still, even if that was a bit depressing, uh, hey everyone. o/
