    These are the typical traits of someone who is socially awkward:

    You have few or no friends.

    You find yourself left out in social groups.

    You prefer to not talk to people.

    When you have to talk to someone, you analyse what you are going to say and do.

    You have been told that you're bad at socialising/interpreting body language.


    I'm just going to point out that being introverted is not the same as being socially awkward. Social awkwardness is characterised by simply not knowing what you are doing wrong.
    I fit into all of those categories

    I guess I'm socially awkward.

    Ah, don't worry about it. The ingrained idea that you're socially awkward is what causes most social awkwardness anyway. If you are socially awkward, you'll grow out of it.
