I'm not even gonna bullshit, I was exactly the same OP.
Lmao, I was a fucking loser all through out my teen years because of this, I lived in my head and didn't realize it until I graduated how detached I was from what mainstream teenagers were doing :(
Follow the advice listed in this thread; learning to wear makeup (you'll fuck up a lot before you learn how to beat your face correctly :p), dressing well (you don't have to look fashionable, just learn how to look put together, that's what matters), eating right and ultimately watching news/keeping up with current events.
I also read blogs/articles, popular magazines and listen to interesting podcasts.
Things like this you can share with strangers and not have them give you a strange look. :p >>58269
I get what you mean, I'm a weirdo and instead of being ashamed I always take note of where I fucked up and try to improve myself next time around.>>58279
Right, most of my friends are pretty artsy/book worm types. I feel like they're much more understanding compared to full on stacies >>58282
Honestly this only works for attractive people, for below average people you need a nice personality or else people will be put off by your weirdness.>>58383
True, I went from being mute to being able to hold up conversations with strangers it's all about practice :)
I hope things turn out well for you OP, remember there are others like you out there, trying to do the exact same thing, take it day by day.
