Are you ready to get the feels? As human beings on this planet, being socially awkward is something we’ve all experienced at some point; dancing at weddings, doing a presentation to your whole school or being near people making out MASSIVELY in public. But don’t worry, you’re not alone in your awkwardness because we’ve all been there.
