Awkward Girls Are Sexy

If you’ve ever met me in person, you will have noticed one thing: I’m awkward. It’s not that I’m painfully shy, either — I’m just strange. I think differently, I have a different way I go about things and usually, people don’t “get” me. But it’s actually not so bad, and for anyone willing to give the awkward girl a chance, I think you’ll find that very sexy in our own way:

  1. We’re loyal AF. Awkward girls might not always say the right thing, but we’ll always be there for you when crap hits the fan. No matter who comes onto us, we’re there for the one we love, 100%. This is because awkward girls have been duped, dumped and abandoned more than a typical girl. Since we know how much it hurts, we aren’t going to do it to others.
  2. We’re honest about how we feel. It’s not hard to tell when someone who’s awkward likes you. We blush, we stammer, we say the worst possible thing at the worst possible time. At the very least, you never have to worry where you stand with us.
  3. Behind every awkward person is a beautiful story. There’s a reason that Hollywood is into awkward, cute people. We almost always have amazing stories to tell, and always have glittering, one-of-a-kind personalities that make us awesome. Give us a chance and you’ll be enchanted with us.
  4. Socially awkward people tend to be more intelligent. It’s a trope for a reason. We tend to be more bookish, and tend to be able to fix problems others can’t. That’s why most people who are awkward tend to be highly admired in their fields.
  5. We’re creative where it counts. If you’re looking for someone who can give you a unique spin on romance, date someone who is socially awkward. We’re often dreamers who come up with amazing ways to show our love.
  6. We tend to be crazy in bed. Once you get us comfortable, we’ll most likely show you that we have some pretty wild fantasies in bed. As long as you’re patient with us, you’ll be able to enjoy being the guy who we act out our fantasies with.
  7. Dating awkward women is a surefire way to make sure you take the lead. Because let’s be honest here, we’re going to need to rely on you to tell us what to do in a social setting.
  8. Awkward girls tend to be very trusting. We need to trust the guy we’re with, because we often can’t read between the lines. So while this can open awkward women up to scumbags, for the right guy, it can mean a lot fewer headaches. No one wants to have to explain themselves every day, after all.
  9. We’ll go the extra mile. When you’re awkward, you usually will get passed up for the next girl who is more “acceptable” in the eyes of society. When you’re the lucky guy who dates an awkward girl, you can expect her to be all the more determined to fight for you, please you and be there for you – simply because she knows you understand her value.
