The Social Awkwardness Test

Are you truly socially awkward? Or are you simply pretending to be awkward, since Zooey Deschanel and Emma Stone made it cool? Find out for sure by taking this test!

THE (ACTUALLY) SOCIALLY AWKWARD TEST

by Veronica Park

A. Give yourself ONE awkward point (each) if…

1. When you wore a dress to school, you had to wear shorts underneath it…

2. All the way until 9th grade…

3. Because your mom made you…

4. But also because you tend to trip and fall down a lot.

Note: If you have 2+ points by now, you MIGHT be actually socially awkward.

B. Give yourself ONE awkward point (each) if…

1. You ever had a “made up” long-distance boyfriend…

2. So that the skeevy guys at the bar would stop hitting on you…

3. But people didn’t believe you that he was real…

4. So you got “engaged”…

5. Bought yourself a fake engagement ring…

6. But that seemed a little too extreme…

7. So you devised an elaborate story about how you had to break up with him because he was too committed to his mother…

8. But then everyone assumed that you were making that up, not because he wasn’t real, but because he was the one who probably dumped you.

Note: If you have 6+ points by now, there’s a good chance that you’re probably a little bit awkward.

C. Give yourself ONE awkward point (each) if…

1. You ever gave yourself a haircut or a dye job…

2. And it did not go well…

3. So you went to the salon to fix it…

4. And because you were so embarrassed and ashamed, you pretended like you’d gotten the cut / dye job at a different salon…

5. Then the stylist asked you the name of the salon, and you were like, uhhhh…

6. And you made one up on the spot…

7. And the stylist started telling everyone else in the salon about it…

8. And by some insane twist of fate, it turns out that “Hair-Something” is an ACTUAL salon, and one of the other stylists’ friends works there. And you are SO busted.

Note: If you have 10+ points by now, you are DEFINITELY socially awkward.

But guess what, my awkward friend? Unless you have 20 points by now, you are STILL not as awkward as me.
