18 Signs You’re Too Awkward To Function

Thought Catalog

1. Greetings and goodbyes are panic attack-inducing situations for you. Do you shake hands? Hug? Wave? It always ends up being some painfully janky combination of the three.

2. The concept of “dating” is more or less lost to you. In your mind, if you don’t turn into a stage five clinger, you never really liked them that much anyway.

3. You never know what to do with your hands.

4. You end up having to explain your jokes to people when they don’t laugh, thus rendering them even less funny than they started out with.

5. You always forget people’s names and would rather run away from the conversation than have to ask again, so you’ve become a pro at roundabout methods of figuring it out. “How do you pronounce that…?”

6. You find yourself apologizing for everything you say even if there’s no reason at all to apologize. It’s like you’re apologizing for…

20 Little Things ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Fans Know To Be True

Thought Catalog

How I Met Your Mother

1. Nothing good ever happens after 2 AM. Usually, you make the most stupid decisions in the most unholy hour. So if you find yourself contemplating on something on the wee hours of the morning, you better sleep it off. You’ll find that you make better decisions in the morning.

2. There is always someone out there for you. You may not meet him today, tomorrow, or the next day; but somehow, you’ll find the right one for you. Sometimes, people fall in love in the most unexpected ways, and you might find yourself falling for that person you never intended to.

3. There is no such thing as destiny. You make your own choices in life, and these choices will affect your future. How you want that to be–whether happy or sad–is entirely up to you.

4. You don’t always end…

I Wrote This Instead Of Texting You Back

Thought Catalog

I only hear from you on weekends.

On Saturday, you’ll text me something pointless, something that didn’t need to be said. I used to tell myself it was because you had been thinking of me and wanted to reach out. I’ll reply to acknowledge receipt of your message (and because I had obviously been thinking of you too, even before you texted me), and you’ll reply with a one-word response that immediately kills whatever potential our conversation had. I try to shrug it off and go out with my friends, using alcohol and dancing as a way to rid you from my thoughts. I accept the free drinks from strangers (even when they buy me something gross like a gin and tonic, something we had once bonded over not liking), because the more alcohol in my system, the more I would dance; and the more I would dance, the less…

I’m Letting My Wife Go

Seth Adam Smith

I’m sure it may come as a shock to some people, but I let my wife go. It was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do, but it was the right thing for the both of us.

Kim and Seth WeddingNo, we’re not getting a divorce and no, we’re not separating. Truth be told, the practice of “letting go” has actually brought us closer together. But in order to understand what I mean by “letting go,” you must first understand that Kim and I are two very different people.

In fact, the differences between us were Kim’s primary concern with us getting married. “Seth, a fish may love a bird,” she said. “But where would they live?”*

I smiled at the comparison because it’s fairly accurate.

Kim and I are incredibly different people. She’s the oldest in her family; I’m the youngest in mine. She’s very responsible; I’m…very much not. She…
