Do you know Zooey Deschanel of New Girl? How about Lindsey Lohan in Mean Girls? Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings? Logan Lerman in the Perks of Being a Wallflower? Nat Wolf of Paper Towns? Or do you know someone who would dance out of the blue and say something you don’t expect? If you do, then you will know what I’m talking about why awkward is sexy.

People often think that being socially awkward is a bad thing and disastrous but in reality it’s adorable. Awkward people tend to be more approachable. For example, what would you do if you bumped into Julie Andrew’s beauty and angelic voice? I think it’s a little bit intimidating to you and be terrified but if you bumped into Lady Gaga, yeah, I just know you both could kick it on your couch and do weird impressions together with her dogs, horse, and probably with her chickens in her mansion in California.

1. Awkward people have better dance moves.
