I am a socially awkward person. I just don't know how to function around people so I come off as stand offish because I usually just wont say any thing. It doesn't mean I don't like who ever I'm with, I just have no idea how to interact with them. After spending time with said person/people it gets better and I become less awkward as I get to know them.
I love trying new things. I live by a rule that I will try any thing at least once. More if I find it to be pleasing.
