me too i really feel awkward around boy/s, i always have this feeling that i like them. lahat na lang ata ng medyo nagiging close sakin nagiging crush ko. i don't know why i feel that way.  :( i have 2 male barkada but i can't totally say that we are close unlike my girl barkada. maybe i need to get used with hanging around guys more.  ;)

come to think of it , most of my friends are girls din , or kung may friends man ako na guys semi din gets? may pagka GAY din kumbaga lol.. pero I have friends naman din na straight , may mga boys na madali lang kausap eh .. hindi naman lahat mahirap kausapin unless na lang lagyan mo malice lahat ng boys na kausap mo..  ;) be comfortable with them , enjoy din yan sila kasama kasi walang halong drama unlike girls

I belong to this thread. Awkward talaga when i'm with boys. Siguro kasi due to past experiences with boys. Pero mas awkward talaga pag andyan yung crush mo di ka makatiningin sa mata.

Mahahalata rin na crush ko ang isang guy kasi 'di ako makatitig sa kanya nang matagal.

it gets ackward only for me when they show interest other than friendship i can offer...yun i don't know how to handle this situation anymore...usually i clammed up & distance myself....

....and i need to change that because i eventually lost them...:(

same here sis..pero dati i really don't feel at ease when im around boys nung highschool tinutukso nga ako na katabi ko lang daw kilala ko. when i was in college nag-iba na kasi i took up engineering kung aarte-arte ka, lalamya-lamya at di makikipagsabayan sa kanila baka di ka magtagal. sobra kasi maglokohan at mag-asaran sa engineering dun ako nag-loosen up at mas naging at ease mas madali na makitungo sa kanila as long as they don't show interest, dun lang ako nagiging awkward, like you i don't know how to handle it but im good in masking my real emotions but deep inside amfufu  ;D
I used to have an open mind but my brains kept falling out. :P

I guess it goes with age?  Mas wala kang pakialam, mas hindi awkward?

I grew up kasi having a sister lang, wala akong lalaki ka kapatid.  Wala din akong lalaking friends.  Kaya ang hirap nga makitungo sa guys. Friends ko actually lahat babae.

So just be yourself.  Kung may gusto sa iyo, eh ano ngayon, wala ka naman gusto sa kanya.  Kung crush mo, eto parang mahirap.  Practice practice practice lang siguro - practice your smile sa mirror, practice your facial expressions, your mannerisms, the way you walk, hanggang sa maging confident ka na. Tama ba?  Di ko din alam, ito lang ang naiisip kong approach para di ka ma-conscious.

^at first I felt awkward when I left highschool (all girls) to College (co-ed). But then I realized na tao din sila. LOL. Sometimes, it's not the boy, your crush that makes you awkward. It's the constant taunting of your friends/classmates. Gumagawa na ang sambayanan ng issue kahit wala pa. Awkward na. Ilang na tuloy agad. I hope the madlang people would let love stories grow muna before asarin sila. But that's human nature I guess..  :)

Try to mingle w them as often as possible to lessen that awkward feeling you get with them. About the topics. HAHA! I dont think it is something i can say, "just go with the flow". If they start a topic, try to say your thoughts without highlighting your different genders. HTH! ;)

Rule #1 Dont get intimidated just because they're boys. Talk to them like they're just one of your girlfriends, minus all the arte tone/words/phrase. Guys hate that.


Rule #2 Dont think too much. Wag mo masyadong isipin na porket nagssmall talk sayo si guy, may gusto na agad siya sayo. Yun kasi ang magpapailang sayo, pag nagfeeling ka and guys would notice that.


I have 4 brothers and 1 sister, most of the people i know were guys, my college friends were all guys, 3 lang ata kaming girls.


Wag ng mahiya and enjoy being with boys! Masaya sila kasama kasi you act yourself na tipong walang keme, poise, art at kung ano ano pa.

i agree! don't be intimidated, i mean why so? human beings din sila. :p Just try to be more of your self,. you'll soon find out guys are more likely good to be with. Like say, they're less drama and so on.  ;)
If God is watching us, the least we can do is be entertaining. -- staying positive, won't hurt you I promise! :)

don't try to impress them just be who you really are.... if you watched that movie "there's something about mary" a guy was asked to masturbate before their date so he won't feel nervous towards a girl.... who knows that just might work for girls too... lol
