I haven't known her for very long. She's quite pretty but I've no intention of chasing after her, I'm really enjoying the friendship we've formed so quickly. I usually don't get along with people so well, especially when we dont share alot in common, and especially women, but me and her are getting along great! She's also admitted to being social awkward and anxious around people and it shows. So with those points in mind my question is, is it normal for conversation to be kind of awkward between us? I really like her and don't want this friendship to fade away because of my socialising problems. Everytime we talk there are awkward gaps in the conversation where neither of us knows what to say so we frantically search for a new topic. When we do have a topic we'll be laughing away! So, is this normal? Do friends last like this or am I doomed to slowly lose contact due to our combined awkwardness and inability to make approaches?
