Being Too Polished

I was at an event this weekend and there was a guy there and he was…

Awkward.

Now, most times when a guy is awkward he kind of stutters through what he’s saying or he stares at a woman’s boobs while he talks.

Or maybe he stands way too close or tries to touch her in ways he shouldn’t.

(There were a few of those, too.)

But this guy…

He had a unique problem.

He was too polished.  Too smooth and well-presented.

It was like he’d spent too much time studying how to be charming and confident.

You’d think that would be a good thing.

But it wasn’t.

He was trying so hard it was painful.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again.

Just be yourself!
