How do I become less awkward?

I'm very anti-social, I have no friends, and when I try socializing I'm very awkward. Anyway to help this?

You shouldn't worry about being awkward all the time. When I do something embarrassing or if I keep second guessing myself I always ask myself "will this matter in a few weeks?" or even a few days...or a year? Most likely, it will not. People forget about dumb stuff or may not even notice. Who cares what people think? You live one time, you will never get another chance at life again. So why not make the most of it? You have to do what makes you happy or life can be pretty brutal sometimes. You should just work on excepting who you are and get comfortable with it. It will help you become more confident and it will help you come out of your shell a little.

Easier said than done. It's why I'm asking.

Practice, practice...talk to people more, no matter how awkward it is. Find a job and get involved in community through volunteering.

I'm homeschooled so allot of people in public school assume I'm awkward and weird and won't even give me a chance so I sorta know where your coming from, but you don't want to be friends with anybody like that anyway. Just be yourself and don't try to force conversation, find something you have in common with someone and try talking about that :)

Being awkward is not something you do its part of who you are, just like being shy. You can always use awkwardness to your advantage. Some of the best comedians today are awkward. Just think about things in a positive way and everything will work out for you..

I have found forcing myself to do things like work with a lot of people helps to make me less of an awkward person
Also a fast trick I use is to slow it down, when I talk fast I spout out strange things, just take a minute and breathe before you respond.
