Like ADHD and gluten allergies, many people claim to be socially awkward, but only a proud few are truly hopeless goobers. The handicap never presents itself more strongly than when it comes to romance. Writer Mikey Heller's cartoons capture that experience perfectly, sometimes in as little as three frames.

26-year-old Heller is a writer for Cartoon Network’sWe Bare Bears, but in his off time, he puts out perfect little cartoons about life as an awkward human in his strip, Time Trabble. Updated every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, his comics tap into everyday struggles as a weirdo, the most poignant of which are those that touch on how hard it can be to connect.

From being friend-zoned...

To trying too hard for a date...

Or being unable to handle other people's feelings...

The comics are a nice reminder that you aren't alone, even though your social awkwardness has actually left you so very totally and completely alone.
