    Like sometimes my friends rp over text and *cuddle* in quotes excessively.

    Or they type or talk in a cutesy way.

    Or they’re just weabs idk, are people self aware that they could come off as cringey? Do they try to hide this type of behaviour from others in different social groups in their lives?

    Or are they genuinely not self aware and act this way around everyone. (Online though)

    Nope. You are just happy and don't realize how cringey you are.

    I act like a cringey weeb and I'm proud of it. I don't act like that with people not in my friend circle though, because I don't want to commit social suicide

    To be both edgy and cringey at the same time

    "Actors" do.
    Depend on the "level", then they do.

    Beside that, then it's can be an unconscious action.
    Like really, that's why Chuunibyou are the phase that people often call "Dark Pasts", cause they didn't even notice. Then there are those "Innocently Unbelievable Pure"-type of people, they can even make sarcasm without they even truly notice, or more like they don't think so but you feel like it.

    Generally people keep that activity between them, but it spills out unnoticed. I, a late 20s large hairy man, have engaged in "cutesy" talk with my fiance. Love is a terrible terrible thing and it destroys everything rational.

    If a recording of some of my cringier conversations exists I have no doubt at all that I would blow my brains out upon hearing it. So aware of the cringe, but in the moment it seems normal, that's my general answer.

    nah never type those kind of words to anyone except with the close friends/partner.

    in my case whenever i texted my friend some cringey words they would just respond as crigey as they could be and it was really fun.

    but don't do that to stranger just please don't.

    People are heavily influenced by their experiences. There was a time MTL ruined my vocabulary. There was another that I realized I started shrugging like a certain reddit meme. I didn't like the meme, but I saw it so often I subconsciously linked it to shrugging, and it took months to break that habit.

    tl;dr they may be aware of it, or they may not. If you point it out to them, they probably will become self-conscious. But even then, they'll behave that way habitually. Habits are hard to break.

    Actors like Kpop people acting cutesy is different though, bc they’re celebs so they adopt a persona,

    it’s only when regular people irl adopt such attitudes (imagine a real girl acting like a tsundere anime girl, smacking you and talking in that tsun way irl or online) that it gets concerning

    depend of individual awareness
    some friend said my gf is cringey in her text but i felt its normal and not something to be ashamed

    beauty in the eye of beholder (not that i mean cringe text are beauty, just if you like a person it mean you don't care about their text but if you don't like someone you will criticize even little thing)

    NIGGA I'M ALREADY SELF AWARE THAT I'M CRINGY AF! People to the left, they saw me as a crazy person who tends to laugh at my phone whenever i saw a funny scene. People on the net tend to saw me as a Edgy MCEdgelord.

    When in truth, i'm just a normal peep trying to lose some stress in my life.

    True, you can tolerate your friends, but sometimes judge strangers..

    what makes me cringe are youtubers who got high egos, that's why it's refreshing to see a talented guys who are humble to themselves

    I enjoy observing Pewdiepie’s struggle with his ego, he’s self aware which is nice.

    People that intentionally act like that for whatever reasons, like gaining attention or self-aware Chuuni, hench "Actors". Basically, the type of characters you often see in anime that we often call "wearing a mask" or stuffs.
