"unaccustomed acquaintances" is based on the anxiety and pressure we put on ourselves when engaging in social activities. How is this anxiety and stress shown physically in a way that we may not be aware of in the moment? I think this awkwardness and realness is actually really beautiful and in a sense shows who we are deep down, but only those who are paying close attention will actually understand.
