I need to find a word for someone who you feel uncomfortable with - like awkward. Someone who you like, but can't really have a normal and comfortable conversation with. Maybe even someone who makes you feel self-conscious, though that's not what I'm really aiming for...
I used to work alongside such a person. He was okay, and acted friendly enough but there was something about him which made me internally cringe whenever we exchanged words. Perhaps it was his excessive enthusiasm that I found most irritating, in any case I always had an excuse not to join him for a coffee.
