Most of the time it feels like my life is one long series of awkward situations. I wish I were joking or exaggerating, but I’m not – I haven’t quite gotten a handle on acting social without being incredibly awkward at the same time. So when I saw one of Twitter’s trending topics today was #AwkwardSituations, I jumped at the chance to read some of the amazing tweets.
Seriously, every single one of these 20 very awkward moments has happened to me. I don’t know if I should be proud or sad. Whatever, I’ll embrace it – at least those awkward situations make for some pretty hilarious stories later on, right? Read on to see 20 of the most awkward situations that happen to all of us:
THIS JUST HAPPENED TO ME AND IT WAS SO WEIRD.
And it always happens at the absolute worst moment, right?
It’s like, what exactly am I supposed to do here?
Your friend is all like, “are you okay?” and you’re all like, “Oh yeah, I’m fine, I could climb stairs all day.”
Whatever, just dance it out.
What do I want for my birthday? For all of you to skip singing happy birthday. Thanks.
Being the third wheel… never fun, always awkward.
Damn you, chain messages.
And then you try to play it off like, “Oh, I was just touching my hair, no big deal.”
Don’t you just want to scream, “I WASN’T LOOKING AT YOU I SWEAR.”
Get on my level, man.
Do you smile at them? Do you ignore them? Do you say hi? So many questions!
And then you guys try not to look at each other, because what else are you supposed to do?
…to your mom. Or dad.
This is always accompanied by a lot of blushing and trying to act nonchalant, but failing.
It’s like, “Oh hey, I SEE YOU.”
You’re just left sitting there wondering what they must think of you, am I right?
EVERY SINGLE TIME.
That moment when you feel incredibly embarrassed for them because they suck at flirting…
You just want to run after them screaming for them to come back, you know?
