8 Tips On How To Deal After An Awkward Hookup

At some point in our lives, we will have some sort of an awkward hookup. Whether it’s terrible sex or just a truly awful and weird kiss, we will all experience some kind of hookup moment that leaves us cringing and wondering if we will ever be able to face that person again. It’s even worse when that person is a good friend of yours – how can you go on with a platonic friendship once your tongues have been in each other’s mouths… and it didn’t feel great?!

Once, a few years ago, I hooked up with a friend of mine from high school. Things happened really quickly, and immediately afterwards, we both felt uncomfortable, but obviously didn’t know how to deal. The only way to describe the whole experience is to say that it was super awkward. That’s why I’m writing this post. I know that feeling that way after a hookup really sucks… and it can lead to a lot of confusion and mixed emotions. So, if you’ve had a bad hookup, here is how to deal:

    I connected with a guy on Facebook we both live in the same town anyways after months of talking we decided to meet up one day for just a face to face to get to know each other, that went well and the convos went on via Facebook and texting. We finally decided on a day to meet and get a little more personal so he picks me up we go back to his place and everything went awsome. And yes everything was pretty damn awsome. So right after he jumps up gets dressed and is like I have some errands are you ok was it all ok with you, to which I said yes. So on the ride home for some reason it was just sooo awkward we barely spoke he tryed to have random convo but I dont know why it felt weird. So anyways its been 4 days ive messaged him on Facebook but no reply…he hasnt unfriended me but just dont talk to me now. I know it was a random thing yes but still I feel so totally weird about it now.

    Thanks so much for this article! I did the ‘make up an excuse to get out of it’ one last night, and this was so helpful now that I actually need to follow it up. It turns out that friends’ uncles are not a good idea.
