When you’re in the middle of a hot and heavy hook up session, most people aren’t thinking about the possibility of some random person opening the door and disturbing things. Chances are you’re too focused on the *tasks at hand.* All it takes is for one random person to open the door and it completely changes things.
I’m cringing just at the thought of it happening. No one wants an intruder whether they’re making out with their SO, doing butt stuff, or right in the middle of some complicated sex maneuvers. It’s all bad. And it’s all embarrassing AF.
The easiest solution would be erasing everyone’s memories, but unfortunately that isn’t a viable option at that moment. That means that we unfortunately have to deal with the aftermath of the incident. It will be awkward, but there are right ways to do and wrong ways. Here’s how to deal if someone walks in on you and bae when you’re in the middle of hooking up.
Do Not PanicI will say it, even though I know you're going to do it. I know that this probably seems like the worst thing in the world right now and that your worst nightmares have come true, but it's not quite as bad as you think. No one was injured, there was no earthquake, and no major TV spoilers were leaked. You've had the embarrassing moment, you've lived through it. Now, you just have to get through a few awkward days. You can do it. Everyone will eventually move on. Image source: Getty
Try Not To OverreactI know that the intruder should have had the decency to knock and that they definitely should not have been home at that time, but yelling at them about it isn't going to change what happened. You're upset and embarrassed and it's natural to look for a place/person to blame. But, trying to make this someone's fault isn't going to help the situation. Image source: Getty
Realize The Other Person Will Feel Just As AwkwardI know that you and your significant other were the ones who were in various stages of undress, but think about how the other person must feel. It's not like they intentionally barged in on you, hoping to catch you guys naked and in the act. They're probably feeling ashamed, embarrassed, and like they majorly screwed up. If you try to see it from their perspective, it can help with your response. Image source: Getty
Consider How You Should Follow UpThis will depend on your relationship with the person who walked in on you. If it's someone random like a delivery person, you don't need to say something. You can just hope that they change their delivery route. If it's your friends or family, you're probably going to have to say something otherwise there will be a big elephant in the room. If it's your parents, they might be the ones to organize a conversation so be prepared. Image source: Getty
Focus On Moving OnIf you decide to address the situation, try to keep it brief. There's no need to go into a lengthy explanation about how you and bae ended up in the situation. Everyone will likely know. Tell the other party that you know they probably feel embarrassed about the incident, like you do, and you hope that everyone can move beyond this and it won't impact your relationship. If you show you're ready to move on, they should be chill with it, too. Image source: Getty
Be Prepared For Questions Or CommentsThe people who walked in on you should be respectful given that they saw you and bae in a compromising pose. That being said, you should still be prepared for some questions or comments. If family saw you, they might have protection questions. You can answer them how you please, but if you find someone's comments are out of line, or they're saying too much, don't be afraid to speak up. Image source: Getty
