    993 – Walking In The Same Direction, After Saying Goodbye 

    This is a funny one.

    You know how sometimes, maybe at the end of a date or a drink with a new friend, you get outside ready to part ways and you’ve both mention other prior engagements you have to get to. You might be having a fantastic time together, so you both unconsciously decide to spent 5 more minutes together, to get closure from your interesting conversation

    Ten minutes pass and you finally feel comfortable with the idea of parting ways. It feels right, the conversation is done and you you’ve both run out of stuff to talk about. You say your final goodbyes, you tell each other how much fun you both had and share a hug. (More …)

      I particularly enjoy when you’re so desperate to stop the awkward extended goodbye that you deviate, going out of your way to not be going the same direction. Then you can stare off like you can’t see them anymore for a few minutes until something opaque takes pity on you and blocks you off from them.

      LOL! Maybe I’m a glutton for punishment. Next time I’m doing a complete 180. “Oops you know what, I’m actually going THAT way” 😛

    994 – When She Calls You Daddy & You Don’t Like It 

    Note: this doesn’t necessarily relate to just during sex, but in every aspect of the relationship.

    There are two schools opposing schools of thought on the issue of calling your man “Daddy”.

    One side (Pro-Daddy) is perfectly fine with it. They consider “Daddy” a term of endearment. To men that enjoy it, the term represents protector, strength and leadership and it encompasses all of the good qualities that women recognise in them.

    The other side (Anti-Daddy) is wholly creeped out  by the very notion of it.  The idea of associating someone they are sleeping with, with their parents elicits an “Eewww!” response . Most Anti-Daddies still refuse to accept that their parents had sex in order to conceive them. To them, Mom & Dad are mortal gods that miraculously created life out of thin air. (More …)

      This is a toughy. It is a little weird and I agree that it can invoke unwanted images. From a woman’s perspective, being asked “Who’s your daddy?” is uncomfortable. I usually try to ignore it and work the sex talk in another direction. But it’s a toughy because as you said it is 100% acceptable everywhere.

      What if the tables are turned though Em? Would you continue dating a guy that called you Mommy?

      Surely that’s worse. To me, that sounds like something a man with severe unresolved issues would say.

      I dated a man who was older than me (by several years). He wanted me to call him daddy- it was so disturbing to me. I don’t get it either. And for the men who want to be called daddy- makes me think that they have some issues…

    • leondelafonte 10:19 pm on February 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I’d love to get an opposing opinion on here, maybe there’s something we’re not getting.

      I’ve noticed that it’s very common in urban culture. Most black female R&B singers use Daddy in their lyrics in. Even Beyonce sings “Give it to momma” in her song Green Light.

    995 – The Elevator Fart Just Before Somebody Walks In 

    We all fart, let’s not pretend we don’t.

    Some of us, just have the common courtesy to only break wind when we’re alone. The problem is that people who let it loose in private are the ones that turn the brightest shade of “embarrassed” when they’re caught out.

    The elevator is not the most ideal spot to let a silent fart out, but sometimes you just can’t hold that baby in. Sometimes you’ll walk into one of those big corporate office buildings where you rarely ever find more than two people sharing an elevator. You might even work in one of those lovely buildings.

    On your ride up you suddenly feel an air bubble coming down (damn g-force). This is the point when the little green monster that lives in your head that I like to call, the fart devil, starts whispering dirty little thoughts into your head “Screw it, nobody’s around. Go ahead, let it loose. Nobody’s going to walk in here, you’ve never had to share this elevator before, what are the chances now?”. (More …)

    996 – All Alone On Valentine’s Day 

    Being alone on Valentine’s sucks!

    I know for a fact that every single single-person in the world today, dislikes Valentine’s.  Even some people who might be in healthy relationships will openly declare how much they hate Valentine’s day.

    For the few couples that are in happy (usually budding) relationships, Valentine’s day is the most romantic day of the year. It’s the one day of the year where men who are usually “too cool for school”, openly express their love to the women in their lives and women with lovers finally get to live their favourite Disney moment. (More …)

      I’m single on Valentine’s Day and have been on all but 2 of them in my life. Tonight, I’m enjoying a glass of wine and watching The Bachelor. Fake love, I know..lol.. One of the sweetest things a guy has done for me is bring me a ‘Get Well’ kit unexpectedly when I had a flu. That tops any forced bouquet, box of candy or meaningless card. If you’re single, celebrate the other loves in you life. Or be happy that you’re aren’t spending it with someone who isn’t worth your time. 🙂

    997 – The first phone call 

    Every time a male protagonist makes a phone call for the first time to his love interest, he’s always charming and he always seems to be completely comfortable talking to a woman that is a relative stranger to him.

    This is not always the case in real life.

    In reality, the first phone conversation with a woman (or man – I am writing this from a guy’s perspective ladies, but I’m sure you can relate) can be one of the most awkward conversations two people can have.
    Sometimes you might not be used to the voice of the person you’re talking to, maybe it’s their accent, the terminology they use, the humour they employ. It could just be their speak pattern. But as often the case, sometimes you both realise that sober, you two just don’t have anything is common. (More …)

    998 – When They Say “I love You” Too Soon 

    iloveyouThere’s no definitive “I Love You” rule. Ask anybody in this day & age how long you should wait before it’s socially acceptable to tell someone you love them, and the most common answer will usually be something along the lines of “When you mean it”, or “When it feels right”.
    Both of which are absolutely awful answers that expect you to be so socially savvy as to know the absolutely right moment and time to say it, without coming off too clingy or needy.

    Most of us in this world are not natural seducers, we learn as we go along. So for you to tell me to say it “When it feels right” means I shouldn’t feel weird uttering those words to someone after our second date…right?

    The Most Awkward Valentine’s Moments Week 

    To celebrate the upcoming Valentine’s Day (or pure marketing genius  as I like to call it) 1001 A.M. will be doing Valentines themed posts all the way until the big day arrives. For the people who absolutely dislike Valentine’s day like me, I hope you get a little pleasure from counting down every single awkward moment of it. Tell your friends about it, we could use the readership.

    Interesting fact about Valentine’s day; you are far more likely to break up with a someone on Valentine’s day than any other day in the year, except the Christmas & New Years…now isn’t that ironic.

    999 – Bumping into the ex 

    I am one of those people that can safely say,  (for the most part) he doesn’t feel awkward bumping into ex-girlfriends…for the most part.

    Unfortunately, ex lovers are not all created equal.  Some exes are like dear old friends who’ll quickly remind you why you loved them, while others inevitably bring out the demon spawn you’ve been trying to bury deep inside your heart.

    The easiest exes to bump into (Type 1 – “the Grown Up”) are the mature ones who (like most grown ups should) openly conversed with you and allowed you full closure when the relationship started dying. By clearing the air, these exes naturally become good friends and in fact, one of my closest friends today is such. (More …)

      There are no other words to describe the ex-bump-in but awkward. You are absolutely right about this. I haven’t had a bump-in in years and I hope it stays that way. A few days ago I thought I saw an ex who would fall in the Grown Up category and still my heart began to race…not in the excited kinda way but in the Fudge! This is going to be Awkward kind of way. I was glad to realize it wasn’t him. Whew!

    • leondelafonte 11:02 am on February 6, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I ran into the ex that started the break up fight that led to her keying my best friend’s car. Which ended up in court with me on my best friend’s side.

      It was truly awkward.

    1000 – The Elevator Stranger 

    You work on the 18th floor and everyone knows that only John, the health freak in accounting is crazy enough to use the stairs this high up. The rest of us lazy s.o.b’s alway take the elevator.

    There’s nothing more awkward than an elevator ride with a complete stranger. You stand there, in this cramped little space, forced to stand just close enough to each other that it’s weird.

    You stand there staring at the floor numbers slowly counting down. You catch a glimpse of the stranger standing next to you and he’s got a blank expression on his face, doing the exact same thing. (More …)

    1001 – Oops, I Accidentally Spit On Your Face. 

    When your friend accidentally spits on your face...awkward!

    You’re having an awesome conversation with your best pal. He’s halfway through the joke he promised you would find hilarious. Then you see it.

    Almost in slow motion, a tiny glob of spit leaps from his lips and lands squarely on your cheek. “Did he just spit on my face?” you think to yourself. “Did he notice that he just spat on my face?”

    OF COURSE he noticed!  You know he noticed itand he knows you noticed it, but you both stand there continuing this charade of a conversation. You’re not going to wipe it off quickly. Why?  (More …)
