    978 – Forgetting Someone’s Name…After They Just Told It To You 

    Let’s be honest. Half the time when we ask someone, “What’s your name?” we’re just being social. It’s one of the few questions that we know we can safely ask any stranger we have nothing to say to, giving us those few precious seconds to desperately try and think of a more interesting topic to bring up…well…that’s what I do anyway.

    Sometimes, you just don’t think you’ll ever need to know that person’s name. They’re a stranger to you. You only ask because it’s polite. You ask only because you have nothing else to say to them and sometimes, you don’t even realise that you actually asked them what their name is. It’s kinda like saying “How you doin’!”, you ask only because that’s just what people say to people they don’t know.

    Well, there’s all that, but honestly speaking (for men anyway), there’s a very good chance that we were far too busy looking at your boobs to listen to pretty much anything you ever said, let alone your name…sorry, we’re men…we’re awful…I know, I know.

    It’s safe to say, we don’t always remember people’s names. It ‘s bad enough to forget the name of a person you met a long time ago, that can happen to anyone. It’s downright shameful to meet someone new. To introduce yourselves to each other and just 3 minutes later be faced with the need to introduce that person to other people.

    You find yourself in that position where you start uttering the words “…this is…” you point at your new friend and “…”, you draw a complete blank.  You start recalling the entire conversation you had with this person. You remember them say “I’m ¿*”⌐sh“. You now have a clue to what the name is, but you don’t know for sure. Something inside you says “Tash!”, but you’re just not sure if Tash was the last person you met or the other person before that. Tash could be a completely different person.

    You’re now faced with a decision; say “…Tash” and risk getting the name completely wrong. Or openly admit to this person that you’re (at that very moment) introducing to other people, that you can’t remember their name. The simple name they literally just told you…shame on you.
    Worst of all is when this complete stranger actually had the decency to remember your name and they openly address you by it when they talk to you. They cared enough about who you were to actually remember your name. You didn’t. Then, you’re just the jerk that doesn’t bother remembering people’s names. And how self-absorbed is that?

    Forgetting someone’s name (when they literally just told it to you) is…AWKWARD!!

    981 – First Kiss Rejection…Sucks! 

    First dates are awkward, but the most important  awkward moment (especially on a date) is the first kiss.

    It’s an awesome feeling when you get to that moment when your faces are inches from each other and you know your date could pull away from you if she chose to, but she leans in and meets your lips half-way. It’s a lot of awkward when she doesn’t. That’s when things start to get awkward.

    You tried to make your move. You went for the kiss. She blew you out! “WTF!?”  If you made your move at the end of the night (rookie mistake) then I’m sorry bro, you’re going to have to be on your A-game next time…MWAHAHA! Every fool in the world knows that you don’t leave the first kiss to the end of the night…this is one of the reasons why. 😛 (More …)

      So as a girl (not to sound cocky) I’ve never been rejected on a kiss before. Admittedly in most cases the guy does the initiation but there are times where I’ve done it.

      I’ve only rejected one kiss that I can remember off the top of my head. Was out with a group of people at an ultra lounge and guy came and sat next to me, we had a good conversation (he had an Aussie accent — weakness) and then he leaned in and tried to kiss me. I moved away and after that he was so embarrassed, you could just tell he was pretty much mortified. I felt bad, but it was a little too soon.

      We continued talking and he said he wanted to take me on a “proper date” but shortly after that I had to leave so I gave him a quick kiss. Partially to make up for rejecting him and partially because he was cute.

      So I guess in turn, him being rejected got me to initiate a kiss with him.

        Do you think it would have been less awkward if the guy had been less reactive to your rejection. Because sometimes we can create the awkwardness by expecting it to be awkward…right? 😮

    986 – Your First Sexual Experience, Losing Your Virginity 

    Losing your virginity is probably the most awkward sexual experience, you will ever have. Why? Because sex is awkward.

    It’s uncoordinated, limbs are all over the place and you always find yourself working muscles that you’d normally never care about. Most adults eventually get the hang of it, some become great at it, but before that…well, let’s just say I wish there was a simple “How To” guide.

    For all you virgins out there, eagerly waiting for the day you finally pop their cherry, here’s a short lesson in avoiding the most awkward situations of first time sex and how to live through them sexually disappoint your girlfriend another day. Here are the 5 most awkward facts about your first sexual experience (that my dad never told me): (More …)

    988 – The Walk Of Shame 

    There is no phrase more appropriate for the walk of shame, than “The Walk Of Shame“. It’s exactly what it says on the tin. You’re walking home, and you feel a little ashamed…perfect.

    Every Sunday morning, make it a point to sit on your balcony (between the hours of 6am & 10am) and count how many shamed walkers go past, you’ll be surprised how many of them there are (people are getting laid out there, don’t be left behind, go have some fun of your own ;-)). They’re very easy to spot too,  just look for anyone that’s dressed up far too nicely for a Sunday morning, or inappropriately for the weather.

    The women are usually the easiest to spot, they “clip clop” down the street, their heads hanging so low their messed up hair covers their faces. Shame oozes out of them. The men on the other hand, strut. It’s like they want the world to know they just got some. You can tell that they’re just hoping for someone to ask “Where are you coming from?“, to which the answer will probably be something along the lines of THIS. (More …)

    989 – Listening To Your Crush, Crushing On Someone Else 

    The friend zone sucks!

    It’s like a little black hole in your heart that keeps sucking the sexuality out of you. Once you’ve been friend-zoned, it’s very rare that you’ll come back from it. As a result, most people chose to hold onto their feelings and live in the hope that “maybe one day the moment willcome.”

    With all those bottled up feelings inside, the most awkward (& difficult) thing to hear from your crush, is to listen to them talking about somebody else. They tell you how amazing this other person is, or how good in bed he/she is and how funny or beautiful they are. (More …)

    991 – Watching A Sex Scene On Your First Date 

    There’s a strange dynamic that occurs on date first date. Especially early when you’ve just met ad you’re not sure where, or how far things a going to go. While the guy is gently trying to nudge things closer to sex, the girl usually feels the social pressure to wait until the second or third date before she sleeps with the man (of course, some women don’t bother waiting).

    So watching a sex scene on your first date, before you’ve even made up your minds about how attracted to each other you are can get…awkward.

    From a man’s perspective, if you’ve managed to get a woman comfortable enough with you to maintain physical contact, the last thing you want to do when a steamy sex scene plays out, is to let her feel you twitch or shift at that precise moment.
    It might not be the worst thing in the world, but being reactive in that situation could easily be misinterpreted as a poorly timed, overly eager first move. It’s just not a good look.

    AWKWARD!

    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.

    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.

      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 

    MOVIES LIE!
    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 …)
