    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 …)

    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 …)

    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…

      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.

    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.
