Oh god yes!!! I have felt awkward so many times!! But there is one that has really stuck in my memories. I was about 10, maybe even 9, and I went to day camp at the Salvation Army. That day, the counselers decieded to take us to a water park. I was best friends with this girl named Charlotte and she and I BOTH knew I had a crush on her brother Bennett. Anyway, Bennett and I were both on top of the monkey bars, (soaked from playing the in the water) when suddenly we were flirting like crazy. I don’t remember how we got this conversation, but it happened: “You better stop!” Bennett joked. “Or what?” I laughed, poking him again. “Or I’ll have to kiss you!”
And me, being the smooth-unembarrased-not scared girl that I was (NOT!!!!) I FREAKED and said the first thing that came to my mind: “If you try to kiss me I’ll beat the crap out of you.” Since then, me and Bennett have NEVER spoken of that day and have remained ONLY FRIENDS. ^_^

putney is the boarding school i went to.
why does it say ‘putney’ on her shirt?!
My first Kiss without tongue.
We both were 6, in the ground school. we left the school hand in hand often. On the schoolground outside she gave me a kiss. I got a stress with my six years thougt, i ll bcome a father! But my mom said that barbara wont became pregnant by a kiss. thankgoodness !
When we were 21 years we met at a ball again and had a hot night together. the next day she told me that she is pregnant since a month by a other boy - geeeeez… is this what amerikans call ‘awkward’ ? (german: peinlich)
….. we stayed together for 5 months, i had my reasons why i left here.
this is a 100 percent true story by david from vienna.
Hahahaha…my first date was awkward, I was sixteen, he was seventeen, our parents were taking pictures, and neither of us had dated anyone before…….but we’re still together after almost two years so i guess it’s all good.
that one part with the medical issues was genious, and the middle is all twisted up i love it! Also the one where you stay over at his house, and there is a picture of your kiss-again and ‘This is not right’ is a beautiful drawing.
it’s funny to read this now that i’ve had time to recover from my own version of what you went through. that said, it was horribly painful at the time.
u said it
Augh, life is awkward.
i met someone at a party. i was with my boyfriend but somehow i kept thinking HE is the one. we actually talked for a while. then it got AWKWARD because my boyfriend was like right there. i left. i still wonder about him.
memories of my first kiss are of a kiss that never happened. i had a ‘girlfriend’ in 8th grade and she really wanted me to kiss her — i was gay, but that wasnt clear to me at the time — i couldnt really imagine doing that to her. i was happy to be her boyfriend but totally uninterested in touching her. she broke up with me after a few affectionless months!
Just after I met my husband (9 years ago or so) we did mushrooms in our flat in Paris. It was a great experience, great fun really - very playful. We were looking at a world atlas and all the countries started climbing on top of
each other. Then we got in the street, and I sware all the cars on one side of the street where white, etc. At one point it turn a little weird and he turned into a bird - I told him and he was not happy. But his face was one of a nice beaky bird. So I got concerned and figured that it must have been symbolical and coming straight from my subconscious and what not. And I was
so sad and worried that our relationship would be doomed . But then I forgot about it, and really this ‘he is a bird and how am I going to kiss his beak’ trip never came back again
awkward’s pretty much a state of being for me.
excellent story - i first got into kissing i experienced things from both sides of your story. but still, i don’t ever think i pictured a rat!
well…i threw up alover this guy who was trying to kiss me. its not original or anything. wish i didn’t remeber it. drunk enough to puke, not drunk enough to forget it
