No matter how perfect your relationship is, many of us face awkward moments that we wish never occurred. Even though you may feel that awkward moments only happen to you, it is important to remember they happen to everyone. There are several awkward relationship moments that many of us face but don’t want to admit.
Is There Something In My Teeth? There is nothing worse than having something in your teeth and no one telling you – especially on a first date! You could be having a good time and then hours later you discover a big piece of food stuck right in the middle of your teeth. There are two ways you can avoid this situation; you can either run to the bathroom to check your appearance after you have a bite to eat, or, you can ask your date if you have something in your teeth. This will make the situation less awkward and allow them to give you an honest answer.
The Ex Factor Running into your ex when you are with your current partner is not the ideal situation to face. This can be awkward for all parties if you stop and converse when it’s unexpected. The best way to avoid any awkward situation is to avoid your ex completely or make the encounter short sweet and simple, keeping any conversation to a minimum.
What’s In A Name? Calling your boyfriend or girlfriend the wrong name can be awkward and embarrassing. This can make things quite uncomfortable for both parties. This cannot be reversed but if you can both laugh about it and not make a big deal about the situation, then you are ok.
The ‘L’ Word It is never easy to say ‘I Love You’ and it can be awkward when it is not reciprocated. Unfortunately, saying these three words are a risk and it can be difficult to know if your partner feels the same way.
SOS Sending a message to the person you admire when it was really intended for your best friend can be awkward. Talking about them and then sending the message to them by accident is common. Be diligent when sending texts and always ensure that you send the message to the right person.
Unfortunately you cannot turn back time and take back that embarrassing moment you truly regret. The only thing that you can do is move on and laugh about it. Don’t dwell on those awkward moments, just remember, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
