    We’ve all had our own share of awkward situations at some point in our lives and for some reason we never know how to deal with them.

    Mostly because there isn’t a way to deal with them, you just have to soak up the embarrassment and the awkwardness, laugh it out and move on with your day.

    So if you still can’t get over one of your awkward situations, hopefully this list of the most common ones will help you relate!

    1. Waving At Someone You Think You Know

    We’ve all had our own share of awkward situations at some point in our lives and for some reason we never know how to deal with them. Mostly because there isn’t a way to deal with them, you just have to soak up the embarrassment and the awkwardness, laugh it out and move on with your day. So if you still can’t get over one of your awkward situations, hopefully this list of the most common ones will help you relate!

    1.  Saying Goodbye But Going The Same Way

    How many times have you said your official goodbyes to your friends or acquaintances, but ended up going the exact same way? Although you just end up laughing if that happens with one of your closest friends, it can get a little awkward if it is between you and a person that you might have just met or aren’t close with. Either way this situation is not that bad because the awkwardness is equally shared!

    1.  Realizing a story isn’t as funny as you thought it was You know how you tell your friends a story which you think is hilarious but then halfway through you realize it sounded funny in you your head only? Well, you should end that story and move on.

      But what you actually do is add fictional elements to it that never happened and try to make it funny(which evidently never happens).

    1. Running Into Someone At A Supermarket, And Then Continuing To Meet Them In Every Single Aisle

    What you can do here is smile at them and carry on shopping. But what you want to do is quit shopping, give up on life and start a new life in the mountains in solitude.

    1. High Fives

    What is more awkward then being left hanging after offering a high five? Here you are hanging your hand in the air but the other person doesn’t notice it, so you awkwardly move your hand through your hair as if that is what you intended to do from the beginning. However sometimes you don’t end up so lucky, and someone notices your rejection and points it out!

    1. Singing The Wrong Lyrics

    Jamming out with your friends or family to your favorite tunes is all fun and games until someone sings the wrong lyrics! It’s a little embarrassing and awkward but once everyone has made fun of you, it blows over. However now it’s impossible to not be self-conscious about your singing!

    1. Stumbling

    Sometimes even walking can end up being a difficult task, so you mend up stumbling or falling at different times in different places. Though, it always feels better when you have friends and your family members around you to help you out, but when you end up awkwardly stumbling in front of strangers it gets a little embarrassing. So, we pretend like nothing happened.
