That awkward moment when you see a boy from your past....

Yup. That was me yesterday at the grocery store (exactly and to the T!)...When I realized who it was, I almost turned around and called his name...But I didn't want to go there cause I hate willingly putting myself in super awkward situations. (And plus I looked like crappola. Bahahaha!) So who was "he"? I can't really say, our relationship was just sooo weird. Some days we were just pals reminiscing about how he bullied me in elementary school, other days we talked until the wee hours of morning about getting married. Who knows?! But whatever it was, it ended amicably. Anywho... Next time I see him, I'll talk to him... Cause there's no need for awkwardness? Right? Right!

Now tell me, how many times have you seen someone from your 
past and avoided them and or pretended not to see them?
Or am I the only one?

  1. Hahaha your picture says it all. I'm sure you looked fine, but I probably would have done the same thing you did.

  2. Everyday of my awkward life, try! Hahaha

    I have a weird phobia about talking to people from my past. I was straight up run the other way and hide. And be so super awkward. When talking to them for 35 seconds wouldn't kill me. But you never know.

  3. Gah, this sounds just like something that happened to me last summer! Soooo awkward! There was this guy who I had a thing with for a couple years (I don't care if it started when we were 10, it was still a big deal in my poor little life, haha) and after a few years he moved. Welllll a couple years after he moved, he came back to visit. Except, I didn't know that. So one summer afternoon I took a nap, woke up and took a walk...and BAM. There he was. I looked like crap since I just woke up not five minutes earlier. And he had been kind of a jerk face and I dislike(d) him a lot. It was super awkward and I gave him the most awkward hug in the world and had the most awkward conversation in the universe that lasted for about 15 seconds. The End. Haha.

    I love the GIF you made for this post. So great; your facial expressions are hilarious. :)

    I'm glad I'm not the only awkward person out there! Haha. ♥

  4. Love those pictures!! Perfect :)

    There was a guy I went on one date with whilst at uni and even after only one date, it ended super weirdly and a total awkward-fest. One day on campus I saw him and I was like "OH NO!!!!!!" because I could see him in the distance walking towards me and we were clearly going to walk past each other. We were the only two people around and it was super obvious that it was him- and therefore super obvious it was me. I decided my plan would be to keep my head down and then just when we would pass each other, I'd look up, feign surprise, say hi and keep walking. Anyway, I'd been walking for a while and thought "hmm... we should have passed by now" so I looked up for him and he was nowhere to be seen. I turned around and he was now walking away me, he'd done this giant wide berth in order to avoid me. It made me laugh because clearly I wasn't the only one who was worried about it being awkward!

  5. OMG, I hate that.. Like I am so awkward now a days, actually I always was. BUT I HATE seeing old flames. I once saw my ex boyfriend at petsmart when I had both of my pups with me and I was just dropping them to be groomed.. AND I had dog hair all over me :S plus I was wearing sweats and no makeup.. The dumb part was, this was my bf right before I started dating Aaron.. And still to this day it bugs me how he dumped me, and why???? haha. OH WElll.Happy Friday!

  6. That is ONE creative GIF! :) Yes, I agree with Sarah! I would've done the same thing. :)
    Happy Weekend, Janette!

  7. Every time I see someone I knew from years ago but haven't actually spoken to for years, I ruuuuuuuuuuun!

    I mean, dude, how awkward would it be if I wave to them and they give me the "Who the fuck?" look?

    And how awkward would it be if they came up to me and said hi, and at the back of my mind I'm thinking, "Where did I meet this person from again...?"



  8. Gosh, I don't know if that's really happened to me!? You must have been freaking OUTTTTTTTTTTTTT. Ya "I looked like crappola" LOL

  9. YES. UGH. I'm with you. I don't generally run into previous romantic relationship people anymore (since I moved out of my home state) but you know what I hate? Running into people in public places that I'm friends with on Facebook but either a)They don't recognize me, b)I recognize them but don't remember their name, or c)We recognize each other and pass silently anyway. So. awkward. That happened to me last night.

    You're right. It totally doesn't have to be weird! You should just be like, "Oh, hey, what's up? I'm totally awesome and confident and not at all freaked out by seeing you! Nothing is weird about this moment! HIIIIIIIIIIIIIi!" Okay, maybe I'm not so good at not being awkward. Lol.

  10. I do that kind of thing ALL the time. Especially since I've moved back closer to where I went to high school. I didn't care for most of those people back then, so why would I want to subject myself to them now? So I just put my head down and hope they don't recognize me :)

  11. Oh gosh. One time I ran into my ex at a restaurant with his new girlfriend...who's name is also Bekah. Seriously awkward! I just stuttered hello and luckily was looking fabulous getting off of the back of my friend's motorcycle so it as ok. But weird. hAHA. Love your photos though. Hahah,


  12. Ha, I do that...cause sometimes I just don't want to meet that particular person anymore.

  13. hahaha this gif is hilarious. i adore you

  14. I definitely do that sometimes! there are just some people that i pretend not to see to save us from an awkward conversation. Especially boys that you had a weird relationship with.

  15. Been there! I'm the one who usually says Hi! Sometimes I do ignore. Especially the girl I used to know that gave me the cold stare. Rude!

  16. OMG I totally do that too! Especially if they are an Ex. hahahahahahah No need for awkward hellos or "how are you doing? Obviously I am doing great because I'm married with a child and you are still single and I feel like I have to act like I care about you because at one point I did, but no longer do" SO AWKWARD!!!! However if it is someone I was just friends with 62% of the time I wont recognize them. I HAVE A HORRIBLE BRAIN! That is why I was excited to see Holly Madison at Disneyland because I finally saw someone I recognized hahaha. You are not alone!!! I would have done the exact same thing, especially if it was a weird relationship and especially if I felt like I looked like scum between his toes. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!

  17. HAHAHhahahahahaha. i love you.
    i hate, HATE when this happens. i've had it happen to me with boys and their parents. AHH that's the worst.

  18. omgosh!!! this happened to me and it was so funny and awkward at the same time... i literally ducked behind the little soda cooler at the checkout area. ha ha....
