13 Embarrassing Things Awkward People Do Around Their Crushes

13 Embarrassing Things Awkward People Do Around Their Crushes

Being awkward is rough. Social skills and eye contact don’t come naturally to everyone, OK? What’s even worse is being one of those awkward girls around your crush. All normal conversations and behavior can be thrown right out the window in romantic-related situations (even if the romance is one-sided — that one side being you). The struggle is real, and we have 13 socially inept reasons to prove it. Read more on Tres Sugar…

Awkward: John Edwards Allegedly Got Turned Away From A Funeral

john-edwards-040414

It just gets worse for John Edwards, doesn’t it? First he got busted cheating on his wife and siring a love child. Then his mistress Rielle Hunter, with whom he made a sex tape, turned out to be cuckoo bananas. And now the family of the woman whose presidential campaign donation he allegedly used to financially support Hunter allegedly turned him away from her funeral. Page Six reports that the family of heiress Bunny Mellon, who donated  $700,000 to the Edwards campaign in 2008, were none too pleased when Edwards and his adult daughter Cate showed up to her recent funeral in Virginia. “He was barred from entering,” the gossip page reports, citing NY Social Diary blogger David Patrick Columbia. After he was turned away, Edwards and his daughter watched the funeral onscreen with the “overflow crowd” at a nearby location. He then showed up at the cemetery and “was working the crowd near the graveside after the service,” according to Columbia. While there may be a bit of editorializing on the gossip reporters’ part, do any of us have a difficult time imagining John Edwards fielding dirty looks while he hobnobs with a bunch of old rich folks dressed in black?

Watch Letterman Grab Justin's Brand New Tattoo

Justin Bieber’s talk show swagger definitely gets on my nerves, but during his appearance on David Letterman last night, it was the host who made me cringe. Letterman spent the interview mocking Bieber about his new tattoo, then grabbed the fresh ink while Bieber screamed out in pain (totally not OK, Letterman). Bieber finished out the interview looking visibly hurt and uncomfortable while Letterman laid into him for referring to the Sistine Chapel as the “Sixteenth Chapel” (a dumb mistake, but come on, the kid had just been attacked by a curmudgeonly talk show host!). Check out parts one and two of the interview above to see the carnage for yourself. [TMZ]

By now you’ve probably heard the story about Melissa Stetten, a model who had the misfortune of sitting next to an actor named Brian Presley on a recent flight. Despite being married and having a child, Brian spent the entire flight flirting shamelessly with his seatmate, as Melissa secretly live-tweeted the entire interaction. This cringe-worthy situation got us thinking about all the crazy/weird/awkward people we’ve been trapped next to on long flights–the former cult member, for example, or the sci-fi writer who mapped out the plot of his entire series in specific, mind-numbing detail. We’d love to hear about your worst airplane seatmates — please share your horror stories in the comments! [Gawker]

How To Be Awkward: At The Bar

Being awkward is an art form honed over many weekends spent singing out-of-key karaoke and talking about people when they’re right behind you. Of course there are a variety of ways you can be awkward, and not all of them are created equal. Surely it’s worse to be the awkward girlfriend than it is to simply be the awkward girl in class, right? Not necessarily. While we’ll likely explore both of those scenarios in the future, today I’m going to teach you how to be the awkward girl at the bar. Because she’s everyone’s favorite. Duh. Read more …
