Having a crush can get really messy. It's hard to maintain a chill vibe around them, and sometimes it's easy to slip up and do something incredibly embarrassing. Here are some of the worst embarrassing moments in front of a crush, courtesy of the kind people over at Reddit.

u/eggedshrek69 asked: What was the most awkward interaction you have ever had with your crush?


Ouch.

We were messaging about the homework in our class when he asked for my opinion on a poem he wrote for his crush. I had some hope that it was me and this was gonna be a cute way for him to tell me. Nope. It was actually a poem for his crush and he used her name in it. I said it was good even though it kinda hurt inside.

Oh NO.

Finally asked a girl out, and she eagerly accepted. About halfway through the date, she turns to me and says: you know what? I've decided to stay with my fiancee.

Not sure what's worse. Finding out she has a fiancee, or realizing that it was your company that drove her back into his arms.

Well that's sh*tty.

Back in High School - I was talking to my crush out in the lunch court, and a bird pooed on my face.

Not gonna lie, ya had me in the first half.

Laughed my a** off at this.

We've all done this.

Went for a hug and she went for a handshake. Then started to go for a shake and she went for hug. It lasted a while. My dad was watching from the car. Lol he was so embarrassed for me.

Whoops.

When I was a freshman in college, there was a crazy hot girl I would have happened to not mind going out with. She was also my little sister's dance teacher. Anyway, we're walking to class and thinking I would be a chivalrous gentlemen I reached to open the door for her.

Except instead of grabbing the handle I completely missed and only grabbed air. I managed to catch myself before I got the ground but that was the last time we walked to class together.

Awww.

When she told me that she liked me while we were the last two waiting to be picked up by our respective parents after a school trip, and I asked "...Why?"

I had horrible self esteem issues as a kid.

I do this too.

Last weekend she wanted to take selfies with me at a birthday party and for whatever reason I always make the weirdest faces when I know my picture is being taken. She got frustrated and just gave up. I'm going to ask her out on Saturday though so wish me luck.

Damnthatgraham

Not my wife.

Giphy

We were at her place, she's sitting on the couch and her purse is next to her. I grab her purse to move it so I can sit next to her and then some tampons fall out. She quickly gets up and puts them away, I've never seen her move so fast before.

Now she's not my wife.

Ew.

We played Truth or Dare in a large group. Three guys, one girl. All of us guys had a crush on her. At the time I had a goatee and she was dared to lick it, so she use her tongue to draw a wet circle all the way around my mouth. She had really bad breath and I could smell her saliva all day. It was a miserable experience.

apocguy

So sad.

My truth or dare experience didn't have any physical contact, so not nearly as weird.

Basically, my crush asked me truth or dare. Naturally, I'm not going to set myself up for failure, so I said, truth.

Her: Do you like me?

Me: (Immediately) No.

Her: You're supposed to tell the truth!

It was the first day of camp and she was miserable the rest of the week.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
