The Most Awkward Social Situations

A new study found the average person deals with 84 awkward social situations a year. The most awkward one is having to introduce someone when you can’t remember their name.

A few that made the top 20 most awkward situations were bumping into an ex, meeting your idol or a celebrity, dancing with someone, a first kiss, standing up in a packed train or bus, and being told you have something in your teeth.

    Here are the top ten:

  1. Introducing someone when you don’t know their name. 43% of us have done it.
  2. Bumping into someone you don’t like.
  3. Being interviewed for a new job.
  4. Meeting someone who used to date the person you’re currently with.
  5. Networking for your job.
  6. Meeting the parents for the first time.
  7. Going on a first date.
  8. Talking to someone you’re attracted to.
  9. Meeting up with someone you met online.
  10. Greeting a room full of people. It’s not clear if that means walking into a room full of people, or having to meet and exchange names with a bunch of people at once.
