Nothing is really awkward unless you make it awkward. Tripped on nothing? Pfft, forget it happened. Laugh it off, whatever. Just don't be awkward about it.
Maybe you snort while laughing on a first date. Maybe your crush overhears you talking about all the dirty things you want to do to him. Whatever the case is, awkwardness is a figment of the imagination.
One thing that can be a little awkward? Sex.
If you just rolled your eyes or scoffed at the idea of sex being awkward, you'll be surprised at the amount of people who are really awk about doin' the dirty.
A survey done by the online pharmacy Superdrug Online Doctor, found that 15 percent of people between 18 and 34 have walked into a store just to walk out because they're too awkward to buy condoms.
The breakdown gets even better. The survey posed the question: Have you ever left a store without purchasing contraceptives because you didn't want to face the cashier?
Then when asked from who they were the most afraid of facing at the cashier, men were the most afraid of a young woman. Women were most afraid of seeing someone they know.
STDs are real, and walking out on buying condoms because you're too awkward is a lame excuse to expose yourself and others to icky diseases. Just grab a box, head tot he cashier, and play it cool.
You got this, and your future (clean!) self will thank you.
