Every single day you run into awkward situations. How you deal with them defines who you are.

Key Points:

  • We all have had awkward situations when we weren’t sure what to do. The key is to know the right way to respond to them. 
  • It might be running into someone when you’re buying personal things at the store or sending a text to the wrong person. To the latter, be sure to always double check what you wrote and who it’s to before you hit send!
  • Hanging out with couples can be terribly awkward. The best thing to do is just avoid those situations all together.
