You’re Not The Only Awkward One: 50 Singles Reveal The Most Embarrassing Way They Chased A Crush

We all do stupid things for love. Ask Reddit has (more than) a few examples to make you feel less alone.

45. In 12th grade I had a huge crush on this guy in one of my classes. I knew his favorite book and movie was Fight Club, so I Googled everything about it (along with watching the movie). On Valentine’s Day, I sent him a card that said I want to have your abortion and gave him my phone number.

46. We had a foreign exchange student my Freshman year of High school.

She was French and absolutely gorgeous, so naturally, all of us boys were smitten with her. She was in choir and sang really well, so I figured since I was a musician as well, that was my “in” with her.

So, I busted my ass and learned a love song from a very popular French Opera. It took me a really long time to memorize and I thought it would be a bold gesture. So, I sang it to her flawlessly and asked her how she liked it, thinking that taking the effort to learn a love song in her language would be a great gesture.

Well.. That day, I found out that she was Swedish, not French. I’m fucking stupid.
