awkward conversations #33

preface your one night stands.
i recommend something along the lines of:
'we'll never shop for groceries together. and i won't respect you in the morning.'
if all else fails, make sure they don't have your actual phone number.

the internet gives us brand new ways to be totally uncomfortable with each other.

awkward conversations #19

oh yeah, dating rocks. i'm really enjoying it.

awkward conversations #18

racial diversity part 2

tee, hee.

awkward conversations #17

we all know someone like this... desperate for approval, trying to bond, humping your leg like a puppy...

awkward conversations #16

we lie to each other. i'm not sure why.
sometimes, i think...

if you're a clinger, just cling.

awkward conversations #15

Racial diversity, part 1: Never start a conversation with "I'm not racist".

being single means having weird conversations that go in weird directions.

awkward conversations #13

some people have no filter.

awkward conversations #12

first dates are awkward. just get on with it.

protect us from an uncomfortable self-awareness.

some conversations are implicit by their aftermath.

awkward conversations #09

when is the right time to tell?

awkward conversations #08

you have to decide... acknowledge it or ignore it?

awkward conversations #07

this dinosaur looks drunk to me.
still, to be on the safe side, have his people call your people.

awkward conversations #06

honesty can be a huge, blunt knife. use it with care.

awkward conversations #05

don't start an awkward conversation you don't want to have.

awkward conversations #04

is there a word for the moment when you realise you've forgotten how to flirt?

awkward conversations #03

after a breakup, you you go with honesty?
...either way, choose and stick with it.

awkward conversations #02

affection-starved, you lose every scrap of dignity.

awkward conversations #01

don't lie, don't swap numbers, don't facebook each other.
just keep walking.

i always wanted to do a web comic

...but i can't draw. so a few weeks ago i started taking photos, and awkward conversations was born.
to my gleeful surprise, people look at it, like it and email me about it. so i thought i'd give it a more permanent home than flickr.
hope you like it - and hope you comment, pass it on and tell others!

yours in awkwardness
