Probably working up the courage to ask out my crush. She acted like she didn’t hear me, so I asked her again, and again she ignored me. Then she just started talking to someone else.
It wasn’t like publicly embarrassing or anything. Just depressing. I had girlfriends before her, and after her, but the way she just ignored me hurt.11

Have you seen those cliche movie scenes where a girl is running at a guy crushing on her and he gets all excited and smiles really big and goofy and opens up his arms slightly to hug her only for her to run past him and hug someone behind him?
That actually happened to me! That's so embarrassing. I was crushing on a girl who talked to me a lot and was really friendly but one time after school she was running my way with her arms open for a hug only to run past me and hug a girl behind me.
Also one time I was skating at the skate park on the vert ramp (I was the only one on the vert ramp; most people skated the street course or mini-ramps) and a bunch of pretty girls from school showed up to watch me while I was getting ready. So I grabbed the board and dropped in and tried to do a big air trick I was still working on (540 McTwist) only to land on my butt and fracture my tail bone.
So I was hopping around to play it cool while the girls asked if I was okay and I was like, "Yeah, no problem! It happens all the time." Then I tried to keep skating in front of them but I was in so much pain that I could barely do anything.
Then I went to the hospital later and discovered I had fractured my tail bone. So I had to show up to school the next day with a donut pillow I carried around everywhere since I couldn't sit down without it.
That cliche movie scene pretty much happens with all teenagers who are having with crush 😭 it also happened with me. Except my crush was waving and I waved back not knowing his friend is behind me. So to play it cool I just kept waving and went front but my crush's friend screamed, "Whom are you waving at? No one is infront of you!" like seriously I would have murdered him in the place if my crush wasn't there. He made me look dumb. And due to that my best friend knew about my crush! Ughhh it still feels frustrating to think about it.
Dangg I'm getting second hand embarrassment reading the skating part.

Crushes in teenage years are a huge source of embarrassment as I see it! :-D Nowadays I look back on it and laugh. I tend to think embarrassment is something "taken" as though we inflict it on ourselves. I seem to be immune to most forms of embarrassment nowadays. I've just learned to laugh at myself.
I also had this one time when my mother's apartment was infested with cockroaches. We were a bit poor so she couldn't afford to call the exterminator. So one time I was in class and opened up my backpack to get out textbooks and a roach came out of my backpack and everyone saw it. Then I had to deal with all the teasing of being the "cockroach kid".
Actually I'm okay with being embarrassed infront of strangers and all but getting embarrassed in front of close people like friends and cousins and crush, that's a big deal. You need to handle the teasings throughout your life.
Oddly I think I'm reversed and tended to take more embarrassment from strangers than close friends and fam. I think it's because my close friends and fam understood me; I didn't feel a need to protect my reputation with them. :-D I was kind of concerned with reputation in my teenage years.
I don't really react to any thing. But when people close to me know that I'm embarrassed by something then, it's the end of my reputation.
