Top Ten Things You Usually Don't Feel Confident or Comfortable About Doing

I really just made this list because I wanted to put a question mark in my list title (I bet admin deleted it by now). But anyways, we all have situations in which we do that we have little confidence in, something that makes us uncomfortable but we just can't let ourselves avoid it. Enjoy!

The Top Ten

1 Asking someone on a date

Even if you're the popular jock, you'd be lying to say this doesn't make you just a bit uncomfortable. - Songsta41

Getting rejected is has been one of my worst nightmares when asking girls to the prom. Thankfully, it's never happened to me but I'm pretty sure everyone gets this feeling. - Mcgillacuddy

Definitely true. Especially if you are doing it for the very first time - Randomator

This seems impossible for me. How can I ever find a nice girl? I don't feel confident about it :( - Userguy44

2 Giving a speech

I've never had a problem with public speaking. I could keep a crowd entertained for hours with no notes and be absolutely at ease. It's much less stressful than carrying out a normal conversation.

I guess I'm weird. - PetSounds

The other day I had to recite 161 words of Edgar Allan Poe's "Anabelle Lee" and I had all the words memorized, but when I got in front of my class I went completely blank, messed up my words, and had to look down at my paper three times. I was excited to recite it, but failed while doing it. - music-is-life

I have to improvise speeches frequently in Model UN - the best way is to organize your thoughts, then clear your mind and let the words go. - keycha1n

I have social anxiety, so this is really hard for me to do. I’ll start to shake up and stutter a lot. I hate doing speeches for my job... - KingSlayer93316

3 Being interviewed

You have maybe an hour to talk to someone, and that one hour changes the course of your life. It can affect you positively or negatively, so it is uncomfortable to sit through that hour and hope it's helping you! - Songsta41

Nothing can beat this

Album reviews rule

I immediately forget everything when this happens, just when I’m super nervous or not in the mood at the moment I guess

4 Telling your parents you lost or broke an expensive item

I am prone to breaking things. Trust me. This is awful. - RockFashionista

Try telling them that you just put three holes in the wall and one in the door. Sticky tape fixes everything.

Asking some crush out is a piece of cake compared to this. - 3DG20

5 Admitting you like your crush

I used to be an asexual until I loved (yes I used the word love) this one girl and I told a few people and it was the most awkward thing ever, I wonder why God made me love this girl

I had to do this during a sleepover when we had "Honesty Hour." It's difficult, but it's not that bad as long as you're telling trustworthy people.

Jesus christ its weird and you will blush like a strawberry

I really liked this one guy and I think someone told him I liked him and then he completely ignored me. I fell into depression and all I ate that weak was skinny pop, chocolate, and tears. The worst part was was that we used to be best friends and now he won’t even talk to me. - NightJinx

6 Auditioning

I auditioned for my school musical and freaked out

To be honest, auditioning isn't that bad. I played my saxaphone at an audition- and I did well. I do pretty well under pressure

Especially those of Saturday Night Live.

SNL worker: Alright, you have five minutes, go.
That's it. And in other auditions you have to sing or do something else stressful. - Songsta41

Yes, well if you want to be a singer, and to be regarded as a singer, it probably is best and beneficial if you can relax as you're likely going to need to sing and be heard by someone sooner or later. - Billyv

Auditioning isn’t that bad to me, you just try your best and that’s it

7 Meeting a girl's parents

I'm surprised I didn't put this higher. This is such an uncomfortable experience because you never know how protective the dad is. - Songsta41

How 'bout meeting a boy's parents? Both my boyfriend (who used to be my crush) and I are afraid to meet one another's parents. The reasons are secrets, so I can't say why.

Yes, remember the comedies Meet the Parents and Meet The Fockers? - Metal_Treasure

Umm I'm a girl so no - thunderclanrocks

8 Seeing a homeless person stare at you

All the time, especially with Asians.

In Vegas you'll encounter these types of people a lot. In 2015 I was at Vegas and I was in front of the Mirage hotel waiting for the volcano to go off when a guy in a wheelchair came up to me and asked for money (along with the other tourists that were on the strip). Of course, no one gave him any money (including me) so he just left us alone.

I know, it's Sin City for a reason, but it was still really awkward.

I feel so guilty when we make eye-contact, like their situation is my fault. I mean, what do you do? Do you smile and walk on, stop and have a chat or give them your last few pence that you were going to use for your fare home? Gah, I just feel so awkward just thinking about it. - Britgirl

I don't know if that's ever happened to you, but sometimes it's not a begging look, it's just a crazy look and it's CREEPY. - Songsta41

I try to give them that uh-um-I'm-sorry-about-the-situation look and then they just stay at you! Yikes! Like do you smile? Or is that rude considering their situation? Do you look pitifully/sympathetically? Or will that make them mad that people pity them? I HAVE NO CLUE! I just diverted my gaze elsewhere. - Swiftdawn

9 Telling someone your weight

I feel very uncomfortable with this especially when the weight at the doctors

No problem at all! - Ananya

This is not a problem for me, I don’t care

That’s not a problem. As a matter of fact, I’m 218 pounds. I just told you my weight - KingSlayer93316

10 Trying not to throw up

My mom yells and slaps me when I throw up but my head hurt so I took Aspirin, I didn't know I was sick on the way to school but I was so sick I forgot Aspirin makes me feel sick and I threw up, got yelled at, and slapped! SO YAY. - Swiftdawn

Once when I was 18 I went to school while sick and I accidentally puked a bit in my mouth. I tried to hold it in but I failed and spewed everywhere. Oh yeah it was on the bus, too, and I had to clean it up afterwards.

I shouldn't have drink all the hot sauce

Yep, but I had to do it in the trash can because I was sitting on the toilet.

The Contenders

11 Going on a date

First date by blink - 182

Definitely the first one. I’m sure that will be an interesting experience when I decide to get a girlfriend and go on a date - Randomator

12 Sneaking snakes on a plane

Just, you know, if you ever wanted to sneak snakes onto a plane, don't expect to board the plane with them. - Songsta41

Haha oh wow I always sneak snakes on planes and it's the most uncomfortable thing to do ever I mean the snakes don't really cooperate with you most of the time and then you look awkward
(I am joking by the way)

Every time, this list just gets me - Martinglez

That’s hilarious.

13 Admitting to your crush you like them

ya man - Xiwen

14 Talking to your crush for the first time

Nah, I'm pretty confident about this. My advice to you is to BE calm, don't TRY to be calm. It has to feel natural. Now I know I'll get a lot of dislikes on this, but I don't care. I'm just trying to help.

After a while he'll love you and you guys will become boyfriend and girlfriend! Ahh... oops sorry that's my love life. You need to be lucky to find the perfect guy like I did. Even though I was never his crush.

This for me is easy. I have already known all of my crushes before I started to like them. I'm pretty awkward so all of my crushes will accept it

I'd rather solve integral calculus problems all day.

Crushes are stupid - thunderclanrocks

15 Walking around boys

And we can use the stereotype that girls want to suck some hamburgers if you catch my drift. Point is, it's a natural thing to do if you're attracted to someone. - Therandom

Yeah cause this is possible to do. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

#1 fear: People. #2:"Teenage" Boys

Very funny

16 Singing in public

This has been the most stressful moments, whenever I take the mic I feel my entire body shivering - Lynch

Well, I always sing quietly because I think no one can hear me. Turns out people can.

It's so much fun! In my opinion

17 Going for a prostate or colon exam

Yep. Finger up your ass. I never had to do this, but that is disgusting - KingSlayer93316

18 Going to the doctor
19 Having sex

Only if the vagina is too tight and the penis is too small - Therandom

No, I just lock the door - Swiftdawn

20 Meeting new people

I drown in pools of sweat in these situations.

Sorry but, the more the merrier

yup - thunderclanrocks

21 Eating food that doesn't taste good at someone's house

I went over to my friend, Roxie's house and her mother was trying this all meat dish (I'm a vegetarian) and the most uncomfortable thing I ever did was ask her if it was humane or not, she said no but I left four SMALL bits of food on my plate and my mom gave me a nice, good slap once we were home. Though she is hard on me, mom gives me more freedom, dad does, but I can't go here and there and over there is not good - Swiftdawn

It's the worst! I once had to eat bloody chicken, so I ate a bit of it and said "Oh, nice meal, I'm stuffed". The mother told me strictly to eat the rest of my food. I felt like puking.. Worst ever

It's horrible- I finish the dinner anyways because I don't want to be rude. Since I became vegetarian, though, the parents let me choose what food I want to eat

I just say I don't like it and tell them why sometimes I'm too honest - thunderclanrocks

22 Telling dirty jokes around your parents

My parents don't even know I tell dirty jokes. Or curse. - Therandom

Oh lord...
Or when your friends are trying to tell them to your parents. That happened during 2 minutes of my 14th birthday. Some of the most uncomfortable moments of my life.

I'm afraid it's the other way around for me. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

I do it all the time.

23 Masturbating

Never felt more comfortable to this

24 Listening to Satanic black metal at a family reunion

Holy s***. The looks they'll give you. They'll take you out back and perform an exorcism. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Not too weird, do this on a daily basis you get used to it - Morefunthanfun

Umm my family introduced me to that type of music

I would love to meet your family. They're either satanists or Norwegian. I bet Norwegian - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Good thing I listen to alternative music!
