2. Cringing

You kind of seize up in the knowledge that you've just given someone a notification that, not only have you ruined their day by making them have to open the app but they have now been notified that you're a moron.

5. Temporary amnesia

You go about your daily life, forgetting that you ever poked anyone. But then you remember when you see that person's name on your timeline.

6. Acceptance

Either they ignore you completely, or they poke you back. Maybe a crazy poke war will ensue that will go on awkwardly for years until one of you dies. I'm honestly not sure which would be better.
