The 6 Stages Of Accidentally Poking Someone On Facebook

I tracked my emotional response to an accidental poke, so you don't have to.

1. Instant Paralysing Shock


Maybe your phone glitched, perhaps you accidentally poked the wrong person, it could be that you forgot poking existed altogether and instinctively poked someone that you haven't actually spoken to for 8 years.

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.

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.
