    1. The study buddy:

    "During undergrad, I was studying with this really cute guy, and we had been flirting — or so I thought! Because one time, he folded a paper into the shape of a heart and gave it to me! So, I was head over hills for him since day one, and I spent all my time with him staring at him.

    Finally, one day, my friends convinced me to invite him to my birthday party. My friend talked me up about embracing this opportunity for the both of us, because she also had a crush on him, too!

    Anyway, when I invited him, he told me that he'd love to go — BUT that he was going to PICK UP HIS GIRLFRIEND first. What a major disappointment." - Joyce Ferreira

    2. New Year's eek:

    "I found out that my ex was going to be at the New Year's party I was going to, and I was worried it would ruin my night. So I invited a crush from a nearby city to come, but he actually invited me to his city and said we could celebrate with his family. So I bought this killer outfit and packed my bags.

    He picked me up at the bus station, and we had lunch at the mall because according to him, it would take too long for lunch to be ready at his house. Everything was running smoothly until he said, 'I have a lot of relatives staying in the house, so we won't be able to able alone for a while, but I want to get to know you better.'

    Long story short: We went to a motel. And when we were done, he said: 'I got something to tell you. Don't be upset, OK? But there's no way you can spend New Year's with us. My whole family will be there, and they'll think you're my girlfriend. But don't worry, I'll take you to the bus station again.'

    I've never felt SO STUPID in my entire life. He dropped me off at the bus station and, to avoid feeling like an even bigger loser, I called a friend in town and ended up spending New Year's with him. And it was one of the best New Year's ever! Strangely." - Bruna Lopez

    3. The lost bet:

    "Three months before I turned 18, I went out with a bunch of friends, and I decided to make a bet with a friend on who could drink more vodka. Of course, as a tiny girl, I lost. And it hit me hard! I got up to go to the bathroom at one point, and everything was spinning, so I peed myself and threw up.

    The end result: I was taken to the hospital because I almost was in an alcoholic coma. They called Child Services because I was still a minor, and my friend called my mother. I was so nervous that they had to give me sedatives when I saw my parents at the hospital. The day after, at home, my parents were laughing their asses off at me.

    To this day, I feel stupid and humiliated about making the bet, but after hearing some family stories, I realized that my aunts, my dad, and even my grandma had all done stupid stuff after drinking too much. It is what it is, right?" - Raissa Pelagagi Ximenes

    4. Dressing for success:

    "Last year, I had a crush on this Paraguayan boy from college. I always tried to dress up for that class we had. This one time, I wore lipstick, stockings, and a dress that showed off my cleavage and a lace bra. But every time I was looking hot, he skipped class.

    The day I looked plain ugly, he showed up. Like the crazy person that I am, I made up a story about interviewing foreign people for a project in order to get his number. I later sent him interview questions and then kind of opened up my heart to him and said I thought he was cute. And the son of a bitch replied: 'Thanks, have a good day.'" - Rita Paiva

    5. The mysterious Tinder match:

    "I matched on Tinder with this girl from the co-working space I worked at. She had been working there for a little while, but I had never seen her in person. So I told my friends about her and showed her picture to them at work.

    Two days later, she sent me a message on the app because she was pissed about me showing her Tinder profile to everyone. Apparently, she had been having lunch at the table NEXT TO MINE, and I didn't see her. I was so embarrassed. I apologized and even asked her out for a beer as a second chance, but she never spoke to me again. To this day, I still haven't seen her in person, and if I did, I don't think I would recognize her." - Awa Maia

    6. The MSN mixup:

    "My friend and I used to switch MSN emails so she could login to mine while I was logged on hers. She knew I was in love with her cousin, and she tried to set me up with him. Then, one time, I logged in her MSN and asked him myself, while pretending to be her: 'Lukas, why don't you go out with Barbara?" He replied: 'You know very well why.' And I was like: 'No, I don't." And we went back and forth...

    Until he said: 'Because I am in love with you, Miriã. I love you and I've told you that thousands of times.' I was in shock." - Bárbara Jardim

    7. The flower fight:

    "This one time, a giant bouquet of flowers was delivered to the office with my name on it. I texted my man to thank him, but he said he didn't send anything. I read the card again and realized it was for another Larissa, not me. At the end of the day, I lost the bouquet and my man, because he thought I was cheating on him with somebody else." - Larissa Miziara

    8. Peeling out against patriarchy:

    "I was walking with a friend to our college parking lot, which was under construction. As we walked by, a group of construction workers started cat-calling us. I got really angry.

    And to show how upset I was, I peeled out with my car and ... drove STRAIGHT INTO A TREE that was in the middle of the parking lot. To this day, I can hear their laughter. I was so embarrassed by my bad driving that I didn't even get out of the car to see the damage. I just drove away, without looking back." - Diana Corrêa

    9. The staircase incident:

    "I was at a 15th birthday party, and the ballroom had a spiral staircase. There was a gap between the staircase and the wall, and all the kids who reached the last curve of the stairs would just jump through the gap instead of walking down the stairs. Since I was very well behaved, I didn't do that. I just walked down the stairs.

    But then, I tried to be cool and do it too, and I GOT STUCK! My dress was hanging up while my legs, panties, and tights were swinging, and my sister was trying to pull me off to save me. But she was laughing so hard that she couldn't do anything. I was desperately screaming for help and she was just laughing her ass off. It was one of the most embarrassing moments of my life." - Barbara Pelegrino

    10. Mission not accomplished:

    "I had been admiring this girl from a distance for months, because I had zero guts to go up and talk to her. Then, one day, at a freshman party on campus, I was with a friend waiting in line to grab a drink, and I told her I really wanted to talk to this girl. She was very supportive and encouraged me, so I went over to her, looking very confident.

    Little did I know there was a hole in my way. My foot got stuck, and I fell to the ground like a piece of poop. The girl saw me and came to help me, but I was so wasted that I just looked stupid trying to talk to her. She gave me a glass of water, and another friend came to help me. The day after, my foot looked like an elephant leg and, obviously, I never had the courage to talk to her again." - Luísa Gonçalves

    11. The test:

    "Once, during a test in fourth grade, everyone was asking to go to the bathroom. I really needed to pee, but when I raised my hand to ask to go to the bathroom as well, she said she wasn't going to let anyone else leave.

    I was afraid to disagree with her, so I tried to hold it until the end of the test. When I couldn't hold it anymore, I called her over. She took my test, and I asked her if I could go to the bathroom. But it was too late, and I ended up peeing myself when I got up. I ran away and cried because of all the embarrassment. But then I had to go back to the classroom, only to find out that I had gotten the worst grade in the class. As if it couldn't get more humiliating." - Rafaela Carvalho

    12. Catching the bus:

    "Once in college, I started feeling sick. So I left campus and started walking to the bus stop. There was a bus just like the one I always take at the stop, and it was about to leave. Since my bus only comes every half hour, I ran like crazy, tripped on the sidewalk, skinned my knee, and still missed the bus.

    The best part? It wasn't even my bus. I embarrassed myself in front of a bunch of students for a random bus." - Milla Massilon
