I really wish I could be one of those smooth girls who flirt without being creepy. You know what I do instead? I giggle. A lot. I get annoyed by my own giggling. Also, I get awkward. really awkward. The other day, a cute guy smiled at me at Starbucks and I almost fell off my chair. I don’t think he noticed, but if we’re being real, he probably did. Needless to say, I’m not all that smooth.

I think I am sufficiently awkward to compose a letter to cute guys on behalf of awkward girls, so here you have it: an open letter to cute guys on campus.

Dear Cute Guy On Campus:

I don’t understand why you don’t love me the way Channing Tatum loves me.

Okay fine, Channing Tatum doesn’t love me. I just don’t want to believe that.

Anyway, you’re really cute. I’m all like:

…But less attractive.




For a certain type of guy, I could be quite the catch.

What I really mean is that I hope you’re awkward too.


So in lieu of Channing Tatum…


What do you say?



Awkward College Girl

What was the most awkward thing you’ve done on a date?
