    Stuff like this always physically hurts to watch. He still handles it miles better than 99% of the posts I see on this sub though.

    Oh no, that backing away she did to his realisation she's not into him. He recovered better than most people though

    Ouch that hurts.

    I used to think that's what happened to 80% of kiss attempts, which is why I always hesitated and ended up never kissing.

    Until I learned to fucking man up and just do it. Have never had a kiss get rejected so far, and I'm not some Adonis or something.

    Wish I could tell my younger and oblivious self. And punch him for those missed opportunities.

    How is this cringe? Dude went for a kiss but girls not into it and that was that. No weird outburst, no cringy comments. No rapey vibe. Getting turned down isnt always cringe. Weak content

    I don't claim to know more than Gallowboob but shouldn't this be on r/cringe ?

    This is less cringe and more a masterclass in how to gracefully handle a denial.

    Don't make a scene, don't act like your ego is affected horribly, just roll on.

    So now we’re stealing stuff off of Barstool Sports’ Instagram and using the exact same tag, too?

    EDIT: It’s gallowboob, of course

    nothing cringy here.

    at least he's trying, that's more as what half the people on this site do

    God bless attempted kiss gifs

    Although check out the body language, he's got his arm around her and they're both leaned right in, I don't know the background but this looks like a not unreasonable time to give it a try

    She has a huge smile on her face and they're sitting almost on top of each other. Has your girlfriend never jokingly denied you a kiss? Jesus Christ I'm done with this sub. It's just pathetic at this point.

    Moral of the story - don't try at anything, because even if you fail gracefully, people will laugh at you.

    LPT:

    Ask the girl "do you want to make out" with a quiet voice and a smile on your face, if you want to make out.

    99% of the time she will be honest and respond with "no" or "yes" or she will just lean in for the kiss herself.

    This is a good technique because girls think it's cute and charming, is very straightforward, and it also helps in avoiding the awkward lean-in fiasco as seen in the OP gif.

    I have personally used this technique countless times and it always works as intended to either get the kiss or avoid the awkward.

    This also works if you are a girl.

    If you get a "no" it's easier to save face and say something like "dang, well ok, anyways as I was saying..."

    To women: if a guy is talking to you at a party, it's not because he's interested in what you're saying

    It isn't the time to go in for a kiss when she's talking about how cute her pet turtle is

    Proud to say this has only happened to me one time, but man is it fuckin awkward.

    This guy takes it just about as well as you can.

    I don't think this is very cringy. I'm sure he cringed a lot on the inside though, despite what his face says lol. He took the rejection like a champ, way better than 99% of people these days.

    She backed away but didn't turn or move away. She's just playing hard to get or needs more incentive.

    This isn't cringey at all. I can see how a basement dweller like /u/gallowboob can think that, though. All he does is repost content and not talk to girls, or anyone for that matter.
