20+ People Confess The Most Embarrassing Thing They Did For Love

Falling in love (or, more often, in “like”) is rarely a gracefully-executed endeavor. More often than not, we end up falling all over ourselves in an attempt to look desirable, cool and available (but not too available), and end up crashing and burning spectacularly — some more than others.

Slate’s Nicole Cliffe recently asked her followers to share the most embarrassing stories of the things they’ve done in the name of love. And, spoiler alert: they’re pretty cringe-worthy.

While you can’t help but feel embarrassed for these poor folks and their former selves, you also have to admit that it’s somewhat reassuring to hear that everyone is pretty much in the same awkward boat when it comes to matters of the heart.

Let’s take a gander at some of the more entertaining and priceless responses, shall we?
