My 170 Modern Awkward Comics That You’ll Probably Relate To
There's awkward, and then there's modern awkward. What's the difference? Well, not even ten years ago, you didn't feel uneasy without your phone in public place, you didn't feel schadenfreude of someone's text messages split by each word, and you definitely didn't feel uncomfortable going out without any makeup on.
Mariya, also known as Pinks&Roses in the online comics society, perfectly illustrates these everyday awkward situations in her little black, white and pink girly sketches. She likes to keep her comic strips authentic and draws them mainly by hand, only adding the pink tones in Photoshop.
Mariya often illustrates her own problems in these funny comic strips, but sometimes she uses other people's misfortunes too. The purpose of her drawings, as she says, is "to spread a more lighthearted perspective on one's own daily life." And in our opinion, these funny comics indeed succeed at that.
Now, scroll along for a dose of awkwardly funny cartoons below!

Ohhhh my mum's homemade Scottish broth is the epitome of this comic!
OMG, so true! Or even worse - I usually don't wear makeup (my skin is super sensitive) and I went for a job interview. The feedback I got was "your qualifications more than justify hiring you for this position, however, our office expects our employees to maintain a certain level of professionalism and preparedness in their appearance." I was in a business suit and my hair was flawless - the only difference between me and the other women in the office was that I wasn't wearing makeup. Sigh.
I am not even sitting. I am lying down with board on my knees.
My girlfriend is quite the opposite. She will drink water from the first receptacle she finds in the dish rack. That includes empty jars and assorted containers, pans, shallow bowls and, in one memorable occasion, the tea kettle.
I used to get something like Hot Pockets while grocery shopping, and would throw them into the microwave as soon as I got home, that way they wouldn't be the temperature of the sun once I was done unloading the car and putting everything away
You're suppose to hug for 20 seconds. 20 seconds might feel a bit long, but it's to achieve the full effects of a hug. A hug can mean a lot some
Once I saw myself on video while exercising. NEVER do that! Never! it's even worse than this second picture.

There's also a third type, who like "negging" - you name your price, they get outraged and start insulting your merchandise, you, your family etc, claim they can find a better product for much less... and then ask for a discount.
