look up any word, like hipster:
An especially awkward relationship between two people who were once really, really close but suddenly stopped talking to each other for one reason or another. This could be due to a breakup, backstabbing, argument, etc.

Signs of an awkquaintance include never talking to each other, awkward smiles in the hallway, and avoiding each other whenever possible.
Selena: Hey, I heard about your breakup with Joe. Are you guys still friends?
Demi: Not really. More like awkquaintances.

Selena: Oh, that sucks.

Demi: Yeah. OMG, here he comes, let's get out of here!
