look up any word, like full-donald:
 
1.
That arm that has nowhere to go when cuddling, spooning or sleeping next to someone else. It usually leads to wishing arms could be pulled off and then put back on afterwards.
*after trying to settle into a comfortable spooning position* uh oh, it's the return of AWKWARD ARM!!!

Just an awkward arm with nowhere to go. It normally comes into play during spooning, when you are the big spoon. When you spoon, you're on one side, laying on one arm. The top arm is usually wrapped around your partner. The other arm is squished and uncomfy.
Things to do with your awkward arm:
1.) Massage your partner
2.) Stick under them. and wrap around
3.) Grab his/her butt
4.) Guys: Cover your boner!!
*To your little spoon:
One sec, I have to move my awkward arm.

The real problem though is that those who are awkward around girls over-think the spooning issue and assume there's a problem (this is a larger issue as the result of movies such as Mallrats). There is in fact no problem, assuming the dude is the big spoon. The dude, assuming he is a left-leaner, need only put his right arm over the chick, his left arm under her through the natural crook created by her neck, clasp the arms together through the boobs and be safe. D'uh. Fucking tards.
Dude #1: Schwoah brah, I just realized that there's no need to amputate my awkward arm, the real issue is that I'm just awkward!

Dude #2: Yeah dude, suicide's really the only option for you.

The arm that goes on the bottom,under you body, when spooning. It always seems to get in the way and you don't know what to do with it and then it cramps up.
Last night I was spooning with Lorenzo and his awkward arm was poking me in the back, so I made him put it above my head.
