1. used to describe a situtation in which two people of the opposite sex are said to be an "item," when they are actually just really flirtatious. the ex-boyfriend of the girl and the boy's best friend should be standing directly behind them
2. borderline illegal
Person 1: Something really awkward happened this morning.
Person 2: Oh man, I wasn't there.
Person 1: Oh it was good!
Person 2: Did you videotape it?
Person 1: Ahh, I should have. Yeah, that definitely wouldn't have been awkward, weird, or stalkerish at all.

Standing in an elevator alone with a naked old man, impatiently waiting to get to your floor which, of course, has to be at the top floor. Suddenly seconds extend to minutes, minutes to hours.
*Long, awkward silence*

Naked old man: *cough cough HHACCKK!!*

You: ....

Embarrassing and requiring great tact or skill to resolve.

When you are in a car with your group of blackout friends, being taken home by a really hot guy, when one of your friends starts yelling that he should make-out and finger you.
Sara: Hey Ricky, Meghan is hot! Make-out and finger her! Make-out and finger her!!!

Meghan: My life is Awkward...

Uncomfortable or embarrassing. Scientific evidence has proven that the birth of the word "awkward" comes directly from the invention of the game Truth or Dare.
Poor little Johnny didn't even know what awkward was until he played Truth or Dare and had to tell everyone who he liked.
