"The Feeling" refers to a type of second-hand embarassment one gets in awkward situations. You may have to look away, walk away or ignore to get rid of the uncomfortable tension in your stomach.
Nerds making out and canoodling in public may give you "the feeling."

If someone tells a story with too many graphic details in front of your boss or parent, you may get "the feeling".

If someone tells a corny joke or anecdote, you may get "the feeling". Same goes for over romantic, nostaglic, or schmaltzy sentiments.

If someone falls, farts, or makes a fool of themself and you are directly next to them, you may get "the feeling."

The feeling is acquired when you try to tell a joke, which you find very hilarious, but then nobody laughs and you're left to feel like a complete jackass.
Boy 1: -tells a joke- Wasn't that so funny?!
Boy 2: -stares at boy 1- no.
Boy 1: Uhhh.. damn it! I just got the feeling.
