My therapist once had his arms spread like he wanted a hug and even though I was super uncomfortable with the idea, I hugged him anyway. Turns out he was just gesturing to the office door with one arm and inviting me to leave with the other. It was terrible and awkward and the worst.
If it makes you feel better, once during graduation practice as I was walking off the stage, my teacher held out his closed fist and naturally I fist bumped it. He gave me a weird look and told me "I was pretending to hold out your diploma. Please don't fist bump me during the ceremony." Since I was on the stage it was in full view of many of my classmates who found the whole exchange quite amusing. My embarrassment was brought up multiple times during graduation. Moral of the story: we all do embarrassing things, don't sweat it OP
Not that bad OP. One time I was on the subway and someone waved at the person sitting next to me. Automatically, I waved back without thinking and they gave me the weirdest looks. I just owned it and winked at them.
