In Honor Of Valentine's Day, Here Are Some Of The Worst First Date Stories Ever.
Valentine's Day is a day of love, although everyone has that story of the first date that went awry.
Below are some of the worst first dates people have ever had. Check them out!
1. Got drinks with a girl I met at a bar a week before. She invited me to a party at one of her friends' places downtown afterwards, so I went along.
Well, an hour later I rounded a corner and found her with her tongue down another guy's throat in the hallway. I just walked out and never talked to her again.
Honestly, I wasn't even that mad. I went and joined my friends at the bar, told them the story, and got a couple free rounds from the cute bartender who overheard. Ended up hooking up with her a couple weeks later.
2. He made reservations at one of the most expensive restaurants in our city. When I sheepishly offered to split it, he says, "oh, you didn't think I was going to pick this all up right? I don't have that kind of money." I don't care about how much money you have bro, but if we're splitting it, I get to have a say in where we are going. I was in college and could barely afford my half. I never answered him again after that.
3. When I was 20, I met a beach cop and he asked me out to dinner.
When I got to the restaurant he introduced me to his mother who he had also invited. I ordered a drink, excused myself to the restroom and walked out the door.
I did not see him again because a) despite living in Virginia Beach I rarely went to the beach, and b) he and his mom did not frequent the same bars and clubs as me.
4. She was very attractive and I thought it was going well. But when I mentioned something from the email she had written me, she denied ever emailing me. I laughed and said "well that's how we planned this," but she got angry and insisted we had never emailed.
I laughed it off, thinking maybe it was a joke. But she brought it up again and called me a liar. I told her I wasn't lying and then ... (Continued)
I told her I wasn't lying and then offered to show her her email on my phone. She said "you faked an email from me?!?" So I just got up and walked out. It was too crazy for me to deal with anymore.
5. She was one of my coworker's friends daughter. We met for lunch and she was incredibly horribly rude to the waiter. After she dropped a racial slur about him, I got up, paid the bill, apologized to the waiter, and left.
6. He farted.
Now one fart, that's just hilarious.
But multiple farts, making it sound like your digestive system is going to explode - combined with the smell of a thousand rotting corpses - just... no.
I don't date much, and he was a good guy. I just couldn't get past the endless farting.
7. Only once.
- He didn't look like his picture
- He had been doing his PhD in humanities for over ten years at a sub par university
- He lectured me on my current studies without even knowing what I was studying as he hadn't asked
- He proceeded to pontificate on a variety of political/social topics showing off but was dumb
I decided to wait out the first drink then leave. But he kept bringing the glass to his mouth THEN PUTTING IT DOWN WITHOUT A SIP to continue to lecture me about what he thought he knew something about. That one glass was going forever.
So I left.
8. I went on a date with a guy who was a few years older than me. He picked me up and we went to a decent restaurant and the conversation wasn't too bad.
When he asked me what I liked to drink I told him I wasn't a huge drinker and that I was honestly happy with just a Budweiser or occasionally a Shocktop with a slice of orange thrown in. He shook his head and slapped the table with his hand and then insisted that he order our drinks because he knew exactly what I would enjoy. He ordered me a really heavy, fruity tasting beer that I could only sip on and spent 30 minutes educating me beer. I nodded and tried to stay engaged but it was half an hour of different beers and "have you ever tried?...oh man, you haven't lived yet!"
I mean I guess some people are really into beer but it just wasn't my thing.
9. Got hooked up on a blind date. Go to the place we're meeting up and the guy isn't as bad as I thought. Conversation is flowing, pretty good time and I'm feeling him. Guy then proceeds to insert foot in mouth by complimenting me on my... (Continued)
Complimenting me on my English and how smart I appear to be for a Hispanic unlike others he's tried to date before.
I pulled out my wallet, threw a twenty on the table and bailed.
10. I met her at a bar, and her mom was there watching over her. Then we ditched that bar and we went to another club, hung out and ran into her step brother there. While we were talking with the step brother, a guy bumped into him hard and I had to get between those two as they were about to come to blows. This was Chicago too, "running" into him seemed too coincidental.
A little later, she said she saw a friend she was going to say hi to while I was waiting in line for us to get drinks. While waiting and after picking up the drinks, I saw her go say hi to the friend, talk for a few, then continue on her way, not heading back my way, and start dancing with a guy. I downed my drink, then hers, then beat it. We drove separately so no big, and figured I dodged a bullet somewhere down the line.
11. Yes. It was a first date, and we went to a party where he knew everyone and I knew no one. He went from ignoring me to (I think) completely forgetting I was there, so I left (we had taken my car). I went back to my dorm and hung out for a while, and went back when I knew the party was ending, because it was a rented venue and everyone had to leave.
12. One time I went on a date with this guy who was smart and cute. We were having a nice conversation, and he just casually remarked that he knocked up his ex and basically made her have an abortion. And he didn't even bat an eye telling that to a complete stranger. Immediately thought "nope" and told him I wasn't feeling it after the date.
13. Guy offered to buy me a drink. I don't drink, and had told him that before I agreed to go on the date, so I figured he'd just forgotten and I politely reminded him. But then he wouldn't let it go and kept making me justify why I don't drink. It got as far as him saying he couldnt think of any reason I would need to be able to think clearly before I nope'd the hell out. It's really a shame because prior to that he seemed really nice.
14. I always go on a date expecting to pay my half, but as you know, a lot of men pay for at least the first date.
Anyway, we were at a coffee shop and he stepped up to the counter, placed his order, looked back and me and asked me what I wanted. Since this seemed like a pretty obvious sign that he was going to pay, I gave him my order and said thank you. He paid for the coffees, handed me mine, and said, "don't expect (Continued)
He said, "don't expect this every time."
Are you kidding me?? I didn't expect this in the first place, jerk. Unsurprisingly, the date didn't get better.
15. Met this guy online who's totally my type, chatted for a few weeks and decided to go out and have dinner together. It was all good, and he was cuter than his picture. (which never happens) However, later he took out his phone and started texting his friend. I don't like to spy on people, so I didn't ask him what's he was doing. He continued to do so quite a while and I just sat there awkwardly eating my food. That's when I knew he's not for me.
16. It was the second date. I was 110 lbs 5'7" and he brought me a HUGE steak for dinner, like the size of a dinner plate. I could only eat a quarter of it (it was a good steak though) and he got irate with me over it. Dude, it sucks wasting food and I know that cost a pretty penny, but I was 110 lbs in a size 3 pair of jeans! I even told him I'd take it home, and he refused and ate it off of my plate.
No third date and never contacted him again.
17. Had been on a couple of dates with this guy. At his place, watching a movie. He climbs on top of me. I tell him I'm not comfortable. He does it again, adding, "I like shy girls."
18. He invited me over to his place for dinner. He filled us each a plastic cup with of some kind of grape wine (like a Boones Farm type). I asked for a glass of water, and he grabs a large Styrofoam Smoothie King cup, fills it with water, and hands it to me. Reddit. This cup had obviously been around the block a few times, because it had those teeth indentions everywhere on the brim of the cup. I ask,"Do you not have cups?" His response,"...that is a cup."
Technically, he was right. I mean, why invite me over for dinner if you're not prepared? He also only owned one knife, did not have any tables or chairs to sit at, and did not own any plates. He ate out of the skillet, I ate my food on the box it came on.
This dude was 30. Not some 19 year old who hasn't had time to get it together.
19. Was on a coffee date with a guy who initially seemed really nice. But he would not stop talking about Dr Who, even after I made it clear that I'd never watched it, had no idea what he was talking about, and wasn't interested in watching it to find out. I mean come on, how hard is it to pick up on the fact that we've been on this subject for the better part of half an hour and I've barely said anything?
Afterwards he insisted on walking me home, even after I said it was no big deal and only like a 7 minute walk (out of his way). I couldn't even ditch him at the tram stop, after telling him I thought we should just be friends. He still walked me to my door.
20. She would not stop talking about babies. Her friends had them, her sisters had them, her brothers had them and made sure it was perfectly, crystal clear, she did not have one.
21. She was from a "nuclear family" with lots of money. In itself, not a bad thing. However, she proceeded to go on a rant about "trashy" people from divorced/remarried and single parent families, and how those people would never amount to anything, that sort of thing. She also mentioned how she could tell I was from a traditional family with wholesome values, not some loser raised by a single mother or influenced by a runaway, deadbeat father (her words) because I was clearly raised right.
At this point, I get up from the table, track down the wait staff, and ask for separate checks. As she proceeds to call me an a**hole for not paying for her meal and acts confused about why, I tell her not to contact me again, but that I'll be sure to pass on to my single mother that people are noticing how well she raised me.
22. Met a guy online who lived about an hour away. We agreed to meet up closer to me and he told me he was just going to stay in town that night. I figured he had friends here or whatever. He gets to the date and he is clearly about 15 years older than his pictures represented. I figured I would finish the meal then GTFO. After dinner he insisted on walking me to my car and then said, "Ok, so I'll just follow you back to your place then?" I was quite shocked and a little scared for my safety so I said ok and then ripped out of that parking lot before he could get to his car.
23. I didn't realize I was on a date! My coworker mentioned we should grab dinner while finishing up a project we were working on, which seemed like a good idea, because it was after work, and I was hungry. While I was reading over his draft, he asked me ''how serious are things with you and (your fiancee)?'' Well, we've set a date, and I have a dress fitting coming up, so pretty serious.
24. It was an OkCupid date and we met for coffee after talking awhile. He had a sour look on his face when I got there, so I wasn't expecting too much. When our coffee came out, he said "I'm glad you didn't ask me to pay for that, because I don't think you should be drinking something with that many calories." I was prepared to roll my eyes and let it go, but then he ranted for about 15 minutes about how women were getting too fat and how they should be pressured to lose more weight. Eventually I stopped him with a, "You saw my picture! Why did you even agree to coffee?" His answer was, "I was hoping you had lost weight since the picture was taken, because no one would put themselves on a dating app in that condition."
25. Blind date, random restaurant. First thing he does is produce a folder of photos of him and various celebrities. Shows me them, one by one. He keeps...clutching at me.
After about 15 minutes of this, I say, "This isn't really - I don't think we're compatible. I think I should go" and get up to leave. He stood up too, and shouted at me as I left. No, I did not look back.
26. When I was 18 I went out with a guy who was 20 and said that he always got away with buying alcohol. He tried to impress me by buying a bottle of wine, but when the waiter asked for his I.D. he said he had forgotten it at home. That alone wouldn't have been too big of a deal but this happened at the second restaurant we went to that night. He had originally taken me to a much nicer place, but then after looking at the menu told me that he couldn't afford it and had us leave.
I don't actually care about any of that, man. I'm on a date with you because I want to get to know you. I don't care if we go somewhere inexpensive but don't try so hard to seem cool, especially if you can't pull it off.
27. Got set up with a guy. I knew he wasn't my type but figured what the heck, let's try something new. He took me out to the standard date restaurant in my city, which is boring but the food is good. Then all he could talk about is how amazing his Alma Mater is and how much Michigan sucks. He started saying some homophobic things, so I just got up and left.
"It wasn't me!"
There's not much you can do when the righteous fist of the law comes down on you. Call it a mix-up, or call it a mistake, if someone's pegged you at the scene of a crime there's not much you can do but trust the justice system to prove you innocent. However, that's a gamble, and just because you've been given a "not guilty" doesn't mean the effects won't follow you for the rest of your life.
Reddit user, u/danbrownskin, wanted to hear about the times when it wasn't you, seriously, it was someone else, when they asked:
