In a thread on Reddit, people have been sharing the worst first dates that they’ve ever been on, or heard about secondhand from a traumatized friend after the fact.
· “I had a girl try to convince me to cut off my long hair for the date. The first date,” says one guy. “She knew I had long hair, it wasn’t a blind date. She also brought her dog unannounced, insisted it go into the bar with her, then only talked about money for the next hour or two, constantly pestering me about how much I made. The second I caved in the date was over. Ms. Moneybags still let my apparently broke ass pay the tab.”
· “The day before our date he says his car is having issues and asked if I could pick him up. No problem. I show up and out he comes wearing silk shorts and a Rugrats tee shirt. I was wearing tights and little black dress. He sparks a blunt as he’s giving me crappy directions to the restaurant. Proceeds to tell me very loudly over dinner about his two restraining orders. I literally saw a woman stop her fork mid-bite to side eye where that confession came from.”
· “I was walking past a rickshaw one night with a couple in it, and the lady says to her date, ‘I always feel bad for these guys, I feel like I’m too heavy,’ And instead of reassuring her the guy says, ‘Oh don’t even worry about it, these guys could carry a moose!’ I think he knew as soon as it left his mouth that he wasn’t getting anywhere on that date.”
· “My friend was asked by a date (very early into said date) ‘Are you on your period? I have this strange talent where I can always smell when a girl is on her period.’ She picked up her bag and left immediately.”
