They could always be worse.July 19, 2018 at 5:42 am #764151
LOL. It’s probably still preferable to Bill Cosby but not as bad as finding out your date collects dolls or that they happily embrace flatulence.July 19, 2018 at 8:07 am #764268
I’ll let the world guess which of those dates happened to me. Have we ever done a worse date thread?July 19, 2018 at 8:27 am #764288
The article left out how the second date went.July 19, 2018 at 9:22 am #764308
Airport area gas stations are so romantic.
My therapist told me one of her worst date was a guy who was first saying things she found very insensitive as a therapist. She steered the conversation to hobbies. He said he photographs glass. She asked more about that. It turned out he had a collection of glass dildos in his basement that he enjoyed taking photos of. I’ve luckily never experienced anything too bad.July 19, 2018 at 11:48 am #764323
I was wondering what a God sister was but apparently they meant godsister, which is the daughter of your godparent?July 19, 2018 at 11:54 am #764324
A friend had a bad date a few months ago. The guy spent about fifteen minutes talking about his germophobia and how he would have to go to the “potty” to wash his hands several times. (He kept using the word “potty”.) He also talked about how he sells coke and poor people buy it, and how there are lots of types of murder to choose from if one wanted to be a murderer (patricide, infanticide, etc.) He was losing his job a couple of days later and was 34 and still living with his parents. And he said how he was going to take a nap while driving home on the interstate because it’s a straight road and therefore good for napping.
How do these people exist??July 20, 2018 at 9:31 am #765451
A friend of mine went on a date who kept going to the bathroom to snort coke.
(He had previously worked at a shipping depo and was familiar with visible effects the various stimulants some truckers abused to do super long shifts.)July 20, 2018 at 10:31 am #765510
I had a date (NYE – overnight with a few other couples) that was rude to the waitstaff and then tried to get me drunk. When I wasn’t interested in hooking up he stopped speaking to me. Overnight. Next morning. Breakfast at IHOP. Nothing.
Shit for brains. I will never let my cousin forget (she set it up).July 20, 2018 at 10:32 am #765511
IDK at some point, women have to bow out of the fuckery.
Dude showed up to her house without his own car and asked her to drive. redflag #1
He couldn’t decide where to take her to eat so they ended up at an area gas station. redflag # 2 & 3.
He asked her to go in and buy him a cigar. redflag #4
And ‘reaching out to her from out of the blue to go to dinner’ isn’t a redflag but it’s definitely a pink flag.
And the Godsister, did she not recognize the car? And if they went to the drive-in (’cause who goes to a drive-in on a first date. Drive-in screams, ‘sex on the first date with no effort’), and he didn’t have any money to get in, she should have turned that car around. Also, they knew this dude from growing up, they knew what kind of dude he was. Why get involved with a bum ass dude? SMH at the foolishness.July 20, 2018 at 10:41 am #765518
@Cleopatra I think the drive in was the way for the driver to park the car and wait for the friend to show up and take her car back. Otherwise I agree with everything you’ve said. YIKES. How can women not see that this is bad?
If he can’t decide where to take you your car shouldn’t leave the driveway. I’d be telling him that I needed to know where we were going so that I knew which way to drive. I think I’d also ask how we were paying for the evening and make sure he was paying his own way. I think women should at least just meet the guy at the location of the date for the first date so that they can leave whenever they want and so that they don’t have to depend on the guy and so that he doesn’t know where they live. They should also pay there own way to show that they are independent and not using him for a free meal or drink and so that he has no delusions that they owe him anything.July 20, 2018 at 10:58 am #765538
I haven’t had anything too horrific happen on a first date. 15 years ago or so I went out with a guy that my Aunt set me up with, it was her boyfriends son. I saw photos and thought, ya he isn’t bad looking. I met up with him and we went out for dinner and he talked about himself non-stop and he was so braggy about the house, cottage, trucks, cars, his perfect stainless steel kitchen that he owns…at 27 years of age no doubt! It was such a turn off that I knew there would not be a second date. A few days later he called me at work (very annoying) to tell me he was in an accident and it was on TV and I should tune in to see it. I was at work so I said, glad you’re ok but I am not going to watch it. And that was it, we never had contact again.
Then 10 years ago or so I’m visiting my mom who vacations in Florida and my Aunt and her boyfriend are there. He’s drunk and goes on and on how I was such a snob to his son and that it would never have worked out bc his son told him I was “high maintenance”. I laughed in his face and said, that’s interesting because he did all the talking about all his fancy possessions and I barely got a word in edgewise. Ok, pal!
Another dude I met up with, I had been chatting with on POF (7 years ago), and he looked nice-ish looking, except there were no photos of him smiling with his teeth showing. We were talking on the phone and somehow that came up, he said he has nice teeth, that he was just at the dentist. (I was relieved honestly)…I said that’s good bc one of my issues is bad teeth…it just is! They don’t have to be pearly white or straight but good hygiene is important. We agreed to meet up and the first thing I see is his teeth and how they are practically falling out of his mouth. We met at a Tim Hortons and he put 6 sugar and 6 cream in his coffee. So disgusting. hahahaha
