I haven’t had any serious dating disasters in a while, maybe because I wasn’t dating for a while but whatever the reason—Thank God. I find that when you’re in the perils of a really awful date, there is absolutely nothing funny about it. However, once you begin recanting his strange behavior to your girlfriends—it is filled with lots of dramatic playback, after all a girl’s gotta get her kicks somehow. I wanted to find out just how many people experience the bad date scenarios and live to tell the tale. Check out a few of our readers and what they had to say about their dates from hell!
Daniel, Brooklyn, NY– I was out with this girl for our first date and she went to the bathroom. After a really long time she came back and said, “I think you have to drop me home. I responded
“why”. She says: “Because I have a really heavy flow and I think my tampon is stuck inside me.” Gross, now who could finish a meal with that visual stuck in their heads.
Kim, Chicago, IL—I was on a date with this really cool dude or so I thought! When we got to the restaurant, he told me he left his wallet at home (how lame). So, I said it’s ok, I’ll pick up the tab. He then ordered the most expensive meal on the menu and I gave him a questioning look and he said: What! Don’t act like u “B” don’t do it all the time—%$@& that it’s my turn. So I got up, said I was going to the bathroom and made a bee-line for the front door thinking “oh yeah—well f you too.
Neal, Queens, NY—I met this girl at a club and we ended going back to my place, I guess you could call it a one-night stand. Anyway, in the middle of it, I smelled this real funk and didn’t know where it was coming from, until we changed positions—then I realized– it was her!
Allison, Philadelphia, PA—This guy once told me on a date that “I should be glad he gave me a chance, since I’m one cheeseburger away from becoming fat and he don’t usually go out with fat girls.” I almost spit out my martini. Then I proceeded to let him know that after the little penis story I heard about him, he should be happy I accepted.
Monica, D.C.—I was on a 5th date with this guy and we were hitting it off so well, I decided tonight was the night. Just as we were about to get hot and heavy, he says “oh I think you should know that I have herpes, but since I don’t have a break-out we’re safe.” Holy $#!%. I ran the hell out of there and contacted the Health Department to see if I could report his nasty butt but the lady told me they only report cases of HIV. OMG, I guess I should just be grateful he told me first.
