People Get Real About The Worst Dates They've Ever Been On

Dating is like a box of chocolates; you know which person weirdo you're going to get.

They could be sweet and romantic, or they could be next-level cray and do any or all of the following: talk about your future kids together, cry over their ex, or invite their parents.

Sadly, first dates like these do happen. Here, people got real about the worst dates they've ever been on.

The crappy date.

When you gotta go, you gotta go... Well, one girl had to go about 10 minutes into her date. The Redditor shared that she asked him to pull over the side of the road and everything.

The fifth-stage clinger.

"Wasn't necessarily the date, which was bad on its own, but the fact that she hung out in my parking lot for two hours after she dropped me off 'incase I changed my mind about doing something after dinner.'" - u/deleted

The picker.

"Went on a blind date with a lady who wouldn't stop picking at her scabs. Just made a pile out of them on the restaurant table. I excused myself to use the washroom and when I came back my soup was there but the pile of scabs wasn't. No I didn't eat the soup." - u/sarin77

The creep.

This girl went on a date with a guy who was very open about not looking for anything serious.

Unfortunately, he was also very open about the fact that he was a creep when he started touching himself.

The heartbroken ex.

"Right off the bat he lays on the couch goes on his phone, I have nowhere to sit and end up on the floor. He then opens his exes facebook page and proceeds to show me pictures of her. When he was done doing that he fell asleep. I had didn't have a car at the time so I called a ride and played his Xbox while I waited." - u/caterpillar2197

Short ego, little man.

Heels are a common first-date shoe. It raises our height and self-confidence! Even so, this girl's date had a serious gripe with it since he said that it made him less tall than her.

The Aussie hater.

"I'm Australian. My profile said I was Australian. First thing that comes out of my dates mouth, 'I hate Australians.' Didn't last long lol." - Upio. Does that mean she hates adorable kangaroos, too?!

The rambler.


One girl went on a date with a guy who Wouldn't. Stop. Talking.

When she finally pointed it out, he let her talk but also pulled out a notepad to take notes of what he wanted to say when it was his turn again.

"I'm sure it's not really that bad and also i'm sure has happen to basically everyone at least once - but I had a date spend literally the ENTIRE hour coffee date looking at his cellphone. Sooooo uncomfortable." - u/techinicolour

The broke joke.

There's a very good chance this girl went on a date with a homeless man.

That's because all four of his credit cards were declined. He then gave her a sticker to his welding company as a thank you.

The family affair.

"First date. Dinner at his mother's. With his brother and the mothers crazy housemate. After dinner we watched iron chef with all of them while sitting on the floor because there wasn't enough chairs. His mother was talking to us about using vibrators when doing the housework to make it more enjoyable." - u/beksticles

The negotiator.

When a guy offered to pay for this girl's movie date, she assumed he was just being a gentleman.

Not so — later he asked for a sexual favor to pay him back, saying it "was the least she could do."

"She told me she the only reason she was dating was to find someone to pay her rent and pay for her kids as well and even asked if I was up to the challenge. Needless to say it didn't work out for her." - u/whodamanb1

The "emergency."

There's nothing worse than a date canceling at the last minute.

Well, that is unless your date's so-called "emergency" turned out to be a lie and you found them playing pool at the bar. Poor guy.

Dirty John.

"He spent the entire time talking about himself. Whenever I tried to ask him for more detail, I would unwittingly trap him in a lie. After a while, I was finding it more embarrassing than he was (he couldn't even quite agree with himself on what town he lived in)." - u/lechatcestmoi

The bum attire.

People usually go all-out in first date attire. This poor gal had a guy pick a fancy wine bar only to show up in ratty shorts, a t-shirt, and flip-flops. Meanwhile, she was all dressed up.

The cheapo.

This girl went on a date with quite the charmer. He told her not to order anything too expensive or too much food since he had blown all his money on a new pair of boots.

"When I was 16 I was into punk rock and being an angsty atheist. Some guy in my religion class asked me if I wanted to go to a local rock show with him. I agreed. Turned out the 'rock show' was a church youth group with a Christian rock band. I showed up in fishnets, combat boots and a leather jacket. It was extremely awkward." - u/angry_manatee

The disaster.

"He drove my car, crashed it into a parked vehicle, and later revealed to me that he was struggling with the fact that he is gay. We are still friends! But that one was a doozy." - u/thewileyseven
