At its best, dating is a wonderful experience wherein two future soulmaters get to know one another. At its worst, it can be awkward, uncomfortable, and downright cringeworthy.

Absolutely everyone knows what it feels like to recover from a bad first date. So have a look below as these women of the internet share how men ruined their first date in weird ways.

Not even dogs kiss so sloppily.

"At the end of a date, when this guy had walked me to my building, we stood out front for a moment and he slowly came in for what I thought would be a kiss. Instead, he ended up grabbing my face and licking my cheek." - Reddit u/digitelle

Never talk about your ex.

During their first date, Redditor clean__underwear said the guy she was seeing wouldn't shut up about his divorce. He droned on and on for close to half an hour about how horrible his ex-wife was.

Since when did they start handing out membership cards?

"He told me that he belonged to a swingers sex club that met once a month. He even showed me his membership card. There was no second date because he kept comparing me to the girls he [expletive] the week before." - Reddit u/xisha47x

You've got to remember to take things slow.

Redditor wingsformarie7 is no prude by any means. But when her date offered to give her a key to his house after only one date, she figured it was time that she'd better move on.

What possible good could have come out of that?

"I went on a date a few weeks ago and he gave me a ride home, but he took me on a detour to show me his ex's house. Pleased to say that was the only date he got from me." - Reddit u/SantagetoutClause

There aren't enough Scooby Snacks in the world.

According to Redditor smalltwngrl, one time she was on a first date with a guy who spoke in a Scooby-Doo voice. Not just once or twice, but for the entire time they were out together.

You either be funny right now or I'm outta here.

"I made a nerdy joke that didn't quite land. He looked at me and said, 'That was lame. You're lame. Be funny, or I'm leaving.' Uhhh, OK." - Reddit u/lindseymarieee

Stop mansplaining things to your dates, fellas. It's not helping at all.

Redditor HenryAlbusNibbler said that they once had a man try and explain to them the reasons behind why women wear makeup.

This guy sounds like a regular Jordan Peterson!

Might I ask what exactly are you doing down there?

"I had a guy try to make me lie to him and tell him that girls don't poop because he said it 'ruined his time down there,'" Reddit user hannahjuettner said.

No thanks, I'm good.

Reddit user Lydious was out on a date when all of a sudden the guy she was with got up from the table to answer a phone call. When he returned, 20 minutes later, he explained he was talking to a female co-worker who needed him for talk therapy.

I guess he should have waited until the second date.

"On the first date, I had a guy who asked how easily I conceived and if I could still have children. I'm 32 and have a daughter from my first marriage." - Reddit u/coffeeshake

What do you mean you don't believe in women's rights?

"We went for a walk downtown and walked by a women’s rights monument and he told me he didn’t believe in it. I asked, 'You don’t believe in women’s rights?' and he said women were ruining this country." - Buzzfeed Community/aylasmithx9

G'day, mate.

Redditor firfetir said that her date kept trying to do a loud and very obnoxious Australian accent. On top of that, he told her that he didn't like her hair and then proceeded to ask if he could touch it.

It's probably best to take religion off the table.

Redditor sparklingsatine found out that the guy she was going on a date with was a Mormon. A few hours before they were due to meet up, he texted and asked if she'd be willing to convert to Mormonism.

What rules are you talking about?

"He kept talking about 'the rules' and how I was violating them. Rules like topics of conversation, letting him open a door, what time I scheduled the date, etc. WTF are these rules?" - Reddit u/Magicthighs42
