I was living in Miami at the time and was new in town. This guy from my hometown asked me out on a date and since I didn’t know anyone I accepted. However he didn’t own a car, but a tiny motorcycle and he offered to pick me up. I’ve never ridden a motorcycle before, so I was scared, but I had no choice but to agree. First he didn’t have a spare helmet. Then while we were in the highway the bike starts making weird noises and just stops… in the middle of a highway! I was so scared for my life lol! Anyhow, he fixed the bike and then we get going. I really had to pee and we were near his apartment so we stopped there. This was the real dealbreaker. When I went to his bathroom it was a complete MESS, like body hairs ALL OVER, dirty toilet with mold and weird smells.. just gross…

Needless to say, I just avoided his calls until he never called again!

There are some good (bad?) ones on here!  I’ll add mine.

Brace yourself, as it’s a long one, best told over a few drinks. In fact, go ahead and pour yourself a glass of wine right now.

My friend and I were sitting at a bar one evening when two guys came up to us and started to chat.  The conversation started with the first guy telling me that his friend thought I was cute, or something to that effect, very middle school-esque. They seemed nice enough, but neither of us were particularly interested.  After a little while, the first guy told me his friend could do a back flip.  Intrigued, I asked him to show me.  He said he’d only do it if I gave him my number.  I agreed, not thinking he’d actually do it.  He did.  I wrote said number on a napkin. I should have given him a fake.

A few days later, he called, asking if he could take me out the next weekend.  Even though I wasn’t really interested, I agreed, figuring I would give him the benefit of the doubt.  He told me I should dress up as he wanted to take me to one of his favorite places.  No problem.  I actually got a little excited – what girl doesn’t like to be treated to nice places?

I was house sitting for a friend, so I asked him to pick me up there.  After he picked me up, we had some normal, friendly conversation as we drove toward the restaurant.  Not a bad start, really.  Then his phone rang.  He ignored it.  Then it rang again. And again and again and again.  He kept ignoring it, and looked really irritated.  When it rang for the sixth (or seventh? I don’t remember) curiosity finally got the best of me and I asked who was calling.  He said it was just his mom.  Concerned, I said that maybe there was an emergency if she kept calling him so many times, and he should answer it.  He said, “No, I really hate my mom.  She does this ALL THE TIME.”  Red flag.

So back to the drive.  It turned out he wanted to take me to his favorite place in Cincinnati.  We live in Dayton.  That is an HOUR drive, at least.  If you’ve ever made this drive, you would know that there used to be a giant statue of Jesus on the side of I-75.  (It was struck by lightning two years ago.)  Since I don’t really think Touchdown Jesus is a good topic of conversation on a first date, I casually ignored it.  He felt the need to point it out, as if I were a tourist who had never seen it before.  And when he asked me what I thought about it, I replied honestly that I thought they should have taken the hundreds of thousands it cost to build it and used it to feed starving children somewhere else in the world. His response, “Good, so you’re not religious or anything.”  I am religious.  Red flag #2.  

We finally arrived at the restaurant.  Turns out it was one of those Japanese Hibachi places.  Because there were only two of us, they seated us at a station with another group who is there to celebrate a birthday.  Not very intimate, like you would expect for a date, but at this point I am relieved.  We ordered our food, and I requested steamed rice instead of fried rice.  He FREAKED OUT.  According to him, this is THE BEST FRIED RICE ON THE PLANET.  I held my ground.  (My mother is from Hawaii and taught me to make fried rice at a young age, so I’m personally biased to think MY fried rice is the best, and so I usually don’t order it when I’m out.)  I didn’t think it was necessary for him to have such a dramatic reaction!  When I got my steamed rice, he insisted that I try his fried rice, and tried to feed it to me.  I politely took the fork away from him, and fed the rice to myself.  (I actually didn’t like it, I thought it had too much garlic in it.)

I spent the rest of dinner speaking to him as little as possible, just answering yes and no to questions, but not really contributing to the conversation any more.  I was done.  When he excused himself to the restroom, I chatted with the guy next to me at the table, wishing I was there with him instead!  He should have asked for my number or offered to take me home, I would have gone gladly.  Easy target.  =)

When dinner was finally over, I let him pay for the meal.  I thought finally this was over, or at least it was an hour from being over, as we still had the drive home.  Except it was well over an hour – we hit terrible traffic near Jesus.  And then he ran out of gas.  

Seriously.  What guy takes a girl on a first date an HOUR away, and then doesn’t even think to fill up his car before the trip?

When we finally made it back, I kicked off my heels and RAN back to the house.  He actually called me back later in the week to ask me on a second date.

I’ll keep it brief, since mentioning all of the highlights requires at least 2 pages.  But I went on a date with a guy who had lied about his age, and ended up confessing to me over dinner that he was 20 years my senior (granted, he looked great for his age, but still…he lied).  He asked me if I wanted a glass of wine, and when the waiter came and I ordered a merlot, my date looked at me and said that he liked to “set a good example”, so wouldn’t be drinking…but that I should “definitely get a glass…you need it”.  After dinner, he told me that he had reserved a hotel room for the night, and thought we should go ahead and head that direction.  Date. Over.  

The good part was that I was a poor college kid at the time, and had ordered the juiciest, most expensive, delicious steak.  The free dinner may have been worth the hour-long torture.  🙂

@ASDF:  Free dinner – sometimes the only consolation for a terrible time.  =)

I don’t feel bad because I’ve also been on dates where the guy “forgot” his wallet…

This isn’t really bad for me per-se, but it’s haunted me ever since. I was working as a waitress at IHOP and my coworker asked me if I wanted to hang/go out after our shifts were over so I said why not? Well, he was a little touchy feely, nothing bad, just hugging and putting his arm around me while we were walking and I’m just not a ‘touchy/huggy’ person. Anyway, we end up at a friends house and I pretty much have to shoo my date home because I can tell he’s sleepy and he worked a double that day and had school the next day. He doesn’t show up for work the next day (which was THE 9/11) or the day after that. He’s missing for about a week, I get asked questions by the police, etc. Turns out on his way home that night he had fallen asleep at the wheel and had went off a bridge on his way home and died. Even though I KNOW that it wasn’t my fault, I feel guilty that I didn’t try to drive him home myself, or that I should have said no to going out. I didn’t know he had worked a double until we were out, but I just feel responsible for what happened to him.

I don’t mean to bring down the humourous vibe that this thread has :/

My worst date ever happened when I was 30 and just divorced.  My friend convinced me to begin dating again- that it would be a fun way to relax and enjoy adult male company and after 6 months I agreed to be fixed up on a blind date.  The guy and I talked on the phone twice, he sounded nice enough, seemed to care about the community and worked as a defense attorney for the state- so I was actually looking forward to the date.

The night of the date, we meet at the restaurant.  He was handsome and brought me a red rose.  The restaurant had a great vibe, soft jazz and the appetizer was yummy.  We talked about the usual 1st date stuff- our jobs, our hobbies- and it all seemed nice… for a few minutes.  Before we begin to order, however, he puts his menu down, looks into my eyes with a calm expression and says, “So we f-ing or what?  Because this spot is expensive and we can end the date now if we aren’t f-ing…” 

When I looked at him in shock and sputtered, “I don’t have casual sex with people I don’t know,” he nodded his head and said- “ok, do you mind if I go and talk to that woman at the bar then?”  I said “sure”, got up and made a beeline for the door…

Needless to say, I NEVER took my friend’s date suggestions AGAIN!

  • Wedding: November 2012

My worst first date experience was not nearly as crazy as in the person was insane, but more that things just went terribly wrong.  We went out to eat and his ex and all her friends just so happened to be at the restaurant.  He apologized profusely, but I knew he didn’t mean to put us both in such an awkward situation so I let it go.  Dinner and conversation (and wine) were great once the group left us alone.  Then we went to the movies.  It was like a miracle, the car in the very first spot was pulling out just as we approached so we got the best spot!  We get out of the car, and his phone rings.  It was hid dad yelling at him because he didn’t take the dog out.  I could understand this but my date was in his mid twenties and owned his own home 30 min away from his parents.  It gets so bad that we have to drive all the way to his dad’s house to take the dog out rather than watch the movie.  I just took it in stride because I really liked this guy and thought of it as another opportunity to talk to him.  When we get to his parents house, he realized that he didn’t have a key to his dad’s house.  Being the classy broad that I am, I promptly broke into his dad’s house to take the dog out.  He thought it was the most bad ass thing he had ever seen.  Finally, we head back to catch the late movie and his little brother calls and says he needs a ride so we have to drive all over god’s green earth to pick this kid up and then he proceeds to spend the rest of the night hanging out with us.

So how did it turn out?  I am marrying him in 6 months 🙂

I met a guy online. I’d e-mailed/chatted with him a few times, and during the course of online conversation, he’d mentioned that he was into photography. During our date, he expanded on his hobby, saying he would love to find a woman who was interested in being photographed. At first, I thought he was taking the conversation in a kinky direction, and I was taken aback, but then I was further concerned when he mentioned wanting a woman who liked to “get dressed up” and have her picture taken. I asked, “Get dressed up in what?” expecting him to say lingerie or something, and he said, “Costumes. Medieval stuff. Ballgowns.” He went on to explain that he was super into LARP; I had no idea what that was, until he said Live Action Role Playing. From that point on, all I could think of was the movie Role Models. But this guy wasn’t just into LARP, he really enjoyed getting dressed up all the time and just taking pictures. I asked “Why?” and he said “So we can look back at them and smile remembering how much fun it was.” Then he told me he had a sewing studio where he sewed all the costumes to be worn during these photo sessions…

I mean, I guess it wasn’t the worst date, but I am so not into LARP and I was kind of weirded out.

The worst date I ever had was with a guy I met online. We had chatted quite a bit before our first date and it seemed promising. As soon as we met, he started saying negative things about EVERYONE. I mean everyone: his family, his colleagues, former classmates, the people walking by…

I had only ever been on one blind date before and I was trying to be polite so I kept engaging him in conversation and trying to make an effort. After a while, I realized that he had only asked me maybe 3 questions about myself the entire date – we had only been talking about him for like 45 minutes.

Finally, I asked him where in the U.S. he wanted to visit that he had never been (he liked to travel and I was struggling with conversation at this point). He said, “Well, definitely not the Midwest. People there are very *simple.*” (He did not mean in a good way, I promise!) Oh, and he knew I was born in the Midwest. I wrapped it up then and never talked to him again.

So the worst date I’ve ever been on was actually my fault – I was “showing off” and got WASTED at the bar we went to before dinner. This guy was a friend of an acquaintance, and we’d hung out in groups before but never alone.

We get to the restaurant, and I order another drink and tell him I don’t want dinner. He insists that I order something to eat, so I get something and another drink. He was trying to signal to the waitress to not bring the next drink, but I caught on and started CRYING, like full-on sobbing  so that people are staring at us. I don’t necessarily remember all of this, but I told him that my dad is amazing and I don’t have any daddy issues so if he was counting on that to get laid he’d have to try harder. He took me back to his house and called my friend to pick me up, because by that time I had cussed him out at the restaurant when he tried to pay for the bill, and passed out on his couch. There wasn’t a second date…I guess I’m not that cute 😉
