First dates are stressful. Even if they go well, meeting a new person is inherently going to be difficult at first. And while we all inevitably have a rotten date or two under our belts, some dates take it from bad to horrific. We've rounded up the craziest stories from various threads that will make you want to thank your lucky stars your last date was just a bad kisser. Until two days ago when I saw her in the pub where we had a brief catch-up and I got her number. We meet up and it was going great. Both enjoying ourselves conversation is flowing and she seemed into me.
He goes out there and sits for a few minutes. He tried to go in for the kiss, but I was literally saved by the dog. I rush inside and lock the door and tell my now-panicked parents the story.
After talking for a few days over IM and email, I offered to take her out to a movie.
We hang out and chat for awhile before, nothing odd. About halfway through the movie, my phone starts going off vibrateI check the number, don't recognize it. So I ignore it. It doesn't stop going off for 10 solid minutes. So I excuse myself to take the call, thinking it must be important. I go back and get her from the theater. I hand her the phone and she gets really quiet and takes a few steps away just looking at the floor and saying "mhmm, mhmm.
I'm actually pretty amused by the whole thing, say goodbye, and finish the movie. She explains that it was her ex-boyfriend from a few states away, and that he didn't take the break up and move well. And I guess he went through all her emails, got my number, and found out we were seeing a movie together. He told them I had a gun. Either he didn't call the one we were at, or they didn't take him seriously. I replied to her saying that I don't know if we can go out again, if this guy is going to do stuff like this.
I mean, she needs to either make him back off, or call the cops. I get a reply email, not from her, but from him.

You have to pick out which dating site to use when the list seems susanneill.com: Elise Torres. 12 real-life first date horror stories - from one date who pooped their pants to another who was openly sexist. 1. He leaned in for a kiss and pooped his pants. Pooping your pants on a first date is a pretty fearless move. 2. He (probably) had filthy hands. 3. He didn't know when to leave. 4. He Author: Sara Hendricks.
He was intercepting her email. So I called her, told her she needs to get this guy out of her life if she wants to date people. She didn't think it was that bad, so I told her that I wasn't comfortable going out again. No biggie, she was still cute and I hope I am not that shallow. Still, I decided, people have dealt with much worse. But then it got absolutely fantastic - a friend of hers shows up, and these two are pointing, laughing, and screaming their heads off and calling random characters 'gay' and whatnot.
After we smooched, I looked at her and said, 'I love you. I was 15 at the time. I still look back on it and think to myself yahtz33 what the hell were you thinking?! The manager and staff knew me, and they knew it was a blind date. Want me to go get it for you? The waitress apologized profusely, saying that he told her if she didn't play along, she'd get fired. I hadn't seen him in a while, we met at a friend's party, but we had been texting for a few weeks and he seemed awesome.
We get to the restaurant too late and its closed, so he complains about that. His friend calls him while we're looking for a new place, he answers and complains about how this date is so bad. We ended up eating at IHOP, all the while he's still complaining about how terrible that date is.
At the end of the night he drops me off and tells me he had a great time even though it was a terrible date and he would like to see me again. Didn't happen. Maybe if he hadn't whined the whole time I could have had fun too. I was with my girlfriend at the time, she brought a friend, Sarah, and I brought my friend Darren.
Sarah was super into Darren. Darren was super not into Sarah. Darren looked at her, patted her on the head, and said 'Okay goodnight. It had been going great up until dinner, when she stumbled over a curb. I went to catch her, and promptly whacked her in the face with my head. This actually broke her nose, which lead to me panicking and trying to fix it. Of course that was a bad idea, and I think I made her nose bleed more to be honest.
He was a former marine who served in Vietnam and did the usual 'scare the bejesus out of the daughter's date' by coming out sharpening his kabar knife when I picked her up, needless to say he really didn't like or trust me after that.
So I guess it worked out OK in the end. Felt great. I thought I was talking to my friend with the same name as my date. It was my date and not my friend.
We had been talking for about weeks before we decided to meet up. Agreed that we would take my motorcycle out for a ride. We got off the bike, sat at a picnic table, and just talked for about an hour.
We get up to leave, and I realize I left the lights on I'm like 'S, this battery is going to be toast Six months after the divorce I'm on my first date with a girl named Heidi. She wanted to stop by a local tavern that was hosting a charity benefit. We did Walk in the front door and immediately I am face to face with the guy who screwed my wife.
He attempted to say something to me and I immediately cut him off and threatened him rather harshly. He left. She said I should have punched him. Then went to a party at a mutual friend's house where I got black-out drunk and passed out and I was supposed to be the DD. We had a lot in common including our hobbies and politics and stuff like that, so I was thinking we might hit it off. Now bear in mind that I'm not super attractive so up to this point she hasn't seen any pictures of me, instead we have pre-arranged recognition signals.
2. He (probably) had filthy hands.
She walks in the door and I spot her by her clothing instantly, and start waving. She gets this sort of uncertain look on her face and walks over and says 'Sam? Small talk fails and for 45 minutes she complains about how no one is refilling her wine glass she kills the glass every 20 seconds. I try to be civil and change the subject. Awkward conversational topics ensue, nothing even close to first date etiquette follows.
Three quarters of the way through I go to the bathroom and our waiter walks by, asks me if we are doing a reality show or something along those lines, since he has seen this disaster in motion. The date looked shocked and ended up not being able to pay her bill, so the friend who hooked us up got a call and flipped the rest of her check. I had previously made a 'bet' with her wherein if she won, I'd make her dinner and bake pie, but if I won she had to make out with me - either way, win-win, right?
Midway through the flick, she says, 'I'm still a bit hungry - I think I'll go grab a quick bite of the leftovers. I decide about 45 seconds later, as my stomach rumbles, that this sounds like a great idea. I was shocked - I'd never had a date try to rob me before.
I asked, 'What the hell are you doing? At that point, I reached over to the counter and grabbed a slice of the pie. I looked her in the eyes and said, 'Don't forget your desert. She so happen to be a friend of my best friend's current girlfriend, so we decided to make it a double date.
During the movie everything was going as planned, I sat by her while my friend sat with his girlfriend. Then we see a couple of her b girlfriends walk into the theater, and who happen to see the girl I was with right away. When her friends got to where we were sitting, the girl I asked out turns to me and asked, 'Can you scoot down a seat so I can sit next to my friends?
And to add insult to injury, she stayed there, and her friends ate the popcorn I bought. We went and saw a movie, then went out for dinner. I was nervous and awkward, and it ended without much fanfare.
The date went OK, and there wasn't a second one, but that's not the bad part. And I saw her there, and was afraid it might be a little awkward. I had no idea. About an hour into the party, she came up and started talking to the mutual friend, while I was standing nearby.
After a few minutes of talking, the girl I had gone on a less-than-awesome date with came up and introduced herself to me. She ordered the twin lobster tails dinner and proceeded to tell him 'My boyfriend will love this' while boxing up the 1. They didn't go out again, needless to say. I thought it was kind of odd that he was suddenly interested in me, but I agreed to go. When we came back, my windshield was smashed and two of my tires were flat. His response: 'Yeah sorry. I just got out of a bad relationship.
I took her out that night to a nice restaurant. We had a few drinks at the restaurant. She said she wasn't feeling well.

Apparently she was on some medicine that made alcohol twice as powerful and she was a total lightweight. I offered to take her home, and she ended up puking in my brand new car. Being young and poor we went to an Applebee's where my date ordered off the kid's menu getting herself chicken fingers.
Dating horror stories 2018
Embarrassed by this, I did what I could to steer the conversation away and try to have a pleasant evening. Noticing the look on my face my date got upset and in an annoyed tone said, 'I just learned how to do this last week OK! We had plans to get dinner and see a movie, typical I know, but it was early so we were having some coffee and talking, getting to know one another, and I notice a woman in the corner who has fallen asleep in one of the big comfy chairs.
We saw a small raccoon. He screams like a prepubescent boy and it hisses at him as it calmly walks away from him. I comfort him, giggle, and call him silly-buns and in the middle of my explanation about city animals and how to deal with them, he turns around suddenly and yells, 'You hurt my pride and you're using words I don't understand to explain something I don't f care about.
I'm gone. During dinner, I notice a scar on her arm. I ask about it. By now, completely forgot about the got-hit-by-a-car story. Crosswalk light is about to turn red. I say 'We can make it' and we start rushing across the street. We almost get hit by a car. At the end of the night, I walk her outside and to her car in the driveway and we're just standing there.
She says she had a good time and she'll come to have a drink with me on the weekend blah blah blah, that old song and dance. Yes, poked her, with my finger Then she said, 'OK I'm really not a fan of astrology, but I don't really care if someone likes it. Anyway, this girl said she was good at guessing signs. I must admit, I was impressed when she got it right in only 10 guesses. Read the original article on Business Insider UK. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.

Single People React To Dating Horror Stories
It was like pulling teeth to talk with him. I try to talk about travel - 'I don't see why anyone would ever want to leave the US. So I tell him about how my brother just purchased an Aston Martin.
I really only like Camaros. Then, to top in off, he starts talking about No Fap He said it gave him sizeable loads without affecting his mood. I jokingly ask if he masturbated today. He says yes.

I ask if he washed his hands. He hesitates. I smile and say bye, leaving his hand hanging out there. By the time I get home, he has deleted me from Tinder. I had to wake this kid up at noon and be like OK, I have to get ready for work, you need to leave.
So he started to get dressed and couldn't find one sock. He searched through all my drawers and dumped out my dirty clothes hamper looking for it. I ended up finding it weeks later in my sock drawer. I kind of think he planted it there, but I'm not sure why. Looking back now I would've told him tough s, got him an Uber and went to work.
But I took him to the car tow place so he could get it back. And of course he doesn't have his wallet. So I had to pay for it, and sign for it because he doesn't have an ID on him. So he finally gets his car, I'm already like 30 minutes late to work, and he goes, 'Okay I'll call you later' and I just said 'Never talk to me again.
He texted a few hours later and said he lost the stylus for his phone. I blocked his number. Second date, he drove and then drank a LOT, seemingly on purpose so he wouldn't be able to drive home. I agreed, and he spent the whole night crying in my bed about how I was going to leave him.
I broke it off, he then looked up a performance I was in later that year in college and showed up. He drove 35 minutes, and sat through a minute play, for that. Place was filled with empty beer cans. The sink was coated in hair and toothpaste. I was so disturbed.
Then he told me he had a suspended license and a kid he never met, and I high-tailed it home. He comments on me ordering pizza in an Italian restaurant. I don't often eat meat, only veggie thing was pizza. He comments on me eating pizza with knife and fork. I politely ask about his work.
He explains what he does as if he's talking to a 4 year old, even though he knows I'm doing two master degrees and did Biology at my finals. Throughout the date [he] kept explaining stuff to me as if I'm in kindergarten. Doesn't ask anything about me but long monologues about himself. I decline getting another drink and leave.
