People Share The Craziest Horror Stories From Their First Date Experiences

First dates are always an exciting time, especially after you’ve met someone online and you’re navigating the intricacies of relationships with them. Most times you will have butterflies, and for the few lucky ones, love will blossom later. 

For these individuals in today's stories, however, they experienced the other side of dates, the horror side. Read as these people share 40+ stories of the most horrific experiences they underwent on their dates. Fair warning, it might make you consider being single for a while. 

1. New Girl, Same Dad

  A little back story: A few years ago I was dating this girl and her father hated me. Which was a bit odd as most parents love me (or at least lie about it well). He was just awful and I always called him out on his crap. Anyway, her parents got divorced, and we broke up a few months later.

Fast forward to around a year later: This girl from a dating site and I were dating for a few months and things were starting to get serious. We were at the point where she wanted me to meet her family - mother, step-father, little sister - and I thought why not? 

I have no problems meeting them, let's do it I said. She told me how excited her stepdad was to meet me as it turns out we both happen to be Kansas City Chiefs fans.

Well, shoot me if it wasn't the same schmuck father of my ex-girlfriend.


2. Conned

  My buddy isn't the smartest man. He picked a chick up and drove to a motel. They were walking into the room and she says, "Oh crap, I forgot my purse in the car. Do you mind if I go grab it?" He says, "Yeah that's fine," and tosses her the keys.  

Five minutes later he walks outside wondering where she is and his car is gone.


3. Creepy Stalker

I started speaking to this guy on a dating site a few months ago. He seemed alright, but not my normal type. Regardless, we started speaking for a couple of days. I didn't realize how stupid I was until now, but I mentioned where I worked.

The night I mentioned my workplace, I saw a guy walk past that looked a lot like him. I hadn't met him in person so I wasn't 100% sure. I forgot about it and a couple of days later, it was quiet at work but my phone battery was low.

I said I'd speak to him later before my phone died. Que him coming in 10 minutes later with a flippin’ iPhone charger. Yes, this might have been a nice gesture if you know, I'd met him face to face before. This was weird because he said he lived on the other side of the city from where I work. 

I wanted to cut ties straight away, but I decided to return the charger after I finished work. He said he would be in a bar around the corner, so when I finished I met up with him, gave him his charger, and made some excuse to go home.

To my horror, I saw on his Instagram that he'd taken a smiling selfie earlier in the day with the caption 'I'm now a taken man. I'd never seen him, not even twice.'

To make it even scarier, for a good few weeks, every time I'd finish work I would see him casually walking past on his own, exactly at the time I finished. This creeped me out for a while.


4. Stood Up

I showed up at the restaurant and waited about 30 minutes. I ordered myself some food and was about to leave when he texted me, "There's a liquor store across the street from the restaurant, can you pick me up 2 six packs?"

I told him I wouldn't. He said he'd decided to play frisbee with his dog instead. I deleted the dating app, went to the liquor store, picked up wine, and went home.

He texted me a month or so after to tell me he'd just bought tickets to see me dance (I'm a retired ballerina, and haven't been in anything for a few years). Then he texted me an hour after and told me how great I was on stage. I never responded.

Dating is too confusing. I'm all done.


5. An Insecure Man

This couldn't have been asked at a better time. I met a guy on a dating site after ending a 6-year relationship. He was in his last year of PT school and seemed to have his life together and was cool. I made it extremely clear that I was in no hurry to rush into a relationship and that I wanted to take my time to get to know him better.

We ended up dating some months later. Everything was great. I was happy with him and was going to take him home for Christmas (we had been together about 6 months at this point). Last Monday, I got a social media message from a random girl. She said she matched with my now boyfriend on the dating site and found his social media account.

She noticed that his social platform noted that he was in a relationship with me, so she messaged me to see if we were in a relationship since she and he had plans for a date that week. She sent me screenshots of all of their conversations. Bless this little dating site angel's heart for messaging me. 

I confronted my boyfriend, went through his phone (which is not like me), and found extremely graphic sexual texts between him and at least TWO other girls besides this girl who had messaged me. He, my boyfriend, says he was so insecure and worried that I didn't want to be with him that he wanted this false security. I broke up with him.

I went for drinks with the girl who messaged me; we're friends now.


6. Sweet Liar

  I started talking to this really sweet guy for about two weeks and things were going well. Then I started getting calls from this girl, who he claimed was his crazy roommate who was in love with him and kept trying to get him fired from jobs.

Turns out, she wasn’t the one lying, she was actually his live-in girlfriend, and they had moved here together from a different state. He wasn’t a citizen and was trying to obtain papers. 


7. Missing His Son

There was this guy, he was a solid 10 in his pictures. He messages me and asks if I want to meet for coffee, so I say yes. He messages me and tells me that I have to pick him up. Okay, whatever, I'll do it.

 I picked him up, and we decided to go eat instead. He's super funny and cute so we hang out some more after dinner. Then he pulls out his phone and proceeds to tell me that he has a son and his baby momma took off to Washington with him (but has no idea where in the state), and he hasn't seen him in months. He tells me to go through a folder on his phone of pictures of his son. Like 300 of them.

He sat there and made me look through every single one, and he would tell me the back story of basically every single video and photo in that folder. I felt so bad, but man I was happy when he left. That whole date just got so weird after that, he did some more stuff but those are good stories for another time, lol. 


8. ‘Psychotic’ Match Ruins Night Out

I (a 24-year-old male) used a dating site once before and met a cool chick, but it didn't work out so I decided to try again. What could go wrong right?

So after a few days of using this dating site again, I stopped launching the app but left my profile active, so I kept getting a few matches. Well, one night my friends and I decided to go bar hopping in a pretty popular area because why not?

We're all pretty smashed at a bar, and I'm wearing the same sweater in my profile picture. Some girl I matched with sent me a few messages (I checked, and it was 10 messages within 2 hours) and I never responded. She recognized me and started yelling at me!

Mind you I didn't have any idea what was going on as I'm drunk as hell. She's going psychotic saying, "WTH The Adventuring Panda!  Why did you never respond to me?!" I responded with, "Who are you?". This drove her nuts and she started yelling combinations of words I'd never heard before. 

She grabbed my drink and threw it in my face, and then security came and threw us both out. She then followed my buddies and me to the car and was yelling and screaming still. While we were driving off she threw her shoe at the car. My buddies were laughing the entire time.

I think I'm just gonna stay inside for the rest of my life.


9. Euro Trip Not Loading

I met up with this guy I had been talking to for a few weeks. He was tall dark and handsome, originally from Turkey, a world traveler, etc. Anyway, we met up for sushi and things were going great. We had much in common and then it was like a PSYCHO switch flipped. 

He started talking about how now that we were going out, I couldn't wear nail polish because he got weirded out holding hands with someone who wore nail polish and how he wanted to have a daughter, but freeze her in time at the age of 4 so that she'd always be a Daddy’s girl and love him forever.

I just stared at him speechless and tried to get through the date expecting, at the very least, a free meal. But no, no free meal. Instead, I paid for a more expensive meal. This guy had the nerve to ask the waitress to split the check when he ordered twice what I had! 

We paid, I stormed out and never talked to him again.


10. Poor Contender

  This was back when this dating site first came out and wasn't quite as well known as a hookup app. We met and had a great first date. The second date was even better.

Things kept going for about 2 months, and then she told me she originally went out with me in an attempt for a prank show type thing where she and all her friends would bring the worst date from a dating site. 

We both liked each other, but I couldn't get over how we started.


11. Irrational Fear

I messaged a cute blonde girl one day, got a response, and after a while of back and forth making each other laugh and getting along, I mentioned I was in a wheelchair. 

Suddenly she was losing her mind talking about our future, how she wants to explore places like Australia, and I wouldn't be able to do that with her because of my wheelchair.

I let her go on for a while to see if she'd ever bring it around to a normal person's thought process but it never happened. She completely lost her mind.


12. Love Before Lockup

  So my brother met a chick on a dating site. Took her on a date, ended up bringing her home for the night, and then that was that. A few weeks later my mother went to the backyard and noticed the door to her camper was open. There was a bunch of clothes and a pair of faux fur boots that belonged to this chick.  

It turns out she had been sneaking into the camper at night and sleeping there, smoking illegal narcotics. My brother had no idea of this. My mom called the cops immediately and it turns out the chick had a warrant out for her arrest. She's still in jail.


13. You Are Not The Father

A friend of mine started hooking up with a girl from a dating site about a year and a half ago. She wasn't beautiful, and he would always talk about how much he hated her but kept seeing her. About two months into this relationship he decided he was going to end things with her and find someone else to date. 

He heads over to her house to break up with her and is instead greeted by the girl telling him that she is pregnant and that it is his. The first thing I tell him to do is to get a DNA test to make sure that it is his kid. He insists that it is, and doesn't get the test. He convinces her to put the baby up for adoption, but she decides pretty late into the pregnancy that she doesn't want to give up the baby and wants to raise it.

Fast forward to a month ago, and my friend is stuck raising this kid with this girl he doesn't like. She didn't put my buddy down as the father on the baby's birth certificate, she’d been collecting money from the government for being a single mother or something, and the government wanted her to try and track down the father. 

That is how my friend found out that he might not be the father of the baby he's been raising. I still haven't heard back on whether he is or is not the father, but I hope for his sake that he isn't. Kids, if you're going to hook up with someone you just met on the internet, use protection.


14. Munchies

Talked to a girl a few times. Set up a date. She calls me a couple of hours before we're going to meet, she gives a crap excuse saying she's busy doing something, and cancels.

At about 11 pm I got a text message from her asking, "Can you come over?" or something similar. Being a mix of lonely and bored, I said what the hell, closed my self-sympathy pizza box, and hopped in my car.

Halfway through the drive, I got another text that asked, "Can you get me some food?" Sure. She wanted a 20-piece Chicken McNugget with extra BBQ sauce. Very specific. Super weird, but fine, munchies.

I show up at her place and she seems drunk, maybe, or something, so I give her the food and she insists I stay, so we watch TV. She's watching a super unsuitable date movie. We make small talk, I have a beer. I don’t push anything because the girl’s got something going on, so I'm ready to bow out.

The movie ends. She stands up and very bluntly says, "I'm going to bed. I don't know if we’re going to hook up or not, but you can stay if you want." She was cute and I was eager, so why not see what happens? I hop in bed while she's in the bathroom. 

She comes into her bedroom and climbs on top of me, her hands on either side of my head. She leans in, I think she's going to start kissing my neck, and then I hear her start snoring. Very loudly. I'm dumbfounded. 

I lie there for a moment thinking about what I should do. This is interrupted by her loudly passing gas. Goodnight.


15. Close Observation

  I don't use dating sites. However, my roommate loves them, and she's brought back numerous visitors. Which is fine, except for the fact that the apartment is tiny and we share a room.

Also, the fact that my roommate doesn't care what I end up seeing. And so, as it turns out, most guys don't care about having another girl in the room either. Some take it as an opportunity for a bigger party.

My roommate is a nightmare.


16. A Hungry Girl

This girl (we'd been chatting for like a week or so,) hit me up around 10 pm on a Sunday and said she'd be in my neck of the woods on her way home and wanted to see if I wanted to hang out. I did. 

So she comes over, and she's got a bag of Mexican food with her. So I put on an episode to watch, and she busts out a monster bean and cheese burrito and a carne asada quesadilla. She asked if I wanted any, but I had already eaten.

So this very slim girl puts down BOTH of these foods in like 10 minutes, ‘destroying’ almost 2 pounds of food. She wipes her face off, grabs my hand, gets up, and goes, "Welp, I gotta go. You can tell your friends you at least got something out of it."

Never to be seen again. I'm still in love with her.


17. Short Fuse

I had been on a couple of dates with this girl that I met on a dating site and learned that she was really into the rockabilly scene. I found out that a local nightclub was hosting a rockabilly-themed night and so I took her there. She had dressed to the nines and we were having a great time in the club. 

Suddenly this guy accidentally tipped a drink on her 50's style dress. The guy apologized profusely. She storms over to grab her coat and bag and on the way out she just punches the guy in the face. Everyone in the club was shocked. 

I took her outside and told her she couldn't react like that and that's when she took her heel off and hit me square in the face for "siding with the guy." There was blood everywhere. I never answered her calls after that.


18. Chauvinist

En route to the worst date ever, this guy texted me from the burrito place we were meeting, to tell me he’d already ordered me the salad. I repeat, SALAD, at a burrito place. Had we gone back in time? Was I now incapable of placing my food order? 

Anyway, after arriving – my salad ready, beside his plate of tacos – he spent the next half an hour telling me about his model ex-girlfriend and how passionate their breakup had been that past weekend.

The final straw was – even after telling him I wasn’t a big fan of smoking – he asked a stranger for cigarettes and then chain-smoked them beside me.


19. When Music Fills the Air

I had been talking to this girl from a dating site for a while and we decided to hook up. The problem was I had asked my roommate if I could have the room later. So when I went to sign this girl in (we have a proctor in the lobby at my university’s dorms), my roommate and several other friends of mine placed a Bluetooth speaker in my room and hid in the hallway, waiting for me to get back.

I didn't see them and things started to get hot and heavy when ‘Let's Get It On’ started playing from somewhere in the room. I started searching and after 5 minutes I found the Bluetooth speaker under my roommate’s bed, next to his dresser. I found the power button but not before the wonderful sound of hardcore pornography filled the room. 

The two of us decided to call it a night so we threw our clothes back on and she had to walk past all six jerks as I led her out of the dorm. I never saw her again.


20. Stood Up or Nervous Catfish?

So, I met this guy on a dating app and he was just incredible. He was clever, good-looking, funny, you get the type. The only catch was that he didn’t live in my city. 

After a couple of weeks of messaging and phone calls, we decided to meet up and we settled on me going to him, because I'd never been to his city and that seemed like a fun little adventure. Right? WRONG.

The big day comes and I embark on the 2.5-hour train journey. I get all excited and I can't wait to get off the train - only to find out that he is not on the platform waiting for me when my train arrives. I get off the train and try to call him to no avail. 

After four hours of waiting, I decided to take the next train back home. I haven't heard from him since.


21. Wrong Side

I don't have a horror story, since I've only gotten about one good date from these dating sites which went alright. I've been rejected plenty, the highlight of which was this girl, who seemed pretty interesting and reasonably attractive, so I swiped right and we matched. Hooray. 

I proceed to send her a message, something clever, along the lines of, "Hey, a match! Did we just become best friends?!" Though I can't take credit for that one, I stole it from online step-brothers.

She responded rather promptly, so I was eager to read what she'd sent, as, for the most part, women tend to ignore me. Anyway, I opened it up and all it said was, "I swiped the wrong way."


22. Just A Number

I matched with a girl, and she was quite pretty. Her pictures were mostly of just her face and upper body, but I didn't pay that any mind. 

She initiated the conversation, and she was immediately into hooking up, so of course I invited her over. She arrived, I answered the door, and she turned out to be about 6'5". I am 5'8" on a good day.

I let out an audible, "Holy Crap," and she picked me up and carried me to the bedroom like a baby. No regrets.


23. Non-Consensual

So I went on three dates with this dude and we hooked up the last time at his house. Things ended with the typical fade away, and I was fine with it. We weren't very compatible and I noticed a few minor red flags.

6-months later he started emailing me, obviously looking for a reenactment of our summer fling. When I turned down his advances, he sent me a screenshot of myself, in his bedroom, while we were hooking up, over half a year ago.

So this douchebag filmed me without my consent. I reported it to the police and now, almost a year after I filed the report, I have to testify against the creep. I have no legal representation except the state's ‘victim advocate’, who only seems to have experience with domestic violence cases.

I haven’t found a way to report him on the dating site (I deleted my account a long time ago). My biggest concern is that he's still out there being a creep to other ladies on this and other dating sites.


24. No Under 21

A year ago I met a guy online. We had similar interests, and he looked great in his pictures. We decided to meet up on a Sunday for lunch. I was quite hungover from a friend's Christmas party and I threw up upon arrival to the date.

 He didn't seem to mind. He didn't order a drink and I couldn't order one due to the hangover. Once the hangover subsided, I suggested we walk around and head into a bar. 

He didn’t like the first bar, he had a ‘bad experience’ at the second bar, and kept on passing on them, until we finally got to his favorite bar. He ordered drinks, and after a few, I suggested heading to a wine bar.

He passed on the wine bar and confessed that he was only 20. And while his profile said he worked at a local college, it was a work-study position, because he was a junior there. Maybe it was the hangover, maybe it was the exhaustion, but I still brought him home. 

Things occurred, and I found out it was his first time. He ran away in tears and threw up on my apartment stairs. We tried going out again once he’d turned 21, and it was almost the same situation. 

Never again.


25. Encounters of the Weird Kind

We talked for a couple of hours, drank some wine, watched a movie, and hooked up. Things went a little downhill after. We lay in bed and suddenly it looked like she was about to black out so I helped her sit upright and asked if I could help her - get her some water and stuff. But she didn't speak a word. 

She just sat there with her hands in her hair for a couple of minutes and then puked all over my sheets. At this point, I wanted to get her to the shower ASAP but she was just stunned or something. I didn't know what to do. After a couple of minutes, I finally convinced her to get up and took her to the shower so she could clean herself while I removed the soiled sheets and all that.

Every five minutes I checked on her to see if she was okay, but I’d find her still sitting on the floor with the shower running unable to speak. It was all very awkward. After 20 minutes or so I brought her a towel and some clothes and we sat on the edge of my bed where she told me that she was born without a womb. 

She cried, and I tried to calm her down until she finally fell asleep. The next day I made breakfast and she went home. Weirdest ‘date’ I ever had.


26. Bigger Than Life

I matched with this pretty and cute-looking girl. She didn't look like she was in super great shape but she didn't look obese either. So we exchanged numbers and I called her. 

She agreed to come over to my house and I waited outside while she found her way over. She pulled up in a super awesome car so I'm like, hell yeah.

When she got out, it looked like her suspension let out a sigh of relief. She was at least 300 pounds in weight. Nice girl though, and she gave me a back massage. Afterward, I told her I was tired and she left.


27. Close Ties

  I went out with a girl, and we had a great time together. But I only knew her first name. We were texting later that night after our date and I asked her to add me on social media after giving her my username. 

She added me and up popped a request from a very familiar username. Her last name is my mom's VERY RARE maiden name. She was my second cousin.

We clarified things briefly and never spoke again.


28. Too Long a Distance

I matched with a guy who turned out to be in my city for work, but just for the weekend. We got along great and hung out both nights he was in town. We kept texting after he left, and he mentioned that he wanted me to visit him. I'm like, "Hold up, slow your roll," but then decide hey, the worst that can happen is a bad weekend. 

Later on, he visits, and a long-distance relationship ensues. Seven months down the line I move to his city. The months pass and I realize he is as selfish as can be and though I love him very much, he is not the guy for me.

We break up, then get back together. More months go by. Same crap. I then decided to break things off forever and move back home. 

Now I'm stuck back in my city, miserable and alone. That's a pretty horrifying story if you ask me.


29. Looking For Love In The Wrong Places

My friend, bless her heart, she's got so many dating app stories. Once, a guy wanted to bring his mom on his first date. Another bragged about stealing money from his kid sister's piggy bank, and yet my friend still had to pay for his dinner.  

Another was a guy on house arrest (there's clue #1 right there) who, after a few times hanging out, turned into a total monster and would not stop harassing her and verbally abusing her. She ended up blocking him. I love her, but I worry about her sometimes. 


30. Overly Sensitive

On the first date, she told me I’d already ruined the night because I chose to sit on the bar side of the restaurant. On the second date, she got us kicked out of my favorite restaurant when she yelled at two guys wearing sports team jerseys. 

Two weeks went by before she called crying because I didn't call her on my birthday. I agreed to a post-birthday lunch date where I told her I was not interested in continuing to see her and she ran to the bathroom crying.

I took a bite of her sandwich, paid for the lunch, and walked home. This is one out of three awful dating app experiences, and I'm not sure I'm ready to try again.


31. Listen To Your Body

My dating site story is not as horrifying as some of the others, but some of you may get a laugh out of it. In January 2013 I started using this dating app for the first time. I matched with a girl I knew who was in the year above me at the high school I went to. She invited me over on Saturday night as she had the house to herself. 

As the weekend rolled by I began feeling unwell on Thursday, but I was going through a bit of a dry spell at the time so I just thought "suck it up and toughen up". Saturday night I was at her place. We went out for dinner, but I didn't eat much (I said I wasn't hungry). We returned to her house after the meal.

At this point, I was sweating bullets and had the worst stomach cramps. I asked where the toilet was and made a dash to it. I began vomiting and came out of the toilet whiter than a ghost. She freaked out while I continued to shake uncontrollably for some unknown reason. 

She called an ambulance thinking I had food poisoning, but it turned out I had appendicitis and my appendix had ruptured. I spent the next 10 days in hospital.


32. Commitment Phobia

I met this girl on a dating app where she messaged me first, which was refreshing. We conversed over text for a few days before agreeing to meet. We went on a date and everything was crazy good. I felt more chemistry with this girl than I have felt with anyone else ever.

A few dates later she tells me she feels the same way. We finally hooked up and it was more than either of us could have asked for. A month and a half of going on dates later and it gets to a point for both of us where the ambiguity is becoming a problem. I ‘officially’ asked her out, but she declined and disappeared from my life without really filling me in as to why although I have a pretty good idea it may have been about commitment issues and being afraid of a relationship.

Whatever, I'm crushed, but that's pretty normal. We're in our early 20s and crap like this happens. The horror part? The chemistry was so crazy for me that meeting her essentially ruined my want to see other people months later. 

Everyone just seems so uninteresting, but at the same time, I hate being alone. I honestly have no idea how to get out of this rut, and it's more emotionally horrifying than anything else I've been through.


33. New to the Game

So I'm chatting up this girl and she seems pretty awesome. Since this was before Netflix and Chill, I asked her if she wanted to come over and watch a trending movie with me. Things went pretty well, except towards the end of the movie we started getting frisky. 

Right when things were about to come to completion she told me she'd never been with anyone. I stopped all activity because her confession made me nervous.

I told her she could stay the night because it was already four in the morning, and I had to be up at 8 am to go to work. So I got up and took a shower, and when I returned to the room she got confrontational. 

She asked me if I had a girlfriend. I did not, otherwise, I wouldn't have been on the dating app. She said she looked through my phone and found conversations with other dating app matches.

I freaked the hell out. I drove her back to her dorm and completely blocked her on every social media I could think of.


34. Virtual Connections

I spent weeks on a dating app swiping, matching, and talking with potential dates, whilst thinking of witty things to say to impress pretty faces. Finally, one match took interest, and I had a date!

We were making each other laugh through texts and it seemed so natural! When I showed up to meet her, she was completely different in person than what I expected. She didn't smile, she didn't crack jokes, she was just extremely boring.

And that's when it hit me, that I didn't even like this girl. I liked the IDEA of who I THOUGHT she MIGHT HAVE BEEN from the keyboard conversations.

I ended it quickly, deleted the app, and gave up on online dating. Dating apps are supposed to save you effort, but in the long run, it's way more effort and the reward is less than engaging.


35. Doppelganger

It was our second date and I was pretty much into her. The first date had been really good so I was expecting a great night on the second date.

She suggested we go to a favorite bar of hers, have a few drinks, and chill out. When we got there, we discovered several of her friends sitting around in a group. 

She introduced me and sheepishly mentioned we met on a dating app. This gained me a few weird looks. One guy (who happened to look quite like me), reacts a little more than the rest. My date went off to get drinks, leaving me to the group's collective and judging stare.

The guy who looks like me asked, "What was your name again"? After I said it, the group turned to mutter to each other. He smiled wryly and asked, "What about your full name?" When I told him, the group erupted in laughter.

It turned out the guy who looked like me was her ex, who also happened to have the same first and last name as me. This made for some incredibly awkward conversations.


36. Below Average

I met a guy who was shorter than me, which is hard to do since I am only 5 feet tall. He seemed like a nice (if somewhat grandpa-like) guy. We went to sushi and he had some quirks which I didn't notice at the time. 

After the meal, we went back to my place to drink a little with my friends. It was at this point that I began to notice his odd habit of looking me directly in the eyes, fluttering his lashes, and saying, "Hmm," like he was purring or something.

Then he tried to get me to walk into a completely dark forest area (I go to UC Santa Cruz) and I was sober enough to realize that was not a good idea. I tried to get us to walk back. He then hugged me and said, "It’s so nice to feel your touch."

I promptly and quickly left that situation ending all communication. 


37. Pearly Whites Not Included

This was my first experience with online dating. We met up after messaging back and forth. I picked him up to go to a park. After he got into my car, he turned to me and said, "So you've probably noticed I have no teeth..." Uh, yeah. 

I was nice about it and asked deadpan and innocuous questions. But hell, after that experience I learned to check for an open-mouth smile on profile pictures and to meet BEFORE agreeing to a date.

After an hour, he suggested going to eat Mexican food (which I had mentioned in a message was my fav), and without thinking I blurted out, "But, how do you eat chips and salsa?!"

Guys, take pictures showing you have teeth and preferably post a profile picture without a hat on.


38. Someone's Girl

I went on a date with this girl; she drove to my house and I drove her to the date. She was a bit bigger than she let on in her pictures, but that's pretty much expected. We went to a drive-in movie, which was alright. She was pretty boring overall, and I didn't plan on seeing her again. 

I drove to my house after the movie, dropped off, and she drove back to her home. The following night I was watching TV with my roommate. Someone called my phone from a blocked number and asked, "What-chu doing with my girl?" I had no idea what he was talking about, so I just kept saying, "I don't know what you're talking about."

He then said, "Why have you been texting her? What are you calling her about? You better not be messing with her." When I heard the name, it clicked. I guessed this was her jealous boyfriend. He said, "I have your address, and I'm going to come and set you right."

Well, that night I slept with my gun very close by. He never came by, and I never heard from either of them again.


39. How It Started

My first dating app experience was interesting. We went for a curry at a Japanese restaurant, went for a walk in the park, and I bought some macarons. It went well enough to warrant a date to the fair, and that went well enough to get her to come over to my place.

So, we decided the best thing on one of these dates was to play guitar, make homemade egg rolls, and watch Napoleon Dynamite. The egg rolls went over well, and we got the movie going. We eat up, I set away the dishes and I take my seat next to her, trying to get closer and closer.

Eventually, we're next to each other and I slowly start leaning onto her shoulder, which she pointed out. I scoot away taking it that she didn't want to be so close, to which she says, "Yeah that's right, just go all the way over there away from me." 

Jokingly, I agreed and decided to grab the covers that were on the bed behind us, to cover her. Unfortunately, I forgot I’d placed the guitar we had been playing on the bed, and at that point, it fell with the covers and hit her on the head.

We've been a couple for 3 months now.


40. It Worked For Us

I met this girl on a dating site. She was hot and funny and was into the same sort of things as me. A couple of weeks of chatting went by and we arranged to meet. I said I'd meet her Saturday at this nice place close to hers and waited till the weekend.

Saturday rolls in and I go to meet her. I arrived about half an hour early, half excited, half dreading the encounter. So after I've had a half pint of lager she turns up. My God is she gorgeous. So I offer to buy her a drink, pop to the toilet while I'm at it, return to her drink in hand and we get talking.

We talk for hours about random crap, hit it off big time, and generally get to know each other. The night ends and I go home with a big grin.

12 months go by in the blink of an eye and on our 1st anniversary we are reminiscing about our first date and she tells me about the dark wet patch on my jeans she noticed when she first met me from where I didn't quite shake properly.

Still together :)


41. Meet The Parents

I have been on three dates from dating apps, with three separate girls, and they have all been the same horror story.

For some reason, the God of dating apps has decided for me that whenever I'm on a date with a girl from a dating app, we will run into her parents at some point during the date. 3/3 times this happened. 3/3 times it was awkward for everyone involved.


42. Childfree

I once met with a lass after a few days of speaking on a dating app. She was a lovely girl, probably a 7/10 for looks, but all-around a win in my eyes.

Anyway, after a couple of drinks at her local pub, she laid it on me: she wasn't looking for a relationship at all. She wanted me purely as a sperm donor. I made my excuses, left the bar and never spoke to her again. (I'm not against children, but it's not the situation for me.)

Anyway, a few months pass and I see her, about halfway through a pregnancy at my estimate. I guess she finally found her donor.


43. Gross Encounters of the Worst Kind

I went on a date with a guy, and it was pretty decent. He was an engineer and pretty nerdy. He asked me on a second date, where he said he was going to make dinner for me. 

He makes jerk chicken, which is so spicy that it is inedible. I could not eat even one bite of this food. I guess the guy was nervous or something because he wolfs down 3 huge plates of this jerk chicken in under 5 minutes. I have never seen anything like it. He didn't even talk to me, he just shoved food into his face. 

Then about 10 minutes later, he has to go to the bathroom. He is in there for about 20 minutes. He comes back out and I can see that he is super sick. He is sweating, his eyes are watering, and he reeks of crap. He makes it for about 5 more minutes before he has to go back to the bathroom.

He went to the bathroom 7 times while I was there. The WORST part of this though was for the 2 hours I was there (most of which he spent in the bathroom) he made me watch Georgia Tech football. I hate football and I tried to change the channel, but when he would come back out of the bathroom, he would put it back on ‘the game". 

After this, he texted me for about a month periodically to ask what I was wearing to bed. Even though I didn't answer he would just keep texting. I finally had to tell him explicitly to buzz off.


44. Not the Same Anymore

  Not my personal story but my boss had one last week. First of all, his profile pic is 12 years old from back when he used to work out. He had season tickets for the Blackhawks and they were going to meet up at a cafe before.  

He arrived early and the way he told it, I couldn't help but laugh - in my head of course.  She pulled up, he went to meet her, she took one look at him, and immediately backed out and drove off, leaving him standing there.
