People are different and so are things they look for on a dating app – or life in general. As we promised to share all kind of stories, here we’ve gathered the most awkward first date stories we received.
First date is all about hidden promises and undiscovered opportunities. But there are a lot of things which can go wrong and here we picked the most surprising ones.
She had been to my apartment before, but it’s not what you think
Went on a date with a really cute girl, and step by step we decided to continue the party at my place. I have a nice apartment, which my parents got for me and my brother when we went to university.
When we came home my date started to act really weird and found some obvious excuse to leave. She did not reply me for several days, till I got this really angry message, saying that I was such a dog and did not deserve to go out with a nice girl like her.
After messaging back and forth I finally realised what had happened – apparently my brother had picked this girl up at the bar when she was totally wasted, and when she came to our apartment again (with me), she thought it was me and I didn’t remember her. It made her really angry – the fact she didn’t remember me did not bother her at all.
His exes joined our date
He took me out to a bar where he’s a regular. Which might be fine, as probably he wanted to feel comfortable, but… There were 2 of his exes that night and we ended up all at the same table.
They asked me a lot of intimate questions, while he just smiled and did not seem bothered at all. The weirdest first date I’ve ever had.
She looked nothing like her pictures. Because it wasn’t her
I talked to a girl on Mint for a couple of weeks and really wanted to take her out, but she seemed super busy all the time, which just made me more curious. When we finally met, she looked nothing like her pictures – that’s to say, different hair colour, face, everything.
When I asked her about it, she was really elusive at first. Later it became apparent, that she had no memory of our previous conversations. I started to doubt if it’s the same girl at all, till she came clean – her friend I’d been talking to before had booked two dates for the night, so had convinced this girl to stand in for her.
I would have been really disappointed, but after this revelation I discovered that the girl I’m on the date with is really fun. And we’ve even went out for some time.
The beast almost killed me
I’m using online apps to hook-up, and I have a really direct approach.
Basically, I’ve chatted with this one chick, she was completely on board and I went to meet her at her place. All started nice and smooth, we were drinking wine and kissing, but suddenly I started to feel tears welling up in my eyes – okay, that’s a strange reaction, but let’s say it’s wine… Ten minutes later, oh, c’mon, my throat started to close and I realized I’m in a big trouble.
I managed to ask her if she had a cat, and she smiled – oh, yes, I have two. I did not have my allergy medicine with me, so it was a long and tough walk to pharmacy. Im booking a hotel next time for sure.
He ruined my best shoes
I don’t mind having a drink or few, so it did not bother me when the guy I went on a date with ordered a bottle of house wine. It did started to nag me a bit when I had a glass of it while he finished the rest and ordered the second one – but who am I to judge.
It all rolled down the hill from there – he got really really drunk very fast and started to hit on a waitress. I ordered the Uber and was about to leave, when he insisted he will walk me out at least, to make sure I made it to the car.
We just stepped outside the bar, when he got really sick… on my most expensive shoes. I’d spent my Christmas bonus on those shoes, for fuck sake.
Girl in a wheelchair trashed me in front of everyone
I had a short conversation with a girl, who told me she has never been on a real date in a nice restaurant. Although I was not really interested in her, I said I’d be more than happy to take her out for a dinner – people have to eat, right.
I was waiting for her on the street, and felt someone looking up at me – so there she was, in a wheelchair. I would have gone out with her if I’ve known too, but I dont think its very nice from her to omit it – and, no, I don’t think it makes me a bad guy.
But we went on with the date and had an amazing dinner in a nice restaurant. After two glasses of wine she started to hint about taking this date someplace else, and I told her I’m not interested. She got really pissed at me and loudly accused me of being an asshole and ditching her only because she’s disabled. And people around us started to join in, calling me names… I’ve never been more embarrassed in my life.
Date with a married guy turned out not what expected
I’m in an open relationship myself, and when a married guy asked me out, it seemed like a rather good fit. Till the moment, when we figured out I’m working with his wife… We literally share the same office space. Talk about awkward.
We had a good laugh and quickly agreed, that this is a bit too close to continue.
Make some space in your closet, will you?
I was chatting with a gorgeous girl from my hometown, who had left to study abroad. She seemed really amazing.
So imagine my excitement, when she told me she’s coming home for a week. And so she did – apparently not to her family, but to me… She moved in without asking, rearranged my stuff as she wanted and felt like home, to the point that she invited her mom over for a dinner.
In a week, when she had to leave, we had the most emotional and difficult breakup ever. And I’m still not inviting girls over for the first date.
