What's the Worst Date You Ever Had ?Page 3 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
Mid-80s. He was the son/nephew of a friend of a friend of my parents. We'd met once...I think at a wedding. Anyhoo..... I didn't know him well at all, so I drove myself. We sat at the bar, ordered drinks and apps..he had chicken wings. He's the type who "sprays" when he talks. So I ended up with a piece of semi-chewed chicken on the back of my hand. (!) I wiped it off, asked for my check, paid and said my good-byes. He followed me to my car, and had the nerve to try to kiss me by wedging himself in the open door. Ewww. Ugh. 30 years later...STILL the worst date ever.

I used to meet men off here to shoot pool at a local pub. (Beats sitting there interviewing each other.) Evidently one of the servers was not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree because one time she said "You sure like to play pool" in front of the gentleman I was with. I almost told her to shut her fat face.

Yeah, them servers can be pretty dense.

One told me, 'Welcome back Steve! Want the usual?'

In front of my 1st date.

WTF?!

On another occasion, a date's friends sat nearby.

She told her friends, 'This is Steve. We met on PoF!'

I told her friends 'Yeah. And we're going to my place to watch Netflix later!'

She didn't like that one bit....

I feel like on some forum someplace there are women posting about their worst date and that date was with me.

Been lucky, I have had wonderful adventures but let me tell of two bad dates:
Good looking guy, great evening, the ocean amazing, wonderful music, engaging conversation, were enjoying wine and delicious cheese. We've talked for quite awhile before finally meeting... he brings out cocaine... yep, claims his boss who owns a popular jewelry store gave it to him for Christmas Bonus. I said "No thanks and good night."

Another one we were going to swim party/BBQ. When I arrive to the designated event, I was comfortable meeting a whole slew of people. Was having a nice time, But his roommates come over to me and say" You need to get out of here as soon as you can." They were warning me that his house is into foreclosure, (he was taking their rent money and not making the payment) and that he not real. Not wanting to be rude, I went swimming trying to figure a good way to exit. Yes, I was worried offending. Too nice, I have learned. Well he decided to come swimming, he springs on me with Damn Octopus hands. I maneuver away and told him to Knock it off. He tried again till I just about broke his fingers. He froze and said "Ok, who told you?" I am thinking what roommates said but he proceeds to tell me he's a Retired Navy Chaplain and the Navy forced him out." I said" That is it. Don't call me and please don't make up any excuses, your a predator and pathetic at that " I thanked the host for the swim, food but I was leaving.

So I've had Cocaine Jeweler and Octopus Hands Chaplain...LOL

Many years ago a guy that I knew in real life asked me out on a date. I didn't know him well but we had crossed paths a number of times at the university I was studying at (he worked there in an administrative job). We had planned to go out for dinner and then when the time came for him to pick me up he was a no-show. I tried phoning him several times to see what was up and after about the third attempt he picked up the phone. He then proceeded to inform me that he had been depressed lately and had just taken an overdose of prescription meds because he wanted to kill himself. I immediately called an ambulance and went to check in on him later at the hospital to make sure he was okay. Needless to say no romance ensued. I felt very sorry for him and later on he told me how extremely grateful he was that I had been there for him that evening. We stayed in touch a bit as friends and months down the road he told me he had feelings for me and wanted to have a relationship with me. I had no romantic feelings for him whatsoever and had to turn him down. The dinner date that turned into the suicide attempt which resulted in the date being spent at the hospital. Good times.

Yes you were wise to take the action you did as he obviously made a cry for help. But wise not to get involved in a 'victim/rescuer" relationship. Not healthy.

Most "BAD" dates were just women who did not look as advertised, or hardly said 3 words during the date.

There were 2 that really stood out:
1) She asked to meet me at her house - strange, but I generally don't fear people. I show up, a friend of hers answers the door on the way out. My "date" is in a comfy chair at the far end of the house watching TV. I try to start a conversation and all she ever says is YES, NO, or some kind of grunt. She never turns away from the TV. After 20 minutes, I say goodbye and let myself out.

2) My date came to the restaurant early and had 2 or 3 beers at the bar. We order dinner and she orders ANOTHER beer. When our food arrives, she only uses her hands to eat, none of the utensils. When I'm done paying the bill, she wants to order a glass of wine - I say NO - the date is over. In the parking lot she explodes into a rant about how a woman can't get laid any more. I didn't respond, I just drove away.

Ahh. I think when they hardly said three words it may have been because you did not look as advertised.

You would be incorrect. When it comes to descriptions and details, I'm very careful to be precise, and my pics have been current when I was actively dating. I think those women were just very shy - they were generally the type that has in their profile, "Ask me anything" or "I'll fill this out later." When later comes, they still say nothing. Oh, well, I always hope people will show their best side, and their most optimistic side. There are times when this simply didn't happen - they revealed nothing verbally.

Only once did I accuse a woman of telling me lies on the phone. Her descriptions just didn't add up somehow...she would decline any request for a date, but wanted me to keep calling, so I called 'shennanigans' and when we met she was double the size she claimed. ( Yes - it was a no photo profile ). I had dated overweight women before - I knew their size and gave it chance. In this case, I think I wanted to figure out what the purpose or end game was behind the lie. The best I could get was "It's what I do." ...so I didn't learn anything except to trust my instincts.

And if you think I don't look like any photos I've posted in 20+ years, that's fine - Trust Your Instincts. Be it the photos or the comments, something is warning you off, and you should heed the warning. Not everyone gets along - even when their stats line up.

Don't be so quick to say that you're "exactly" as you describe. It's how others see you.

In this on-line world, photos can be a bit confusing. Add to it, that people will "Guild the lily" some. I've recognised a few women in the real world from their profiles. "A few extra pounds" can be interpreted in may ways. A hundred pounds is a few extra. Put that hundred on someone under 5' 6" and it would make you wonder if they could fit through the door. "Curvy" is another. A ball can be described as curvy. But hardly attractive in human form.

I know some have recognised me in real life. By chance, if it's one that has falsely described themselves, and they spot you as a profile they recognise, and you just happen to be shopping, watch them attempt to avoid you. It gets downright funny. A few do a complete 180 in a store, sometimes. Or in a checkout line, they will sneak looks at you, but avoid eye contact at all costs.

Yes, it's an embarrassing situation, because they made it that way.

Did a no no by having an all day 1st date at Universal Studios.

Lots of touching and kissing, and her talking incessantly about herself. On, and On again.

I was exhausted.

Got back to my place around midnight.

I told her I was too tired to have sex but she was more then welcome to share the bed with me or use the couch.

She replied, "I can't believe you just said that" and promptly left...

I once had a date with a very geeky woman. Reminded me of the insurance commercial woman, Flo.

Viagra would not have worked with that woman.

Had one where he said he was a "psychic vampire" with special powers to see into the future..and "when" we had intercourse later that evening, he could transfer them to me. No, I'm not kidding.

I chose to order a drink and roll with the entertainment for the story value and said "wooohoo,!! I'm gonna be a lottery winner tomorrow!

He had NO idea I was being facetious..he later said he could heal his had if he burned it right there with a lighter - and I said "I'd REALLY like to see that". Of course, he then backpeddled. Damn.

You cannot make this stuff up:)
