What's your worst ever date...?(323 Posts)
I once went on an internet date...we'd been chatting for a week or two online and he seemed normal. But after 5 MINS of meeting, he went to the toilet and returned to say...
- he really liked me had just called his friends to tell them and I could meet them next time
- that he needed to be straight with me that he was having a back operation (didn't sound like a big deal so had no idea why he was even telling me)
And... It later became apparent he didn't have a BA which was listed on his profile. He'd never been to uni, but had in fact been single for a while and thought that that's what the online question had meant when asked if he has a Bachelor of Arts....
There must be better ones out there than this though!
at the BA
I went on a date with an old school friend. He was inrush through the Internet and recognised him straight away. He asked if I wanted to go out and met him near by. He was in the car so I got in.
It was him, but the pictures were very old and he was so much bigger than the picture but have him benefit of the doubt.
Til he pulled up at a kids park! He wanted us to play on the park, it was about 9pm by this time. I just looked at him and said take me home. I have ignored him since.

Hahahaha. How long have you got?
Back when I did online dating, 10 years ago, I met one bloke who had lied about his height. I'm almost 6' in heels. He claimed to be 6'1" - in fact he was barely up to my shoulder. I brought up the apparent disparity after the first drink (I believe in being direct) and he said that he fibbed about his height on the profile because he didn't want people to pre-judge him!
I judged him all right. For lying.
Internet dating seems to create some stories doesn't it
Wonder if men find women doing crazy stuff like this too!!
Why would you lie about your height...!? Surely you could tell they were lying even before walking up to them... Weird..!
I went on a date where the guy pulled out a magic wand and started waving it about. He made some coins disappear and then put it away. Every five mins or so he'd whip it out again and wave it about and put it away. Bizarre.
One told me that I was "really gorgeous, but you wouldn't be attractive if you gained any weight" . Over dinner. What a charmer.
Yes ninah it was like a child's plastic one with the black bit with the white tip.
I love dating storys. You don't think about it at the time but you enjoy retelling them later on
I met one dude online... he seemed alright and normal so met him for a drink.
He was shorter than me (im 5ft1) but I got over that pretty quick.. we went to the pub where he tried to match me drink for drink (he didn't usually drink and I was a big drinker back then) smoked my fags when he didn't smoke and kept going off to the toilet to cry while telling me his life story.
I had to practically carry him to the taxi rank and shove him into a taxi while stopping him laying the lips on me.
I felt a bit shit giving him the fob off the next day but I couldn't do another night like that again!
Was it his own coins he was making disappear with his wand, flowery? Did you check your purse afterwards?
That is deeply odd.
My hairdresser went on an internet date with a bloke who demanded to know why she wasn't wearing the dress she'd worn in her profile picture (the date was in winter, the photo was taken in the summer) and grumbled about her 'not looking the same'. Then he asked her if she was interested in a threesome. She wasn't.
Not me, but my DSis. Waiting for her date outside the pub they were meeting at, she spotted his car and watched as it crashed into another car at the junction. He then got out and started arguing with the occupant of the other car. Bleeding and irate, he introduced himself in between shouting at the other guy. My DSis made her excuses to leave once the police arrived .
Yes, it was the same £2 coin again and again. It was like I hadn't oohed and aahed enough the first time so he kept doing it. Other than that, he held a conversation, we had fun bowling but then just as it got normal again he'd whip the wand out. Odd.
The wand story has made my night!
Also laughed lots at the bloke crying at his own life story before being poured into a taxi by a 5'1" woman. The shame!
Bex, think your sister should have seen the date out. What might have happened next??? He would be spontaneous, at least!
I think the shouting and the near fighting put her off a bit .
Reminds me of the date I had when he told me he'd slept with prostitutes. I'd known him like, five minutes. But he said that it was alright, because he'd made sure that she had had a 'good time'.
"I made her cum loads," he told me, proudly.
Reader, I married him.*
*OF COURSE I FUCKING DIDN'T. I RAN AWAY.
Posh bloke I met at a speed dating event. Wouldn't believe me when I said I liked cricket, because I'm a filly and therefore fundamentally incapable of understanding the rules. I had to list all the ways a
batsman batsperson can be out and do all the umpire's signals before he would accept that I did, but he found this so worthy of note that he took his phone out, then and there, to text his brother with the amazing news that he had met a filly who understood cricket.
Going out for dinner after work only for the man to say he wasn't hungry and proceed to get drunk in front on me (eating my curry as I was hungry) then walking me home whilst trying to get hold of a 'mate for a lift' home.... There was no second date.
Probably the guy I met in the lift of my building. We went for a drink and on the way back he said "I have to go urine" and went and pissed behind a tree. He was genuinely shocked when I refused his offer to go into his apartment to continue the date.
"I have to go urine" is quite formal, isn't it? Although ungrammatical.
The one where the guy drove 100 miles to take me for dinner, then proceeded to get a pencil and paper out when the bill appeared in order to do the long division needed to split it 50/50. He also insisted that I take back the few quid I'd left for a tip because then it "wasn't even then" er, ok...obviously I spent the rest of the night ordering the most expensive drinks I could think of
Got a taxi back to my parents house, where I lived at the time, all the while trying to fight him off on the back seat. I practically threw myself out of the moving car at the door, ran in, and realised 5 minutes later that he was just standing there, out in the street. He stood there for ages then sloped off to sleep in his car! My mum and I were standing in the kitchen peeking through the blinds at him, pissing ourselves laughing
Where on earth did he think he was going to be sleeping after 1 crappy date?!
I went on a date with a guy who started telling me about his operation. Seems he only had one testicle!
Too much information, I declined his offer of a second date.
I've managed to accidentally hide this thread before I even posts so. Won't see any more stories but mines...
The rather nice if extremely boring guy who picked me up for dinner in his works van.
He worked for a fish merchant.
