Awkward Date Level 1000:
“Friend from class matched with my then girlfriend (now ex). He informed me of the match and proceeded to set up a coffee date. Instead of him showing up to the date, I did. I had the pleasure of watching my girlfriend freak the f**k out.”
When Your Date Doesn’t Do Time Wasting:
“Perfectly nice date, 20 minutes in to it, she says, "I'll be honest. I know what I need in a man, and you don't have it.””
Could This Be the Most Disgusting Thing We Have Ever Heard?:
“My brother actually met his wife on tinder so I thought I'd give it a try. Met this gorgeous guy who had just moved into town, he was head of an ER at a local hospital. Good looking and good job, why is this guy single? I now know. After a very fantastic date he was taking me home. On the way he lets out the worst smelling fart I have ever experienced. I am not a prude girl, a fart, not a big deal. It was what happened immediately afterward what got me. He proceeded to roll up and lock the windows to trap me in the awful smell of his self proclaimed 'protein farts' and started snap chatting my reaction. Needless to say, it didn't work out.”
When Photoshop Gets Too Convincing:
“My profile picture was of me holding my cat. Except I "photoshopped" in a Pikachu instead of the cat. This thing was most obviously a bad shop. I might as well have printed out the original picture. Printed out a pikachu, then taped it over my cat and scanned it. It would have come out looking better.
She insisted that pokemon were real and wanted to know where I got mine. At first it was funny and all, because I thought it was a joke. She went back to it once or twice and I assumed she was as awkward in conversation as I was, so she went back to something relatively safe.
We go on a date and she is pretty excited to go back to my place. i think I'm a stud. We walk in and my cat comes running to the living room so he can then turn his back and make sure I'm aware that he is ignoring me. I scoop him up and pet him and introduce him the the girl. Then she asks where my other pet is. I've mostly forgotten about the Pikachu conversation from the other day. She hasn't.
She was very upset that I wouldn't show her the Pikachu. Then I showed her the original picture, and the terrible photoshop. Then she called me a liar and left.”
“I watched a guy's cat die. On our first date… We were supposed to get dinner, but at the last minute he told me his cat was sick and he had to take him to the vet. He never mentioned having a cat before, which was weird, but I went with it. Anyway, an hour later he texted me that he was out of the vet but he couldn't go out because he had to take care of his cat. But he invited me to come over and order a pizza or something…Anyway, when I got to his apartment I saw this tiny black cat all wrapped up in blankets asleep on this la-z-boy chair and it was actually kind of cute. Every thirty minutes my date had to feed the cat a syringe of this sugar solution and take the cat's temperature…Eventually the guy had to take the cat off of the chair and put him and all of his blankets on the floor... the cat nearly rolled off of the chair at one point and my date had to dive across the floor to catch him. So we left the cat alone in the living room for a little bit, and when we came back thirty minute later, the cat was passed out on the floor about three feet away from all of his blankets. I guess Mr. Cat kept trying to crawl away, but he would get tuckered out and pass out after each step. So I called it a night and went home.”
When Your Date Can't Leave the Office Behind:
“She tried to sell me insurance over dinner. She had a full pitch prepared and even insulted me for choosing my current provider. I split the check and then I split.”
This Match Went 0-100 Real Quick:
“We went on three dates. The next time she asked to see me, I told her I was visiting family and wouldn't be available until the following weekend. In that moment, she freaked out and sent me a 7 page long text about how I destroyed what could have been a perfect relationship and that she wanted to marry me still if I would just put her first. She then left me a voicemail of her singing "U Got It Bad" by Usher while crying and saying she loved me over and over. Two days later she sent me pictures of her burning a bucket list she had made for us.”
Don’t Forget to Recycle:
“The guy was REALLY passionate about compost. Like he talked about compost for a good 3 hours over dinner. And when he wasn't talking about compost he was talking about recycling. And the worst thing is, later in the day he didn't even recycle his water bottle!! If you're gonna lecture me about how important it is to take care of the earth, you better f*****g recycle.”
