I had met this man online and we met up for dinner. Everything was going fine so we decided to go back to his hotel (he was from out of town). We decided to go swimming. Somehow the drain got turned on when we got in and my top ripped off. One of the hotel’s staff showed up right then when I was half naked climbing out of the pool. My date’s response? He asked if the employee would have sex with someone like me. My response was to shove him into the pool and leave.

My best friend set me up with an acquaintance from work. She explained him to me and i said he sounds pretty good, so sure I’ll go on a date with him if he’s willing. Two days later, I get a phone call from the guy. He tells me it would be nice to go on a date with me so we made plans to go out the Saturday night coming up. Saturday comes a long, he picks me up and we go to a restaurant in New York City. We started talking and everything was going good.. until he asks me about my ex. So I tell him why we broke up etc. He then proceeds to tell me that he was a jerk and was stupid to let me go. I was thinking “man this guy is really nice”. Suddenly, I feel something touching my leg under the table. I look up at him and he smiles and tells me he’s a stripper and that we should get out of here and have some fun. I got up and ran out the restaurant. Appalled, I call my friend and tell her what happened, she was surprised to here that and apologized like crazy. All I could think of was thank God we didn’t even kiss because God only knows what he had. NEVER AGAIN will I allow my friends or anyone for that matter to set me up with anyone under any circumstances and I don’t care if he’s the President’s son, I will NOT agree to any more blind dates especially after the “lovely” experience I had that Saturday night. And I will not ever forget that date for as long as I live and neither will my friend because I still complain about it till today.

Desperate Times

August 26th, 2012 by Musicality (Westminister, CO)

After being single for some time, I decided to let a guy I had been acquaintances with take me out, despite the fact that I wasn’t physically attracted to him at all (we all know it matters). He showed up at my house in a t-shirt with stains on it, and wanted to go to a park so we could “actually talk” since a movie doesn’t really lend itself to talking. Of course, this also indicates, “I have no money to take you out.” After a bit of time sitting in a park chatting, he took me back home. Luckily, he didn’t try for a kiss or anything, but he proceeded to ask me to be his girlfriend many times over the next several weeks. I finally had to turn my “No, thanks, I’m busy” into the blunt “I don’t really like you.” He asked me out several times after that.

Timing is Everything.

I had really liked a guy my friend introduced me to. He was really cute and she arranged a meeting. He asked me out for a date and we agreed on a time for him to pick me up. That night I began getting ready early because I really wanted to look good. One hour before it was time, he knocked on the door. I had just gotten out of the shower and threw on a robe. I answered the door. The robe was up to my neck. He was surprised that he had gotten the time wrong. I had wet hair and no makeup so I asked him if he could come back. He agreed to come back an hour later. He did but the date was really bad all night. Later my friend called him to find out what he thought. He said he was really offended that I had answered the door in my robe and that I wasn’t ready. He wouldn’t give me another chance. What was I supposed to do? Not answer the door? He was the one that had the time wrong. I’m sure he didn’t want me to go with wet hair and no makeup. It was a no win situation. I saw him many months later. He was just as cute as ever but he totally ignored me.

I once met a guy on a social networking website when I was somewhat desperate and lonely after a break up from my 3 year relationship with an ex boyfriend. This guy seemed amazing! We had so many things in common. He had the same awesome sense of humor as myself and really did make me laugh. Finally, after begging for awhile, he emailed me a picture of himself. He looked so cute, dressed up in some silly 1900’s gangster costume in a sepia posed picture. He said it was an old Halloween pic someone took of him. As we were getting closer to meeting, though, some things were beginning to make very little sense. He said he was my age, 27, but he sounded on the phone like a guy in his forties. Finally, he admitted the picture from Halloween wasn’t even himself. Once I told him how I felt about that, he started making some crazy talk about his ex wife and not being in control and other random things. Before we even established our first date, this faux 40 year old embittered man lied to me, sobbed into the phone, and generally put me off dating for a very long time. I still haven’t attempted it since then.

It’s a wonder he doesn’t get our more often.

My worst dating experience was with a man I met through a mutual friend and was set up with on a blind date. To start off within ten minutes of meeting him he belched right in my face and did not even think to apologize. I brushed this off but already had a negative first impression. Then when we began talking all he did was mention himself and all his sparkling accomplishments. I could hardly get a word in edge wise. He ate very sloppily, spilling his spaghetti all over his shirt and chewing with his mouth wide open, talking as he did so. To top it all off at the end of the night he did not even pay for my bill. Needless to say, a second date did not ensue.

The Creepy Doctor

February 24th, 2012 by Ronnie (Chicago, IL)

I guess my first mistake was meeting a guy on myspace. You live and learn. 5’10” turned out to be 5’4″ with lifts in his shoes and the thick curly hair from his 10 year old picture must have fallen out of his head and multiplied on the visible parts of his body. He literally had a sweater growing out of his t shirt. Looks aren’t everything but sadly the personality was not much better. He made a point of mentioning that he was a doctor repeatedly and that he drive a BMW. Bully for you but enough bragging. He made a big deal that he’d be buying the drinks, and I could “wink wink” (he actually said wink wink) pay him back later. He actually had the nerve to put his hand on my thigh after this. Now, I know, myspace, but my profile wasn’t racy in the least and stayed that I was a kindergarten teacher at a Catholic school so I don’t think I had this coming. I paid him back by excusing myself to the bathroom. I then excused myself all the way to my car and home. I blocked him from my account. Now I know never use myspace as a dating site.

Weird or Just a Cheapskate?

February 16th, 2012 by LoveOnline (Ft. Worth, Texas)

I started trying to date online a couple of years ago. I had just graduated college and thus didn’t have time to go out to clubs to meet people like I had before. It took a few months before I got any responses from people I was also attracted to. A very nice sounding and nice looking guy messaged me and asked me out to dinner. I went, and it was great at first. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was great. The catch? At the end he wanted me to pay. Mind you, he had picked out the really expensive restaurant himself. As if that wasn’t enough, he got extremely upset when I wouldn’t let him kiss me at the end of the night.

My Prom Date

January 20th, 2012 by Meg (Albany, NY)

When I was a senior in high school I was really excited about prom and the date prospects. I had a date but only weeks before the prom him and his girlfriend had gotten back together and naturally wanted to go together as they were both seniors as well. Last minute I had a friend set me up so I didn’t have to go alone. My date couldn’t have been any less interested which was rough because a girl takes so much time preparing for prom. To prove how uninterested in me he was he refused to dance or talk and at our friends after party he ended up making out in the corner with a friend of mine. The only thing that taught me was to never go on a blind date again.

The Downer

January 16th, 2012 by Felicia (Salem, Oregon)

Before I met my husband, I was seeing this guy, let’s call him Donny. We met through a popular dating website that’s supposed to match you up with people with which you are compatible. I am not sure what he put on his application, but he was really toxic. We met up, really casual, out for coffee and then a stroll through a mall I hadn’t been to in years. I was really looking forward to it and feeling really positive based on all of our communications thus far. Not even a half hour into the date, and this guy hates on every woman he sees. “She’s wearing too much perfume. Should that girl be wearing that? Wow, is she ugly!” I kid you not! Then, at the end of the date, he proceeded to tell me everything that was wrong with me. I could only sit there stunned. Why did he even want to go with me in the first place? What a woman-hater. I ran for the hills after that date. No way would I go out with him again. Thankfully, I knew there were plenty of guys out there that still love women.
