1-800-GET-LOST

rude

I was 18 years old and in my very first relationship. The person I was dating was a year older than I was. Neither of us drove. He lived in the next town. A mutual friend would actually drive us on our dates and we frequently double dated with her. One day, after going to see a movie, my boyfriend thought a romantic place to go would be the McDonalds inside of a walmart. It was not my ideal spot but we all humored him. After he spent a lot of time complaining about his McDonalds not being served to him on the spot and the amount of fries he received my friend and I walked around. He was being a baby and kind of a douche-bag, so we actually left him at Walmart. It was sadly about a forty minute drive away from his hometown. (We basically lived in the middle of no where.) After we left him, we called his mom and told him what he had done and that we had left him there. And his parents had to go and pick him up. We broke up shortly after. Our entire relationship lasted about three months.

The newly released

My worst date ever was with a guy I met from a dating website. I had to pick him up, later to find out because he lost his license to a DUI. He told me over dinner how he had just been released from prison the week before for theft charges. He even asked me to drive him to his probation office the next day. Needless to say I cut dinner short and never spoke to him again.

We saw Elf

I met this girl from a mutual friend. I had her phone number and were just texting each other. We decided to meet. I picked her up and she lit up a cigarette in my car. I said “there’s no smoking in my car” but she decided to smoke anyway. Then we saw ELF with Will Farrell. It was clear she though the film was too childish, and it was horribly awkward watching the movie together. Then when I was taking her home she asked to be dropped off at the bus stop instead of having me take her all the way home! It was not a fun date and I never heard from her again.

I had been out of the dating scene a few years (in prison) so I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone. A woman I had been talking to online lived close to friends I hadn’t scene in years, so I suggested she meet me there. Now I knew my friends to be pretty economically impaired but the house had been solid and usually clean when I last visited. Unfortunately, my friends had recently acquired a new male cat … that had sprayed the entire house!! She eventually found the house and came in to meet me and my friends. She was very polite but you could tell she was appalled by conditions at their house. NOT a great first impression. We went to a local bar for drinks and it soon became apparent that she not only considered the bar a bit “earthy” for her, but she really had NOT been paying attention to our online conversations. She wasn’t even as attractive as I am ( and I’m no prize but still in decent shape for my age!) but you could tell by her dress and accessories she was used to people in higher tax brackets than me & my peers. Although I had told her 2 or 3 times online, she seemed a bit shocked when I mentioned how recently I had been incarcerated. I really believe things would have gone much more smoothly had we not started off the night in a place with such terrible odors. The good news is I DID learn something that night. Having money does NOT give you manners nor the inclination to look past the surface. And being poor isn’t so bad with friends!

Exchanging “Kisses”

The first girl that I ever went on an actual date with did not turn out quite like I imagined. I did the cliche date that I had always heard about growing up, dinner followed by a movie. I had also heard growing up that there was the chance of a “goodnight kiss”, so I was excited and nervous. I had practiced my kissing, on pillows and hands of course, all week leading up to the date. I couldn’t wait for that magical moment that we would get to kiss. We ate dinner at a fast food hamburger place, keep in mind that I was in high school, and then went to the theater to see some comedy movie. During the movie, we were holding hands, and I decided to go for it. I leaned in and planted a kiss on her. The kiss was going well at first, but as our lips parted, there was suddenly a rush of air filling my mouth along with a small grunting sound. My magical first kissed had turned into her burping in my open mouth. My cheeks puffed out, and I wasn’t quite sure what to do. I didn’t want to swallow her burp air, so I of course, blew it back into her mouth. Needless to say, the mood was killed, and we had no second date.

I had to do a project with a girl in my class, and all during our meeting she talked about the blind date she was going on and how nervous she was. I ended up doing all the work and told her that she was really no help to me. After that, she was very bitchy and threw me some nice insults before she stormed off. That night, me and my friend went on a double date with this girl he liked and her friend. The friend (who was supposed to be for me) was the girl from my class. It went on from there, we didn’t say one word to each other and my friend cant really keep conversation. On top of that, my friend tried to make conversation on how great a friend I was, and that the girl is lucky to have this opportunity with me. Then my friend payed the check and the girl my friend was interested in never called him again. I felt bad but it was probably for the best.

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.

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

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?

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.
