Here are some bad date stories from awfulfirstdates.com:
"So, I met this guy at a club, he was cute, and we exchanged numbers. He started texting me a lot and asked me out for coffee. We made pleasant small talk: stories about our childhood, sports, favorite TV shows, etc. Then he adds that he always has to fart–when he’s in the car, at the club, in restaurants, and every time he sits down. I don’t say anything, so he follows it up, “Actually, I need to fart right now,” and lets one loose in the coffee shop, which I could hear. I said I had a family dinner and and left."
"I knew the guy was health-conscious, but when I ordered a chicken salad, he proceeded to inform me that I should not eat the cranberries or vinaigrette dressing due to their “overly high sugar content.” After the dietary lecture, he started talking about the contestants on that season’s Dancing with The Stars. The conversation turned to people who overcome physical disabilities to rise to stardom, and he looked at me square in the face and said, “Oh, you mean like Helen Keller…wasn’t she on ‘Dancing With the Stars?'”
"Out of the blue a guy I’ve had a massive crush on for years asked me out for dinner and movie. As a broke college student, this sounded pretty exciting since life for me is pretty much Hot Pockets and textbooks. When the day of our date finally arrived, I waited..and waited..and waited, but no word from him. He was nearly an hour late, so he suggested we skip the restaurant, though I was starving. At the theater, he all but pushes me out of the way to get in front of me in line so he can pay for his own ticket and leaves me to buy my own. Then in the movie, he keeps talking through all of the dialogue. He doesn’t want to get dinner afterward–he says he needs to drop me off now so he can go to a party and get drunk."
