In the world of dating, not everything is rainbows, butterflies, and instant fireworks. While some of us have had memorable and magical first dates, others–unfortunately–have had some pretty bad ones.
Sure, the good dates make up for the bad ones–sometimes–but, some bad dates are so bad, it’s literally traumatic. And, when I hear stories of horrible, awkward, uncomfortable, and downright offensive date situations–I promise myself that I will never, ever go on a date again–even if it means I live with my dog for the rest of my life with no love to be found.
And, yet, hearing other people’s bad date stories do make us feel better about the bad dates that we’ve had before, so, if that’s what it takes–I’m all in. One Twitter user asked the world of female-Twitter to share their firt date stories and…
Ladies: tell me your worst date.

Holy sh*t, I feel better about my own love life–but, still am swearing off dating apps, dates, and any sort of human interaction for good.
Oh god. He pretended 2b too drunk to drive home. I let him stay at my apt. The next am he came into my room to show me his morning wood. I politely declined with a classic “I’m on my period.”
“Are you bleeding from your mouth too?” was his reply. Dinner @bennigans #THEworstdate

We went to park to walk around. He pointed to a ravine and said "jokingly" that he could probably hide my body there and no one would ever find it.

His ex girlfriend drove up in her car and went on a high speed chase after us. I held on for dear life.

OMG so I went out with this dude who insisted on taking me out from the first day he met me. When I finally agreed, Dude asked me to pick him up (45 min out.) We went to a bar of his choice, when we got there he got so drunk and kept telling everyone I was his fiancé….

Went on a date w this dude who asked me out. We’re seated, he sees the prices of the menu and goes “this is too expensive,” waits for the free water and stuff they give out, takes the free stuff and is like “ok let’s go somewhere else,” takes me to a musty buffet w sticky floors

He picked me up then went back to his house to pick up his mother, because she was hungry and wanted to tag along. We went to the movies as well and she sat between us?. Btw she talked the whole time during the movie.

Went to use the bathroom after dinner. Woman in bathroom tells me she's his co-worker and he's married.

Took me to a dinner where he didn't make reservations, so we couldn't get a table. Go to a different place where he proceeds to drink too much. On the way home asks me to get out two stops before my actual station to watch him pee into the train tracks. https://t.co/nLQ5Ecg0Kr

Invited me 2 go out dancing, I got dressed up hella cute. We go to the club, I start dancing, he watches me dance but wouldn’t join me. He then encouraged me 2 dance w/ other dudes – I get weirded out. Then he says he sees some pimps & hoes – that’s when I realize HE is a pimp.

Invited over to a dude’s house for dinner with the pending eviction notice on the door. Was supposed to make me dinner but he had no food. I left him and went to eat.
