this is one of the best things I've ever read!
He had his phone out and was texting during most of the movie but by sheer dumb luck he fell asleep with the phone on the arm rest. I waited a few minutes, deleted my phone number out of his contacts and left the theater! I called my brother to pick me up and I never heard from the guy ever again.

My stories pale in comparison to someone's date trying to exorcise them during a seizure.
Went on a blind date w/a guy who did nothing but complain the entire time. Serious complaining! He hated everything. I don't remember where we even went for dinner, but I recall it was someplace like Dennys. Then we went to ET. He looked similar to ET, too. During the entire movie he complained about everything. BTW-I cannot stand Loud Mouth Plot Explainers. Nothing more annoying. Anwyay, we're done w/the movie and I cannot wait to get home. He spent the entire drive home telling me what a horrible date I was. He told me I was ugly, boring and he would never be attracted to me. Which leaves me baffled, because...I got out of the car and started to slam the door w/o a word and he asked me why I wasn't going to invite him in? My response was, "NO COFFEE FOR YOU!" and I slammed the door and ran to my apartment. I'm not attractive and I'm hideous and awful, but he wanted s*x. Ok then.
Next date was The Steve. One thing you need to understand about The Steve is that it was all about The Steve. We met for coffee and after 10 minutes I just couldn't take it anymore. So, I told The Steve that no one could possibly love him as much as he did and that I couldn't take it anymore. I stormed out and went home and enjoyed a nice evening w/o The Steve.
Then there's the date to the baseball game. Not a blind date, but I didn't know the guy that well. So, we go to a ballgame and he seems nice enough, not my type, but not someone that I would feel the need to run from either. However, the entire way home that changed. We had to drive a freeway and he decided to pour his heart to me. Turns out his mother thinks he's a failure, eventhough he's getting a teaching credential and working hard in college. He wants to die just to show her. Every single time we hit and overpass he goes on and on and bout how he is tempted to drive over the railing and crash the car, just to show his mother what she missed. However, he wouldn't give her that satisfaction. He is a failure and asks me to reassure him that he's not a loser. After that I did everything in my power to avoid him. He went on a trip to Israel the next week and two weeks later he calls me to tell me that I'm the only person that will receive a gift, because he loves me. I never answered his calls, again. About 15 years later I ran into him and though I had made it very clear that he was never to contact me, again and that I could never love or even like him(had to be persistent and a bit mean when he wouldn't stop calling) he asked me if I wanted to go for coffee. Um, did I miss a meeting? By then I had been in a serious relationship for years(w/now dh)and found it funny.
Oh, I could go on...Wrong person to ask.
I'd like to help you out. Which way did you come in?

I am loving these stories. This thread is almost as good as the GS Crop Nightmare stories thread.
My Junior Senior prom date (didn't really know him - he was in my math class) took me to a nice restaurant before the dance. When we came out of the restaurant, he asked if we could get in the back seat and make out. In front of the restaurant. Um, no. He didn't ask me out again and I wasn't heartbroken about it.

|Posted: 10/4/2012 8:42:48 PM|I went to the drive-in one night with this guy. The drive-in was in the next town north of our town. He had a real cool car.
On the way home this other car came up behind us and pulled along side of us wanting to race. This made my date mad, so he tried to out run him. We were flying down the road, needless to say I was frightened. He got ahead of the guy and was able to pull into an area were the road department was storing gravel. The other guy pulled in behind us. My date spun the car around and told me, "Open the glove box and get me my gun." I told him no, just let the other guy go. The other car backed up and left, thankfully.

It was not the first, but the second date. For our first date we went to costco and bought those cheese raviolis and then back to his apartment to cook and eat them.
Our second date we decided to go to our singles group to play broom hockey (there was no charge to get into this event, BTW). So, of course to do that we needed brooms, and duck tape to reinforce said brooms. So we went to the dollar store to buy some brooms and duck tape. As we are at the register, he turns to me with this annoyed look on his face and says, "So I guess I'm picking this up too?" Lol it was 3 dollars, and he acted like I was bleeding him dry. Not a good look.
OH, and when he dropped me off at home, he backed his car into a telephone pole as he was leaving and his bumper fell off. My mom and I were sitting in my bedroom looking out the window (with the lights off in the room and the blinds down, so he couldn't see) and just cracking up, it was so bad but soooo funny.

I'm afraid I'm someone else's weirdest date story. We worked together for a year, flirting the entire time, and I'm extremely attracted to him, but he's got an on again/off again girlfriend, and I don't need the drama.
A year later we're in the same class in college, he's married to girlfriend now, but we sit together and occasionally study together, and we still have the same great rapport, but not so flirty. After the class ends we don't contact each other, because, you know, he's married.
Two years later, he comes into the bank where I work, tells me he's divorced. We finally have the first date that has really been in the works for us for years now. Date goes well, he walks me to the door, leans in to kiss me goodnight. As soon as the kiss starts to get really good, I begin to laugh uncontrollably. I apologize profusely, we try again. I laugh again, before we even get started. We didn't try a third time. He never called me again.
|Posted: 10/4/2012 9:56:41 PM|I can't remember anything wierd that happened on a date - just one of my dates himself that was wierd. He was in his early 20's, looked like a cane toad, had blond hair, a face that was permanently bright red and several of his teeth were missing. It wasn't a blind date, I'd know him for a few years - his sister was my best friend.
I got conned into the date by another friend whose boyfriend was a mate of his. I said no for months but they finally wore me down (I was only 16) and I agreed to a double date just to stop them nagging me. I never made that mistake again. The night was as horrible as I thought it would be. He kept trying to hold my hand but he was sweaty.
When we pulled up at my house afterwards, I opened the car door and jumped out as quickly as I could. The only good thing about that night was the end of it! My friend was sorry she pushed me into it - and we did remain friends.
About a week later, I heard from a neighbour that this dork and I were engaged!! He was telling everyone we were gatting married. I set the neighbour straight immediately.
A few months months after the date, he fronted my mother in our backyard and was trying to convince her to get me to go out with him again. I walked up to them and told him (nicely) that I just wasn't interested. He then pulled a large carving knife out of his coat. Mum told him not to be so stupid and to leave right now or she would ring the police. He said he was sorry and didn't mean to scare us, but he loved me. Thankfully he left me alone after that.

I went on a date with a guy I met at a bar; you can see where this is going, can't you? I was 21 and kind of naive.
Anyway. He picked me up the week after I met him in his super sporty Jag and I was seriously impressed. I love cars. We drove up the coast to a beach and where we were supposed to go swimming. We ended up not swimming and just sitting around on the beach, but when we were sitting on our towels he was all over me like a cheap suit--I swear he must have thought I was ok with actual sex on the beach. With spectators. I had to keep fighting him off. Ew.
I was ready to go home, but he insisted that we stop for an early dinner on the way back. He parked, we walked down the street and then he stopped in front of a shop and said he wanted to go try a few things on. Ooookaaaay, strange choice to make on a date that's not going well, but whatever. But wait, what did he try on? Tights. He came out of the dressing room wearing nothing but tights. He pranced around the store showing off in his odd green tights. WTH? The sales girl and I just stared at each other--neither of us could believe how weird this guy was!
He still wanted dinner after his trip through the hosiery department and that was also a bit of a disaster, so he finally took me home. I swear, his car was the best part of the date and even that didn't make up for everything else. Needless to say, it was our only date.

Oh I have a couple of doozies.
I lived in Biloxi, MS and I was drivin along HWY 90 which runs along the beach. I had my windows down and sunroof open. A guy flirted with me at the light, he was pretty cute too. He stayed with me for a couple of lights, so we decided to pull over (public place!) and we decided to walk the beach and talk a bit. He seemed really nice and he was full of compliments!! We sit down on one of the big pipes that go out to the ocean and we're sitting next to each other talking. Then all of a sudden I sense something weird going on with him, but I don't want to turn and stare. So I fake dropping something, thinking someone is walking up behind us or whatever.....he was masturbating!!!!!!!!!!! in public with me right next to me. I was so shocked.
Then I did a radio call in thing (this was before the internet). My friend dared me to! So I met this guy, he came with a female friend to make sure I felt safe. Well he needed to stop and pick up something at his ex's house. Ok......so we go.
omg. He decided that he was mad at her and her proceeded to tear up her stuff in her house!!!! I mean beat the crap out of everything!! I was terrified!!

Went on a first date with a guy I met through work colleagues. We went to dinner and then to his place for a drink where he only had a bed to sit on in his studio apartment and then he let his pet FLYING SQUIRREL out of its cage and it kept running in circles on the crown molding by the ceiling. Totally creeped me out.

A coworker set me up with her husbands cousin (I had seen pictures of him and she was always saying what a nice guy he was and that if she was single he'd be they type of guy she'd date). He was dressed nice, brought me flowers, picked me up in a luxury SUV. On the drive he immediately tells me that he is younger than I had been told he was and that he was afraid I wouldn't go out with him had he told me the truth over the phone. I start worrying he's underage. It turns out he was 3 years younger than me, wasn't a big deal to me. But now I'm thinking what else don't I know.
Then I find out that he lives out of state and had driven a long way just for the date. (He was origionally from my area but was relocated for work and was trying to relocate back.) I wasn't looking for a long distance thing. And there was more pressure on me knowing he drove hours just to meet me.
Then he pulls into a catering hall and tells me that this is where he wants to have his wedding reception! I thought that was weird but he was very big into gormet food so I kind of overlooked that. He then took me to a really nice restaurant. The conversation was going well until he told me that he had killed someone! It turns out that he had struck and killed a pedestrian years back and how he lives with the guilt and grief everyday. I don't know that I would have shared that on a first date.
The rest of the date went ok. He called a few times after he was back home wanting me to come visit and stay with him in his state. I didn't feel comfortable with that. Afterall I had only met him once. Then I find out that a female friend of his was interested in him and was very mad about his date with me. I think they were dating! Shortly after that he was in town staying at my coworkers house and couldn't understand why I didn't want to come over and see him again.

|Posted: 10/5/2012 11:05:32 AM|Oh, man, I'm sad that this thread isn't longer. These are great!
Mine's pretty tame.
My senior prom, I wasn't dating anyone. I knew two brothers who went to another school. The one was very outgoing, a total flirt, but hot as they come. His brother was quieter, a little more reckless and redneck. I wanted to go as friends with the first bro, but he had a long-time girlfriend who wasn't a fan of that idea (I hadn't known he had a girlfriend, obviously). So the other brother and I decided to go to both his prom and mine. I was very clear about pointing out that we were going as FRIENDS, and he agreed.
In the meantime, we went on one "date" to get to know each other better. His idea of a date apparently consisted of cruising the mall in his dumpy pickup to show me off to his cronies. Lovely.
Fast forward to my Prom Night, which was two weeks before his: Dude is pulling out the stops. He got a limo. He brought flowers. He brought sparkling cider and glasses to toast.
We head to the venue, a nice, upscale place downtown. It's dinner and dancing all at the same place. Everyone's there, dancing, and all he wants to do is try to kiss me. And I'm totally skeeved out by him. And he's roping me into every dance, so I spent the whole night dodging his lips. He would NOT get the message.
When the Prom was over, we had after-Prom back at the school. We head out, and he only had rented the limo to get us to the dinner. Now we had his beater pickup again. We bumped our way back to the school, and on the way he's trying to put his hand on my knee and making other pretty blatant overtures, and I'm having none of it, which is pissing him off.
When we got to the afterProm, I blew him off for what was apparently the last time, so he marched in and spent the evening flirting with my BFF, which was fine by me, because I finally got to enjoy myself. At the end of the night, we turned in our tickets for a big pile of prize drawings. He won 2 tickets to Cedar Point; I won a 14K gold bracelet, and then the BIG prize drawing came, and I WON! A 19" color TV w/remote - a big deal back then. So I made his sorry butt carry it out to his car for me.
Two weeks later was his prom, and he started in on me again, and again, I refused his advances. This time, he was REALLY pissed off, especially because there was a girl there (who I knew because she used to attend my school, where we were friends), and she wanted nothing more than to be with him, and followed him around all night. She couldn't have him, he couldn't have me, they were all miserable. To top it off, his afterProm SUCKED, and had no prizes, and after 3 hours of trying to keep him off me, I was fried. I just wanted to go home, and he finally agreed to take me.
2 a.m., we're 15 minutes away from my house, and he's driving like a complete maniac. Just as he's about to turn onto my street, red and blue lights flash in the rear view mirror. Yep, a speeding ticket topped off his night. He was PISSED. And I laughed the entire time, all during the cop's questions, and the wait for the ticket, and back up into my driveway. It was such a fitting end to the night. I was glad I'd held him off.
That was 20-some years ago. That guy fathered a pile of kids with a pile of women. He can't hold down a job, so he went into the military, but of course didn't take to that much. He's a skeevy jerk. I'm still glad I dodged that one.

My date "confessed" to me he was looking for a wife to care for his 5 children, and thought I seemed like a nice person. We did remain friends, but there was no attraction. BTW, he did find someone.
|Posted: 10/5/2012 11:26:47 AM|OMG, how did I forget this one. First date with my DH. He took me to a fancy dinner playhouse, where his cousin was the choreographer for the dancers. I wore a low cut evening dress. While meeting some of his family present, I felt a tickle go down my back. All of the sudden, my top is exposed to the waist! No bra, built into the dress, my boobies exposed for the world to see. Yes, the zipper broke at the top and instantly unzipped itself all the way down!!!

Guy kept messaging me but I wasn't really interested. He was persistnat so we ended up talking on the phone a few times and I gave in and met him for coffee one day after work.
I was sitting in my car waiting for him and he screams out my name to get my attention. I get out of the car and he is in sweatpants, in need of a shave and wearing a baseball cap. Not a great first impression.
He eyed me up and down stating "not bad" but he made fun of my shoes. He kept commenting on my appearance and I was getting a creepy vibe. We were still in the parking lot. He showed me his crappy car and sports memoribilia he had in the trunk. He got mad when I wasn't impressed and came off very abrasive.
There was no way I was going in to even have a cup of coffee. So I told him that I didn't think there was a connection and we probably should not waste our time having coffee. He cursed me and told me it is no wonder my husband left me (which he assumed was the case.)I got im my car and just left while he was ranting.
He messaged me many times. Asking for a "second date." No way in hell!
Anyway that night I met another gentleman for coffee; this was more of a blind date situation. We are still together 2 years later

|Posted: 10/5/2012 12:47:47 PM|As I'm reading through these stories, I've been formulating in my mind how to tell my own story. Then I read this one:
He starts to clear our plates, get dessert & I think this is my moment. I'm going to run. I slip off my flats, start tip toeing towards the door when all of the sudden a woman starts banging on the door, screaming for the guy. "Jeff, I know you're in there. Open this door." She's pounding so hard I think she's about to break the door down. I freeze, he comes out of the kitchen & signals for me to move away from the door. We end up hiding in the kitchen, arguing in whispered voices about what we should do. I say call police, he wants to ignore her until she goes away.
Finally the pounding stops. I tell him I'm getting the hell out of there. He finally admits its his girlfriend & says she's probably waiting in parking lot so I should just spend the night. He says I should sleep with him in his bed so he knows I'm safe. I told him I'd take my chances & left. I was definitely safer outside than I was in his apartment. What a tool!
I think we dated the same guy!! Back in the early 80s when I was about 19, I went on a blind double date with a friend of mine and her boyfriend. She knew the guy she was fixing me up with and said he was a really great guy. So friend and her BF pick me up and we go to my date's place to pick him up. We get there and he had just gotten out of the shower and was not fully dressed yet. I think he just wanted me to see his bare chest. I admit - he was a nice looking guy. Reminded me then of Denny Terrio (you know, the disco dancer!) Then, as he's finishing getting dressed, there's a knock on the door. He gets all panicky, herds us into his bedroom and shuts all the lights off!! He told us all to be quiet! He said it was an ex-girlfriend who was stalking him! She goes around the house banging on all the windows yelling, "Kevin, I know you're in there. Open the door!" He said we can't leave until he's sure she's gone! It was strange, but we were all laughing about it!
So finally she left and we proceeded on the date. We went to a roller skating rink where he told me he worked. He was the guy who skated around the rink making sure everybody was following the rules. So he knew all the teeny bopper girls there, and they just fell all over him! Skating went okay when I had a chance to actually skate with him. He was all about himself and the girls!
Then it was time to leave, and he tells me that a couple girls needed a ride home and did I mind if we give them a ride. So we all climb into the back of my friend's Pinto, and since there isn't much room, the girls sit on his lap! We drop the girls off and proceed on our date. The rest of the night went okay.
He called me a few times (we didn't live near each other and neither of us had a car), and I liked him okay. Then I had a birthday party and invited him. So my friend went to pick him up, got to the house where the party was, and informed me that he brought his "cousin" who was visiting from out of town! Really?? You brought a date to my birthday party? I didn't see him again after that! I'm a one-woman man kind of girl!
On a side note, the night we went roller skating I had run into a group of old friends of mine from high school. Several years later, we would learn that my now dh was with that group of friends that night!

ETA: Forgot about another weird 1st date: guy and I had plans to go to a music thing but dinner first. Turns out "dinner" was at the home of this guy who was mentoring my date. So date and guy go off to do their mentor thing and I am stuck with the wife and kids. Kids are running around, wife is trying to make dinner and now is stuck small-talking a stranger. She asks how long we've been dating, how I know him, etc and I admit it's our first date and she gives me this pity look. LOL
Date ended up being my dh but I have let him know that was a pretty crappy thing to spring on me! I think it's because he was poor and it was a free dinner! LOL He's taken me to plenty of $$$$ dinners over the years to make up for it.

So, he's in college, and meets this girl. They begin dating -- not too serious, but a little more than casually. DH's brother, a year older than him, mentions this girl he met at a bar & has started dating. When DH & BIL start to compare notes, they realize it's the same girl. (Which is funny, because DH & BIL look pretty similar.)
Anyhow, to have a little fun with this awkward situation, the boys plan a party. DH invites said girl . . . and when she shows up to the house, BIL answers the door! Girl looks momentarily confused until she realizes what she's gotten herself into . . . does an about-face, and runs down the driveway never to show her face again!!

Attributing bad dates to online dating? Really? It should also convince you that blind dates, being set up by friends and family, meeting someone in a bar or actually any public place, or in essence any way you might meet someone is a really bad idea. Also, I would suspect that if someone started a thread about the best date you've had, you would have similar positive responses about online dating.

I went out with this guy who I had know one of my accounts at work (only met him 4 or 5 times). He left the company and then emailed me that he liked me and now that he was gone could he please take me out.
I still lived at home (i was 20) so I told him I would meet him at the restaurant, he got all upset and said no he had to meet my parents..he was argumentative before the date *hello red flag*
I finally meet him for dinner, hardly talks at all..so I start telling him about my recent vacation to Hawaii and he says "HOLD ON - WHAT? , you went to Hawaii - why would you go there, what kind of single girl goes to Hawaii, you should be ashamed of yourself." At this point he is talking really really loud, I am so embarrassed..and he keeps going then says " How could you do this to me?, you ruined it for me, where are we going to go on our honeymoon?..that was my dream, a honeymoon in Hawaii."
I am now looking for the nearest exit thinking what the heck..I need to run
He starts to cry..sobbing how awful I am and I have ruined Hawaii for him...

I exchanged messages with this guy who was gorgeous in his profile - tall, nice looking and had a great job. We talked on the phone and made arragnements to meet for dinner. I never let anyone pick me up the first date from a dating site.
So we arrange to meet about 7pm on a Friday at a local restuarant. But he calls me on Tuesday and asks if I can meet him on Thursday instead because he's got to go out of town for business Friday and doesn't know if he will be back. Sure. No problem.
Calls me on Weds and asks if we can meet at 4pm on Thursday because he has a business meeting later on Thursday. Uh, ok. This is starting to sound strange, but I'll go with it.
I sat at that restaurant and waited for him. About 4:20 I called him and he said that he had been late from work and was just walking in the door. So I get up and watch him walk in.
He is about 4 feet tall, bald, has on a zebra shirt and shiney pants with cownboy boots. He takes one look at me and says "You're not what you described in your profile. I don't think it will work." Then he turned and walked out.
I was exactly my profile. I never lied about anything because I hated being lied to and didn't want to waste my time or theirs. So I followed him out in the parking lot. Then I see an elderly woman in the car that he's getting into. And I hear him say, "you wouldn't have liked her Ma."
I thank the gods every day that I wasn't like my profile.

We are at a nice supperclub type steakhouse and the wait is 45 minutes. She is chugging down the drinks and keeps getting up and walking around in her tiny short dress, talking loudly, etc.
Both our groups are seated about the same time and we are not far from each other. I'm with my kids and all of a sudden the girl is trying to get into the bathroom and he is holding the door so she can't get in. She turns to the waitress and says, can you tell him to let me in.
At this point we were not sure what was going on and went about our dinner. He gets up to go outside and we can hear the waitress talking to the people seated next to them. Everyone thought he left her, so they are saying, she really shouldn't be driving, she's drunk, etc.
They both end up coming back to the table. He is sitting there eating his steak and she is bitching at him. Finally a guy at another table turns around and tells her she is a bitch and doesn't deserve him..lol. We are like . She gets into it with the guy and says, well he's messaging a 16 year old girl on Facebook and callling her sweety and sugar, so what do you think about that.
Her date just sits there and continues to eat his steak while they are arguing . Doesn't phase him. She gets up and leaves, he stays and finishes his steak.
We leave not long after and see him sitting on the curb outside and think she left him without a ride. We pull up next to him and ask if he needs to use the phone to call someone and he says, no, I'm just waiting on her. She is off to the side of one of the buildings talking on her phone. As we pull off, she is now even more pissed that a girl pulls up to talk to him and starts running down the alley with him trailing after her.
What a train wreck!

My first date,and last,a double date with my friends, boyfriends, friend. I'm sixteen and we go to the Sonic , eat, he is nice and we go for a cruise, Foreigner's Urgent came on and he starts singing in my ear BADLY and he doesn't know all the words so he is singing and mumbling at the same time, and I was dodging his hands from my thighs the whole time, smacking them away. It was so bazaar, I just scooted closer to the door and kept a steady stream of conversation with my friend..
I haven't been on a "date" since.

Hey, don't judge the Internet dating!!!
The first person I officially 'met' from eHarmony is the same guy that I'm going to go on vacation to Cabo with next week (he also just got me a promise ring!) LOL...
It does happen, but it's been a LONG process of really bad luck with guys beforehand, but no weird date stories, LOL...

First and only date: We had really great chemistry--until he drank too much, started calling me by his ex-wife's name, and then loudly begged me to come back to him. Of course, conversations all around us in the restaurant ceased and everyone was staring.

|Posted: 10/6/2012 6:13:52 AM|I started talking to a guy online, and turned out we went to neighboring high schools, knew a bunch of the same people, had fb friends in common, became friends on fb (and I snooped his profile ), etc, so I didn't approach him as a 'guy I met online'... We had talked daily for about a month when one day at work someone had HGTV on... There's this show where a guy helps you renovate your property to be able to rent it out... (Maybe even called Rental Property, not sure...lol) I wasn't paying attention really, but then heard a familiar voice and looked up to see my 'date', in the process of renovating a home, with his WIFE I sent him a text message asking if he'd ever been on tv, he says yes, and asks me how I recognized him I cancelled the date we had for the next night when we were going to finally meet in person...
Can't say HGTV doesn't have the best tips
