I was out for the evening in my favorite dance bar. He offered me a drink so we sat to get to know one another. Half way through my drink he turns to the wall and starts talking, he turns back to me and says 'The Spirits like you'. I finished my drink and excused myself. I went around the corner and saw a friend and asked for help and out the door we went. Never saw him again.

Ok. Went out with a nice lady for a first date. We agreed to meet at a diner near where she lived. While there she whipped out not one hand puppet to talk to me at the table, but two puppets who then began talking to each other ABOUT ME. It gets worse....shortly after her mom called and wanted to know if I met the puppets. Seriously. I could have sworn my brothers were playing a joke on me, but no. It was real. Was there a second date? I admit to nothing.

I was meeting a really HOT guy for dinner (first date). I mean I felt I was out of his league and he just step out of a romance novel or movie set. I had butterflies...oh I was so excited! Well I wasn't the only one that thought he was beautiful - so did he. Behind me at the very nice restaurant was a mirror on the wall and I could tell he was checking himself out thru dinner. He also talked about how awesome he was and would interrupt me if I tried to talk. So I went to the bathroom did the friend 911 call and when I got back to the table he was full on staring at himself and making sexy faces to himself. I got my 911 call from my friend and I was out of their laughing all the way!

I was invited out for coffee. I thought oh that's very nice and simple way to get to know this guy. As we were walking to the cafe he looks at me and says "We are going dutch. You pay for yours and I'll pay for mine." I stopped, looked him squarely in the eye and said "No Let's Not .. I don't want you to get in a financial bind. Coffee can be very expensive!" He stood there with this perpetual dumb look on his face as I turned and walked away.

I'd just moved to a new city for a job right out of college. I had few friends and no family there but I met a guy when I was out one night and we hit it off. He was super cute, his name was Brad and he was a real estate agent. Brad took me to dinner and we had not just a good date, but a GREAT date.
The next day, he went to a tuxedo fitting for his buddy's wedding. They made a day of it by taking a party bus and having drinks and then ended the evening by coming over to his place to play poker. He was texting me as the day went along and invited me to come over, meet his friends and hang out. I took this as a good sign - he must really like me if he wants to introduce me to his friends. He gave me the relative whereabouts of his house and I was to call him when I got to the main street ... [+]

It was our first date ~ and last. I had been picked up by a very nice guy who drove an older car although it was spotlessly clean. No problem there as my car was probably older than his. As we are driving, I noticed from the passenger side window sparks were coming from his car. Of course, I told him that I though he should pull over based on what I saw. Now, what did I do while he got out and looked? Just sat there like a dummy in the car until he told me that I had better get out as the car was on fire!
We were living in a small town so I told him that I would knock on the door of the home we were parked in front of to ask to use the phone to call the fire department. A precious 5 year old came to the door. I asked to see her mother as I wanted to know if I could use the telephone (yes, ... [+]

I was a freshman in college, barely 18, first time on my own in a new town when I met a local boy while out with some friends. He seemed nice enough so when he asked me on a date I said yes. He picked me up in an ugly old junker, which wouldn't have been a big deal, except he told me proudly that he'd bought it that day, *specifically* for our date. I was a little nervous at that point. He kept talking about how perfect we were for each other. He then proceeded to tell me that he could never sleep with me because it was just so beautiful that I was a virgin (and boy did my friends get in trouble for letting that slip!) Then in the same breath he proposes to me. Tells me he sees us together forever. I don't remember what flimsy excuse I came up with, all I could think was "How long is it going ... [+]

I had met this guy out a few times at a bar and we got along great. We even talked to each other after the drunk had worn off and still found each other engaging. So we decided to have an actual date.
We were both on a budget (having spent most of our earnings at the local watering hole) so instead of going out for a bite to eat, I suggested we make dinner. He was game and I offered to make him my oh so tasty, can't get enough, super fantastic pancakes. I like to keep things whimsical and fun. And let's face it, I liked the guy so I was trying to impress him. My mother always taught me that the fastest way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
He picks me up and we head to his place. The date is going wonderfully so far. He even surprised me with some Arnold Schwarzenegger movies ... [+]

I was asked out on a date by this guy i had met from a mutal friend. On the way out the door my Grandmother, whom I was living with at the time, asked me if i had any money with me. I said, "No, it's a date". She states a girl always brings money with her and gave me $20.00 (it was the 1980's, a 20 went a long way). The date started out OK, he opened the car door etc. We got to the club which had an entrance fee. He turns to me and said, 'You've got money right?". I had to pay my own way in! Needless to say he didn't even buy me a drink or dinner. Thank goodness there were free appetizers ! Needless to say, I found other guys to dance with and got a cab ride home. Grandma was right !

I was set up on a blind date by a co-worker. He was about 8yrs older than me but showed up in a basketball jersey and shorts (1st NO NO). We walk to the car and he makes a beeline for his own door, so I'm outside of his car waiting for him to open the door. He rolls the window down and shouts "It's open" (strike #2). We go out to dinner and as we are eating I watch in slllloooow motion as his fork comes to my plate and he is now eating from my plate. I guess I'm finished eating and ready to leave. He packs up my food to take home with him. As I'm getting out of the car eagerly he asks so can we get together soon. I turn and say "yes how about NEVER!!!"

Dear sir who I went on a date with the other night,
I didn't want to know that you're in debt or that you have a gambling problem or that your sister is sick or that you are losing your hair or that you are lactose or that you live with your mom or that you think you might have a fungus on your left foot…
IT WAS THE FIRST DATE!! and last, might I add.
I wish you would forget my name already and stop calling me!

my attractive colleague asked me out a few months back, so obviously i said yes. he took me to dinner and as soon as we sit down, he decides to give me his entire family history.. oh, and did i mention he printed me a family tree??? so i could trace his roots and see all the connections as he spoke, duh! not once does he even ask about MY family, G-d forbid. he just went on and on about his family until i knew everything, even the names of all his pets since he was 3! newsflash buddy… nobody cares!!

for our FIRST date, the guy decided to take me to a haunted house (no, it was not even during halloween)… sounds really cute if the guy's super cute bc you know you are going to end up holding hands the second you step into the haunted house, but when my blind date came to pick me up and instant attraction was zero… i think i was dreading holding onto him more than i was for the mummies about to pop out at me. we get there and 2 minutes in, i'm already scared, but wen i turn around, my date is gone.. i call his name, but no answer.. at least that got rid of the awkward hand holding.. but seriously, i cld not find him. i had to go through the entire house alone (!) and when i finally got out of there, i still didn't see him. THIRTY minutes later he comes out and without even apologizing asks ... [+]

I know, I know it's tacky and just about dangerous to actually meet in person someone you met online. I had been writing back and forth with a man whose thoughts and ability to convey them in written form were exceptional. However, he kept hedging about sending me his picture, saying something cryptic about his profession. Not to be daunted, I did some research and found him in a group picture with a post about his attendance at some kind of professional event. I agreed to meet him at a rather upscale restaurant in an area with which I was familiar. Maybe I should've checked the DATE of this event picture a bit closer? I arrived on time-ish. Why did the hostess give me this strange look and then an even stranger smile? Then she told me my date had been waiting for Quite Some Time... ... [+]

I went on a date with a fiiiiine young man. He was handsome, well dressed and very polite. He opened and closed everY DOOR FOR ME AND HELD MY HAND AS WE WALKED. we went out to Dinnner and afterwards he wanted to get a drink. He says that he doesn't like big crowds and likes to avoid trouble. He said he would rather be somewhere comfortable. I asked where we were going and he told me that his cousin had a really nice spot. We got to the place and as I entered I noticed that I was the only female, but I pushed it to the back of my head.."until....the first stripper came out! Yes, he took me to a strip joint. Not only a stip joint but to watch females dance. No wonder all the guys watched me as I entered, they probably thought I was a part of the show. NEEDLESS TO SAY, THAT WAS OUR LAST DATE! ... [+]
- His Date With His Phone
Posted on 8/22/2012 2:07:16 PM by Cheryl
This guy took me to a park to have a picnic… rlly sweet and
romantic… but I think he actually did everyyy pet peeve I hate. Firs,
he was a smacker. He seriously could not keep his food in his mouth
and he spit when he talked. Second, he could not stop checking his
phone every two seconds. I was like, am I boring you that much? He
didnt even apologize, just said he was getting play by play updates
on the football game he was missing. Third, he kept talking soo loudly
and with these crazy hand motions that evryone around us was staring.
I have never been so embarrassed to be seen with anyone before.

I went out with this gorgeous guy from work. At least I had something
pretty to look at all night because I have never met someone so dull
in my life! For the first hour, he told me about his Star Wars
collectables. Then, when I confessed I had never seen the movies, he
went on and on about every last detail in each of the films. To make
it worse, he was so distraught that I couldn't picture his description
of a big furry talking animal, Chewy something, that he decided to
cancel our dinner reservations and take me back to his apartment for a
Star Wars marathon. He was so into it, I don't think he even realized
when I said I had to use the bathroom and went home instead.

I kind of have a thing for foreigners, so when this French guy on the
dating site I'm on asked me out, I was so excited. We meet at a cafe
and as soon as I start to talk… I realize this guy does not speak
English. Through google translate, I find out he moved to America a
few months ago and his friend had set him up on the dating site,
telling him he should find an American to date so he can learn some
English. I guess it was slightly entertaining, but after one too many
awkward silences and stares, I motioned that I really had to go. So
happy that's over…

I was in my early 20's when one of the clients I saw regularly wanted to set me up with someone she knew - that she thought would be perfect for me. I really know what to do - didn't want to hurt her feelings if it didn't work, so at first I just declined politely. A few months later she brought it up again as she was hosing a dinner party and asked me to be one of her guests - and basically she said he would be there too and we will just see how it goes. The night before the dinner party I had gone out with a few ladies for after work cocktails and venting about the week. There were 2 guys trying to "pick up" me and one of the other girls. We said we were just having a girls night and "thanks, but no thanks". They seemed pretty harmless, but continued to attempt at a few lame pick up ... [+]

I had been friends with Brad for 5 years. We shared the same beliefs, we had mutual friends, and he never seemed creepy or weird.
He asked me out the day after my birthday, and since I had had a small interest in him for a couple of months, I happily accepted. He asked me what I wanted to do and I had him pick--I trusted his style.
So we go to a Mexican restaurant, which I loved. The food was absolutely insane and he kept me laughing throughout the entire meal.
We hung out, just talking about stuff, and then he finally brought me home. He leaned in for a kiss, I leaned in for a kiss and then suddenly...he burped. As he was kissing me. At the same time, I heard an explosive sound coming from his other end. I jerked back from the kiss and he looked at me like "What?" I said "Great ... [+]
