The worst first date in history


Wowee! You think you've had some bad first dates? How about this one?

The Sun Sentinel reports on the story of Boca Raton, Florida resident, Jillian Martone, 35 and her date Efren Molina, 39. Martone and Molina went out for dinner and drinks, but instead of following up with the traditional movie, Martone who allegedly punched her date, threatened him with a knife and smashed his window with a rock. Molina eventually wrested the knife from Martone's hand and ejected her from his home. She was later found by police crying outside his apartment and is currently in jail with the bond set at $9,000.

But what was the cause of Martone's first-date rage? She reportedly asked Molina to be her boyfriend and he refused. The course of true love never did run smooth.
