First dates are stressful. Even if they go well, meeting a new person is inherently going to be difficult at first.
And while we all inevitably have a rotten date or two under our belts, some dates take it from bad to horrific. We've rounded up the craziest stories from various Reddit threads that will make you want to thank your lucky stars your last date was just a bad kisser.
"He says he is actually outside the pub we were at and he can see us."
"I've known this girl since school I'd always thought she was pretty but she's always had boyfriends and I'd hardly seen her in two years due to being at university, etc. Until two days ago when I saw her in the pub where we had a brief catch-up and I got her number.
"So texting her yesterday she suggests we go out for a drink later and I agree. We meet up and it was going great. Both enjoying ourselves conversation is flowing and she seemed into me. Her ex boyfriend had been texting her the whole time but, she had been ignoring it and we joked about it, nothing seemed too strange.
"But then as we move on to another pub while we had been enjoying a paper aeroplane throwing competition, he starts ringing her ... over and over and over. So she eventually answers and he's crying, drunk, and acting crazy and she's tell him to just leave her alone.
"We continue enjoying ourselves for a bit (all this time she is still being constantly bombarded by his texts) and then he starts ringing again. This time he says he is actually outside the pub we were at and he can see us. All he wants is to see her and then he will go home.
"So obviously she goes outside to speak with him and I'm just left sitting there contemplating just leaving. I got a look out him through the window and he's an absolute mess. To try and give you a idea of how bad I'm talking, like Joe Swanson-level crying ... proper broken man stuff, it was hard to watch.
"Then she comes back nearly in tears saying how she feels just terrible that she is the reason why he feels so bad. I try to ask her if she is OK and comfort her, but she just says she's fine and we end up just finishing our drinks and calling it a night so I walk her down to the taxi rank and give her a hug and see her off." - Redditor JDizzle69
"I couldn't believe that she'd react so rudely to something and then try to act as if it didn't happen."
"I decided to meet up for coffee with a girl that I had been talking to online. We talked for 45 minutes or so — normal first date topics like family, travel, etc. She then asks, 'Where did you do your undergrad?'
"Now, I have a pretty good job, but that question sets the bar pretty high for a guy who didn't go to college. She is not only assuming that I went to college but is also assuming that I am taking part in some type of post-graduate school.
"When I said that I went to technical school and then straight into the workforce she looked at me as if she'd never heard of such a thing. Apparently, I didn't pass all of her minimum requirements to be considered human. After a brief pause, she broke off her shocked stare, placed her hand on her forehead in a fashion that covered her eyes, inhaled briefly and followed it by a valley-girl, 'Eew!' She took her Blackberry out of her purse and whispered to herself as she typed, 'he ... didn't ... even ... go ... to ... college ...' I then saw the left thumb hold the shift key as she deliberately pressed the exclamation point key once ... ! Twice ... !! Three times ... !!! In reality, each one of those keystrokes was a simple tapping of a small piece of plastic, but, in my head, it sounded like a metal bank vault door was repeatedly slamming shut.
"She pressed a few more buttons on the phone, presumably sending this text message to her total BFF. She put the phone away, looked at me, and after taking a deep breath said, 'Well that is okay. Not everybody is capable of going to college.' She put on a fake smile followed by an awkward laugh and just stared at me awkwardly. I couldn't believe that she'd react so rudely to something and then try to act as if it didn't happen. Perhaps she still believed that, like a child playing hide and seek, if you covered your eyes you would disappear.
"After staring at each other awkwardly for a few seconds, I finally broke the silence by saying, 'Wow, okay. So, yeah... I, um guess it is about time to get out of here?' I stood up and took my trash to the trash can and she followed me out the door. I turned and began walking down the street and she followed closely and said, 'How far away is your car?' This girl was expecting a ride!
"So, I stopped and turned around and said, 'Oh, I am about a block this way. Where did you park? She replied, 'Oh, I took the bus here. I don't have a drivers license.'
"Now, I am normally not a rude person. Even in that situation, I was going to just walk away and let that be that, but I just couldn't pass this opportunity up. I looked at her right in the eyes and said, 'Eew!' Pulled out my cellphone and typed, 'she ... doesn't ... even ... have ... a ... license ... ! ... !! ... !!!' I then put my phone away, looked up at her, smiled and said, 'That's okay! Not everybody is capable of driving a car! Lucky for you, the bus stop is right over there. I hope you don't have to wait too long!'
"I wish I took a picture of the look on her face as I walked away. It was priceless." - Redditor kid320
"We fit perfectly together, even in the heavens."
"I slept with a guy on our first date, he was on top. At first I thought he was sweating, no big deal, I'm a trooper. Then I looked up, after a weird muffled sob, and he was crying. As I stared up into his tear filled eyes, in horror, he stated, 'Oh my god, I'm in love with you.'
"At this point, I stated loudly, 'I have to go. My mom is calling.' Rolled him off of me, grabbed my stuff, and got dressed while walking out of his house. He called after me, sobbing in the doorway. I turned, halfway down the driveway, still pulling a shirt on over my head.
"'Our signs are compatible! We fit perfectly together, even in the heavens.'
"Even in the heavens, guys." - anonymous Redditor
"I didn't know what to do, so I laughed awkwardly."
"I was going on my first date with someone I had met online. We had been talking a bit for about two weeks before we met. We went to dinner on our date, he wasn't super talkative and it was mildly awkward. Then when he was dropping me off, I gave him a hug good night and he takes this opportunity to whisper in my ear, 'I love you.' I didn't know what to do, so I laughed awkwardly, assuming he was joking.
"He wasn't." - Redditor amymariebe
"She says she wants to drop into this shoe store real quick."
"A guy I work with had an awkward one. He's recently divorced and this was his first date since the split. After dinner they decided they were going to walk around the city. She says she wants to drop into this shoe store real quick.
"The woman then proceeds to try on shoes for 45 minutes, and then my friend just decided 'I guess this is is my cue to leave.' Says his goodbyes as the woman continues trying on shoes, completely unfazed." - Redditor VisitChechnya
"One of the birds was in the way of the ball. It was a direct hit to the neck and the bird went down for good."
"Met a girl in a college class and noticed she was looking at golf clubs on eBay. Being a golfer myself, I figured it was a perfect conversation starter and went with it. After an exchange of numbers and some conversation we had a golf date at a local country club for the next afternoon.
"So the first few holes went well but then the 7th hole happens. I'm about 230 yards from the green so I pull out my 3W. I see the pair of sandhill cranes they were about 150 yards down the fairway so I paid them no attention. I take my swing and to my surprise, the ball was a low line drive that got no more than a few feet of the ground. And to my surprise, one of the birds was in the way of the ball. It was a direct hit to the neck and the bird went down for good.
"Sandhill cranes mate for life so if one of them dies the other will sit there for hours crying for the other one. It was sad, but little did I know she loved these birds and the look on her face was horrific. She broke down in tears. We played the last two holes with maybe exchanging 10 words. Didn't hear from her again." - Redditor rektt
"While we're eating crappy food court food, he calls two other girls."
"We had gone to high school together, so I vaguely knew of him. This was about two years after graduation, so we're at different colleges. We had Facebooked a little, and I agreed to a date for when I was home for the holidays. He suggested dinner and ice skating. Sounds romantic, right?
"He picked me up from home and drove to a mall fairly far away. I was slightly confused, but willing to see where this was going. He told me to pick any restaurant in the food court, his treat. OK, I'm a broke college kid too, so whatever.
"While we're eating crappy food court food, he calls two other girls. Chats and flirts with them literally right in front of me. Now I'm just pissed and want to go home. Told him this. He convinced me that we should at least ice skate, he already bought the tickets, yadda yadda. I'm pretty far from home and don't know anyone in the area, so I agree to go with.
"We go to this ice skating rink, and he starts telling me his life ambition of owning such a rink and how wonderful it would be if we co-signed for this very ice rink and how profitable and successful we would be, it's really just a good business decision, we're already in love and everything, yadda yadda. Now I really just want to go home, but I have no way out.
"We skate, whatever, thank god we got there late, so we were only out there for about 30 minutes (btw, he's a sh---- skater). On the drive home, he mentions that his grandfather lives nearby and it's a special day for him, would I mind if we stopped? At this point, this date can't get any worse, so I say sure, why the f--- not.
"We pull into a cemetery. You read that correctly. A where-the-dead-people-stay cemetery. It's about 11 p.m. I'm now terrified out of my mind, frantically texting my parent where I am and what they should do if they don't hear from me soon. He pulls up to a tombstone and asks if I'd like to meet his grandpa. I politely decline. He goes out there and sits for a few minutes.
"He returns to the car and we drive back to my house. He tried to go in for the kiss, but I was literally saved by the dog. I rush inside and lock the door and tell my now-panicked parents the story.
"Later, when I told him I wasn't interested, he said this verbatim, 'Fine, you were weird anyway.'" - Redditor uhkndms
"He called all the theaters in the area and gave them my description from pictures he found online of me. "
"I met a nice girl [who] said she was new in town. After talking for a few days over IM and email, I offered to take her out to a movie. We hang out and chat for awhile before, nothing odd. About halfway through the movie, my phone starts going off (vibrate), I check the number, don't recognize it. So I ignore it. It doesn't stop going off for 10 solid minutes. So I excuse myself to take the call, thinking it must be important.
"'GIVE THE PHONE TO ERICA M***********.'
"'Excuse me? Who are you?'
"'I'M JESUS F------ CHRIST AND I WILL END YOUR S--- IF YOU DON'T GIVE HER THE PHONE.'
"'Seriously, who are you?'
"BUNCH OF LOUD CURSING THAT I DON'T REMEMBER.
"So I decided then to see if this girl knew who the hell was on the phone. I go back and get her from the theater. I hand her the phone and she gets really quiet and takes a few steps away just looking at the floor and saying "mhmm, mhmm." After a few minutes, she hangs up and tells me she has to go. I'm actually pretty amused by the whole thing, say goodbye, and finish the movie.
"The next day I get an email with an apology, and the request to go out again. She explains that it was her ex-boyfriend from a few states away, and that he didn't take the break up and move well. And I guess he went through all her emails, got my number, and found out we were seeing a movie together.
"He called all the theaters in the area and gave them my description from pictures he found online of me. He told them I had a gun. Either he didn't call the one we were at, or they didn't take him seriously. I replied to her saying that I don't know if we can go out again, if this guy is going to do stuff like this. I mean, she needs to either make him back off, or call the cops. I get a reply email, not from her, but from him. He was intercepting her email. Basically the same 'BACK OFF, SHE'S MINE!' b-------. So I called her, told her she needs to get this guy out of her life if she wants to date people. She didn't think it was that bad, so I told her that I wasn't comfortable going out again." - Redditor icannevertell
"First thing I disliked is she wanted to sit in the front freaking row of the movie theater."
"The only time I went on a date with a girl I met on the Internet was a fantastic failure.
"As I imagine in most cases, when I saw her in person, she wasn't as attractive as her pics let on. No biggie, she was still cute and I hope I am not that shallow. However ...
"First thing I disliked is she wanted to sit in the front freaking row of the movie theater. Still, I decided, people have dealt with much worse. But then it got absolutely fantastic — a friend of hers shows up, and these two are pointing, laughing, and screaming their heads off and calling random characters 'gay' and whatnot.
"At this point I had decided my time had come, excused myself to the bathroom, and went home to play some Counter-Strike." - Redditor Krypty
"After we smooched I looked at her and said, 'I love you.'"
"First date I ever went on was when I got my first kiss. After we smooched, I looked at her and said, 'I love you.' After that we just stood there for 30 seconds and then I just said good night and left in the most awkward way possible.
"The next day I explained that my response was a 'heat of the moment' kind of deal; and things were fine after that. I was 15 at the time. I still look back on it and think to myself yahtz33 what the hell were you thinking?!" - Redditor yahtz33
"My date just stared at me like a surprised owl."
"For this date, I suggested we go to a local restaurant that I frequented. The manager and staff knew me, and they knew it was a blind date.
"A few minutes after the waitress got our drink orders, she came back out to our table.
"With a pained and serious look on her face, she said 'The manager wanted me to tell you that you left your prescription for [Insert Name of Gonorrhea Medicine] here last night. Want me to go get it for you?'
"It took me a second to realize what the manager, my friend, was doing and I was shocked —because I didn't have that problem or a prescription for it.
"My date just stared at me like a surprised owl.
"I finally was able to pick my jaw up off the floor — just as the manager came out of the kitchen, laughing his a-- off. The waitress apologized profusely, saying that he told her if she didn't play along, she'd get fired." - Redditor happenstanced
"We ended up eating at IHOP, all the while he's still complaining about how terrible that date is."
"I went on a date where the boy planned to take me to some small fancy restaurant. I hadn't seen him in a while, we met at a friend's party, but we had been texting for a few weeks and he seemed awesome.
"He picks me up, spends the entire time driving to the restaurant complaining about his day. We get to the restaurant too late and its closed, so he complains about that. His friend calls him while we're looking for a new place, he answers and complains about how this date is so bad. We ended up eating at IHOP, all the while he's still complaining about how terrible that date is.
"Now I know he meant it was terrible in that we didn't get to go to the other restaurant and ended up at IHOP, but in my opinion a date is good or bad based on if you have fun with the other person, so I took it personally. At the end of the night he drops me off and tells me he had a great time even though it was a terrible date and he would like to see me again. Didn't happen. Maybe if he hadn't whined the whole time I could have had fun too." - Redditor Blue_no_Yellow
"Darren looked at her, patted her on the head, and said 'Okay goodnight.'"
"Went on a double date. I was with my girlfriend at the time, she brought a friend, Sarah, and I brought my friend Darren. Sarah was super into Darren. Darren was super not into Sarah.
"At the end of the date we were all saying goodnight and Sarah kept throwing hints she wanted to go with Darren. Darren looked at her, patted her on the head, and said 'Okay goodnight.'" - Redditor littlerunnerboy
"I went to catch her, and promptly whacked her in the face with my head."
"Went out with a girl in high school and did the usual, movie and a dinner. It had been going great up until dinner, when she stumbled over a curb. I went to catch her, and promptly whacked her in the face with my head. This actually broke her nose, which lead to me panicking and trying to fix it. Of course that was a bad idea, and I think I made her nose bleed more to be honest.
"Thankfully she wasn't upset at me (I spent a good half hour freaking out over it), but there was a very awkward and at one point terrifying conversation with her dad when I brought her home. He was a former marine who served in Vietnam and did the usual 'scare the bejesus out of the daughter's date' by coming out sharpening his kabar knife when I picked her up, needless to say he really didn't like or trust me after that.
"The girl and I dated for a year and we're actually still pretty good friends. So I guess it worked out OK in the end." - Redditor grindyoursoul
"Got up, said I was going to the bathroom, paid for my one beer and left."
"Went on a blind date with a friend of a friend and the first thing out of her mouth was 'Well Sarah wasn't kidding when she said you weren't tall' (Spoiler alert: I am fairly short). 5 minutes in, told me she didn't really see it going anywhere, but proceeded to order a Grey Goose martini and a $30 appetizer for herself.
"Got up, said I was going to the bathroom, paid for my one beer, and left. Felt great." - Redditor ryancm8
"I thought I was talking to my friend with the same name as my date."
"Immediately after the date, I spent 20 minutes complaining via WhatsApp about how bad the date was. I thought I was talking to my friend with the same name as my date. It was my date and not my friend.
"I felt s--- about it for weeks." - Redditor ElPelirrojo
"I spent the next 20 minutes trying to bump-start my bike, awkwardly saying 'I swear I'm not a serial killer.'"
"Met my current girlfriend on Tinder. We had been talking for about 2-3 weeks before we decided to meet up. Agreed that we would take my motorcycle out for a ride.
"Took her on a ride to a park about ~20 minutes away (and pretty much in the middle of nowhere). We got off the bike, sat at a picnic table, and just talked for about an hour. We get up to leave, and I realize I left the lights on ... the whole time. I'm like 'S---, this battery is going to be toast ...' It was.
"I spent the next 20 minutes trying to bump-start my bike, awkwardly saying 'I swear I'm not a serial killer.' How I ended up with her is beyond me." - Redditor facetrolled
"Walk in the front door and immediately I am face to face with the guy who screwed my wife."
"About two years ago I divorced my wife after she cheated with a guy she met at my mother's funeral. Six months after the divorce I'm on my first date with a girl named Heidi. She wanted to stop by a local tavern that was hosting a charity benefit. We did ... worst decision ever. Walk in the front door and immediately I am face to face with the guy who screwed my wife.
"He and I grew up as friends but lost touch until he came to mom's funeral. He attempted to say something to me and I immediately cut him off and threatened him rather harshly. He left.
"Spent the next 30 minutes explaining what just happened to her. She said I should have punched him." - Redditor cbrown80
"We went out to eat and I forgot my wallet so she paid for me."
"So there was this really sweet girl my buddy had been interested in but was too afraid to ask out, so dawning my captain c--- block costume I swooped in and asked her on a date.
"We went out to eat and I forgot my wallet so she paid for me. Then went to a party at a mutual friend's house where I got black-out drunk and passed out and I was supposed to be the DD.
"My buddy was at the party and seeing my stupidity worked up the courage and asked her out ... they dated 3 years." - Redditor Broda_mane
"She just says, 'Haha ... no' and walks out."
"So I met this girl on the internet, and she seemed really nice and down-to-earth. We had a lot in common including our hobbies and politics and stuff like that, so I was thinking we might hit it off.
"We agree to meet up in person at a Kaladi Brothers coffee place. Now bear in mind that I'm not super attractive so up to this point she hasn't seen any pictures of me, instead we have pre-arranged recognition signals. She walks in the door and I spot her by her clothing instantly, and start waving. She gets this sort of uncertain look on her face and walks over and says 'Sam?' and when I say yes she just says, 'Haha ... no' and walks out.
"Feels bad." - Redditor samtravis
"The date looked shocked and ended up not being able to pay her bill."
"I get there, she's already eating appetizers (I'm 10 minutes early), then she orders the most expensive dinner on the menu, and tells me she did it because she knows I'm paying. Small talk fails and for 45 minutes she complains about how no one is refilling her wine glass (she kills the glass every 20 seconds).
"She mentions how she was told that I make a decent salary, multiple times. I try to be civil and change the subject. Awkward conversational topics ensue, nothing even close to first date etiquette follows. Three quarters of the way through I go to the bathroom and our waiter walks by, asks me if we are doing a reality show or something along those lines, since he has seen this disaster in motion.
"We talk about how wild this woman is for about five minutes and then I ask him to stop at our table and ask about the bill. I immediately say split checks and give him $80 (roughly 40 for my bill and 40 for his tip). The date looked shocked and ended up not being able to pay her bill, so the friend who hooked us up got a call and flipped the rest of her check. Her total came to be about $75." - anonymous Redditor
"I arrive in the kitchen to see her standing over my silverware drawer, emptying it into her purse."
"I brought a girl back to my house for dinner and a movie. I had previously made a 'bet' with her wherein if she won, I'd make her dinner and bake pie, but if I won she had to make out with me — either way, win-win, right?
"So we finish dinner and go back into my bedroom to watch a movie. Midway through the flick, she says, 'I'm still a bit hungry — I think I'll go grab a quick bite of the leftovers.' She gets up, and goes into the kitchen. I decide about 45 seconds later, as my stomach rumbles, that this sounds like a great idea.
"I arrive in the kitchen to see her standing over my silverware drawer, emptying it into her purse. I was shocked — I'd never had a date try to rob me before. I asked, 'What the hell are you doing?' Her reply, 'giggle Oopsie!' I'd have been pissed already, but the girly giggling BS answer just put me over the edge.
"I walked up, looked in her bag, and saw that she'd only managed to grab some of the crappier silverware so far. At that point, I reached over to the counter and grabbed a slice of the pie. I looked her in the eyes and said, 'Don't forget your desert.' Then, while holding her gaze, I dropped the pie into her purse and smashed it up as best I could with the sides of the purse to make sure it got in there nice and good.
"Kicked her out, never saw her again." - Redditor atonyatlaw
"I said sure, so I got up, and just walked out of the theater."
"One night in the 8th grade, I finally got the balls to ask this girl out. She so happen to be a friend of my best friend's current girlfriend, so we decided to make it a double date. During the movie everything was going as planned, I sat by her while my friend sat with his girlfriend. Then we see a couple of her b----- girlfriends walk into the theater, and who happen to see the girl I was with right away.
"She then motioned with her hand for her friends to come over here. When her friends got to where we were sitting, the girl I asked out turns to me and asked, 'Can you scoot down a seat so I can sit next to my friends?' I said sure, so I got up, and just walked out of the theater. And to add insult to injury, she stayed there, and her friends ate the popcorn I bought." - Redditor CubeMaster
"I was nervous and awkward, and it ended without much fanfare."
"When I was in high school, I went on a date with a friend of a friend. We went and saw a movie, then went out for dinner. I was nervous and awkward, and it ended without much fanfare. The date went OK, and there wasn't a second one, but that's not the bad part.
"About a month later, I went to a party at our mutual friend's house. And I saw her there, and was afraid it might be a little awkward. I had no idea. About an hour into the party, she came up and started talking to the mutual friend, while I was standing nearby. After a few minutes of talking, the girl I had gone on a less-than-awesome date with came up and introduced herself to me.
"On the bright side, at least it wasn't a memorable bad date ... for her." -Redditor Chucke4711
"[She said] 'My boyfriend will love this' while boxing up the 1.5 lobster tails she didn't eat."
"My husband went on a first date where he took her to a Hibachi restaurant. She ordered the twin lobster tails dinner and proceeded to tell him 'My boyfriend will love this' while boxing up the 1.5 lobster tails she didn't eat. They didn't go out again, needless to say." - Redditor HonestAbeRinkin
"When we came back my windshield was smashed and two of my tires were flat."
"This guy from work asked me out on a date after a few days of flirting with me out of nowhere (we worked together for like six months before he asked me out). I thought it was kind of odd that he was suddenly interested in me, but I agreed to go.
"I met him at his place and we took his car to dinner. When we came back, my windshield was smashed and two of my tires were flat. His response: 'Yeah sorry. I just got out of a bad relationship.'" - Redditor sharkanie
"She ended up puking in my brand new car."
"I asked a co-worker out for dinner. I took her out that night to a nice restaurant. We had a few drinks at the restaurant. She said she wasn't feeling well. Apparently she was on some medicine that made alcohol twice as powerful and she was a total lightweight. I offered to take her home, and she ended up puking in my brand new car.
"We ended up dating for over two years after that night." - Redditor Potato_Mug
"When the meal finally came I noticed she couldn't cut her own food."
"At 16 I had a first date on Valentine's Day. Being young and poor we went to an Applebee's where my date ordered off the kid's menu getting herself chicken fingers. Embarrassed by this, I did what I could to steer the conversation away and try to have a pleasant evening.
"When the meal finally came, I noticed she couldn't cut her own food. Noticing the look on my face my date got upset and in an annoyed tone said, 'I just learned how to do this last week OK!' After further conversation in the night where she claimed I couldn't have been in Pre-Calc in a public school because she was only in Algebra II in her private school I decided to pay the bill and leave." - Redditor artivan
"It turns out that she isn't just asleep, she is falling into a diabetic coma."
"Worst first date I've ever been on, I meet a girl I really like at the Starbucks she works at (which was conveniently near my house). We had plans to get dinner and see a movie, typical I know, but it was early so we were having some coffee and talking, getting to know one another, and I notice a woman in the corner who has fallen asleep in one of the big comfy chairs.
"As we're talking, the woman incoherently mumbles every once in a while, and slumps further and further into the chair.
"Finally, the girl I was with goes over there and tries to wake the lady up to check on her, and it turns out that she isn't just asleep, she is falling into a diabetic coma.
"Ambulances were called, and eventually the girl just told me to go home because she had to stay and make sure the lady didn't die." Redditor scubsurf
"He turns around suddenly and yells, 'You hurt my pride and you're using words I don't understand.'"
"We went for a romantic walk by the park. We saw a small raccoon. He screams like a prepubescent boy and it hisses at him as it calmly walks away from him. I comfort him, giggle, and call him silly-buns and in the middle of my explanation about city animals and how to deal with them, he turns around suddenly and yells, 'You hurt my pride and you're using words I don't understand to explain something I don't f------ care about. I'm gone.'
"Apparently I'm too knowledgeable?" - Redditor katrinagoeskaboom
"'I got hit by a car while I was crossing the street a few years ago."
"Took a girl out to dinner. During dinner, I notice a scar on her arm. I ask about it. 'I got hit by a car while I was crossing the street a few years ago.'
"Go for a walk after dinner to get some coffee across the street. By now, completely forgot about the got-hit-by-a-car story. Crosswalk light is about to turn red. I say 'We can make it' and we start rushing across the street. We almost get hit by a car.
"Yeah, no second date." - Redditor Piratiko
"Left a girl at the curb."
"Left a girl at the curb because she refused to open the car door for herself, and resorted to insults to express her indignation that I had not automatically done so for her.
"This was at her house so its not like I abandoned her, but she did have to walk back and explain to her parents why she was back early after I had just met them." - Redditor ItGotRidiculous
"She was getting ready to hug me goodbye, and my mind went blank and I just kind of poked her."
"I was on a date with this girl, we were hanging out at my house, watching a movie, having dinner, very casual. At the end of the night, I walk her outside and to her car in the driveway and we're just standing there. She says she had a good time and she'll come to have a drink with me on the weekend blah blah blah, that old song and dance.
"She was getting ready to hug me goodbye, and my mind went blank and I just kind of poked her. Yes, poked her, with my finger... on her side, like 'Heh, thanks for coming over ...' Her face was priceless. Then she said, 'OK ... welp, see ya.'
"Dumbest thing I've ever done." - Redditor Bad_assness
"I'm really not a fan of astrology, but I don't really care if someone likes it."
"I went on an OkCupid date, and while it was mostly fun, there was one thing that didn't go well. I'm really not a fan of astrology, but I don't really care if someone likes it. Anyway, this girl said she was good at guessing signs. I must admit, I was impressed when she got it right in only 10 guesses." - Redditor Fearlessleader85
