The Worst Date Ever?

A lot of my friends have regaled me with their dating horror stories. A friend told me about a date his younger sister went on with a guy she'd just met who told her he wanted to surprise her by taking her for the best pasta in the city. The surprise ended up being that it was at a place called 'The Pasta Deli', a booth in the food court at West Edmonton Mall. My ex told me about a first date he went on with a girl he really liked, who asked to drive his car, and as he walked around the front to get into the passenger side, she put the car in gear and it jumped forward a foot, hitting him and tossing him into the ditch beside the road. She ended up driving his car alright, all the way to the hospital. The worst I was ever on was pretty tame, the guy kept putting his foot in his mouth whenever he tried to make conversation (he knew I had a dog, but not a cat, and said cat owners are always self involved morons) and then at the end, paid for only his portion of the meal without letting me know. The waitress chased us outside to get the rest paid, and then he had the nerve to make fun of me for "forgetting to pay" for my food. What about the rest of you? What was the worst date you were ever on?

My worst date was with an ex. We had gone out for a while and then lost contact for about 3 years. Well we found eachohter again and started seeing more of each other. Well on the one date in question I turned up to meet him and waited an hour, he then turned up. Blind drunk. I could not just let him make his own way home so I took him back to my place to sober up. He stayed the night in my bed with me...so I could make sure he was ok during the night. I woke up about 2am to find that he had wet the bed. I took the blanket off to wash it...it now stunk and then went and slept on the couch. I left him there soaking wet and without a blanket for the rest of the night. Next morning he was made to go very quickly and I did never see him again. I didn't even let him have a shower that morning either. Don't EVER wet my bed. lol

Great stories here! My worst date was at a Jr. High dance. The guy who asked me actually had his friend ask if I'd go with him. When we got there, he didn't talk to me the entire time. Finally, a different friend of his came up to me and said that David (my supposed date) wanted to know if I'd go behind the stage and make out with him! It was that very moment that I realized the truth about men! Thirty years later, not much has changed!

(chuckling) I think your ex's first date is very hysterical. Notably expressed the term people occasionally refer to as 'lady driver' lol (no offence) Although i have to acknowledge some runty lunatics deliberately take measures to snuff out their dates 'for fun' lol nontheless, good luck to all the rest of us who has not been through such a date YET

A guy who invited me to a Valentines Fair. Bought the ticket for me. Then, minutes before the date, he texted that he would be late. He was late indeed. Drunk. And with his officemates. In his orange t-shirt and rough behavior. He is a lawyer, I expected him to be "sane" that night. I dumped him that night. And I didnt finished the fair.

Horse teeth - horse teeth
I went on a lot of bad dates and they were always blind dates. One of them that I remember well was with a guy my girlfriend sat me up with. He was really nice looking and had a build that wouldnt quit. But he had false teeth and kept dropping them and clacking them and that made me sick. We went on a roller coaster and I was hoping they would fly out of his mouth. No matter how good looking he was I couldnt get past the false teeth and his clacking them together constantly. I never went out with him again.

I went out with a customer from work many years ago. John was a truly wonderful guy- and still is. We'd been out to dinner a few times, and then one night he wanted to go to a club. No problem. We get to a club, where he introduced me to his "partner"... little did I know, we were just friends, and he had a boyfriend, not me lol Second worst... When I first got together with my now-ex boyfriend, we went to a fairly fancy resturaunt, and he ordered, then the waitress said "and what would your daughter like?"... he said "well I don't know, my daughter isn't here tonight".... He was older than I, but we did finally get used to that and were able to laugh at it. We were together for about 9 years, so that happened a lot lol

Oh my god..I have a good story for this here goes: I met this really cute guy one day when I was shopping so we exchanged numbers and we talked on the phone acouple times so he asked me out on a date and I said yes. Okay so we met each other at the movies and it was awful..he was acting like I was "HIS" property, he ordered what drink he thought I would like and what "he" thought I wanted to eat, he kept gettin mad if any guys even looked at me and I saw one of my guy friends from high school there and when I said hi to him my date tried to pull me away to go into see the movie..as soon as he did that I knew I had to get rid of him So after the movie was done the mall was right next to the theater..I said I wanted to buy something from there so we went in the mall and MY WHOLE PLAN WAS TO LOOSE HIM IN THE MALL AND THEN GO HOME!! So I was looking for my way out and he wasnt letting me out of his sight so finally I said can you get me a soda from one of the stands and he said yes (THANK GOD) and when he did..I RAN AWAY!!! I was soo happy because I could get to my car and get the heck away from that PSYCHO and by now I had been away from him for like 15 minutes when a security guard comes up to me saying "MY BOYFRIEND IS LOOKING FOR ME" I almost passed out when she told me that! I said hes not my boyfriend hes crazy and I left so fast out of the mall...I NEVER talked to him again!

I liked the guy whom you date, as he just paid only for hisr portion. Most of the girls wait for th boys to pay. And our idiots, they come forward to pay taking it as a matter of prestige. Why dont they allow girls to pay? May be i think girls have to pay for the biys on their dates as all these days they have been enjoying with boy's money

I have to disagree. If a man asks you out, they should pay. He was also a complete jerk because he didn't let me know he'd only paid for his portion of the meal, just paid on his way to the washroom and then asked if I was ready to go. When we left, he also didn't mention that he'd only paid for his portion of the meal, he just assumed I'd know. It's not only common courtesy, but it's also the primary difference between the sexes. Women are inclined to nurture, while men are inclined to provide for.

Breepeace, sorry to hear that your date was such a cheapskate. What a jerk! I had one date where I thought the guy was picking me up because he kept asking me about my house. When he didn't show after 20 minutes I called him and said he thought we were meeting at the restaurant, then when I got there he said he wasn't hungry and just had an appetizer while I ordered a meal. Since that wasn't bad enough, I also had to pay for my meal when we left. And all he kept talking about were things that had happened during our childhood and no longer mattered.
