But luckily, he asked if I wanted to get a drink afterward, and I happily obliged. We closed down the bar, and I was beaming when I got home. After our second date, he said he would like to see me again but never made plans. So I took the reigns and asked him out. We decided to go for bottomless brunch.
Long story short, we got wasted on a Sunday morning and spent the whole day walking around town. We just got back from a trip to the West Coast and celebrated our first anniversary! Just this time last year, I was waiting for him to turn into a fuckboy, and he has proved me wrong every time. He turned me into a mushy cuddle monster, and I can't imagine there ever was a time he was not in my life. He then asked me to "play Animal Crossing while I gag on his huge schlong.
A couple of years ago, when Tinder was pretty new in LA, my guy friend told me about this great new dating app. I told him I would check it out. I met my boyfriend within the first week of using Tinder. We have been together for two and half years, and we discuss marriage and our wedding plans all the time. People never believe we met on Tinder, but yes we did! I agreed, and then he ends up showing up at p. Once he got there, he explained that he was late because he had to pick up his dry cleaning.
He also informed me that I had 25 minutes to introduce myself, since he had to leave at 1 p. for a workout session with his trainer. He left at exactly 1 p. He also left me with the bill one of the worst dates of my life! He would drive out to see me at least twice a week I didn't have my license at the time in snowstorms that extended the drive time to an hour or two on really bad days.
Our first and second date was coffee at Tim Hortons. Our third date was a really horrible movie that we saw in theater and were legitimately the only people there; we made fun of it together the entire time. Now we're engaged, have an apartment together, and a cat. He's the most incredible person in the entire world, and I couldn't imagine life without him. So I agreed, and he picked me up, parked his car, and started walking.
We got halfway around the pond when his phone rings. It's a chick , and I could hear her on the other end saying, 'Are you at the park? I'm parked next to your jeep. We need to talk. I had to walk back to campus alone at night never talked to him after that. He sent me, 'Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm not a poet, is this a haiku? He didn't know I knew who he was, so it was kind of hilarious. I asked him if he knew my friend, just to be certain, and he said yeah, he did! She had told me that he was so shy and that she barely knew him because he's her boyfriend's friend, but that he was really sweet and would be perfect for me we both don't love partying very much; we are both the stay and talk to one person all night types of people.
He surprisingly asked me on a date the second day we talked on Tinder, but I couldn't go on the day he'd asked for. I made a point to tell him that I wasn't making an excuse, and we should plan for a different day. We went to a place called Across the Board Game Cafe for our first date, which is like a little café with full bookshelves of board and card games to choose from.
It was perfect because we got to chat lots, but if anything felt awkward or we didn't know what to say, we could focus on the game. Fast-forward to now, and he is the best man I know. I have been battling pretty bad depression this year, and he is always there for me. He understands that sometimes I get mad about stupid things, and when I apologize for it, he will always say to me, 'You don't need to be sorry.
You're just having one of those days, and that's OK. I love you. A couple of weeks later, we had gone on four dates, and he knew where I lived. That's when it started getting weird.
He wouldn't return my phone calls, so after a week, I stopped trying. Not long after, I glanced out the window of my house and saw him parked a couple of houses down with another person in the car. I waited to see what he would do, and he drove off an hour later. A couple of days later, he was back, except parked in a different location. I started to get freaked out.
There was also a second person in the car that time. They left two hours later. The third time I saw his car outside, I was poised to call the cops. I didn't get a chance because there was a knock on the door. I opened it to a very pregnant girl on my front steps. She began to rant, saying, 'How could I date a guy with a girlfriend?! Did I not have any morals? Who did I think I was, trying to steal her man? I let her go on for a while before I interrupted her, told her I had no idea, and why she was mad at me; I wasn't the one cheating on her.
I found out that she forced him to drive to my house and sit outside nine different times. She wanted to see what I looked like and have him confront me and break it off, but he wouldn't go up to my door.
I wish them all the best. He had one very blurry photo, so I had no clue what he looked like until we met. Our first date and we both agree on this was HORRIBLE. I was the most awkward person in the world and acting super shy.
I barely said a word for the first three hours. We planned just to be casual, and we did for the first couple of dates, but on the third date, I think we both realized we really liked each other. I went away on a cruise for three weeks. That was the weekend I knew I was falling in love with him. About a month later, we said our first 'I love yous.
There is no doubt in my mind he is the one I want to be with for the rest of my life. I didn't reply and unmatched him.
About two weeks later, I matched with another guy, who turned out to be the same person as before, just on a different account. His opening line was, 'Still waiting on those feet pictures ;. The only thing he sent me was 'I added you on Snapchat. Anytime you'd ask if we were dating, he'd say, 'Basically. Christmas Eve of , he asked me to be his girlfriend with a cute scavenger hunt around our apartment.
Two years later, we moved across the country together, have a dog, and have started shopping for rings. I really feel like he's my best friend. He was so sweet, and I really enjoyed talking to him.
We had a lot in common, and I was really looking forward to meeting him. We had this whole plan to go on a drive and then to dinner for our first date. When the day came, 30 minutes before we were supposed to meet up, he blocked me on every form of social media, unmatched me on Tinder, blocked my number, etc. I still don't know what happened to this day. What an asshole. On the day of, he shows up late, then says he can't find me after walking by me twice.
He finally sits down, and as we order drinks, he starts up a flirtatious conversation with the waitress. Halfway through the first drink, he announces he doesn't think we have any "chemistry" and thinks he should go. I chug the rest of my drink and tell him good luck with the waitress. He smirks and says that he thinks he has a shot with her. We had a really basic conversation for the next 15 minutes or so and then agreed to meet up for a drink a couple of nights later.
We didn't speak to each other between this period of time other than when he checked we were still good, and we agreed on the logistics of where we were meeting, etc.
I wasn't expecting much from our first date since I've been on a couple of uninspiring Tinder dates so far that month. There was barely any awkwardness at all, and we just seemed to chat the night away. It went really well!
To my surprise, he texted me the next morning, saying he had a great night and wanted to hang out in a couple of days. We went to a bar that was coincidently both of our local fave bars that play amazing music for our second date.
We couldn't stop laughing and talking the whole night, and I knew I fancied him so much at this point. I stood up to tell him a funny story, and he pulls me in by my waist, and we start making out. I was amazing, and when we pulled away, I said, 'Wait, so does that mean that you fancy me then? obviously yeah! As we are getting ready to leave, we had only met for happy hour; he says he will be expensing it to his company. That was the first red flag. I don't care if you do — just don't tell me!
Fast-forward a few weeks of not talking, and he drunkenly sends me a lovely unsolicited dick pic, which was horrible red flag number two. Finally, the ultimate 'I am blocking you on everything' red flag was that he proceeds to text me a photo of a random naked girl BOY, BYE!!!
Buzz · Posted on Jul 15, by Salimah McCullough BuzzFeed Staff. So the next time you go on a seriously awful date you'll know that you're not alone. We're right here with you. Every day he charted his height, weight, what he ate that day, what he weighed, what he read, watched, who he talked to, etc.
When I found him on Facebook later that night—after we hooked up—I realized he was cheating on his girlfriend with me. Not OK! One of my matches, let's call him Alex, seemed nice and helpful—but I never actually met up with him in person.
A year later, I get a call from Alex, asking if he can travel cross-country to visit me, stay in my house, and meet my parents. Um, no? Which one is it?
I was mortified, so I blocked them—it was the first thing I could think to do. I was a few beers and a couple hours in when I decided to call it a night.
The guy judged me for yawning and put two more beers in front of me—then he guilt-tripped me for 'making him come out of his way to meet for such a short date.
That was his opening line. I'm sorry, but implying I'm a prostitute is going to get you nowhere. I thought that was super weird and didn't want to, but he kept asking so I finally told him.
Then he made a big deal about telling me his, which was 50 points higher. OK, cool, whatever. He also told me that he got a soccer scholarship at the school where I work, but decided to go to a different college.
The next day I looked up his name in our database. DENIED with an SAT score waaaaay below what he'd told me! We were sitting at a table in the dining room, and I noticed a bunch of people perched around the bar, watching us. I was working at a research center for war and genocide at the time, and I guess enough people at the office thought I'd be super depressing, so they made an office pool, March Madness-style. I found out about it because I made some sort of inappropriate joke, and he followed up his laugh with, 'You're about to lose a bunch of people in my office a bunch of money.
I went into the bathroom, called my roommate, and had her come get me. Haven't online-dated since. Before telling me—during sex—that he had a girlfriend. And then when I kicked him out, he asked me for my Wi-Fi password so he could get an Uber.
Anyone who has ever used a dating app should know that the odds of actually having a good date are fairly slim. In fact, being on a dating app for a long time more or less guarantees that, at some point, you will have a truly awful date.
Or, in some cases, a truly horrifying date. In a recent Reddit thread, people shared their dating horror stories. And although none of them are bad enough to scare you off from dating for life, they'll make you thankful for all of the good dates you've been on. He was like, 'it feels really warm in my underwear for some reason. He ran into the bathroom and said he'd be free balling the rest of the night.
It was like pulling teeth to talk with him. I try to talk about travel — 'I don't see why anyone would ever want to leave the US. So I tell him about how my brother just purchased an Aston Martin. I really only like Camaros. but really, all I said was that I drove a Camaro from age Then, to top in off, he starts talking about No Fap and how he tried that but it just made him angry, so he followed strict ' masturbate once every three days' policy.
He said it gave him sizeable loads without affecting his mood. I jokingly ask if he masturbated today. He says yes. I ask if he washed his hands. He hesitates. I smile and say bye, leaving his hand hanging out there. By the time I get home, he has deleted me from Tinder. I had to wake this kid up at noon and be like OK, I have to get ready for work, you need to leave.
So he started to get dressed and couldn't find one sock. HE ACCUSED ME OF STEALING IT. He searched through all my drawers and dumped out my dirty clothes hamper looking for it. I ended up finding it weeks later in my sock drawer. I kind of think he planted it there, but I'm not sure why. So he finally starts to leave and HIS CAR GOT TOWED because he parked exactly where I told him not to. Looking back now I would've told him tough s, got him an Uber and went to work.
But I took him to the car tow place so he could get it back. And of course he doesn't have his wallet. So I had to pay for it, and sign for it because he doesn't have an ID on him. BUT the car tow place DOESN'T TAKE CARDS so we had to go find an ATM to get cash. So he finally gets his car, I'm already like 30 minutes late to work, and he goes, 'Okay I'll call you later' and I just said 'Never talk to me again. He texted a few hours later and said he lost the stylus for his phone.
I blocked his number. Second date, he drove and then drank a LOT, seemingly on purpose so he wouldn't be able to drive home. I agreed, and he spent the whole night crying in my bed about how I was going to leave him.
I broke it off, he then looked up a performance I was in later that year in college and showed up. When the show ended, he waited around to say hi like friends and family do and then interrupted me while I greeted people to say 'SO THAT'S WHY YOU'VE BEEN SO BUSY' and then stormed out.
He drove 35 minutes, and sat through a minute play, for that. Place was filled with empty beer cans. Four, I kid you not, four rusty, hair-filled razors in the shower all were his — he lived alone.
The sink was coated in hair and toothpaste. I was so disturbed. Then he told me he had a suspended license and a kid he never met, and I high-tailed it home. He comments on me ordering pizza in an Italian restaurant. I don't often eat meat, only veggie thing was pizza. He comments on me eating pizza with knife and fork. He comments on me not wearing enough make-up only mascara, even though I wore zero make-up in profile pics. I politely ask about his work. He explains what he does as if he's talking to a 4 year old, even though he knows I'm doing two master degrees and did Biology at my finals.
Throughout the date [he] kept explaining stuff to me as if I'm in kindergarten. Doesn't ask anything about me but long monologues about himself. I decline getting another drink and leave. Dodge his kiss and give him a peck on the cheek instead. On my way home I get a text asking if I'm sure I don't want a kiss. It was a 12 minute-long video about his MLM [multi-level marketing] vacation club that was 'totally not a pyramid scheme.
Then he proceeded to explain why he was right about this and why it's not offensive when I told him that I did not appreciate his statement. Then he told me about his years of psychological and physical abuse by his father, eventually culminating in him being stabbed by his father. He also suggested I listen to a couple of his favorite podcasts by a Trump-supporting, feminist-hating misogynist.
On the way home I gave him a ride because it was cold out and I'm apparently a bleeding heart he asked me if I would go on a hour road trip that weekend with him which would have been our second date by the way. Hard no. were you on the date we just had? When I stopped seeing him due to his clinginess and political leanings , his friends at work were apparently upset with my decision and one of them began to spread rumors that I'm sleeping with all my male friends. One of those friends has a long-term girlfriend, and she caught wind of these rumors.
It almost destroyed their relationship. We went to a bar for some drinks. We seem to be really hitting it off. Then her boyfriend turns up. It turns out he wants to have a MFF threesome and they had a Tinder account for her in order to find someone. When I got annoyed by this, they both suddenly got really aggressive and pissy.
They followed me out of the bar and tried to get into a taxi with me. He refused to take off his coat and awkwardly started swearing. He would ask me to come back to his place each time I finished a sip of my drink.
The next day I told him I wasn't interested in seeing him anymore, then he asked me for a refund of the drink I offered to pay for but he insisted on buying. Sign up here to get INSIDER's favorite stories straight to your inbox. Keep reading. HOMEPAGE 0. Sara Hendricks.
