Prefacing this whole story with the hope I don't offend anyone.

This was wayyyyyy back in the 80s, when I was maybe 16. I met this guy through a friend of a friend, and for our first date he asks if I want to go to a concert. Sure! Love concerts! So we go to this old school building. And went inside to the auditorium and then wait for the concert. It ended up being a Born Again Christian concert. People were swaying with their hands up, screaming Thank You Jesus,....including my date. I was freaked out. Raised high Episcopalian where the services were in Latin, this was an occasion I had never found myself in.

We finally left, and I said I needed to get home. All the way back to my house he talked about how he was such a great, religious guy and basically said I would be lucky to have him. When we got back to my house, he literally jumped across the car and pinned me to the door with his hands and mouth everywhere. I got the door opened and fell out in the driveway screaming and my Dad came out. The guy squealed out of the driveway and I never saw him again.

The guy was so obnoxious and said something so awful to me, that I swore on the spot I'd just be better off alone if that was what it was going to be like dating in my 60's. Luckily, I did meet Mr. Wonderful and the rest is history.

Well long before internet dating in our town we had a company called Video dating. I had lost my husband and wanted get back in the dating scene ....I was 30 at the time and just didn't like the bar scene.

Anyway the people there told me to go out with this one guy, thought he was great I would like him. So we make a date to meet at Apple Bee's at 5:00. Ok he meets me we have a good time talking and laughing but he says to me your really funny and a nice girl but you could lose some weight. I was not that big at the time but anyway I should have left then but went to the lady's room and when I came back he had ordered food thougth ok...weird. He only ordered for himself Guess I was suppose to lose that weight now I guess. I did leave after that.

Second date different guy....

Someone at work set me up with a guy. She was having a party wanted me to come and meet him. Was ok at first but few hours later he was dancing , drunk with almost no clothes on ...I was out of there.

At this dating service another guy wanted to meet up and said no way but months went by and he tried again...went out with him and now am married to the greatest guy!

At 18, I accepted an invitation to go out from a guy in the neighborood we'd just moved to, that I met during a snowstorm when he was bundled up in a hood and parka. His had a handsome face and he seemed nice.

When date night arrived and he stood in my doorway, I was kind of shocked to see a disheveled guy with a long, scraggly ponytail down to his butt (this was the 80s, before nice ponytails came into fashion) and a beater car.

I didn't want to go, but I didn't know how to get out of it, so I went.

His driving was atrocious, speeding and taking corners on practically two wheels to the point that I was literally bouncing around in the seat. I asked him to slow down, but he wouldn't. Between that and the conversation, I realized he wasn't as "nice" as he'd portrayed himself to be, and frankly I got a little scared.

The "date" was at his friends house, where he and his friend proceeded to get wasted. I asked him to take me home before he got "too" wasted, as I had no idea where I even was. (And no cell phones back then.) He was mad and pretty jerky. I couldn't believe it, had never been out with anyone like this before. And if it was possible, the drive home was even worse than the ride there.

I thought the 'date" would never end. He called for a long time afterward, which was awkward, until I began dating someone else. No way would I have put myself in that situation again.

Boy some of these are really bad.

Makes the last "first" date I had before I met my current bf seem tame. He was the one who ate the entire appetizer we were "sharing" himself and then by the dinner course let me know that when he gets married again he's going to reuse his wedding ring from his first marriage that ended in divorce, cross out the inscription of his 1st wives name and change it to his 2nd wives name, because the ring was expensive. Check please!

My first date was arrested for smuggling illegal aliens across the border. Fun stuff!

My BFF met a guy and wanted to go out with him, but didn't want to go alone for the first date. She asked me to come along and the guy invited one of his friends along.

My "date" was okay. It wasn't a match, but he was okay to spend an evening with. We lived in Detroit and went over to Windsor for the evening. We stopped at a bar where my date knew the owner (cousin/uncle, can't remember). Anyway, my date disappeared into the back room with this guy for awhile. I thought it was a bit rude, but it wasn't like we were going to go out again.

On the trip over to Windsor, my GF and I rode together. On the trip back, her BF rode with her and I rode with my date. We get to the border and I could just tell they were going to harass us. It wasn't unusual to pull over 18 - 21 year olds and give them a hard time. I had my own car searched on more than one occasion. So, we are told to pull over and pop the trunk. Imagine my surprise when people are inside the trunk!

I had to do some quick explaining. After what seemed like a long time but was probably only minutes, they seemed to believe me that I wasn't involved. They arrested my date. I never saw him again but my BFF went on to marry her date. He apologized profusely and said he didn't have a clue that his "friend" was doing that. I still give him a hard time about it today!

First year in college...blind date from a dorm-mate.

Background, I am asian, very petite, and a shade under 5ft.

I meet up with my blind date he takes me to my first kegger and we both get a bit drunk but we are having great time. There was a live band, games, food....a perfect college party and we were all over each other. We get seperated for a little while and I eventually I start looking for him. Finally I call him and say where he is....He replied "About halfway home from your dorm"....and something about how cute I was, great first date, and a really good kisser.

Turns out he mistakenly walked ANOTHER asain girl home and didn't realize it...and made out with her! She didn't even look like me other than she is asian. She was about a foot taller, wore glasses, and had accent!
For the love of Disney...

Here's one that sticks out in my memory...

Met a guy at a bar. He had come up to me thinking I was one of his friend's girlfriends. I say I am not. He continues talking. We end up exchanging numbers.

Date was planned, he picked me up. The date was filled with super cheesy, trying way too hard type moves. I felt horrible but I was laughing so hard on the inside. Some people would love that stuff, me not so much.

Night goes on, find out he lied about his age (2x) by about 10 years (making him barely 21 if that). Also his pick up line was a lie too. Then when he walks me home, he proceeds to take his shoes off on my front steps. I say what the heck are you doing, he says, I'd have to give him a second date now just so he can get his shoes back. Then he goes off running barefoot into the night.

I give the guy credit for thinking outside the box and giving me a story to tell

I had quite a few bad dates, it's hard to pick one. I think if I had to choose one I'd go with the guy I went out with one time and his girlfriend (that I didn't know about) continued to stalk me for the next year.

Well she got a boyfriend that summer and decided to "set me up" with someone so we could double date. So I end up talking with this guy on the phone a couple times and arrange for him to meet my cousin, her BF, and me at my grandparents house then all carpool from there. Well my grandfather starts asking a million questions about this guy as he didn't like his granddaughters dating. He gets an odd look on his face just as the guy gets to the door. Grandad answers the door by saying " who is your daddy boy?" I was mortified !! The poor guy stutters out his dads name. Grandad turns around and says , I thought so! honey that boy is your cousin , his daddy is second cousins with your momma.
I turned beet red!! First, thanks cousin lol she had gone to school with this guy for years never knew they (and therefor him and I ) were related!! while a really awkward time thank goodness my grandfather put it all together!!! We all still went out that night but it was a very platonic night lol!!!
I use to date my un-cousin. And we would freak out our friends with the connections. Nobody believed that we weren't related somehow.

He was DJ Hoxxxx.
I was JD Hoxxxx.

We were both 5'5", dark brown hair, brown eyes, and both wore glasses.

His birthday is 6/24/67.
Mine birthday is 12/24/67.

And final piece that sent them all over the edge, we were both adopted, both from the same adoption agency.

My worst 1st date, I didn't even know I was on a date.

My BF had introduced me to a bunch of her friends when I stopped dating her boyfriends best friend. I got along with several of them during the multipule times we had all hung out together.

Back in the late 80's, Ft Wayne use to hold free concerts on Sunday nights during the summer. And it wasn't unusual for this group to meet there. So, one sunday, she calls and says the group is going and wanted to know if we - she and I - wanted to go. She couldn't go, but had told the guy who called to invite us, she would see if I wanted to since I had made solid friendships with several of them and it wouldn't be strange for me to be there with out her. I said yeah, because I liked the band that was going to be playing.

Well, instead of just meeting them downtown, the guy who had made the call, said to come out to his place and I could ride with him. Also, that group was going to be hanging out earlier during the day, playing some pool and doing a cook out. Sounding like a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon/evening.

By the time we got to the actual concert, it was becoming very clear that the guy who had made the call, thought that I was his date for the night. I didn't see it that way at all. This guy already knew that I really liked one of the other guys, my future DH to be exact, from that group of friends. By the end of the night, this guys feelings were extremely hurt by my refusal to sit on his lap, hold his hand, play kissie face with him, stay by his side - all day long.

And DH had his worst blind date ever, the same day.

To this day, we argue over who had the worst "date" that day. Him or me. Hands down he did, but I never admit that to him. I knew he was in for a bad night when his date wouldn't let him in the door when we went to pick her up, she sent him back to the car and only opened the door for her friend. And when her friend finally got her to come out to the van so we could go, she had her arms crossed in front of her, she had a ticked off look on her face, she stomped all the way out to the van, then made her friend sit with her in the very back of the van and DH sit up in the front with the driver, who's date was now sitting in the back of the van with the pouting blind date.

I went on a date with this guy to the movies, and he FELL ASLEEP!!! I was so mad. I was not thinking then but when I thought about it, I should have got up and left him sleep right there. I drove my car so it was there.

A few years ago I met a guy online and we decided to meet at a bar for a glass of wine. His WIFE dropped him off, and that's when I learned that "available" is different from "single." Nice guy, but kind of nuts. Obviously, it was our only date.

Can't think of anything too major that happened on a first date, but my favorite girlfriend story (actually I never considered her my GF). I realized she was psycho after a few dates and tried to blow her off. She asked me if I wanted to go to Universal studios and she would pay for it to basically keep me from blowing her off. Hmmmmmm well its kind of hard to turn down a free trip to Universal Don't get me wrong, I normally always pay for trips with GFs but this person I really didn't want anything to do with so that was the only reason I thought I would give her a chance and accept the supposed free vacation with her. But oh my was that a mistake.

She was the type that would seem perfectly normal for a day or a half day, then all of a sudden one little thing would set her off and she would just start screaming and going crazy. Probably biggest psycho I've ever "dated." Although this whole episode only lasted about a month, including the trip, so not sure that classifies as actual "dating".

So I was planning on going to Universal anyway either with friends or otherwise, so I accepted her "offer" (really con). So its like a week before the trip and she had not made ANY plans. I had already arranged to get off work and was wanting to go. So I ended up making all the plans and reservations with my card and she said she would pay me back. She had a lot of inherited money so at the time I was not worried about it.

Anyway long story short, first day we get there is fine, she seems normal, 2nd day she flips her lid, for no reason, runs off, steals the rental car, diappears. I did get the rental car back, I found out later she ended up taking a flight back by herself, but needless to say I never saw a dime
Its kind of hard to remember all the psycho things she did but there were many, hard to describe, mainly the yelling and screaming for no real reason. I ended up doing the whole trip by myself after she left which was fine, although vacations by yourself aren't the greatest and can be very lonely.

After I got back she later tried to black mail me by writing a red marker on a pregnancy test to fake being pregnant. It was obviously a lie for several reasons and my friend figured out what she had done because he and his wife had just used those tests and knew it was faked by the color, then he rubbed it and you could easily tell it was a red marker. I also later found out she was a major meth head, which I had suspected but had no proof, which also explained some of her behiavor in hindsight I think.

I heard a few years later she ended up getting busted for meth and passing counterfeit money, she had also tried to run over another boyfriend of hers with her car. By looking at her, and her nice house and car, and how she dressed etc etc., you would have never known this girl was this gone, but oh my was she a piece of work. I think it was a combination of being a spoiled rich brat, meth, and just psycho on top of everything else.

OH MAN!! Each one of these has me

I don't have any that are bad enough to make it to this thread! Lol

A friend of mine, is a very pretty girl, a very sweet and caring lady. However, when it comes to men, she's a looney tune. She becomes a clingy, crazy nutcase. I will never understand her thought process with men. She is night and day with friends vs. love interests. I love her dearly, but I tell me guy friends to run far far away from her.

One night, she met this guy at a bar. Upon leaving with him, she asked me "I am drunk. He's cute right?"

Well, I was drunker and without even looking at him I was like, "YEA!"

Hungover the next morning, my memories of the night came back to me and I realized that her man was more then ...just much more unattractive and personality-less than my friend. I ran to her room (at our dorm) to apologize for being such a dope. He was still there.

Turns out, despite everything working against him, she liked him. A LOT.

They spent the next week spending time together...in her bed.

Then things got weird. She started telling us about how he had kids, but that was OK because she'd make a great stepmom. STEPMOM?!?! you've been sleeping together for a week! and you're 19 and in college.

He worked at a waiter at a nearby restaurant. She proceeded to text him many many MANY times. When he told her to leave him alone, she took that as a challenge and called his work about 40x, and didn't stop even when he and a manager told her that his job was in jeopardy because of her calling (pretty sure he asked the manager to say that! ) She called and texted him relentlessly until he was forced to change his number. All this time, my friends and I begged her to stop harassing him, but she just couldn't handle the rejection of her one night stand!

Guess it wasn't a first date, but a bad ending none the less!
