Bad dates....let's have a laugh!

I've been digging a little more into online dates and the last 3 of 4 guys i met up with were doozies. So I thought maybe we could share some bad date stories! Let's have a laugh about them.

A few days ago I met up with a man i'd been talking to by text and phone for about 2 weeks. Our date consisted of him having me meet him at the mall and he returned some clothes he'd bought and shopped for replacements. And that was it! He DID buy me a blended coffee drink lol. The plus side is after we left his store I told him I was going to go shopping alone in sephora. So I at least got a new mascara out of the date!

Also, last week I met another man, who asked me after 2 hours of meeting him for a drink , if he could come over and sleep on my couch. I told him no and he got so mad he hurried back to his vehicle all angry and left!

What are your stories?

And you know, I have nothing against Panera. I love Panera. But at 5:30 for a first meet? I could see breakfast or lunch, but 5:30 is more like glass of wine (which I suggested). And yeah, I know he may not drink, but still. He was also obsessed about meeting exactly halfway. (Eye roll).

Wow.. Marina could fill this thread up all by herself -- and several times over!  But sadly there will be no more posts from her :smileysad: , or so she indicated.

Oh and Marina, we know you are reading this and are very tempted to reply... and having a hard time resisting the temptation.  It's ok, you can end your moratorium now, if you want :smileyhappy:

Speaking of Panera, earlier this year I met an OLD for lunch at Panera.  It was crowded and I kept waiting for him - wait, who's this guy walking with his thermos - sure enough be BYOB.  When I asked it was some kind of green tea with supplements that his ? prescribed for him.  What are those wholistic healers called?  Thankfully I can't remember.

Here's another story from this year.  I met someone at meet up who used to live in my condo complex and also had his family home in the same neighborhood.  He picked me up (I really didn't want that, but OK) and at the end of the date he took the street that would have led either to his condo or his original family home.  I corrected him but still laugh - did he think that by picking me up he then had the right to take me to his condo?  Or was it force of habit, going to the original family home?  Once and done, no loss there.

I don't really have any horrible date stories, but I want Panera now!

Most of the guys I met on OLD were just far too boring, cheap, or shallow. Sometimes I'd meet a guy who was all three and I felt like I hit the jackpot!

I have to preface this story with two things.  One, I was a major party girl back in the day.  Two, this happened back in the mid to late 90's.

My roommate had her work Xmas party at our place this one year.  She wanted me to attend so I did.  Although, I had a date later on in the evening(it was to be our first date).  Everyone got wasted.  Her boss was young and cute.  Somehow, we wound up on the floor together.  I have no idea where everyone else was, I'm assuming in the kitchen.  I swear I don't know how, but he'd managed to get one of his shoe strings wrapped around a button on my vest.  My date came to the front door and rang the doorbell.  I tried to get up to get to the door but was tied to this guy's foot.  Being that I was intoxicated, I had to yell for my roommate to come untangle us.  I am not sure how it all unraveled, but I ended up in the bathroom.  My date tried to coax me out to no avail and I'm guessing that during that time, her boss slipped out.  I guess I was in there a long time because when I came out, my date was gone and there were only four people left at the house.  To my surprise, I was given another chance to go out with the original guy but he turned out to be a bit of a douche so I only went out with him a few times.

I had a date at a coffee shop about a year half ago.. He looked okay and we sat down. He already had his coffee and said to me oh; I will pour some from my cup to yours.. Then he bought a cookie and broke it in half and gave me half.. OMG..We sat down and then he says oh; I am still married but separated.. I looked at my watch and said oh; I have to go because there is company waiting at  my house..and I left never to seee him again.  Oh; and he called me and wanted to get together again. I said no thanks..

The last date I had through OLD was about a year ago. We met at a Panera at 5:30 p.m. (his choice). I got there first. When I saw him come in, my thoguht was "old man." The very first thing he said to me was, "You'll have to forgive me, I'm in a lot of pain. I had a root canal yesterday, I had some hairs transplanted from my neck to my head this week plus I strained a muscle and had a deep tissue massage."

Wouldn't a "hi, how are you?" have been sufficient?

What are your stories?

I can't imagine why you wouldn't want a stranger you had just met to sleep over!  What are some people thinking--or not thinking?

I can't think of any really horrible dates I had through guys I met on OLD--the worst of it was just that a couple were boring--and we're talking about going back 10 yrs here cause I haven't had that many recently.
