Anybody had a dating nightmare?

Ok, let's see who's got the worst first date story. You know, one of those dates where you pray for the kitchen to catch on fire, for the tornado siren to go off, or for your phone to ring, even if it's a wrong number. ANYTHING to get you out of there.

My worst date was this girl lets call her Maria. I had met Maria thru a friend from work he gave me her number. We talked briefly and I asked if she would like to go out she said sure. So I went to pick up Maria and she came out in a hideous orange muu-muu type shirt and jeans. I asked her if she was ready to go my hint at changing however subtle was missed. I believe in dressing casual but it should at least be presentable.

So anyway we moved on I had plans to take her to a nice restaurant but opted to go to a local diner instead only due to her dress code. The conversation was pretty one-sided and thats not my strong point either. All I could get was one word answers. That is until I asked Maria about past boyfriends she went into this mode of telling me about her past sexploits. Which included sleeping with her former stepfather not blood but still yuck!!!

Needless to say I needed to get out of there and quick. Luckily I was a part time real estate agent at the time. I got a phone call from a client. I lied and told my date I had to go take a customer to a showing so I picked up the check dropped her off. Then immediately called my friend to chew him out.

Whats your story?

Thanks no need for sympathies while she was a mess it does happen. I also learned no more blind dates for me.

Fit good timing I think I have done that before not on a first date though. You really caught yourself in a rush cutting yourself and leaving your wallet behind I'm glad it all worked out for the best and you came out with a great story to tell.

The evening was planned to kick off with the 2 of us watching a concert I was producing. My date had a dog - and the dog came too, which was fine because I happen to love dogs. (The dog's presence is not as weird as it sounds: it was an outdoor show taking place in beautiful grounds.) Halfway through the second half the dog, normally as docile as a lamb, for no reason at all went beserk, romping through the audience, stealing food from picnics and barking its head off. Much to the amusement of some of the audience and the mortification of the performers it went on stage for a bit, and before it could be restrained, tore away into the darkness - and was eventually found barking at a fountain.

I got complaints from some members of the audience, and the venue staff, and I didn't see the funny side of it for quite a while. In fact I was furious with my date for days. I guess my anger didn't last too long: my date and I spent the next 11 years in a (mostly) very happy relationship.

My GOODNESS FitBloke! If you can make it through a first date like that... WOW! Actually, kinda nice to get all the humility out on the first date... makes you relax around each other after that, cuz you realize you're both only mere humans.

Flagg... UGH. STEP-FATHER???????? If a guy told me that... OMG... let's just say I'm so glad it happened to you and not me.

I had one bad date that I recall... a guy that I met on line who was supposed to be a threesome guy for me & Square. He looked artsy, chin-length curly hair, nice smile. He seemed intelligent and hippie-ish. He was great on line. So, we met for drinks one rainy night. The pub was close, just a block away from me. He had gotten there right before me, as I saw the cab pull away that had dropped him off.

Well. His hair was all greasy-looking, un-kempt and hanging in his eyes. He was STONED, reeking of dope. Clothes looking like he'd slept in them. I sat down, and he sat beside me, instead of across from me, and put his arm around me! We talked for a bit, which was still pretty cool... but then a song came on that he started singing along with while I was in the middle of saying something.

I had already decided that I didn't like the guy... as I was leaving, he leaned in to give me a kiss. I let him, thinking, what the hell, if he's a decent kisser, he might win back my favour.

Let's just say I now know what it would be like to kiss a vacuum cleaner. Hands-down, WORLD'S WORST KISSER EVER.

I told him about a week later that my husband made me stop playing.

Which makes me feel guilty... the guy is probably never gonna know he's such a terrible kisser if no one ever tells him so. BUT... OMG!!!!! HOW can he think that's how you're supposed to kiss????

2 summers ago when i was on AdultFriendFinder for i think my 3rd time (ever the optimist) over the years and under a different handle i set up a meeting with someone. i believe i mentioned it in one of my responses on the a-line. we chatted and he sent a pic, not a very good one but, i agreed to meet.
now i do like older men and he said he was 60, the pic seemed to match the quoted age, so i felt confident. well, he called a couple hours prior and said his cat was sick and had to go to the vet a.s.a.p. being a cat person i said no problem. so i nixed my shower that night and decided to grub it and read a book. at around 10:30 p.m. he calls to tell me he is at the exit off the highway near my house saying all was well and he was free. okay call me stupid, but i said okay but he would have to wait while i got ready. (desperate or what? i mean me!)
he called a couple more times having trouble finding the place and finally arrived. i went down to meet him at the door...
what i saw initially was a very old man at the back door, i did not think at first it was him, but perhaps someone else that lived in my building. yup it was him! he was wearing white shorts, above the knee. knee-high socks, old-man slippers, like bathrobeguy would wear if he had legs, a long sleeve red plaid shirt, tucked in a belt with his shorts hitched up like steve erkel, pens in the shirt pocket and a cane. he looked to be around 75, like arte johnson's dirty old man from the old variety show laugh-in. now being the gracious sort, i hid my shock and dismay well, although i did have to swallow my barf from coming up LOL. we headed out for a drink. at that point i needed 10! i asked if he'd be more comfortable without the socks as it was about a zillion degrees outside. he said know he had to wear them to keep his ankles from swelling. okay then... we went to his vehicle which happened to be a mini-van (what else) and off we went to a little pub that i knew nobody, as i did not care to run in to anyone. as we pulled in the lot he went to park in a handi-capped zone. i said "oh no you can't park there". without a word as if to impress me, whips out his handi-capped parking ticket. (nothing against disabled folks here, just trying to present the whole pic). so we sat on the patio and for the next hour he regaled me with stories of his surgeries over the years. finally when i could stand no more, he told me he was married. that said, it was the perfect out for me and i decided it was time to part ways. i have another one about my most recent experience here several weeks ago, but the emotional scars are still to fresh to relive at this time LOL.

Oh, my gosh! While the fellas have some pretty humorous stories, I think daddysbadgirl takes the cake! Now I know I’ve had some pretty bizarre dates—years ago---way before the internet---I was going to write a book on blind dating—I had a ton and almost took it on as a sport—just as a sociological insight.

But honestly, I think my selective memory process has managed to erase any bad dates of major consequence from my memory. Too much trauma, perhaps. I guess I’d have to stop and ask some friends what the most outrageous date story was that I ever told them because honest to God, I can’t recall what or which one it would have been. I think that is probably a good thing.

Fitjames: Sounds like something out of a movie absolutely hilarious its good you saw the levity in it.

Hippie: Gee thanks!!!!
Thats too bad he does sound pretty hippie-ish. I've had a girl kiss me like that before I think she went to far with it. It actually made my tongue sore for days not sexy.

DBG:I'm surprised you didn't run upon the siting of bathobeguy's twin brother. Sounds like a true horror story I'm glad you got the free pass out of there from him.

SW3: We all have stories DBG is the winner so far I would imagine you as the type of person to bring out the weird and zany in people. It might be good to forget honestly though all these bad dates do is give us something to laugh about.

Oh, dear god, sexyeyes, the 10-day long hobo from overseas sounds like a nightmare! I hopefully he wasn't staying at your place!

I did have one date from here almost the same darn thing. I asked him to make sure he packed some dressy casual/golf casual shirt, nice slacks, no tennis shoes. Well, he showed up in jeans, tennis shoes and heaven only knows that the shirt was---he kept his bomber jacket on the whole time. That was one of the few times I didn’t offer to pay my half for dinner and it was the last time I saw him.

I guess the wrinkled shirt with the hole in the pants---LOL---is worse!

I still wish I had a better story! I swear, to protect me from the trauma, the selective memory process must have kicked in!

Ten days sleeping in your place wearing the same clothes I do hope you at least got him to shower. I suppose they let him in upon the fact that his shirt was clean but a hole in the pants. Your a strong woman for putting up with him for a week and a half.

LOL A european thing is that what he said I spent a year in germany while in the military and I never saw something like that. Couldn't even change up the sweater from his pic.

Also how did he use these books to talk seems so time consuming and thoughtless. I'd have to imagine that he would be speechless when you guys went out without his reference material.
