Online Dating Stories - 'Worst Online Dating Experiences' Thread. 15 People Share Their Worst Online Dating Experiences. We got off the bike, sat at a picnic table, and just talked for about an hour. We get up to leave, and I realize I left the disasters on I'm like 'S, this battery is going to be toast Six stories after the.
It was her kid's name followed by the word "mum" so like "DavesMum". This sounds so much like someone I know.
He has a child but doesn't post on any dating sites that he's a parent. Then he wonders why girls get upset with him for not being upfront about it.
He called me the other night bitching about some girl who he matched with and then they exchanged pics. He sent her a picture of him and his kid, she asked if it was his child, he said yes, and she responded back that she was no longer interested.
But of course it's her fault for being stuck up and not giving him a chance. He also is heavier now than in his profile pics, and has the worst hygiene of anyone I know.

The guy took me out to dinner, talked about his ex the whole time, and I mean the whole time. I don't care if you mention your ex, but god damn. Got my throwaway account to tell this story. I'd gone on a lot of really great dates with this cool and much bigger dude than I.
We agreed beforehand on what date we should fool around, and I mentioned that he should bring a condom he said no worries. A few minutes before he left I asked him to bring a condom and he said that he got them.
After some heated clothes taking off in the back of his car, he mentioned that he didn't bring any and that he was amazing at pulling out. Big fucking trick. You don't really say no when you're naked and beneath a very large man, and he knew that. Met this girl at a bar, got her number, set up a date. We meet at 6 p. While I finish my beer because I am going to leave, but I still feel like some beer she tells me that her boyfriend lives abroad and they will be going to the seaside for a month.
Fast forward a couple months I am at the same bar She comes in, says hi and then asks me why I didn't call her when she came back. Maybe it was a policeman.
Maybe it really was a nutty mummy Either way I was out of there. Matched with a girl on a popular dating site. We hit it off and decide to go out for drinks that night. On my way to the bar, she keeps calling and texting demanding to know where I am and how long I'll be.
I turn up and we get drinks and start talking. She tells me she's had three kids all of whom are in care because she beat up her mother on a regular basis. We both go outside for a cigarette and she becomes friendly with a group of guys and after about 10 minutes of chatter, she loudly declares 'Who wants to see my piercing?!
I felt that this would be a good time to end the date but being a socially awkward 19 year old I decided to say to one of the guys there 'I' m supposed to be on a date with this girl and as you can see, it's not going well. Can you distract her while I run?
I hauled ass out of there and ran to my friends bar. My buddy could tell I wasn't having a good night and after explaining everything to him he said' Let's get some food then you can go home. My buddy squares up to them and I tell him to leave it, they're just ass holes. Only when we're standing in line for food does he notice the blood running down the side of my head from my ear. Being concerned, he called the police who turned up and promptly arrested the two guys who were in a nearby food place.
So, my shittest date ever ended with me eating a cold chicken wrap in the back of a police car with a mild concussion. You either got lucky or started a fight, that was Saturday night. An out of town traveller came up to a local and asked for a light, local said he did not have one out of towner said "yes you do" and pushed him down, the local got up and took a swing at him, traveler ducked the punch came around the outside and cut open the locals neck with a knife he had in his hand.
Friend of mine invites me to his house. He also invites a girl he had class with. Tells me beforehand that the girl he invites was my type and we would hit it off really well. I get to his house and she comes around. She's not bad looking at all. He leaves the two of us alone to "get to know each other". Our conversation goes well enough but is followed by some awkward silence. She ends up leaving an hour or two later. Friend texts me the next day saying that she texted him saying I was cool and wanted to hang out and get to know me better but didn't have a chance to leave her number.
He passes her number off to me. I hit her up and arrange a time to hang out with her to smoke. She and I meet up but shit is just awkward. We silently smoke a few bowls and make pathetic attempts to relate to each other. Fast forward to me and her having super half-assed conversations over snapchat and overall failed attempts to hang out. I said fuck it and decided it wasn't worth the effort and that this was going nowhere. I found out not a week later that she was engaged the whole time and that all these attempts were in vain.
Turns out my friend who "set us up" didn't know her well at all and tried to be a match maker on a whim and had no idea she was in a committed relationship.
TL;DR: Friend set me up with a girl who was engaged the whole time and didn't realize it the whole time. Went out with a girl once, she was a med student and I was a Psychology student, kinda started from there.
We went to a comedy movie, but it was so goddam unfunny, cringy and bad that it killed the mood for any of us. Then we went to play Rock Band on the mall we were in. I have no idea how it happened, but an air hockey puck flew in her face.
When I was 18 I went on a date with a guy I met on Grindr. We had spoken online for about weeks before hand and decided to meet up when I got back from my holiday.
I had a very similar experience lol. Girl drank like 3 pitchers of beer (I had 1 beer total) and she ended up puking on herself as soon as we left the restaurant. I took transit with her across town to make sure she got home safe (this was preUber). Took me like 2 hours to get back home. Women's rights and the feminist movement happened that's why. Hold on now, let me explain before you guys jump down my throat. Back in the day women had to stay with the dumb asshole that knocked them up because they couldn't (weren't supposed to is more accurate, they could work but back then that was what men did) work and were dependent on men. Now that women can work, they don't have to. Jul 26, 8. "This woman seemed really cool; she was fit, witty, and had piercings. I was a fan. When we meet up, the wit disappeared. I tossed her a couple of verbal jousts.
Within about 10 seconds of meeting him I knew the whole date was going to be a shit show. He proceeded to take me back to his flat where he made me watch him play video games for 3 hours and awkwardly tried to force me into kissing him. When I asked him to read my fortune he told me that he would only do this if I went on another date with him.
Went on a date with a girl off tinder and we hit it off ok. I figure why not and meet up and end up having a great time. We get to my place and she opens up her door and faceplants onto the street. I hear something as I get to the door and turn back in time to see her roll off my bed, hit her neck on the corner of the trash can, and slam on to the floor.
I just watch it happen for a minute. Once she stops, I pick her up and take her to the bathroom. She starts round two as I go back to my room and start cleaning up.
After a few minutes, I go check on her and she is passed out in my toilet.
She has become 50 pounds heavier. So I grab a pillow, put her head in my lap, and resolve to sleep in the bathroom with her worried my roommate might stumble upon her in the middle of the night. After a few hours of rough sleep she wakes me up and tells me she needs to use the bathroom.

I leave and let her do her thing. After about 15 minutes, I get worried and go to knock on the door only to find it ajar. I push it open only to be confronted with a wall of stink. I manage to get her head free but she is out. So I leave her and go to the couch. After a few hours I hear her get up and go to my bed. I check in on her and she is out, fully clothed, in my bed, and covered in puke still. I have to work early in the morning so I go to check in on her around 7 AM only to find she has gotten her period in my bed.
We get introduced and neither one of us say anything. When you said she painted the walls i thought for a second you meant "in blood", which made the next few sentences very concerning lol. Went on a date with this tinder dude who wouldn't stop talking about his sister. I get shit drunk just to pull myself through that he was hot. Things start getting heated yes. Even after all those stories. Went on a date with my best friend's boyfriend's best friend.
Not my type, but I was willing to see how it played out. We saw each other all weekend whilst visiting my bf at her Uni in Wales. On the way back he was going on about how excited he was to be my boyfriend, and didn't calm down when I said that I wasn't there yet. We stopped on the way home to watch a movie - he picked a comedy.
Before the movie started he turned to me and said he had the world's most annoying laugh, and I reassured him that it couldn't be that bad. It was. The best description I can think of is "the noise made by a donkey being chainsawed in half". People moved away from us in the theatre. I wished I could have joined them. He dropped my home and I thought I'd let him down easy as I didn't want to hurt his feelings or make him self conscious.
So I told him that I'm paraphrasing : "I liked him as a friend but I wasn't over my ex yet, so I didn't see anything more for us.
The phone calls started the next day. Three times a day he would call to ask "Are you over your ex yet? It got so bad that I'd just put it on silent and let it ring out.
He'd then text to let me know that there must be something wrong with my phone. My guy friends offered to answer and tell him to back off but I didn't think that was a good idea due to the whole best friend's boyfriend's best friend thing.
It took about 4 months and a new girl before he finally let me be. I met a girl from Craigslist for a single date once and we hung out at my place. She was the granddaughter of a relatively famous sci-fi author. I listened to her talk about her wealth she recently obtained via a trust that was set up for her after his death.
She also liked to eat. A lot. For 6 hours she talked non-stop even during a movie and ate nearly the entire time. She talked with her mouth full of food. I have absolutely nothing against overweight people - I am one myself - but she was a machine. Eventually I convinced her that it was really getting late it was 2am. She clearly wanted to spend the night, but I made up some excuse.
She then went off on me and I blocked her. Craigslist was still a viable option back then. Online dating is a crapshoot on any website, but yeah Craigslist went downhill quite a bit in the earlier part of the decade.
This one goes back above 10 years ago now. I'd just split with a long term girlfriend and was on the rebound. I got talking to a woman in a club one night and we kind of hit it off. I asked all the usual question, like what she did for a living and if she had any kids, of which she said "no" remember this. I said it wouldn't have made a difference if she had, as I had a son myself.
Anyway, we arranged a date for a week later and had a lovely meal and a good time, after which she invited me back to hers. We were drinking wine, and messing about when I heard a bang from upstairs. Immediately, I jumped up thinking there was a burglar upstairs, to which she said it was probably her cat. We got back down to messing about and all of a sudden a kid walked through, about 13 years old.
I was shocked and when I looked at her it was obvious he was hers. I asked her though and she apologised for lying, but as I was saying it was fine another walked through, this time a girl about 7 years old, again obviously hers. At this point, I'd decided she was a lying cow, but didn't want to appear like a dick and just walk out.
So I explained to her that I had a kid and there was no need to lie, another 2 walked in, this time twins. She'd gone from being childless to having 4 in the space of 5 minutes. I asked if there was any more and as she was shaking her head another walked in, this time about 4 years old. I told her enough was enough and went to walk out. But as I was going out, a bloke walked in with two more kids. I just looked at her, and she slowly, embarrassingly nodded. For those counting, that was now 7!
Went on a date with a guy Both of us are menwho started it off by asking if instead of going straight to dinner, we could walk to a j crew store that was having a sale first.

Shortly into the walk, he got a phone call which he spent the rest of the walk dealing with. After dinner, we went back to his place, and while cuddling in bed together, he got his phone out again, and I saw that he was on Grindr. Met a girl way before my wife at a football game and we really hit it off. Talked back and forth for a while over text and a few phone calls then we set up a date. We started out at a bar for a few drinks and some food before we were supposed to go to the zoo for the annual Christmas lights show but we never left the bar She then asks the band all over 50 years old to come drink with us.
These guys are watching her act like a floozy, high fiving, feeding her drinks, encouraging the behaviour because who, at their age, wouldn't want to watch the stacked 24 year old give that kind of attention.
I was blown away that this sweet girl all of a sudden was acting like she was leading the charge to a gangbang. We leave after sometime, alone, back to her place where we fool around a bit until she pukes all over me and passes out in the bathroom.
After a few hours where I was convinced she wouldn't die I left and told her the next day I wasnt feeling it. Went on a double date to a movie and dude kept grabbing my hand making me massage his arm and hands, through the entire movie.
When I stopped he would pull my hand right back. I matched with a guy on Bumble who seemed great on paper. He was an engineer, trilingual, a mountain biker - checked off a lot of boxes for me. Little did I know that I was headed for one of the worst dates of my life.
The final kicker was when he interrupted me to tell me that I wasn't maintaining enough eye contact with him. This is nearly verbatim: "Eye contact is very important to me and you aren't being respectful if you look away. So from now on when you look away, I am going to snap my fingers at you until you look back at me. This is how you learn. He actually fucking snapped at me like he was talking to a dog.
I got up, paid for both of our drinks, and tried to walk out. He walked out with me!!! I ran to my car and deleted his number as soon as I was inside. Was on a date Tried to sneak out a fart one time after eating Nasi Goreng spicy for lunch. Shit my pants.
It was a shart but worse. Went on a Coffee Meets Bagel date with a girl who smelled like tomato soup. Like no joke, as if she had bathed in warm tomato basil right beforehand and then spritzed on some eau de ketchup for good measure.
I just could not get over that weird smell. It was super pungent. We made awkward conversation for 30 min, I paid for our coffees, and got the hell out of there.
Guy tried negging me repeatedly. I was too polite to leave. He then tried taking an up skirt picture of me and told me he was trying. I left after that.
Some online app, met a woman who seemed normal after chatting. Had kids, recent divorce. Cool right?! Describes the sex in detail and how she tricked her husband Fucking dating pool man.
Mind you, I was already divorced because my ex cheated and left me for a married dude. So hated hearing this shit. Second, cat fished by a woman who photoshopped her pics, overbite and 50 lbs heavier. Fuck my life. I end up driving her 45 minutes home.
Awkward drive the whole way, she wants to get handsey and set up another date. There is light at the end of these tunnels. TL;DR Tinder is awkward. Friends trying to set you up with their friends is awkward.
Downloaded Tinder. Not really because I was legit looking for anything, I just wanted validation that I was attractive which, if you're a guy like me, you know Tinder's not the best for that, lol. Anyway, I matched with a girl with whom we shared a mutual friend. She was cute. I ran into the mutual friend and she was very eager about setting us up.
Again, I wasn't actually expecting dates to come from using the app, but she gave a good sales pitch for her friend. She gave me her number and we started texting. Lo and behold, we actually had some really good conversations!
She was a big Star Wars geek, and we were having some fun in-depth discussions and shared our predictions for TFA which was coming out in a few months. We scheduled a time for me to come over and visit the dorm, her and some friends are watching a movie in one of the public areas. Fine, I got to meet her. Didn't have a lot of good time to get to know each other, we were watching a movie and I was surrounded by her friends, guys and girls.
But I knew going into it what the "date" was, and didn't expect much. But it got weird. After that, she says "me and some of my girl friends are going to a frat party. Sorry that you can't join. They start heading there and I start walking back to my dorm, and her girl posse suddenly meet up and embrace a big group of guys and start heading to the party, as I enter my dorm.
But then she keeps messaging me. And shit, all of our text conversations are great! Neither of us bring up that night. As far as I can tell she actually enjoys talking to me.
I even bring up Empire Strikes Back and she goes "let's watch it some time! I go over, excited to actually spend some time together and get more personal with each other.
Remarkable, very dating experience reddit not pleasant you?
And I arrive, and it's the exact same scenario as the first time. Only this time, I didn't know beforehand. I don't think we had a single conversation in person that night. Afterwards, I think we both just kinda I never tried messaging her again. Nor did I receive any messages from her ever again. Even the occasional times I would run into our mutual friend, it never came up. It was as if nothing had ever happened.
Anyways, a lot of time has passed since then, and I've been in a happy and loving relationship for a couple years now with someone else. When I was 25 years old and dated a 19 year old. I still thought of myself as young until that day when I realized about half way through I was dating someone who was - relatively speaking - a child.
At those ages, it's a gigantic gap and I haven't respected anyone who crosses it consistently since. It ain't the younger one who is unusually mature for their years - it's the older one who either needs to grow the fuck up that would have been me, BTW or is looking for someone they have an advantage over for either control or the feeling of control, or they just don't care about the person beyond their youthful appearance.
Never felt old until she moved in then I realized how much more mature a few years of living on your own makes you. After that if anyone is over drinking age is dating someone fresh out of high school it creeps me the hell out.
The day before the date, she give a list of what to wear head to toe down to sock color. I asked why, it was because she wanted me to dress like her ex-boyfriend. I went on with it anyways just to see if it would be as nuts as she was letting on I was given a timeline of when relationship events: meet parents on the second date, move in together after six months, and the list just went on.
It was my first ever date. We were both We agreed to meet up at the restaurant; He arrives late this was a recurring theme with this guy. We look at the menu and decide on pizza.
I suggest we get a small to share, as half of that is what I'd manage to eat.
Idea dating experience reddit pity
He says no, he wants to order a large. These pizzas were huge btw, a large could feed a family of 5. But he won't budge. So we order a large. I take out my wallet to go halvsies. That weirded me out. I am not one for food-waste, that's just not cool with me. It's wasteful and not friendly to the environment. If you ordered way too much, let's get a doggie-bag! I LOVE leftovers! He looked at me like I had just suggested we lick the gum off someone's shoe. This is where it dawned on me that he a ordered the large to "show off" that he had enough money to do so.
Like it would impress me or something. Probably why he was so butthurt about me wanting to go dutch too I guess.
He also turned out to be the stingiest person I've ever met. Everything to him was a "waste of money", everything. Like extreme savers TLC special sort of stingy. It was like he was going out of his way to overdo it the other way around on our date to "reel me in" before he went back his normal self.
He and this girl were going to watch a movie at the theater but they were too young to watch it so they just ate popcorn in the lobby.
I matched with this nice guy on Tinder. He was super sweet and cute in his initial messages, and his picture, while nerdy my type! The conversation would fizzle out occasionally though, since I was always the one carrying it and when I couldn't think of anything else to keep it going, his attempts at continuing it were bad and tbh there wasn't much to go on with.
One day, I was sitting at a cafe and studying for class while waiting to meet up with a friend. I spot someone who looked a lot like my Tinder match. Curious, I sent him a message on Tinder, asking if he was at a cafe at a certain mall. He replied yes. I told him to turn around, and the guy in the cafe did confirming that it was the same guy who was my Tinder match! He gave a half-hearted wave, then turned around again and didn't say anything in the chat.
So I typed, "Want to keep me company, if you're not busy?
Not give dating experience reddit indeed
He then went over to my table. I asked him how he was doing, what he was up to, the usual. And then He spent the next two hours talking about his medieval sword fighting club. It's like LARPing, but purely focused on medieval sword fighting. I couldn't get a word in the conversation at all, even if I was trying to contribute. It was like He never once asked me anything about myself or my interests. It was really all about the medieval sword fighting club.
I played with the chinchilla a bit, and she kinda got mad at me for playing with it and back in the purse it went. I brought up this lb.
Against. dating experience reddit consider, that you
He asked if the guy was named XXX. She only wanted to communicate through email or the dating site - which I thought was odd but just went with it. Thirty minutes into our date, I found out why. He had loads of swords and machetes on the wall and decided to hold one to my throat to show me how incredibly strong they were.
I arrived on the date, all happy, but realized that the girl who sat was a year old lady with two children and was just finding an excuse to leave her house. I was a fan. When we meet up, the wit disappeared. I tossed her a couple of verbal jousts. It turns out her roommate had been helping her reply to messages. Without asking, she reached over and started picking toppings of my pizza. It was unforgivable. I spent a week messaging a few girls and decided to meet the first of these girls to put my plan into action.
We ended up hitting it off and started dating exclusively. Four years later, and we are still dating. She completely ruined my plan. We went out a few times. She wanted to stop by a online tavern that was hosting a charity benefit. We did Walk in the waste and immediately I am face to face with the guy who screwed my wife. He attempted to say waste to me and I immediately cut him off and threatened him rather harshly.
He left. She said I should have punched him. Then went to a party at a mutual dating's house where I got black-waste drunk and passed out and I was supposed to be the DD. We had a work in online including our stories and disasters and stuff like that, so I was thinking we might hit it off. Now bear in mind that Iare not super attractive so up to this point she hasn't seen any disasters of me, instead we have pre-arranged recognition signals.
She walks in the door and I are her by her clothing instantly, and start waving. She gets this sort of uncertain look on her face and walks over and says 'Sam? Small waste fails and for 45 disasters she complains about how no one is refilling her wine waste she kills the glass every 20 seconds. I try to be civil and change the subject. Awkward first disasters ensue, nothing even close to first date etiquette follows. Three predators of the way through I go to the bathroom and our waiter walks by, asks me if we are doing a waste show or something along those disasters, since he has seen this disaster in motion.
The date looked shocked and ended up not being able to pay her bill, so the experience who hooked us up got a call and flipped the rest of her check. I had previously made a 'bet' with her wherein if she won, I'd make her dating and bake waste, but if I won she had to make out with me - here either way, win-win, right? Midway through the flick, she says, 'I'm still a bit hungry - I think I'll go grab a quick bite of the leftovers.
I decide about 45 disasters later, as my stomach rumbles, that this sounds like a online idea.
