25 Times People Went on Awkward Dates and Made Us Laugh Pitifully | “The Girl Went to the Toilet and Never Came Back”
Finding love was supposed to get easier with so many dating apps around but is it? Dating has always had its fair share of challenges. Although online profiles and text conversations have now made it easier to get acquainted with a person before we actually meet them, things don't always go smoothly when we meet our dates in person. So when someone asks us about our most awkward date and one of them immediately jumps to mind, we know it was truly awful. It's amazing how we put ourselves through strange, uncomfortable and even unsettling experiences in our pursuit of love. We can now also share these experiences online on our social media profiles or on groups or pages dedicated to such anecdotes. Twitter user @NateIsBack2 was curious about all of these stories. So they went ahead and asked on Twitter, "What's the most awkward date ya'll ever been on?" And here are 25 responses that are making us roar.
What’s the most awkward date y’all ever been on?— Ares (@NateIsBack2) April 12, 2021
1. This ship sank for sure
I went out with a girl who told me she was "emotionally invested" in the Titanic. And through the course of drinks brought up people who died on that boat at least 4 times. She visited some of their graves. 🛳️ That felt like normal info to share on a first date— Brendan Kownacki (@bkownacki) April 15, 2021
The one who brought his girlfriend who “forgot” to mention he was looking for a threesome.— Susan Spector McPherson (@susanmcp1) April 17, 2021
3. Date in reverse
I went out with this guy once and his transmission went out so he drive me home in reverse 🤷🏻♀️— Squirtle 💦🌈 (@wifey_02_) April 13, 2021
4. Thought they were "trying to get me killed!"
Went on a date with a college classmate.— 😷 Cleophus Velaryon (@HeyDrWilson) April 14, 2021
After our food came out, a goddamn knife and meat cleaver fight broke out in the kitchen that spilled into the dinning room.
I spent the rest of the evening wondering if my date was trying to get me killed! 😶https://t.co/uemBcvsjXH
5. After work...
I was closing at work, guy I was seeing asks if I can meet later. Told him yes but after work. The whole time I’m on my way he’s texting me telling me he’s going to leave because I’m taking too long. I show up and he’s wasted. Later he starts ranting about how annoying I am— Megan A. Taros (@megataros) April 14, 2021
6. Got the last laugh
I once went on a date with a stand up comedian and quickly realized that, in her mind, I was the guy in the front row that she planned to drag all night. I left her with the bill. My way of getting the last laugh.— Glenn E. Martin 🐐 (@glennEmartin) April 14, 2021
7. Flat adventurous date
i once went to the movies with a guy and when we got to the parking lot, his car had been broken into. windows smashed, stuff missing, etc. the next date, he got a flat tire on the highway driving home. needless to say, we didn’t go out much longer.— Kayla E. Galloway (@kaylaegalloway) April 14, 2021
8. Short one
I went on a date with a dude who was a lot shorter then me. I’m 5’11 and he was 5’5. He asked me to step off the sidewalk and walk in the street so I wouldn’t make him look so short. He was dead serious. I actually liked him but never spoke to him again after that day.— Ellz the Time Traveler (@elainesinsane) April 13, 2021
9. Spooky much
Went out with a taxidermist-I asked him what he liked about his work-he took his hands and used his fingers to force my mouth open and into a smile while saying “I could make you smile and you would stay that way forever” ...— 🟣💜🟣 (@Wateringdreams) April 14, 2021
10. Chaotic parrot
He brought his rescue parrot on a walking date in Central Park. The damn thing took off and proceeded to dive bomb some lovely young men wearing keffiyeh who were playing soccer, who all panicked and ended up cowering under benches, etc— Ellen with a Blue Check (@ellmcgirt) April 14, 2021
11. First and last
Meet up with this girl at a lounge. When security went to check her bag she had a whole ass bottle of tequila in it and they wouldn’t let us in. I was so embarrassed— Tiq Milan (@TheMrMilan) April 13, 2021
First and last date with that one. 🥴
12. Time is money
With a therapist who informed me the date would be over in 50 minutes.— Tom Beer (@TomBeerBooks) April 15, 2021
13. They weren't brown
He spent a huge chunk of the dinner at a well-lit restaurant giving a long, clearly prepared, speech about how beautiful my brown eyes were and how he couldn't stop thinking about them.— fry (@anniefryman) April 13, 2021
My eyes: pic.twitter.com/tpFMPg3wd2
14. Blinded date for sure
Blind date in my 20s in DC.— Beau Yarbrough ⌚🐕 (@LBY3) April 14, 2021
Within five minutes, I'm told that my date owns a house and is ready to get married within a year. She then more or less orders me to quit journalism and go to law school, something I had (and have) no desire to do.
15. Silent date
We met and I noticed he was super quiet. To fill the silence, I just started talking about randomness.. anytime I asked him a question, he would awkwardly laugh and look away. He texted me 30min into it and told me he was deaf and heard nothing I said... pic.twitter.com/H2cYWVrScZ— Kay 🙇🏾♀️ (@O0hkay_) April 13, 2021
16. Demons tormenting the date
We "bumped" into her pastor on our date and the man said to me "I sense in the spirit that there are demons tormenting you and they will never allow you to have a partner". The girl went to the toilet and never came back. She's married to the pastor now, I'm so happy for them.— GC (@MuyeraNyati) April 13, 2021
17. Date get-together
Blind date, 2011.— Andrew Kozak TV (@AndrewKozakTV) April 15, 2021
We agreed to meet at a bar/restaurant.... where she didn't tell me it was her grandmother's birthday party, and she introduced me to 40 of her family members.
No 2nd date-- my choice.
18. Slept through
A guy took me to the opera (I know, weird first date klaxon, right?) and I fell asleep. I woke in the interval and he’d swapped seats with a nice woman who told me he thought me obscenely ignorant.— Mo Fanning 🏳️🌈 (@mofanning) April 15, 2021
19. "Not bad"?!
OMG I “accidentally” slept with a Nazi sympathizer once. Met in the San Francisco Kink community. Maybe a year after we met I invited him to my place. Afterwards he was looking at my bookshelf w/ my history books & says “Not all of Hitler’s ideas were bad.” pic.twitter.com/kpGlrYnbAl— Prodigal Hoosier (@ProdigalHoosier) April 15, 2021
20. Just why?
This chick invited me over to her house to chill. One hour later she tells that she's married... ummmmn ok they must be separated? Nah! He was upstairs sleeping. Actually he was the one that ok'd her to swipe right on me pic.twitter.com/nTpUFkF8tw— MA$E 🐺 (@Maybach_Millz) April 13, 2021
21. Dumped a drink
Having drinks at the bar and it comes up that I can't have kids. Dude stops talking to me and turns away to start playing video poker. So anyway thats the story about the 2nd time I dumped a drink in someone's lap pic.twitter.com/toLPGlsP2S— Jenna Beet (@JennaBeet) April 14, 2021
22. Shortest date ever
Shortest date ever. He picks me up, I get in the car & he compliments me on my hair. Then he asks if it’s real 😑 when I decline to answer, he turns on the interior light & starts inspecting. “Wait, turn your head let me see” SIR!! You know what..this ain’t gone work. Good night— ginger & spice (@so_antisocial) April 13, 2021
23. Ps4 or Ps5?
i took a guy out on a date and i offered to pay for his food and drinks, and then after i paid for everything, he asked me can i pay to get his ps4 fixed, or if i can buy him a ps5. its up to me... 😒😒😒— Sasha Egg Mcmuffin 🐷 (@peach_drank444) April 13, 2021
24. "Must have been drunk"
I walked in and the guy said, “I must have been drunk.”— Tiger AJ Ray (@TigerAJRay) April 13, 2021
He also kept asking if HE physically gave me his number or one of his friends.
And through the rest of the date he just kept shaking his head saying, “I had to have been drunk.”
25. Satan worshipper
went back to this girl crib after our date and saw that she had a shrine in her room dedicated to satan— Marcus (@STOPFLEXIN) April 13, 2021
