Funny dating scenarios
After a bad breakup, I let my mom set me up with the son of one of her friends.
I knew nothing about him other than his name and the fact that he was 16 years my senior. It ended up being the shortest dinner date in history — a total of 22 minutes, mostly consisting of him making outdated pop culture references in an attempt to relate to me.
We leave the restaurant, and he says, "This always happens to me when I drink rum.
It makes me have to pee." We keep walking, and then I realize I'm walking by myself because he stopped to pee in the alley, right in front of me.
I then found out my date had set his roommate on fire and thrown him down a flight of stairs.
Now he's in prison, and I never accepted another blind date invitation again.
(I wish I was making this up.) I make it to the ladies' room, where my waitress walks in after me as I'm planning my escape route, and she says, "Um, I was just listening in on your date. —Kristin, NYThough we had really hit it off on the phone, when we met in person, my blind date looked nothing like he said he did and spent our entire date talking about how unattractive he is and how women constantly reject him, asking me if I thought he was ugly.
—Diana, NJMy date told me he wanted to take me to a restaurant out in a ritzy town that was pretty far from where I live.
Less than a minute after I get in the dude's car, he's like, "I forgot that you lived so far out.
I saw him at a party 10 years later, and we ended up having a conversation.
By the end of the evening, we had dinner plans for a few nights later. My saving grace was a friend of mine who happened to be waitressing that night. Jack didn't even offer to drive me home when I announced I had to leave; he said "okay" and kept on talking! He actually called me the next day and asked if I wanted to go out again!
