Dating can be like a roller coaster, with some pretty uncomfortable bumps along the way. Bad dates are those times when things go really wrong – they might make you cringe or laugh later. But, believe it or not, these weird experiences help us become stronger and better at handling the ups and downs of dating. So, let’s not be afraid to share those awkward stories – they’re like the funny pages in our dating book that make us wiser and tougher. What is the worst date you’ve ever been on? Let’s talk about it.

Christopher Cavazos: “I remember that she hardly spoke. Never again.”

Lonnie Bradley: “I have never had a bad date, but then I always tried to have a plan to keep things moving.”

Danielle Marie Haywood: “At dinner, when he asked what I was looking for, I replied I don’t know what are you looking for? His response? “Something casual because divorce is expensive.” (He was MARRIED and I had no idea until that moment!)”

Veronica Amaro: “All except one. This made me remember my best date ever.”

Robert Martinez: “Where do I start, amiga?”

Charlie Parker: “I asked the waiter if he could hold a check till friday and he said yes. I went to the restroom and came back and the date was gone. We didn’t have cell phones and I couldn’t call her. So I took her portion home. True Story.”

Gracie Ortiz: “Oh man, let me tell you about this one time I went on a date with a guy. We decided to go grocery shopping at HEB together. So, there we are, strolling down the aisles, tacking items off my shopping list. Everything’s going fine until we hit the ham and weiner section. And what does he do? He picks up a pack of weiner links, grabs some hot dog buns, snags a bag of chips, and even grabs a gallon of tea. Then, he just starts chowing down on all 8 weiner links right then and there! I couldn’t believe it – I told him straight up, “Dude, I’m not covering your meal!” I asked him if he hadn’t eaten before we came, and he just casually says he does this all the time at HEB! Can you believe it? I was so grossed out, to be honest. It totally turned me off, and you know what? I ghosted him after that. Sometimes you just gotta say no to a hot dog feast in the middle of the grocery store, right?”

Dennis Irish: “Which One??”

Robert Vasquez: “When I went out to eat alone. I’m the worst date ever.”
Joshua J Rivas: “Court dates.”

Ralph Tello: “When she had been stood up by someone else, so I ended up pretending to be her date to fool her mom. The lengths we go to for some good old-fashioned family approval.”

Ramon Chapa Jr.: “I asked 2 different girls out on the same night! They were both brand new so I didn’t want to lose either. All night going from one to another without the other one knowing! I pulled it off though and then eventually juggled both of them for like 6 months! What A Life! LOL”

Benjamin Godina: “When she smiled.”

Johnny Dancer: “In 1997, went to Olive Garden with this person. The entire time the person kept talking about themselves and eating bread sticks for almost 30 minutes. When I finally reached for the first bread stick, the person told me, ‘don’t finish them all…’ “

Yvette Elizabeth: “Lmao! I could write a book! I met a guy who didn’t look like his picture. We met for drinks – no chemistry on my part. During our conversation, he asked if I sin everyday- Lol the date ended quickly and I walked out!”

Ignacio Oliva: “Never had a bad date. I’m a delight!!”

Mary Svetlik Watkins: “We met at a bar. He was already drunk and then puked on me.”

Rick Carter: “Oh, don’t even get me started. I’ll say it was the nurse I was having dinner with and she received a text.. ‘oh, that was the last guy I slept with, too bad, I’ve moved on’… my response was, ;waiter, check please!’ Yeah… but then the one who thought it was a boxing date-knocked 2 crowns out back in 2011.. rough year.I met one for coffee at Cracker Barrel, she ordered pancakes, eggs sunny side up, steak, hash browns, bacon, & O.J….. hey, girl’s gotta eat! Oh, but then one who I had to get cleared thru Lurch, her step dad before we could go out… I was 50, she was 45 … go figure.. giving it a break now, every date is a train wreck.”

Raymond Castellano: “Everything went wrong, the driver was late, the meal was cold, the waitress was having a bad day but my date was a champ.”

Gene A. Gomez: “She got sooo drunk. Big turn off.”

Janice Rodriguez: “I went on a date with this person who spent the entire date telling me, while we were in a crowded Mexican restaurant, first, how much he hated his wife but wouldn’t divorce her because he hated her so much that he didn’t want her to have anything he had, followed by the detailed story of her suicide.”

Sammy Martinez: “I had a great date I met on and I was walking her home at the end of the night and suddenly she started to run away. I started to chase after her and asked her what happened and she just said “Police! I have a warrant out for me.” Well when I found out she had a warrant I kept running, but a different direction than she went. I eventually got caught by the cops and I had to spend a good 20 minutes explaining to them the situation and how I was in no way involved in her crack cocaine dealing ring.”

Stephanie Krawferd: “Went to the zoo with a guy, we rushed through it and he wouldn’t let me see much of anything because he had a hair appointment he just had to keep. He was getting his remaining hair frosted. Second and last date, he left me sitting alone at a table in the park for around a half an hour because he saw a tree he simply “had” to meditate under. Alone.”

Bill Johnson: “Out on a first date, we’re talking about mutual friends, neighbors, family, etc., and LOTS of the names are familiar.Long story short, I discovered that she was my second cousin. Yay, rural Kentucky.”

Jerry Love: “I went on a date once with a guy who intended to study mortuary science. He asked me how I’d feel about taking a cold bath before sex, and then staying very still throughout. I couldn’t get out of that car fast enough!”
