Going on a first date is one of the most nerve-wrecking experiences imaginable. But imagine for a second that when you get to the restaurant, you quickly realize that the other person is completely insane. The women of Reddit recently decided to share the worst stuff they've had to put with guys...
My wife told me this one yesterday, about her older sister on a first date when she was a teen.
The guy asked her to show up wearing red, anything red. She wore a red skirt with red nails. He drove her to a well known make out spot and tried to convince her to dance beside the car while he played "Lady In Red" from the tape deck. As I understand, she wasn't impressed.
If you're going to ask a girl about her hobbies, don't spend the next couple of minutes shitting on her hobbies. The one-up game isn't nice.
Was on a date just last week actually
"Whats your favorite thing to make?"
"I've been told I make a really good medium rare steak"
"Medium rare? So all you do is control the temperature? That's not impressive."
"...Do you like to cook?"
"No. I don't see the need to cook. I can just go to a restaurant and buy food. Haha. Why try to make a steak when you can go to a restaurant and get a good one?"
I think with that comment he was trying to show off that he had money to always go out to eat? I have no idea. But jokes on him, what I like to do on later dates is invite the guy over for a home cooked meal. It's a subtle way of getting a guy over to my place. But that wasn't going to happen with this one.
Ask to wear matching outfits. I wish I was kidding.
"He initiates a dinner date. Dinner date ends up being with his extended family. Since he drove us, I get stuck back at his mom's home with extended family while he disappeared somewhere. I'm not even socially comfortable around my own extended family."
One time, a guy asked me out and showed up in those toe shoes.
Didn't realize it was at the top of my "no no" list until it happened.
Take you to his grandmother's house and ask her for money to pay for the date...
Don't flirt with the waiter. And the girl sitting next to us. And my roommate...
Wear too much cologne. Be on your phone. Talk about your ex. I had a man who brought her up and said I reminded him of her. Ive also had men just talk about how much they hated their exes it's just awkward.
Trying to fingerblast me at dinner
Take me to your place. A guy did it once, no warning after we went out to eat. I had to ask where we were driving when I assumed he was talking me back to my car and he drove in the other direction.
Don't take your date to olive garden, slurp your soup up really really fast, use your finger to get the remaining traces out of the bowl and lick your fingers, and then request two more soup refills in a row so i have to endure this torture again and again
Ask, "Are you a natural blonde?" then shift your eyes to my crotch. Shudders
I once went on a first date where I got into the guys car and he started drifting through the busy streets in an urban area and refused to stop to let me out of the car. He didn't wear shoes and brought me to Carl's Jr. for dinner (which I paid for). As we were driving by an "adult entertainment" store on our way back to my car he asked if I wanted to stop in and go shopping.
Point out hickies that another girl gave you 3 days prior. Text the hickey girl to tell her you're on a date with me, then tell me about texting her.
Riding around on/bragging about the brand of your hoverboard. Also, don't stick your tongue in a girl's ear ten seconds after kissing her for the first time.
Do not say you're in love with her on the first date.
It comes off as creepy more so than sweet.
Don't speculate what color hair and eyes the kids will have.
Seriously--I hadn't been through one meal with the fellow and he already thinks I'll bear his children? Yikes!
Call me "woman".
Did you already forget my name? Is it a weird power thing? I don't get it.
Ask whether the girl had waxed or shaved her private parts. Then, upon hearing no, tell her you have a razor in your backpack.
I noped out of that one right quick.
Don't try to 'neg' me and think I won't notice.
Don't try any of those art of seduction techniques, for that matter. The only guys who would look them up tend to be the ones who are too socially awkward to execute them without it being freaking obvious. It just comes across as dishonest.
Grab a solid handful of your ass cheek as if it were the most appropriate greeting to give your date.
Late to the party, but still. Don't bring your 5yo child and tell him "she's your new mommy ". Nope nope nope.
Wear skin-tight leggings covered in cats flying through the cosmos.
That was a weird night.
