Dating horror stories

February 09, 2012|RedEye

Love is certainly in the air wiith Valentine's Day just around the corner. Naturally, we at RedEye want to find out about some of the biggest dating fails out there. We asked our Facebook fanbase to tell us their worst first date story and here's what they said. (Submit your own at or join the Facebook conversation and it could be added to the list.)

"Oh gosh, I have one but it is much too wrought with horrors to put it all in here. The short short version, Waka Flaka as our mood music. Met his sister, niece, 2 cousins, his son and mother. He first thought it would be great if we got something and ate in the car as he ran errands. Then wanted to take me to Burrito King for dinner. Finally got him to a restaurant that you can actually sit down at and they come to your table to take your order and and said he felt uncomfortable because there were to many "ethnicities" in the place. oh did i mention the drug run he also took me on???? Once I got home I made sure to deleate him and asked that he never contact me again." --Kenya C. Hicks

"A blind date with a rookie Sheriff? Off duty of course, ended up at some frog pond at dusk, didn't want to shoot his shot gun, but I did'nt kill any frogs; the force of the shot gun injured me, and the gun ended up in the pond! Barney Fife got p'off and left me there. To walk 4 miles to the main Hwy where I finally got a ride home. Worst Valentine's Day ever." --Betz Kimble

"This girl said she likes walking and since we lived in the same neighborhood I mention walking to the restaurant. She wanted to get picked up, so I did. She looked heavier than the pic and ate a big dinner plate and appetizer. I kept it cool until I dropped her off and we haven't talked since." --Leo Pals

"The date was going well! I just happened to glance at the credit card my date used to pay for dinner and drinks. There was a different name on it than the name he told me. He told me that he doesn't tell people his real name because he doesn't want to use it on facebook, because he had once gotten his identity stolen. Yeah right. I searched his real name and found he had two facebook pages. One for his friends and family (had pictures of a kid that looked just like him) and one with a fake name for all his women. Don't get any ideas guys. He got caught." --Sophia Nicole

"Two words: Chest Dandruff. Ewwwwwwwwwwwww."--Suz Martin

"I met a guy online, talked for a couple weeks, he asked me out to dinner. Took the train to his stop, we got in his car and drove to dinner (only 1/2 mile away!), parked and walked in the resturant. Sat down quickly, and we ordered each a glass of wine. Then he informed me that he would like to 'go dutch', shocked!, I said okay (I was so hungry, so I ordered excatly what I wanted). The date went down from there, he asked me my salary, student loan debt...and questions that you DON'T ask on a first date. After the rough touture of dinner, he walked me to train and tried to kiss me....I declined. On the train ride home, he texted me 'Wish you were snuggling with me on the couch watching the fireplace together'...that was the end of my online dating and ANY kind of communication between us." --Natalie Horbatko

"guy asks me to dinner, movie, and drinks afterwards, and that he would pick me at 7pm. 645 calls me and says can i pick him up, bc his car is not working. i say fine. we get to the restaurant, the bill comes and he says that he forgot his wallet, can i pay it for now and he will pay me back, in fact he states that i would have to pay for the whole entire evening. I pay for dinner, decline the movie and drinks, take him home, he asks me if i want to stay the night, i laughed and walked off, as i was walking away the cops pull up, and arrest him...harrass me for being with him all evening (because apparently they had been following us) and the cops almost take me to jail along with him...FAST FORWARD..3 years later i run into this same guy, apparently fresh out of prison, and he asked me if i wanted to try the date again, I walk away laughing again, however this time I am looking around to make sure the police was not about run up on us..OMG...worst date ever!" --LaShelle Newland-Jordan
