    I was 15 she was 16. We went out to lunch

    after a long day of finals. During lunch I went to grab her hand and I hit a spoon. The spoon had food on it and got all over her shirt. She surprisingly went out with me again, but needless to say not out to eat.

    My date lied about his height.

    He turned out to be considerably shorter than what he had told me. His eyes reached my neck. I like men that are taller than me. That's not my problem here, it's that he lied. Marched straight back into my house.

    Really Bad First Date

    Ok last night was horrible. It was a guy I met online here on EP. He seemed fine on here. Not a member of crazy groups. So I figured what the hell right? Oh it was so wrong. He picked me up at my house and as I came down the stairs I could see him flirting with my 16 year old...

    Actually, I always had decent dates.

    ... Until last night. It was pretty bad... I was nervous and I would say silly things and laugh a lot and the he would look at me in this perturbed way and it would make me more nervous so I would laugh more. At least I got a free meal out of it??? I don't know... We ended the...

    My first kiss was with a dude.

    So this story starts off bad. I was dating a guy a bit older than me and we had gone to the movies with at least eight friends to see a horror film. At the the scariest part, my hand flew up and I hit him in the face. Oops. Then he tried to kiss me at the end and it was the...

    Just came back from the worst date ever.

    She shows up at the mall, 3 hours late, with her friends. She met up with me, bought a bunch of stuff (spent all my money) then gave me a hug and left. She won't call or text me, she only said "hi" and "bye" and now I'm broke and some girl just made off with a lot of stuff

    A friend set me up with a date,

    said he was exactly my type, that we'd hit it off, etc, etc. What a disaster. He tried to order for me, frowned when I insisted on ordering for myself, frowned at what I ordered, lectured me on sustainable food, frowned when I ordered wine... and on it went. Ninety minutes of...

    I've wanted to go on this date with this guy

    for the longest time. We finally go and he is so touchy feely, controlling, and was treating me like I was 4. Like excuse me sir, are you lost ? After our movie finished I had him drive me home because I didn't want to be around him any longer. As he tried kissing me goodnight I...

    with a guy I met online, he turned out to be 5 inches shorter than me (I'm 5'2") and the entire time kept talking about the "blue butterflies in his stomach". He introduced me to his mom on our first date who must have been high on meds, because she looked at me all glazed over...

    So over the weekend I had a bad Tinder date.

    About a week ago I began messaging a guy on tinder who seemed to be normal. I am new to the app and was probably talking to about 6 other eligible bachelors at once. This guy seemed to stand out and since we chatted so much on the app, I decided to give him my number when he...

    I also had another date with a guy

    who sent me a picture of when he was young. When he met me for the first time, I lost my appetite completely. He had many wrinkles and he had some missing teeth and the teeth he did have were all shades of brown, black, and gray.

    Blind date turns out to be considerably older.

    Shows up wearing tight white jeans (before guys started wearing skinny jeans...this was in the 90's) and he had a big brown stain on his butt. I assume he sat in chocolate or something like that but it was pretty awkward none the less. We go to dinner, he excuses himself to...
