First dates are the epitome of a win-lose situation: They're either brilliant, or just plain weird.
If they do turn out weird though, at least you've got an entertaining story to tell.
People have posted to Whisper to share the moment they realised their date was going to become nothing more than a dinner party anecdote:
1. The weird skin guy
He kept complimenting my skin. Like four + times, he interrupted to tell me I have great skin. I felt like I was on a date with Buffalo Bill.
2. From normal to extraterrestrial
He was so good looking and “normal” until we went back to his place, where he told me the aliens were giving him signals that were telling him my alien name and true alien identity.
3. The broody guy
He touched my stomach and said “The place of my future children”. There was no second date.
4. Small-talk gone dark
When he said “Oh no we are walking down a dark street… What if I kidnap you for ever”.
5. The stalker
When he said he liked the flowers on my windowsill and has never been to my house.
6. The goodnight kiss
He told me I reminded him of his sister… After he kissed me goodnight.
7. The 100-miles-an-hour guy
Being called his new girlfriend five minutes into the first date.
8. The all-rounder
His jeans completely covered his shoes. He paid for a photo of us “For our grandchildren”. He told me the movie started three hours earlier than it did. F**king weird guy. Kissed me on my nose.
9. Never 'meating' again
He said, “If you were my daughter I would force you to eat meat”. I’m a vegetarian. We were friends for five years before that date. First date he wanted to change me. Forcefully.
10. The guy who somehow made it through the first date
Asked if I liked to be choked during sex in public, on the second date.
11. The one-man show
He started talking through his hand like a puppet.
12. The 200-mile-an-hour guy
He said “I love you”. It was our first date and we barely knew each other.
13. The creepiest moment in history
A guy cutting his fingernails while smiling, then saying, “I’m getting ready for later”.
Almost makes you want to give up on dating all together, right?
