Bad dating expieriences
Side note, he had greeted me with a ‘you look like your photos! or replying to future texts.” –Casey, 28, San Francisco “My first Tinder meet-up also happened to be my first date after a shattering breakup, and I felt all kinds of badass for finally getting back out there.
I was already into this guy—his pictures were cute and the texting was good.
It was literally the only date I’ve ever been on where I’ve had no more than one drink.
The highlight of the evening was him telling me about a year in his early 20s where he was recovering from a car accident and took up a side job as a private detective for six months.
Awkward.” –Kate, 28, London “I was 45 minutes late to a first date because a kid literally got murdered for his bike along the bus route I was on.We spent the first hour date catching up, and then all of a sudden he got really serious and started taking me through his murky family health history: diabetes, cancer alcoholism, and mental illnesses of all kinds.When I asked him why he was telling me all this, he said, ‘Well, if we have kids someday, it’s best you know all of this now.’ KIDS?When I showed up to the bar he’d chosen, he was already pretty plastered. Finally, I managed to get small talk going and it came up that I have a short list of things that make me instantly not trust someone: If you don’t like pizza; if you wear socks to bed every night; if a mustache is your only facial hair; and if you don’t like dogs.Then he said, ‘Would this be a bad time to mention I hate dogs? This isn’t going to work.’ And I got up and left.” –Cynthia, 26, Brooklyn “I went on a random Tinder date with a guy whom I had little to no chat with beforehand.
