You Know You’re on a Bad Date When…
Real guys and girls share the moment they realized they were on a bad date.
It’s happened to all of us. You spend days getting ready for your date with a new guy. You pick the perfect pretty-but-sexy-but-demure-but-hip-but-not-too-hip ensemble. You manage to shave your legs AND paint your toes. You research schools for the children you’ll surely conceive with this man down the road, once you’ve remodeled your dream house together.
But somewhere between that first hello and the bridal veil, you find yourself crying in the ladies’ room, thanking God you don’t have to drive home with this loser, much less create offspring with him.
When did it all go so wrong?
There’s a sinking moment during every bad date when you find yourself plummeting over the This Sucks Falls. We asked guys and girls from around the country to tell us the exact moment they knew they were on a really bad date.
Let the following serve as a warning to you. If you encounter any of these bad date disasters, take solace in the fact that the worse the date, the better the story in the morning.
You know it’s a bad date when…
1. Your date uses you as a taxi service.
“I knew I was on a bad date when he asked me to drive and then wanted to stop at FedEx to drop something off. On a FIRST date,” a young woman from Hawaii told BettyConfidential.
But apparently, things could have been much worse. A man from Ireland shared this shocking but hysterical true tale from his teen years:
“I’m 17, on the first date and she tells me she has a kid, a cyst on her womb and needs a ride to the hospital the next day for tests. I respond by faking a car crash involving my aunt by having a friend in the same pub fake-call my mobile and offer to drop her home on the way to the ER.” When asked to clarify is this all really happened, he added proudly, “I have nothing to gain by lying here.”
