‘He gave me these gross pur­ple hick­ies’

Turns out a lob­ster din­ner isn’t al­ways as ro­man­tic as it may seem…

‘I met a guy and went to his house to Net­flix and chill. He said, “We should try some­thing dif­fer­ent,” so I agreed. Then he poured can­dle wax on me, say­ing, “It’s kind of like lube.” It’s not, though. I left and never talked to him again. So odd!’ – MADDIE, 21

‘My date shamed me for or­der­ing a sweet cock­tail be­cause he was drink­ing straight te­quila. Then he asked if I wanted to get food, so we went out­side and he tried to kiss me. I pulled away and told him we weren’t there yet. He asked if I still wanted to get food, and for some rea­son, I said yes. All of a sud­den, he blurted, “Oh, I got a text. I have to go.” The guy didn’t have his phone on him.’ – SARAH, 29

‘This guy asked me to go hik­ing, fol­lowed by din­ner. We went to a lo­cal trail, and on our way down, I chose a steep short­cut. He was ner­vous, but I in­sisted since it would be faster. I tripped and rolled down the side of the moun­tain! I hit bushes and rocks the whole way, fi­nally land­ing in a big bush. He was star­ing down at me with his hands over his mouth. “Are you OK?!” he yelled. I looked at my bleed­ing knees and yelled back that I was good. I sat there bleed­ing as he made his slow way down. He had to carry me to the restau­rant, where he asked the waiter for Band­Aids.’ – ADDI, 21

‘This dude picked me up on his moped and took me back to his place. His idea of a ro­man­tic date was to watch a doc­u­men­tary about mar­i­juana, then tell me how he’s on probation for smok­ing weed. I made out with him later, and he gave me these gross pur­ple hick­ies. What a weirdo.’ – ARI, 20

‘I went to din­ner with a man I had just met. All dur­ing the meal, he talked about how much money he makes, how wealthy his family is, and how he’s ap­par­ently “so good with girls”. He or­dered the cheap­est glass of wine for me and got him­self one of the most ex­pen­sive cock­tails. He then or­dered steak and lob­ster for him­self and a side salad for me. So rude.’ –
