WORST DATES Just.so.bad
Hey, we’ve all been there…
One date texted me to say he’d put a watch in my bag, so I’d ‘have to see him again, to give it back.’ He said he’d call the police if I didn’t, so I had a mate return it in a drive-by fashion. So. Bizarre. BECKY, 25
He corrected me on the ingredients I used at a cocktail party, visibly flinched when I said I like Wetherspoons, and asked, “What on earth is a Woo Woo?” He wasn’t for me. ALEXANDRA, 29
After claiming to be 6ft 3in, he turned out to be 6ft 7in, and repeatedly told me he could see the dandruff on my scalp when he looked down to talk to me. ELLIE, 25
We went to the local shopping centre before the cinema. I wandered off, and when I returned, I found my date at the till making a purchase. When I asked what he’d got, his reply was, “I bought a knife! And now I feel complete.” I legged it after the film. MAISIE-JANE, 28
After a few dates, we agreed to be friends. He then sent me a link to an article titled ‘How to find a partner’. The crux? ‘You’re too desperate.’ BETH, 25
I WAS TWO GLASSES OF WINE IN WHEN MY DATE SAID, “I MADE A VOW TO GOD AGED 11 TO NEVER DRINK ALCOHOL.” HE THEN QUOTED BIBLE VERSES AT ME. JENNI, 25
My date pocketed the tip I left for our friendly waitress, as he felt she ‘didn’t deserve it’. When I asked for it back, he said no because he’d just bought me a drink. FENELLA, 30
My ‘tall, dark and handsome’ date was short, blonde, homophobic and told me that all Scots ‘have a chip on their shoulder.’ I’m Scottish. He’s a dick.
The morning after we first had sex, his dad called. My date picked up and said, “I’m in bed with a hot blonde. Fancy a chat?” then proceeded to hand over the phone.
