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.

KIRSTY, 35

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.

GABBY, 21
