A date in B&Q’s car park? Oh, yes please…

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Contents -

We went to a party with a buf­fet, where my date (a per­sonal trainer) re­peat­edly slapped food out of my hand and said, “Don’t eat that. Think of the gym.” GE­OR­GIA, 24 It was a scorch­ing day and the soles of my bal­let pumps melted off as I walked through Lon­don with my date. I had to pre­tend noth­ing had hap­pened. ARIANNA, 23 While walk­ing me home, my date said he needed a wee. I of­fered him my bath­room, but he in­sisted it was ur­gent, un­did his zip­per and pro­ceeded to uri­nate in front of me. It all flowed down­hill, form­ing a pud­dle by my feet. LUCY, 22 MY DATE TOLD ME HIS SIS­TER WAS ALSO AT THE SAIL­ING COM­PE­TI­TION WE’D GONE TO WATCH AND ASKED IF SHE COULD COME OVER TO TAKE PHO­TOS OF US TO SEND TO THEIR FAM­ILY WHAT­SAPP GROUP. KATE, 28 He wanted to do some­thing ‘quirky’ and took me to a choir prac­tice, de­spite nei­ther of us be­ing mem­bers or me ever hav­ing ex­pressed an in­ter­est in singing. It was the last re­hearsal be­fore their ‘big per­for­mance’ and no­body seemed par­tic­u­larly pleased to see us. EL­IZ­A­BETH, 26 AS I JUMPED IN THE CAR, MY DATE SAID WE WERE HEAD­ING TO A SUR­PRISE. I WAS IMAG­IN­ING A RO­MAN­TIC PIC­NIC OR SOME­THING… UN­TIL WE PICKED UP HIS BEST MATE AND DROVE TO A B&Q CAR PARK. WE LIS­TENED TO MU­SIC FOR TWO HOURS, THEN I WALKED HOME. GE­OR­GIA, 21 I waited out­side the cin­ema in the rain for an hour, un­til my date mes­saged me say­ing, ‘Bit wet to leave the house to­day.’

ROSIE, 22 A month into dat­ing, it was my birth­day. Over din­ner, he pre­sented me with some per­fume and said, “Thought you’d like this – I used to buy it for my ex all the time.”

LAURA, 27 ✱
