WORST DATES EVER A date who thinks we’re sort of pretty… from very far away. No, thanks
Hey, we’ve all been there…
We went for drinks, then dinner. At the restaurant, he realised he’d left his laptop bag in the pub and started freaking out. He cried, then called the bar repeatedly until they picked up and told him it was still there. APRIL, 25 My date declared that “Hitler wasn’t actually such a bad guy”, and “if he hadn’t lost the war, he’d be a national hero”. MAGGI, 22 He cancelled on me 10 minutes before our date because his granddad was sick. Weeks later, we finally met and were talking about past dates. He said that he’d never stood anyone up, but had made excuses not to go... such as his granddad being ill. GABRIELLA, 25 Pre-date, he texted asking if I was on birth control because “Daddy has an impregnation fetish”. HE RETURNED FROM THE TOILET, PUSHED MY HAIR BACK AND GRUNTED, “YOU SORT OF LOOK LIKE A MODEL… FROM FAR AWAY.” SOPHIE, 30
He cancelled our dinner, suggesting we go for drinks with his female friend instead. At the bar, he told me to buy her a drink, kissed her, then said, “We’re all going to have a good time tonight.” I left immediately.
AISHA, 27 I DROVE US TO A RUGBY MATCH, BUT MY DATE WAS SO HUNGOVER, I HAD TO STOP THE CAR SO HE COULD VOMIT. HE THEN ASKED TO BE DROPPED AT A FRIEND’S HOUSE SO HE COULD CARRY ON DRINKING. I WENT TO THE GAME WITH MY EX INSTEAD. MADISON, 22 The day after our date, I messaged to tell him we should just be friends. His reply? “We’ll see,” followed by three skull emojis. He pulled out my Tinder profile and started comparing my photos to my face, telling me how the lighting made my features look different.
