Just curious. Also these don't have to be bad overall dates, just talking about single actions.

Mine is pretty mild. The worst I can think of is this one girl who yawned two times without covering her mouth. They were like exaggerated yawns that you would imagine a stand up comedian would do to show when someone is being obnoxious. She didn't apologize or anything after either and the date still went on about 30 minutes after the first one. I tried not to draw attention to it and just looked away both times without commenting.

I admit I'm not the most interesting person in the world, but I'm not THAT boring. I haven't had this problem before or since.

In college, one of my best friends had a guy pick her up at our dorm. A few minutes after they left, she came walking back in the room.

We were all like, "What happened??!" She said he had showed up for their first date with a dip in his mouth.

Hmm... there were dates where I wasn't feeling any chemistry or wasn't interested, but can't think of a single "worst" act or anything that totally turned me off.

There was one date who got out of his car to approach me and kissed me without really saying a word, and not just a peck or anything. I wasn't like "Oh my bob! Ew!" I was just really surprised.

But, a lot of dates told me their interesting stories.

One guy said when he showed up to meet a date she revealed she was, like, 8 months pregnant. And another where the woman got super drunk during lunch and didn't have money for a cab. Others where they displayed poor manners or used their phone during the date.

And lots of "She didn't look like her pictures!" dates. Those seemed to be pretty common experiences.

I had a guy blow his nose at the table during dinner. That grossed me out and I never went out with him again.

On a first date I had one that punched a fella in a pub as he accidentally stood on her toe!!

I've never been so scared to tell a girl I didn't want to see her again!!! 😱😂

I went on a first meet and I was running a little late, about 10 minutes. He beat me to the coffee shop and had settled into a table. I grabbed some coffee and found him at the table. He was busy working on his computer and stuff. I noticed one of those travel mug things on the table.

A few minutes after I sat down, he got up to get more tea. He then explained to me, that he just goes to coffeeshops and asks for hot water and bring his own tea so he can use their wifi and not buy anything.

I immediately realized we are not compatible, as he is one of those seat hogs that doesn't patronize the business. And this really bothers me even more in an indie coffee shop. And yes, that means he is extraordinarily cheap.

I stayed for a little while longer, and as we were leaving we parted ways. I headed to the bus stop, as I lived about 2 miles away. He was like "why don't you save your money and walk."

You did not see this guy again, did you? Please say no!

This is pretty bad. I used to study at a Starbucks and always bought something (which ended up not being consumed half the time) before sitting down. To me, it was like rent for the space for that time period.

I agree, I always buy something. At Starbucks I'll buy one thing the whole time, mostly because I feel like I have been enough without hogging the space and they don't need my revenue. At an indie place, I'll buy at least 1 thing per hour, because I want the indie place to stay open.

No. And he was just shocked. He thought the date went so well! Meanwhile I was just trying to hide my shock.

Not to mention he was just weird. He kept asking me if I liked being tickled. Like more than a few times. One time is probably weird. 4 or 5 is cuckoo.

That's a high class guy right there.
