People From Around The World Share Terrible First Dates They've Witnessed
We've all been on nightmare first dates. I'm talking dates that make you wish it was socially acceptable to simply stand up in the middle of the restaurant and say: "I actually hate you. I am leaving forever now. Goodbye." Unfortunately, most people don't have the gall to walk out and are forced to run down the clock until the bill comes.
The only real upside is that these folks got to witness these horrible dates, and they went online to share the stories with all of us. We hope these stories make you laugh a little and remind you that everyone who puts themselves out there ends up having an awkward encounter or two. But it's worth the trial and error to finally find that special someone.
35. The chaperone
Work at a bubble tea restaurant right near a college. It's a nice hangout spot with dim lighting, comfortable furniture, and board games. A lot of first dates happen here. Probably the worst I've ever seen was this guy that looked somewhere between 17 and 19 years old who met up with this girl around the same age. They got teas and took a seat at a table and played a board game and talked.
His mother sat at the table next to him the entire time and just stared them down. It made me feel so bad for him, but the icing on the cake is when she goes up to them at 8:30 and tells them that it's time for the two of them, her and her son that is, to head home. The guy is visibly mad but says goodbye to her and follows his mom out.
Girl comes up to order another tea and I asked her about it. She was more than happy to fill me and the other girls in. This lady had essentially injected herself into the date, interrupting their conversation and critiquing her son's behavior.
