[Link Removed] features 52 first-person stories of dates gone horribly wrong, including a 46-year-old woman whose blind date never even got out of his car, shouting "I can't find parking, and I'm not attracted to you!" before speeding away.

I’ll bet Fab40 readers have plenty of datig horror stories of their own.

    • My blind date saw me at a cookout for a mutual couple (I am friends with the wife and he worked with husband)  He couldn’t work up the courage to talked to me but talked the couple into giving my phone # over.  We talked a couple of times then agreed to meet for dinner.  He lives about 30 minutes from me so we agreed to meet at the restaurant.  I hadn’t been there before so he gave me directions (before Mapquest was standard).  He told me to turn right when I should have turned left after exiting the freeway.  I got lost and stopped for directions then called the restaurant to tell him I was not bailing but on my way.  He had been sitting in the bar, drinking on an empty stomach thinking I had backed out when I was 20 min late.  The restaurant was Melting Pot - expensive and a little too romantic for a first date.  then found out it was a 2 hour meal - another red flag.  He was really nervous and talking non stop after we picked dinner items. He starts telling me about his messy divorce 2 years prior (wife ran off with her rich older boss and took him to the cleaners) Bigger red flag Before we have finished the fondue appetizer,he lays his hand on mine looks me in the eye and says “I know you have been single for a while and I want to tell you I am there for you.”  I thank him but not sure why he is saying this - he tells me “Glen tells me you have been single for a while and I know how lonely it is.  My ex tells me I was great in bed and I want to do anything I can to please you sexually“.  I slowly pull my hand away and tell him thanks but no thanks and maybe I should go.  He starts apologizing and begs me to stay and at least finish dinner and maybe we can get to know each other better in positive way.  It was the most painful 1 1/2 hr dinner.  No matter what topic we tried to cover - it was strained.  He wanted to have kids, I had a hysterectomy 1 year prior due to fibroid tumors, he wanted his future wife to stay home - not an option for me, he loved NASCAR - I am not a fan but don’t hate it and he travels nationwide to see races with his buddies.  And he kept drinking, though slowly but I couldn’t as I saw this being a quick exit.  As soon as he was paying the check, I told him thanks for dinner and sorry we didn’t click.  I practically ran for the door.  It was on the second floor and I ran as fast as i could down the stairs so no awkward kiss would be required.  He caught me in the parking lot as I was backing out.  I rolled the window down about inch and thanked him again.  He tried to call me back the next day but I just couldn’t get past it.

    • @Wookiemom09 that sounds like a date from hell ....
      I do remember a string of just drinks dates years ago when they found out I was a single parent they thought it was a green light that I had sex on first dates .... and were quite rude when I said NO loud and clear

    • Hysterical! If, God forbid, anything ever happened to my husband, or if we were to divorce, I don’t think I could do the dating scene again! I think I would probably just sit at home with my dogs, and read a good book!

    • Sad part - my couple friends say they had no idea he would be like that and was always a nice guy that they knew of.  He tried to call and wanted a second date but I couldn’t do it.  Now he is remarried and I am -to other people.  He said it was the alcohol and empty stomach with nerves and first “real” date since his divorce.  

      UK Girl - you are right - men feel like they are willing to be “helpful” and provide service as needed for lonely women.  I am just glad he didn’t feel like I “owed” him for the expensive meal.
