The phrase, “First date” strikes terror into many a woman’s heart. In some respects having a root canal without any painkillers is preferable to a first date. Many of us would prefer to just jump to the third — or sixth date. Happily, many good first dates lend themselves to second, third and even tenth dates. Then there’s the flip side to the good first date–the really horrible one. At the time, they feel like the most mortifying experience on Earth. Later on, they become hilarious stories we tell our friends.
Read this roundup of now-funny (though at the time — horrendous) things guys have said to us on really, really, really and I do mean really, bad dates.
I was having a great dinner date with a guy. Just as we were about to order dessert, he says to me, “Are you looking for a serious relationship? Because I was kind of hoping for a No-Strings-Attached sort of thing.” I turned to the waiter. “Check please.”

This one isn’t a horror story by any means, but a guy once asked me as a total non-sequitur, “So why don’t you have a boyfriend, anyway?” In and of itself, it’s not a terribly offensive question; but something about the way it came out didn’t sit right. Rude? Blunt? Yep. Besides, isn’t asking that question one of the big no-nos of a first date? Ick.

During my dinner date he called his cousin to meet him for a drink afterwards. He said to me that he bought me a fruit tart and that was enough.
