What was your best/worst dating experience? DATING

  • View author's info Author posted on Jul 07, 2005 16:30


    I just got stood up! I finally decided to go out on a date with this guy I met via the internet and I got stood up. This is the first time I've ever been stood up. It was very embarrassing! But not more so than that one time I was nervously fidgeting and accidently shot that spoonful of vanilla ice cream across the table and right between my dates eyeballs. >.< D'oh

    So, it has been a while since I posted in the forums. More than a few months actually. I returned about a week ago and this hottie messages me out of the blue. So, I'm finding myself involved in a long distance relationship. Something I never saw myself doing again, but I have a gut feeling that this one is worth it. (Regardless of him being a hottie!)

    So, where have I been the last few months? Well, this site really wasn't working for me. So, I started dating locally. The horror stories I could produce in morbid detail! lol

    On one date with a partcular gentleman, we made the mutual decision to go to a crab house. Needless to say while we feasted on the sweet, succulent meat, I happened to crack a shell and a small piece of it turned into a nearly blinding projectile. It was quite embarrassing. I'm not sure what it is with me and accidently turning food into projectiles. It's completely unintentional.

    Another date, with a different individual turned out quite the eye opening adventure. His wife showed up. END STORY.

    Of course there have been a few other dates, but not one so memorable as the fellow who picked the scabs off ofhis arms and ate them while we were having dinner. I had to excuse myself several times. When he noticed I wasn't eating, he inquired about my appetite and I explained that I had lost it earlier on in the evening. I excused myself a shortwhile later due to illness.

    All in all I've been on quite the adventure. I hope that everything with this new fellow pans out. He seems very sincere, a girl can really appreciate that. I'll keep the forums posted on my progress.

    Wishing all of you the best in all your endeavors.

    Rejection always hurts. But why settle for a person who disrespects you from the get go. Lose the loser. And network where the men hang out. Barbar shops, men hang outs. For me its 12 step meetings. Men who have same viewpoints on God or a spiritual relationship is a must for me. Selp heal and be ready for whenever it happens. I've had my share of being stood up and rejection. If it doesn't kill you it makes you a little wiser. Hopefully...Peace and Love. Deelilah90605.

    My worst experience was actually after a first date with someone i'd met off the net. We went out for lunch and had a great time and got pretty ok. I'd been let down in the past by the old "I'll give you a call" line so I'd asked this guy to tell me if I wasn't his type. We arranged to go out a few days later but hadn't heard anything from him by the morning of our 'second' date. I txt him to find out what was going on for him to reply that he didn't think I was attractive and that he'd made a mistake. Needless to say I don't ask people to tell me if they are not into me, i just get the hint :)

    Anyone also had non-dates?

    I arranged to meet someone about a year ago, we'd been chatting a while and everything seemed okay. I booked a rail ticket to go and see her and she calls me the night before I'm due to travel to say "sorry I can't meet you, got some stuff to sort out" and offered no explanation whatsoever. The same person then tried to say that it was ME who had bailed out!!!!!!

    Some very weird people about......

    Was asked out on a date Saturday night and was stood up, this time by a different individual. D'oh! Do you guys realize the effort some women go to in order to make these dates? Hiring babysitters, getting our hair and/or nails done, digging in the closet to find something nice to wear and when nothing comes up, going shopping to find the right outfit with the matching shoes to wear? Not that I don't do these things for myself often enough...but still, man what a waste of my time and energy. Not that I'm giving up. But goodness sakes. I'm not a viper. I won't bite...(hard anyways.)

    By far, my worst date was one that my mother fixed me up on. We met and went out to dinner and he was so rude to the waitress (a huge turnoff). Then after dinner we went to leave and he had parked on a hill and I am only 5'1" and found it difficult to get into his truck. Being the "gentleman" that he was he decided to help me by grabbing my rear and pushing me into the truck. He pushed so hard that I went flying into the seat and hit my head really hard off the driver's side door.

    I thought he was very forward to grab my rear without my permission and then to shove me so hard ... really put a damper on the date.

    I never did go out with him again. I think he viewed the rear grabbing as fore play. :)

    Is it sad to say ive never actually *had* a date? ever? Can i just sum up the entire two years with my (one and only) ex as downright horrid?
    just one word to make it all make sense: Oedipus
    *shudder*

    You name it, it's happened to me. I've been stood up, went to see a movie on a first date with a guy who got up 10 minutes before the end and left - never to come back (which wouldn't have been so bad but it was HIS choice of movie)! I've been on dates with guys I WISH had stood me up. I'm still looking for that one guy that I know is out there and that will be the date I've been waiting for.

    Reading this now makes me feel alot better, feel "stupid" but better. I have just been stood up. We had e-mailed and talked on the phone. We were to meet at 7:15pm he phoned my cell around 7:25 and asked "were are you" I told him were I was standing my the resturant entrance. as I did this a "car" drove by and I still swear it was him, he had sent me a picture. He said he was only a few min. away stuck at a light. well at 9:15 and two messages to his cell, one stating that if this was all a big joke hope he had a good laugh at making the "fat girl" stand there. I had already left by 7:45 after calling and getting only an answering machine on his cell. At least there was a Wendys close by, and I had my own money on me. so now I have had one see my photo and not get back to me until I gave him the "out" by stating to email me and just say we don't have much in common. which he did after over 4 mo of e-mails and some phone calls and him stating that size did not matter and he really did want to meet me. Makes you wonder if there really is a "gentleman" out there that means what he says and says what he means. OK done with the pitty party now, feel better. pulling up my boot straps and forging on into the world. LOL LOL LOL

    Well I can understand why you've never been stood up before. You're a cutie!


    Thanks artw45! *HUG* You're a sweetie! As for the individual that didn't want to work...it takes two to make a thing go right. That's just frickin' lazy in my book. I work (hard) for the things I have, so I respect and take care of them more so. That's just very lame. I'm a single mom with two kids working two jobs to make ends meet. I don't have a significant other. (Thier dad is a deadbeat!) So I do what I have to do. I guess it just takes a strong person. Glad the red flags went up all around that relationship.

    Keep the faith!

    When I was in my teens, my best bud's girlfriend set me up with her sister! We had a nice meal, then went out for a few drinks! We were there for a couple of hours, until I returned from the bathroom, but she was not there. I thought she had went to the bathroom, until a little too much time had passed by. I asked the couple at the table next to me, on where my date had went. They said she left with this scruffy looking guy, and that was not it, they also took the little change that was on the table. Must have went to McDonald's for a hamburger!

    Hmm.. I think I can add a couple to this...one from LONG ago, and one not so long ago.

    In high school, I went out on a date with a guy I'd been friends with for a few years. At the end of the date, we made out in the car for almost an hour before he said, "You know we can't be like this in school tomorrow - I'm going steady with Kate" - I said some not so nice words and left the car, never spoke to him again. Couldn't believe he had the nerve to do that.

    Last year, I was dating someone pretty steadily. Our first date, he asked where I wanted to go to eat. I was low-carbing (and am again, now), so I said Applebees would be good - they had a good low-carb menu at the time. All through the meal, after the meal, and on the way home, and even the next day, all I heard was how expensive it was, and he'd never been there and wouldn't go back..yadda yadda yadda...
    ad nauseum. The rest of the time we were together, he took me to eat once or twice a week for lunch...at a local chinese place...because he could get 2 for 1 coupons out of the newspaper. I'm not high-maintenance and don't need the expensive stuff but I can't stand a cheapskate that won't splurge even once in a while!


    Applebee's is not that expensive! Man, what a cheapskate. I guess he's never been to Olive Garden, Kyoto's Japanese Steakhouse or California Dreamin'. WHEW! Shame. Glad you didn't waste any time on that one. It's ok to be concerned about finances, at least in my book. (But that's what budgets are for!) I would have had choice words with that man.

    Grrr...

    Worst date, when that "woman" told me she couldn't see me again as I was "too fat".

    Second worst date, was a second date actually. I'd met a woman a few years ago we had a good time and agreed to meet at a club the next weekend. Well she got really drunk and started snogging(making out) with this other guy on the dancefloor while I was at the bar getting drinks!!! :(

    In the words of Rodney Dangerfield "I don't get no respect"!

    Good dates....hmmm....what are they? :)

    Take Care

    My favorite date story -to me, more entertaining than torrid. Will definitely make it into my memoirs:

    -discovered that I got fake named
    At this point I decided to ride it out - might as well be a sheep as a lamb - and I figured the stories would be priceless...but I didn't want to lead him on either - slippy slope for sure.
    -he took me to the legion and he's never been in the military where even the bartender had to walk away to hide the snicker at his "hug 'n tug" reply to my massage therapy career - then pointed out another lady who "wanted him but he wouldn't get with because she had a face like a racehorse" I don't know wtf that meant
    -he stopped to pee on the side of the road and left the door open. So I could see? who knows. omg
    -took me to the harbour to see some boats that he'd worked on, where "she" was the only introduction I got to the guys he talked to - and I nearly froze my ar$e off and he tried to get in my pants.
    -drunk dialed me hours later the same frickin night asking "what do you think of an 8" peni$?" which was actually a seguay to "spit or swallow?" I'd finally had enough and am eternally greatful for caller ID.

    Oh yeah - he was charming all right.
