There are few things worse than a date that goes off the rails. The most you can hope for is that it gets wild quickly so you can nope the heck outta there and go on with your life. And on the bright side, you always have a great story to tell, right?
That's exactly what a recent AskReddit thread capitalized on: People's stories of escaping horrific dates. And boy, these stories really take the cake.
Actually, if we're being honest, they take the cake, light it on fire, sit on top of it, and then throw it into a lake.
Well, I ended up on a date with my cousin once. Noped right the f*** out after we found out.
I have a VERY large family. My grandparents had 43 brothers and sisters combined, I have 20 aunts and uncles from my mom’s side alone, all of which have a fuck ton of kids. I don’t know 99% of them because I didn’t grow up where my family is from. Moved back before college.
Anyway, I was on fall break one semester and was on hot or not (old school tinder), and matched with this super cute blonde. We exchanged numbers, texted a few days then later met up.
We went to this restaurant for lunch, got to talking about family, etc and she mentioned her mom. Weird, I have an aunt with that same name, and this girls last name. I ask about her aunt, she pulls out her phone and shows me a picture of her mom…standing beside my mom.
My asshole puckers a little and ask her who the woman beside her mom was(my mom). “Oh, that’s my aunt!”
I pull my phone out and show her a picture of me and mom, and her face is as pale as a ghost. We both kinda freaked out, and went our separate ways.
We’re super close now though, and we talk about it from time to time and laugh our asses off. She got married a year or so ago and the best man (her brother) brought it up when the pastor said “does anyone object to the wedding” thing. Got a kick out of it. – SensationalSavior
A few years back I lived in a triplex that was once a large house. My upstairs neighbour was a cute blonde. We were friendly and had chatted in passing in the shared laundry room. We started flirting a bit via text (she had my number with my permission from the landlord due to the fusebox for the whole house being in my unit) and she suggested we go out for drink.
Less than five minutes into our “date” she launched into a pyramid scheme pitch that she called “a great business opportunity.” Cheque please and I left. She was not happy. – Guardian83
I drove about 50 minutes to meet some guy from Tinder. When I got out of my car at the pub he had been waiting in the parking lot.
The first words out of his mouth were “So wanna suck it?”
NOT EVEN A HELLO! I didn’t say anything, got right back in my car and drive off. – gouramigirl
