The thread quickly went viral as women started sharing their absolute nightmare dates that had them running for the door. Here are some of the top-voted responses from users:
1."We were like 15 minutes into our date when he said (in exactly this order) that he likes to 'eat asses, lick feet, and if this is going to be serious, you really need to lose weight.' I wanted to leave the date as soon as he said that. When he suddenly demanded that I drive him home because he didn't have a car, I told him that my car wouldn't be able to move with two fatties in it, and drove home."
2."We met at a park for our first date, and he was definitely giving off weird vibes. Within a half hour, he asked if I’d give him a blow job. Right there in the middle of the park. I said no, there are people around and I just met you. His next idea was to go in the men’s bathroom, and asked if I’d do it there. I said, 'Sure, you go in, and I’ll follow a couple of minutes later so it doesn’t look suspicious.' Once he walked in the bathroom, I quickly found my car and left his horny ass."
6."He said, 'You agree that the man should be in charge, right?' On the first date. I told him we didn't need to waste more of each other's time. Of course he tried to pretend he was joking. I paid and left."
10."I went on a date with this guy who wouldn't ask me questions. I'd ask, 'Where are you from?' and he'd answer...and just look at me. And then I'd say, 'I'm from [here]!' This lasted for like 20 minutes before I made up an excuse and left."
12."He took his phone and called his ex. Then, while looking me straight in the eyes, he started telling her about how he was now dating someone much smarter and more beautiful than she was, how she was never worth it and her parents were losers, etc. I didn't know her, didn't know if she deserved such treatment, and certainly didn't want to be the next one treated that way."
16."I went out with a guy once, and things went really well. Afterward, we were sitting in my car talking, and I mentioned that my dad was gay. He told me that I 'should’ve disowned him.' I told him to get the fuck out of my car and never speak to me again :)."
17."Fifteen minutes in, he asked if I could see myself marrying him and having his kids. I said no, he finished his drink, I left the rest of mine, we said goodbye...and then ended up walking to the same parking lot together. Now I always make sure to loiter in the toilets after saying goodbye to avoid that!"
18."Arguing with his mom on speaker in the car on the way to the restaurant almost made me call off the date...answering the phone on speaker and, again, arguing with his mom on speaker while in the restaurant was what finally made me walk out. I was horrified."
And finally, there was this story with a happier ending than the rest...
19."A panic attack. It was a month after my dad died, and it suddenly hit me that I shouldn't be dating. I said I was going to the bathroom, ran to my car, and left. I messaged him and apologized, and he was super nice and understanding. And anyway, we're still together now."
