In the course of a year, she gained a few sizes. Her life began to implode- she broke up with her boyfriend, went through the ringer of online dating as a fat middle-aged straight woman Friend of a friend met a girl online, they chatted for a while, and she made plans to visit him. When she go there, she was apparently a huge drag: boring, didn't want to do anything, and This may not be considered a horror story but I am telling it anyways because it was horrifying to me LOL - I met a guy online and we chatted for almost a month before we actually went on I'd rather see one for online positive stories. Online dating horror stories are everywhere, yet I used online dating for years and had mostly positive experiences, 2 out of the 4 serious BEST: current SO. I initially wasn't even all that into meeting him because I was burned out on online dating, but I went anyway for "a" drink. Obviously, he changed my mind. WORST: Guy ... read more
Upon further inspection, what I was seeing was the tip of a stick. Some gloves, towels and BBQ tongues later I pulled out approximately 3 foot of stick from my toilet that had broke off, followed by several other stick fragments. Dude had broke several sticks. I heard my door open and close so much, because he was going outside to look for a stick, one would break, he'd go get another.
Dude had left drippy poop water stains all over my bathroom floor. After work that day, I went straight to the store and bought a plunger. From amijohnsnow : "A chick said she was having a 'work party' at her house and I should come over. Went to her place and noticed more than half of the people were younger , while I was 21 and the girl was also Then they gathered everyone in the living room and proceed to talk about the job.
Turns out it was one of those pyramid scheme recruiting gatherings. I just sat there drinking my beer only one drinking for 2 hours because I thought it was rude to leave because they were telling sob stories and saying how much this 'job' had helped them. Sat there listening to some 'head of the group guy' saying how we can make millions in a short amount of time. Saying bullshit like, 'You see my BMW 3 Series out front? Never went to 'work parties' for a Tinder date again.
We had a pretty good connection so we decided to have dinner as well. After having a few drinks one thing lead to another and ended up back at my place, we hooked up and went to sleep.
I asked her if everything is alright, she said yes and got back into bed I thought, little creepy, but probably nothing to worry abou t. At the time, I was like, damn, I must just be a stallion. From coyoteaparty : "Went on a date after talking to this guy for a few weeks and I told him I was thinking of getting my nose pierced but was afraid it would hurt.
We are walking through a park in broad daylight and this dude takes a safety pin out of his pocket and fucking jams it through his nostril. Blood pours down his face.
He laughs and says, 'See? No big deal. From whcaepeachy : "Talked to him for two weeks before we went out and no red flags so we ended up going out to dinner. I said I hadn't been out in a while because I was trying to save money for a washer and dryer.
He told me instead of saving for that I should save for a boob job. I didn't even know how to reply so he followed up with, 'No it's not a bad thing, my sister and Mom both had small tits and got boob jobs and they look amazing. I just got up and left. I have a really irrational fear of people touching my feet so I ran the hell out of there anyway I get to the living room on the way out and it turns out to be his parents house and I look at his mother and see she was my old therapist.
From everythjngbagel : " After hanging out a few times I went over to her place and we hooked up. It was pretty great except that I forgot in her bio that she was fluent in German It was so unexpected and I was terrified.
After the bartender left I asked how she knew him, and she told me that he was her ex-husband. From PBandJAMM : "I have a chipped tooth in the back and ended up slicing this guy's dick open from it..
blood everywhere.. he took off pretty quickly after that I deleted my Tinder account shortly after. From 20thHokage : "I matched with this super cute girl on Tinder. We messaged back and forth for a few days. She told me to walk in and look for a women in a red dress. I double checked everything: Hair? Nothing in my teeth? So I get down and walk into the restaurant and I started looking for her. From Rickrickrickrickrick : "Met at a Starbucks.
She told me she was vegan and that she was cool that I'm not. I order a coffee with cream in it and she screams at the top of her lungs, in the crowded Starbucks, that I'm a cow murderer. I just paid for my stuff and left.
She looked nothing like her pictures, but I thought I should be nice and at least hang out with her for a bit. We went to her place and the entire house reeked like cat pee. Like saturated. Then as she proceeded to show me her massive collection of animal tail butt plugs, she screamed at her chihuahua and smacked it right on the nose and without missing a beat just asks if I want to make out on the couch.
I awkwardly sat down and pretended to look at my phone and made up that my grandma was dying so I could gtfo. From amym : "Matched with my bff's fiance after the engagement party. Screen shots of everything and lost my bff because I don't play that. I was uninvited to the wedding. Marriage lasted 18 months. So I started using Tinder to go on dates to fill that void It used to be a bit taboo to meet up with people from the internet because it was considered dangerous.
While it's still best to let someone know where you're going to be just in case you need some backup, it's generally considered pretty safe to meet up with a stranger for a cup of coffee or a drink.
I personally know a few people who have met their long-term partners or even their spouses online, but that doesn't mean that these online meet-ups don't also sometimes go off the rails. These 10 online dating attempts were shared by Reddit users whose experiences did not go as planned. Do you know anyone who's gone on a terrible online date? Please SHARE with family and friends to see if they can add to this list!
Thumbnail source: YouTube. She only wanted to communicate through email or the dating site, which I thought was odd but just went with it. Every bush movement and twig snap I was sure was him. Spent a few long hours filling out their personality assessment stuff, trying to be as honest as possible. She's smart, pretty, and they share mutual interests. Eventually he asked if I'd like to see his flat and I said yes. I arrived on the date, all happy, but realized that the girl who sat was a year old lady with two children and was just finding an excuse to leave her house.
She is attractive, fun. Lots of things in common. During the date she keeps checking her phone and acts annoyed by someone. Finally she apologizes for it and tells me about some creepo stalker dude that wont leave her alone. And I guess to prove it she calls him and kinda loudly says 'stop contacting me or I will call the police! Then outside before she gets in her car she goes in for a long passionate kiss. Then says 'Call me' and winks! No answer.
Text the next day, no answer. Call in 2 days and finally she answered the phone and says kinda loudly 'stop contacting me or I am calling the police! A few weeks in, he told me I was almost perfect, except my upper arms were fat.
I think he meant it as a compliment, but the 2nd part was all I heard. So I'm on the site just messaging a few random girls and start talking to this girl that seemed pretty nice.
Anyone who has ever used a dating app should know that the odds of actually having a good date are fairly slim. In fact, being on a dating app for a long time more or less guarantees that, at some point, you will have a truly awful date. Or, in some cases, a truly horrifying date. In a recent Reddit thread, people shared their dating horror stories. And although none of them are bad enough to scare you off from dating for life, they'll make you thankful for all of the good dates you've been on.
He was like, 'it feels really warm in my underwear for some reason. He ran into the bathroom and said he'd be free balling the rest of the night. It was like pulling teeth to talk with him.
I try to talk about travel — 'I don't see why anyone would ever want to leave the US. So I tell him about how my brother just purchased an Aston Martin. I really only like Camaros. but really, all I said was that I drove a Camaro from age Then, to top in off, he starts talking about No Fap and how he tried that but it just made him angry, so he followed strict ' masturbate once every three days' policy. He said it gave him sizeable loads without affecting his mood. I jokingly ask if he masturbated today.
He says yes. I ask if he washed his hands. He hesitates. I smile and say bye, leaving his hand hanging out there. By the time I get home, he has deleted me from Tinder. I had to wake this kid up at noon and be like OK, I have to get ready for work, you need to leave.
So he started to get dressed and couldn't find one sock. HE ACCUSED ME OF STEALING IT. He searched through all my drawers and dumped out my dirty clothes hamper looking for it. I ended up finding it weeks later in my sock drawer. I kind of think he planted it there, but I'm not sure why. So he finally starts to leave and HIS CAR GOT TOWED because he parked exactly where I told him not to. Looking back now I would've told him tough s, got him an Uber and went to work. But I took him to the car tow place so he could get it back.
And of course he doesn't have his wallet. So I had to pay for it, and sign for it because he doesn't have an ID on him. BUT the car tow place DOESN'T TAKE CARDS so we had to go find an ATM to get cash. So he finally gets his car, I'm already like 30 minutes late to work, and he goes, 'Okay I'll call you later' and I just said 'Never talk to me again.
He texted a few hours later and said he lost the stylus for his phone. I blocked his number. Second date, he drove and then drank a LOT, seemingly on purpose so he wouldn't be able to drive home. I agreed, and he spent the whole night crying in my bed about how I was going to leave him. I broke it off, he then looked up a performance I was in later that year in college and showed up. When the show ended, he waited around to say hi like friends and family do and then interrupted me while I greeted people to say 'SO THAT'S WHY YOU'VE BEEN SO BUSY' and then stormed out.
He drove 35 minutes, and sat through a minute play, for that. Place was filled with empty beer cans. Four, I kid you not, four rusty, hair-filled razors in the shower all were his — he lived alone. The sink was coated in hair and toothpaste. I was so disturbed. Then he told me he had a suspended license and a kid he never met, and I high-tailed it home. He comments on me ordering pizza in an Italian restaurant. I don't often eat meat, only veggie thing was pizza. He comments on me eating pizza with knife and fork.
He comments on me not wearing enough make-up only mascara, even though I wore zero make-up in profile pics. I politely ask about his work. He explains what he does as if he's talking to a 4 year old, even though he knows I'm doing two master degrees and did Biology at my finals.
Throughout the date [he] kept explaining stuff to me as if I'm in kindergarten. Doesn't ask anything about me but long monologues about himself.
I decline getting another drink and leave. Dodge his kiss and give him a peck on the cheek instead. On my way home I get a text asking if I'm sure I don't want a kiss. It was a 12 minute-long video about his MLM [multi-level marketing] vacation club that was 'totally not a pyramid scheme. Then he proceeded to explain why he was right about this and why it's not offensive when I told him that I did not appreciate his statement.
Then he told me about his years of psychological and physical abuse by his father, eventually culminating in him being stabbed by his father. He also suggested I listen to a couple of his favorite podcasts by a Trump-supporting, feminist-hating misogynist. On the way home I gave him a ride because it was cold out and I'm apparently a bleeding heart he asked me if I would go on a hour road trip that weekend with him which would have been our second date by the way.
Hard no. were you on the date we just had? When I stopped seeing him due to his clinginess and political leanings , his friends at work were apparently upset with my decision and one of them began to spread rumors that I'm sleeping with all my male friends. One of those friends has a long-term girlfriend, and she caught wind of these rumors. It almost destroyed their relationship.
We went to a bar for some drinks. We seem to be really hitting it off. Then her boyfriend turns up. It turns out he wants to have a MFF threesome and they had a Tinder account for her in order to find someone. When I got annoyed by this, they both suddenly got really aggressive and pissy. They followed me out of the bar and tried to get into a taxi with me. He refused to take off his coat and awkwardly started swearing.
He would ask me to come back to his place each time I finished a sip of my drink. The next day I told him I wasn't interested in seeing him anymore, then he asked me for a refund of the drink I offered to pay for but he insisted on buying.

He leaned in for a kiss and pooped his pants. He probably had filthy hands. He didn't know when to leave. He couldn't let anything go. His apartment was filled with blood-stained pillowcases. He mansplained. He tried to recruit his date to a pyramid scheme.
