Crazy online dating stories
When I showed up to the bar he’d chosen, he was already pretty plastered. Finally, I managed to get small talk going and it came up that I have a short list of things that make me instantly not trust someone: If you don’t like pizza; if you wear socks to bed every night; if a mustache is your only facial hair; and if you don’t like dogs.Then he said, ‘Would this be a bad time to mention I hate dogs? This isn’t going to work.’ And I got up and left.” –Cynthia, 26, Brooklyn “I went on a random Tinder date with a guy whom I had little to no chat with beforehand.
Awkward.” –Kate, 28, London “I was 45 minutes late to a first date because a kid literally got murdered for his bike along the bus route I was on.
I replied, “Ohhhhh, you thought I meant the bathroom at the bar?
I meant the one in my apartment.'” –Mary, 26, Manhattan “I went on a blind first date with a man who lived with a guy who my roommate met on Tinder—what a time to be alive. But I’m a trooper, so I tried to stick it out to be nice.
He texted right away to make plans for a second date.
I woke up the next morning super hungover and had to tell him I wasn’t interested.
