If you want to read some oh-wow-I’m-so-glad-that-didn’t-happen-to-me horror stories about online dating, we’ve collected seven doozies for your enjoyment.
It’s too easy for online daters to be superficial jerks to one another.
One of my guy friends actually got stood up after driving 40 minutes to meet a girl who just never texted him back. One online dater thought getting in the car of the girl he’d met online was a good idea, but the rest of the date proved him wrong.
Then he asked her to drive him to his car after the movie. She’d been seeing a guy for a while, and she liked him enough to come back to his apartment after one date.
A decision she definitely regretted as soon as she stepped inside.
“He had loads of swords and machetes on the wall and decided to hold one to my throat to show me how incredibly strong they were,” she wrote.
The story stops there, but I think it’s safe to say she ran out of there without looking back.
“I watched a girl do meth.” This crazy date is an extreme example of why driving with someone on a first date is a horrible idea.
One of my friends had her first Tinder date at an outdoor movie in the park.
When you’re online dating, you’ll probably go on a few bad dates along the way.
