Picture this: You’ve been online dating for a while, swiping past the obvious creeps and people who say they’re 28, but are actually 60. Finally you find someone who seems really nice. You chat for a while, have mutual hobbies and decide to go on a date. But then things start to get strange.
It’s the classic story. The “he seemed normal at first, but then things got weird,” story. Perhaps he moved too quickly, was too clingy or was obsessed with his ex and couldn’t stop talking about her.
Whatever the reason, it’s fair to say these guys did not get anymore dates.
Luckily you’re not alone. On a recent Reddit Thread, women discussed their worst dates.
1. He appreciates your hair… a little too much.
Trust me. Its not normal for a guy to be more interested in your hair than you are.
“Right after he picked me up, he ran into Walgreens really quick and asked to put his bag in my purse. Naturally I assumed he bought candy since we were going to the movies.” shared Reddit user @McHammerFace.
“Nope, right after the opening previews started he pulled out a brand new hairbrush, does the fake yawn to put his arm around me while holding the brush and starts brushing my hair. He then leans his head on my shoulder while still brushing my hair and starts smelling my hair.”
At least it was a new hairbrush… right?
2. He’s asking to borrow money after the 2 weeks.
Flimsiness with money is a warning sign, Reddit user @Ridiculous_Diagnosis found out.
“Guy took me out for drinks, seemed great, then asked me to move in two weeks later. Then asked me for money for his phone bill. Then bought me an iPad. And then I realized he was a drug dealer. Oops,” she wrote. (Watch Mamamia staff reveal their most awkward dating stories. Post continues after video.)
3. Creepy doc.
OK this one sounds like something from a horror film. Insensitive doctor or psychopath?
"First date with this doctor, worked in emergency. He was really sweet at first. Totally normal conversation. I had just gotten to thinking that it was a shame he was a little dull. And then he had a couple more drinks. And started talking about work. And how excited he gets when people come in with like poles through their brains. And the more blood the better. And his eyes lit up in this really intense way." Emily said.
