14 People Spoke About Their Dates That Made Them Run Like Sprinters

4 weeks ago

When you are 18 years old, you can expect all sorts of weird and crazy things from dating. But when you’re in your thirties, you might think that people should behave in a mature way. But some 30-year-olds are more trouble than teenagers. This article is exactly about people like this.

  • I’m 35, and met a nice guy a couple weeks ago. We had 3 really fun dates and on the third he invited me to his home. I was excited, but once I got inside, it was covered in cat fur all over the floors and furniture, cat litter was spread around behind the front door. How do you tell someone you want to spend time with them, but their house smells and is filthy? I mean every single surface, tables included.
    The bathroom was covered in pubes, even the sink, and the toilet was so crusty. I tried to hint that I couldn’t stay in such a mess. I was afraid of his reaction. He suddenly got embarrassed, said he’d been living alone for a long time and he’d made a mess. I left, and the next time I came back, everything was perfectly clean. I decided to give this relationship a chance. © areyouseriousthobro / Reddit
  • My neighbor found a third husband at the age of 44. She registered on a dating site. She made a list: his job, habits, income. Cynical? Maybe, but she managed a team of 50 people at work and she wanted her equal. So, men on dates were like, “Are we being tested?”
    And she just shrugged and stuck to her guns. She recalled, “One guy swore that he would get a second job to be with me, but I refused. He would never be at home because of that.” But she still found a husband. She says they have been happily together for 2 years.
  • I’ve never been on a date with a single mum before. But here I am, in every way. I think it’s a bit too much to take your 2-year-old daughter on the first date. It’s like you’re not looking for a partner, but for a father for your child. It’s a little tense, you know. © Estrald / Reddit
  • We chatted online for 2 weeks, and then set up a date. I even brought a book with me: I was mentally prepared that he wouldn’t show up. But what I didn’t expect was to see him at a bar with another woman!
    At first, I was confused, but then I brazenly approached and said, “Hi!” And I addressed the man by his name. He looked at me and was like, “You’re mistaken.” And he and that woman left. He didn’t have the courage to admit everything on the spot. © whyyyydomen / Reddit
  • There was a man among my friends who I liked. He’s a musician, has a beautiful voice, and he writes very romantic songs! And he seemed serious and thoughtful. No matter how hard I tried, he paid no attention to me.
    But then something happened — maybe a magnetic storm — he suddenly asked me out. I heard more words from him there than I’d heard in a year of knowing him. But I wish I hadn’t. He was talking nonsense with a smart face. Like, “I heard the other day that all problems come from childhood.” Dude, you’re in your thirties, are you serious?
    Anyway, it turned out that he didn’t talk much not because he was serious, on the contrary, he was rather silly. His mind is on the level of a 14-year-old. That was our first and last date.
  • One particular date played the “my sister needs me, I have to go” card. Sadly, she told me 20 minutes before that, that she was a single child. Where did that sister come from? But I was thankful because I didn’t know how to end that horrible date.
    She was so stubborn on the idea that everything needs a social interpretation for women to cope with it. Like “if you explain math with a social example then women will be interested too. It’s men’s fault that it isn’t like that.” I was like, “How do you explain integrals socially?” She didn’t have an answer to that. © Ripped_Guggi / Reddit
  • When he asked me out, and I said yes, he then asked if I’d like to go to dinner and what kind of food I liked. I said anything but sushi. He took me to a sushi place. Said he thought he’d be able to change my mind. © Xina123 / Reddit
  • I’m 35 years old and was dating a really great woman for about 2.5 months. Everything seemed perfect. Then one day she went to take a shower and her phone rang. The name on the phone was “Hubby.”
    I started to question her, and she broke down crying and told me she had been married for 7 years. She was tired of her husband and was attracted to me. She suggested we leave things as they were. I kicked her out. I feel cheated and broken. © WisconsinSp*mCheese / Reddit
  • Oh my goodness, I just left in the middle of a date. We were sitting in a restaurant. Things were going well at first, we were laughing and chatting, but then he made a couple of nasty remarks about women. I felt uncomfortable.
    Then he invited me to his place, I flatly refused, but he kept insisting. He started kissing me on the first date! I apologized, saying I had to go to the toilet, but I quickly paid for my food and slipped away. I blocked his number. © Unknown author / Reddit
  • I once had a video date. It was remarkable because the guy was cutting his nails in the process. And he said, “So I’m clipping my fingernails, I’m trying to get a better camera angle because I really hope you can’t see this on screen.” Except I did see it, yuck! © CarelessAmbush / Reddit
  • On the first date, the guy claimed he lived alone. On the second one, it turned out he lived with a girlfriend, but “it wasn’t serious.” I immediately got up and left. © soph_lurk_2018 / Reddit
  • The guy asked me out and invited to a cafe. There he showed himself in all his glory. I said, I was on holiday in Greece. And he replied arrogantly, “That’s nothing, I lived there for a year.” I complained about hard work, he said he had a harder job. And all that sort of thing.
    It got to the point where the man who was sitting next to us started gesturing to me to run away from him. The following day, I texted the guy that it wouldn’t work out between us.
  • Friends said, “There’s a nice guy. He fits you, give him a chance.” They meant that I’m quiet, and he’s a serious man who will solve all my problems. But I’m quiet as long as I feel fine.
    Okay, I went on a date where I heard a list of things a woman should do. He’s looking for a quiet and obedient wife. I politely excused myself. Now I have a lot of questions to my friends.
  • I’ve been single for about a year. So, I started looking for a new relationship. I still think that the first date should happen in a cafe where people can chat and get to know each other better.
    You can’t imagine how many times I’ve been invited for a walk in the park. Those who invited me for a coffee actually took me to a fast food place. No one ever invited me to a coffee shop. I don’t understand what’s wrong.
    When I was a student, guys always asked me out for a coffee on a first date. Now I can pay for myself in any restaurant. That’s why I can’t understand why men at a mature age invite a woman to a park, like teenagers. © Overheard / Ideer
