Bad Dating Stories

Nuts Over You

I went on a great date with Jonathan, a guy from work. We hadn't known each other for very long because I was quite new to the job. When he asked me out for a drink, I wasn't sure if it was just him being friendly, or whether he fancied me. I fancied him though, he was really cute. He had these piercing blue eyes and white teeth - yum! The thing is, when I'm attracted to someone I cover up my vulnerability by becoming a clown - in a good way though! I have a wicked sense of humour, and never Read more [...]

Jekyll and Hyde Girl

I guess it should have clicked - why would such a hot girl need to be on an online dating website? Having been online for a while already, and having met up with a few women for dates, I knew that mostly pictures and messages are deceiving, but I have grown an open mind. At the end of the day I am online because I want to meet someone who I get along with and might possibly fall for. She doesn't have to be a knock out. Sophie was a knock out though, and when she started to message me back, Read more [...]

A Cheap Dig

I made a complete fool out of myself with this guy who took me out once. We went to a nice little Italian restaurant, nothing too fancy. I can be a bit of a snob though, and I think I was expecting to be taken somewhere a little more upmarket, but it was cool. I couldn't help notice that he was ordering cheaper options off the menu for himself, which was irritating me. I ordered a starter, then he changed his mind and suggested we share what I had ordered because he'd like to try it but didn't Read more [...]

Stood Up – Blind Fury

A friend of mine set me up on a blind date, bless her. She knew I was reluctant, and that I never make any effort when it comes to men, but that underneath it all I'd really like to meet someone. She was the total go-between; arranged the times and the meeting place, everything. All I had to do was turn up with a smile and an open mind. I wasn't nervous at all, at my age there is little that tends to jar me. I'm a successful career woman with my own house, car and team of employees. If anything, Read more [...]

Online Dating and Online Footprints

Ellie seemed really cool online. We were having long messaging conversations and finding out all sorts of cool things about each other. I felt that I had a really clear picture of who she was and I was really looking forward to meeting her properly for the first time. My best friend, who always has my best interests at heart, said "Have you googled her yet?" No, the thought hadn't even crossed my mind, why would I google someone I didn't even know. "Why wouldn't you?" Was his reply. I'm Read more [...]

Hot Stuff!

I felt like Craig and I had been dating for long enough and that I wanted to take things to the next level. The only way it was going to happen though was to invite him over to mine instead of going out. I didn't want to make it too obvious so I suggested it might be fun if we do some cooking together. The cooking part was certainly a lot of fun; drinking wine and chopping up vegetables, herbs and chilli, I was really working up an appetite! But once it was all in the pot, there was time to kill...

Childhood Sweethearts That Were Never Meant To Be

I think my worst dating experience was twenty years ago when I was about ten, and totally in love with this older girl at school. She was one of the popular girls, seriously pretty and way out of my league. I knew it, she knew, I think the whole school knew it, but I was a cocky little rude boy and I wanted to show off to all my mates. We arranged with her mates to make sure she was in a certain place at a certain time because I wanted to ask her out. It was meant to be a private thing but Read more [...]

Creative Dating Gone Horribly Wrong

I go on so many dates that it can get a bit repetitive, so I've started to be a bit more creative and the girls seem to like it. There was this one time that it completely backfired though. I knew that this girl I wanted to impress was kind of arty. She was into sculpture so I thought she might appreciate a life-drawing class. I booked it and didn't tell her what I had in mind. I wanted her to think we were just going to the pictures or something ordinary so that it would be more of a surprise. The Read more [...]

Paying The Price For Being The Date From Hell

A girl I had been seeing for a few weeks invited me back to her place for a few drinks after we had been out on our date. I was obviously pleased because I thought I was going to get lucky. She lived in a shared house and none of her flatmates were home. The house was pretty fancy, I think they rented it together. She invited me into the living room to show me her impressive cocktail cabinet. She worked in a really trendy upmarket bar, but I didn't expect her to have all of this at home! She Read more [...]

The Great Escape

I was taking this really hot chick out for dinner. Her name was Elaine and I had met her through a work colleague. I was really looking forward to the date because I knew that she fancied me. I picked a really expensive restaurant because I wanted to impress her, and she was impressed! I played the whole date out impeccably. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was amazing, she was amazing. Then the bill came and I couldn't find my wallet. I swear to God, I couldn't find it anywhere. When Read more [...]
