We asked the BuzzFeed Community to share their worst blind date horror stories. Here are the cringeworthy results.
1. The job interview:
“We decided to go out for drinks and I offered to drive. When we got to the bar he asked our waitress for a job application and to speak to the manager. The waitress said they weren’t hiring, but he demanded he speak with a manager anyway. After he submitted his application, I ordered a beer and he ordered a water. We chatted for about 45 minutes before he abruptly ended the date. I guess he really just needed a ride to submit a job application.”
2. The date that ended up at Denny’s:
“I took a bus about an hour away to meet this girl for dinner. We went to a nice restaurant — I had a couple of drinks while she had an entire bottle of wine and some champagne. The date was not going well so I headed back to the bus station. I ended up missing the last bus out of town and, on top of that, my card kept getting declined. I had nowhere to stay so I walked three miles to a Denny’s. After tearfully explaining my night to the manager, he let me sleep in a booth and gave me free breakfast in the morning.”
3. The date with a KISS-enthusiast:
“I was set up by a friend with a guy who seemed really nice at first. I soon realized that he was absolutely obsessed with the band KISS. He spoke at length about wanting to be buried in a KISS coffin. I was thrilled when the date was over, right up until the moment he asked if I wanted to go back to his place and test out his KISS condoms. No. No. No. I still shudder every time I hear a KISS song.”
