Everyone has their own disastrous stories of date. Before going on a date, both the person has certain expectations from the other. In fact both the person goes through various scenarios in their head about the upcoming date. Keeping all the scenarios in mind, they go on a date.
Even though both the parties somewhat expect it to go down the drain, none of them can prepare for what actually transpire there. I, myself have been in a disastrous date. My date turned out to be so bad that I haven’t gone out on another date for months.
I when think back about that date can’t help but laugh now but at that point all I wanted to do was dump all the food on the other person’s head and leave.
But unfortunately, I didn’t do that and I regret it till today. Before going to the date, I had imagined about different scenarios where the date can turn into a disastrous one but no preparations can prepare me for what actually happened there.
I went on a blind date. It was my first mistake. He happens to be a good friend of my best friend’s boyfriend. He had seen my pictures in his friend’s phone and was interested in meeting with me.
He was single and so was I, so my best friend convinced me to go on a date with him. I reluctantly agreed. And that was my second mistake.
She gave me his number and vice versa. We contacted and decided to meet for lunch at a shopping mall at 1 p.m. I was there on time and was waiting for him. It turns out that he somehow was one and half hour late because of the traffic.
By that time I was really hungry and being a foodie that was not good for me. After we met, he went to buy food but he did not ask me what I want.
He brought a meal for himself and only a small size burger for me. After seeing that, I got really angry but I asked him politely that why did he bought me a small burger.
His reply was along the lines of that girls normally don’t eat much on date to impress the other. After hearing his reply, I said I will come within five minutes and left to buy actual food for myself which happens to be a large chicken burger with a meal and ice cream.
He was shocked when he saw the amount of food I brought. He had the decency to say sorry to me for his behaviour and I just shrugged at that.
By that time, I lost all kind of respect for him and started regretting to come on a blind date with him. After that he tried to have small talk with me and I replied as politely as I could manage on that situation.
I thought the worse was over but alas! It was not so. After I was done eating and was just starting to eat the ice cream, a girl came to talk to him.
It turns out that she was his ex-girlfriend, they date for like two months. I was looking at the scene with amusement. They were arguing in front of me about their break up and it seemed like my date has completely forgotten about me. It was fun to watch them argue.
I was eating my ice cream while practically looking at a movie. At that time I was missing popcorn. After around half hour of arguing, I laughed at them because of how the girl was berating him.
It was funny but at that point both of them turned towards me and it looked like my date just remembered that I was there the whole time.
At that point he didn’t know what to say to me, so I sense the awkward situation, I told them to continue fighting as I was enjoying it. They both looked at me like I was crazy.
The girl was embarrassed, so she left and my supposed date didn’t know how to react to it. After five minutes of silence on his part and me eating my lovely ice cream in quite, he finally said that he is sorry about her.
I told him that it’s fine as he is a jerk anyway and that he can leave if he wants to because I am no way leaving without finishing my yummy ice cream.
He sat there till I finished my ice cream and then offered to take me home. I just told him directly that he is an idiot and as a person I find him repulsive and disgusting. With that said I left. After leaving, my best friend heard some colourful words from me.
The date was horrible in my opinion but it also could have been worse and the guy could have turned out to be a creep. Fortunately that didn’t happen.
On my best friend’s birthday, he came along with my friend’s boyfriend. At that time I completely ignored him and pretended that he didn’t exist.
Later I heard from my best friend that he is really sorry for how that date went and is interested in taking me out on another proper date. After hearing that, I said that I don’t like him as a person, so I do not want to go on another date with him even though it is a good thing that he realized his mistake.
This was my story of a disastrous date. There are many stories like this which says how a date turned into a disastrous one. I, after personally experiencing how disastrous a date can be, feel pity for every person who has gone on a disastrous date.
No person should suffer like this because a horrible date can be like a horrible nightmare which no one wants to be a part of.
I am not saying that only girls go through experiences like this because many guys go through the same kind of situation and it is not pretty at any case.
Who would have thought that a date can turn out into something that no one expects. Before going on a date people should not expect anything because no expectation’s means no disappointments.
