I hadn’t even finished my second drink.” –Anastasia, 27, Brooklyn “On my first-ever Tinder date, the man’s photos didn’t really give an idea of what he looked like and when he showed up, he was very funny and nice, but I knew I was never going to be attracted to him.
I woke up the next morning super hungover and had to tell him I wasn’t interested.It’s a small comfort to know that if you end up venturing into a date that’s a total waste of time, a hilarious mismatch, or ends horrifically, you’ll automatically be the most interesting person at brunch the next weekend.And to let you know that you’re not alone out there, here are a few terrible (read: entertaining as hell) tales from some real women who spilled the gory details of funniest and weirdest first dates.“On my first date with my now husband, we went to a local pizza place and sat on the same side of a booth because it was really busy and loud.We had a great time, but when we were waiting for our check, he let out a huge fart that I couldn’t hear or smell—thank goodness—but I definitely felt the massive vibration.Side note, he had greeted me with a ‘you look like your photos! or replying to future texts.” –Casey, 28, San Francisco “My first Tinder meet-up also happened to be my first date after a shattering breakup, and I felt all kinds of badass for finally getting back out there.I was already into this guy—his pictures were cute and the texting was good.I replied, “Ohhhhh, you thought I meant the bathroom at the bar?I meant the one in my apartment.'” –Mary, 26, Manhattan “I went on a blind first date with a man who lived with a guy who my roommate met on Tinder—what a time to be alive. But I’m a trooper, so I tried to stick it out to be nice.I guess I drunkenly gave my number to a random guy at a party who happened to have the same name as this cute guy in my architecture class.It was super embarrassing but I made myself stick it out with a smile until the date ended.” –Cassie, 29, Boston “I was on a date with a handsome guy and it was going well until he started getting very handsy and I think maybe even tried to slip something in my drink—though this detail is a bit unclear in my memory—but needless to say, his behavior made me uncomfortable.
