Dating is a shapeshifting experience. It can be a beautiful journey when the chemistry is overflowing as you get to know each other and feel your bond forming with each shared story and all the new inside jokes. Other times, it can be like playing mental chess with a rabid bear on hard mode. Are they as interested as you are? Will they look like their picture in real life? Is your breath and B.O. in check, or are you immune to your own smells and secretly stinking up the place? The big night finally arrives, and so do you in your best fit, ready to shake off all the pre-date jitters and get to know your date, but then they do something that leaves you so shook you can feel yourself ghosting before the check hits the table. Today’s Redditors are sharing their most disastrous dates that no one could have guessed would go down.
That’s Doggone Dirty
People embellish little details of their life here and there to make themselves seem more attractive to new people. In fact, research has shown that around 43% of us fib on the first date. That guy who says he’s six feet tall might be more like five foot ten, and that girl who happens to share your favorite band in common might have snooped through your socials.
u/Mighty_Forest swiped right on a guy who used cute dog pictures to get girls. There’s nothing wrong with that until you learn he screwed the pooch by not even being a pet owner. The only dog here was her date. If he’d lie about having an adorable dog, what else is he hiding?
