Everyone walks around with their heads down, staring at their phones and thinking about something going on halfway across the globe instead of what's right in front of them. However, online dating has become more normal than ever. It used to be a bit taboo to meet up with people from the internet because it was considered dangerous. While it's still best to let someone know where you're going to be just in case you need some backup, it's generally considered pretty safe to meet up with a stranger for a cup of coffee or a drink.
I personally know a few people who have met their long-term partners or even their spouses online, but that doesn't mean that these online meet-ups don't also sometimes go off the rails.
These 10 online dating attempts were shared by Reddit users whose experiences did not go as planned. Do you know anyone who's gone on a terrible online date? Please SHARE with family and friends to see if they can add to this list!
Thumbnail source: YouTube. She only wanted to communicate through email or the dating site, which I thought was odd but just went with it. Every bush movement and twig snap I was sure was him. Spent a few long hours filling out their personality assessment stuff, trying to be as honest as possible. She's smart, pretty, and they share mutual interests. Eventually he asked if I'd like to see his flat and I said yes. I arrived on the date, all happy, but realized that the girl who sat was a year old lady with two children and was just finding an excuse to leave her house.
She is attractive, fun. Lots of things in common. Below are some upsetting, embarrassing, and generally terrible online dating tales SELF readers experienced IRL. So the next time you go on a seriously awful date you'll know that you're not alone. We're right here with you. Every day he charted his height, weight, what he ate that day, what he weighed, what he read, watched, who he talked to, etc. When I found him on Facebook later that night—after we hooked up—I realized he was cheating on his girlfriend with me.
Not OK! One of my matches, let's call him Alex, seemed nice and helpful—but I never actually met up with him in person. A year later, I get a call from Alex, asking if he can travel cross-country to visit me, stay in my house, and meet my parents.
Um, no? Which one is it? I was mortified, so I blocked them—it was the first thing I could think to do. I was a few beers and a couple hours in when I decided to call it a night. The guy judged me for yawning and put two more beers in front of me—then he guilt-tripped me for 'making him come out of his way to meet for such a short date. That was his opening line. I'm sorry, but implying I'm a prostitute is going to get you nowhere.
I thought that was super weird and didn't want to, but he kept asking so I finally told him. Then he made a big deal about telling me his, which was 50 points higher. I declined and told him I'd hit him up when I was back in town. Over the holidays, this man kept texting me, asking when I would be back in town so we could go out again, and after one coffee date, I wasn't feeling the desperation. Trying not to be rude, I started texting back less and less and let on that I didn't want to see him again when I did get back.
Of course, for some strange reason, this causes him to start friending me on all social media, sending me multiple messages a day on multiple platforms, and even calling me five times in one day, each of which I ignored. Finally, he sends flowers to the school I teach at, which was super creepy because I had never told him the specific school.
I was so freaked out and messaged him and told him to leave me alone. Then he proceeds to send me a passive-aggressive message about how he was a good guy and was going to block me on all social media! Like he wasn't the one stalking me?! In any case, he's blocked; I'm glad I didn't meet up with him again, and I haven't met up with anyone from Tinder in a while. I literally went on a date each night. It was mostly bland, and nothing too exciting came from it.
Then I matched with a cute guy from an hour away. We messaged extensively for about a week before meeting up. For our first date, we had dinner, walked around a casino, then saw 50 Shades of Grey.
It was a beyond-awesome date. When I got home, I promptly canceled all future dates with others I had planned. After our second date, we moved pretty quickly from that point. We live together and have the world's weirdest cat. We've been together for almost two years and have been engaged for nearly a year.
We decided to finally hang out, but he said I had to pick him up since he didn't have a car that should've been my first clue. I went to pick him up, and the first thing he does when he gets in the car is pat my belly and say, 'A little too much beer, yeah? You're gonna have to lose that if we date. The app always made it easy to spot the guys who were worth getting to know, and easy to tell which guys were there strictly for hookups.
I met my last boyfriend on Tinder, and we ended up dating for about nine months. After we broke up, I met my current boyfriend, and we are celebrating our two-year anniversary tonight! However, something just kept telling me there was something off about him. He kept getting really pushy about meeting up at places I was not comfortable with. I finally decided to unmatch him. Fast-forward about a month, and I'm at work. I happen to be a corrections officer at the regional jail in my area.
I am working one of the male units, and an inmate walks up to my desk and says he knows me. After interviewing him, it turns out it's the guy I matched with and decided not to meet. It turns out he is in on kidnapping charges. Needless to say, I changed units and told my supervisors immediately. We matched on December 23rd last year while I was at my mom's house for Christmas. I jokingly asked he if she would come with me to Christmas Eve Mass the following day with my mom and me, and she agreed!
She met me at my house and brought my mom a present. We went to church and came back to the house, where she helped me decorate the tree, and then we watched Home Alone after. Still one of my favorite days. We started dating officially five months later. Fast-forward into the date and he disappeared and came back holding a sandwich-sized bag half full of what looked like broken glass. Crack, my Tinder date had crack.
I politely declined his offer and then, when I had the opportunity, made an exit. We've been together almost a year, and I recently moved out of state to live with him. We talked through text for about a week before we met.
After meeting, we clicked immediately. This guy was going to take me to see Finding Dory, and he showed up 15 minutes late. I was just asking him questions about himself, but he started answering the questions with information about ME because he had completely stalked my Facebook page beforehand.
He then fell asleep during the movie. I decided not to see him again after that date. matched on Tinder about a year and three months ago. Tinder definitely won this round. I could not get out of there fast enough! We've been dating for almost two years, and I'm his first legitimate girlfriend.
We have the best chemistry, but our personalities can be pretty different. He's very laid-back, and I can be a little high maintenance at times, but that's what makes us so great. He helps me realize I don't need to stress about the small stuff, and I help him with things that may stress him out, etc. We're not just best friends but soulmates, and we have already started building a life together. And this is all ironic because we both used to be super skeptical of Tinder and online dating relationships, yet for both of us, it was pretty much love at first sight , and that's something neither of us had before.
At the time, I was so sick of Tinder and dating altogether. I replied, thinking, Let's see how far this goes before he turns into a creep.
To my shock, we ended up in a really odd but funny conversation, and he asked me out the same night! For our first date, we met up for coffee and a movie. I was really nervous, as I like to have a nice supply of alcohol on dates in case things get awkward. And they were, as we were two strangers sitting in a dark movie theater next to each other in what turned out to be a three-hour movie.
But luckily, he asked if I wanted to get a drink afterward, and I happily obliged. We closed down the bar, and I was beaming when I got home. After our second date, he said he would like to see me again but never made plans. So I took the reigns and asked him out.
We decided to go for bottomless brunch. Long story short, we got wasted on a Sunday morning and spent the whole day walking around town. We just got back from a trip to the West Coast and celebrated our first anniversary! Just this time last year, I was waiting for him to turn into a fuckboy, and he has proved me wrong every time. He turned me into a mushy cuddle monster, and I can't imagine there ever was a time he was not in my life. He then asked me to "play Animal Crossing while I gag on his huge schlong.
Proof that OkCupid isn't always OK. I went for a drink with a guy I had been chatting with online. He seemed pretty normal good job, intelligent, funny. His first question on sitting down with our drinks was whether I was up for anal. I bypassed and watched him drink his body weight in shots before he started crying about his ex-girlfriend and then threw up down my shoulder when I was trying to walk him home.
This was around 18 months ago, and he still messages me from time to time with a "hey," or my favourite, "I miss you. Met a guy who seemed to be decent. We went to see a movie, and he kept talking about my feet — how "beautiful and sexy" he thought they were. I was like, "Thanks? I said, "Definitely not. I accidentally kicked him in the face. I was so shocked! I excused myself to go to the restroom and just walked straight out the door and left him in the theater.
I had an online dating app for exactly one day because the first person to message me sent me a long, detailed, emotional message asking for permission to masturbate onto my socks. I met a guy on OkCupid, and we hit it off pretty well. After we hung out a few times, he came over to my place with a bottle of wine and a movie.
He wasn't supposed to stay the night, but he lived 45 minutes away, it had snowed earlier, and I lived in a very rural area with a lot of hills and curves. So he decided he was going to stay that night instead of driving home.
This only irritated me because he didn't really ask, he just decided. But the best part of the night was right before I went to bed he was staying on the couch : He asked me if I should change my pad. I looked at him quizzically, and he said, "You need to change your pad before you go to bed — you could get TSS [toxic shock syndrome].
His argument was that he was an EMT and has a sister, so he "knows all about these things. Needless to say, he went home the next morning, and I've neither talked to or seen him since. I once received a message from a man asking if I would give him a rim job , because I looked like the type of girl who does that.
I went out with a guy from MeetMe. Things were going really well, and he eventually almost moved in with me and my family. Then I caught him looking down my year-old daughter's shirt. I broke up with him and didn't blink twice. Recently found out he is awaiting a hearing for a sexual attack on a child under I dodged a bullet and will never trust dating online again. I met a guy on Plenty of Fish. We began messaging, and he seemed like a nice person, so we exchanged numbers.
After a few days of talking on WhatsApp, our conversation fizzled out, and we stopped talking. A couple of weeks later, totally out of the blue, he sent me a picture of a random woman's boobs. Confused by this, I just sent back a question mark, and he then said, "Send more.
He then said, "Send me more or I'll send that picture of the boobs to everyone you know! He then started reeling off names of people I'm friends with on Facebook, even though I hadn't told him my last name and we weren't Facebook friends! I was incredibly freaked out and threatened to call the police, which scared him off. I blocked his number and set all my Facebook settings to private, and I've not been on POF or anything similar since.
This guy sent me this message on Tinder: "pizza and anal? I was once talking to this guy online and after a few hours of nice, PG conversation, he did a complete He asked where I worked because I looked familiar He said I looked like a girl from an amateur porn video. I knew that was not possible. He then asked if he could jerk off while we continued our normal conversation. After he tricked me into continuing the conversion for a few more minutes, I told him good-bye.
Then he barraged me with dozens of lengthy messages asking to help him orgasm by telling him what he was doing was normal. Apparently he had issues with disapproval and couldn't finish without me telling him the simple letters "OK. I had been chatting with a guy on Yahoo Singles for a while, and we got along fairly well. When he asked me out to dinner I figured, sure, why not? It was singularly the most awkward and uncomfortable evening I have ever spent on a date.
We spent our time attempting to make disjointed conversation At the end of the evening we just simply said good night, and I figured that was the end of it.
Approximately six months later, I received a message from his Yahoo account that roughly said the following: "Hi! This is X's brother. This is going to sound really odd, but X is in prison for a few months a big misunderstanding! and I know he'd really like to hear from you. His address is through the ABC Correctional facility. Please write him! No joke. Apparently he was a foreigner and wanted to become an American citizen. He couldn't comprehend why I declined. He said, "Other people would do it for half the money!
Met a guy online, and we hit it off on our first date. A couple weeks later we had gone on four dates, and he knew where I lived. That's when it started getting weird. He wouldn't return my phone calls, so after a week I stopped trying. Not long after, I glanced out the window of my house and saw him parked a couple houses down with another person in the car.
I waited to see what he would do, and he drove off an hour later. A couple days later, he was back, except parked in a different location. I started to get freaked out. There was also a second person in the car that time. They left two hours later. The third time I saw his car outside, I was poised to call the cops.
I didn't get a chance because there was a knock on the door. I opened it to a very pregnant girl on my front steps. She began to rant: How could I date a guy with a girlfriend, did I not have any morals, who did I think I was trying to steal her man, etc. I let her go on for a while before I interrupted her, told her I had no idea, and I asked why she was mad at me since I wasn't the one cheating on her.
I found out that she forced him to drive to my house and sit outside nine different times. She wanted to see what I looked like and have him confront me and break it off , but he wouldn't go up to my door. I wish them all the best. My first experience with dating after my divorce, I met a guy who ended up being a sexual predator who "forgot" to put himself on the sex offender registry.
He tried to get me to send him naked pics of my daughter, under the guise of being a nudist. I would be kicking myself if I didn't ask, so I was wondering if you would accept an engagement of witty banter between two intellectuals. Of course this "engagement" may start off as purely platonic, but my sensual desires will most likely guide our cohesive unity down more erotic, lascivious, and sexual paths that will include, but are not limited to, passionate make out sessions under the starlit sky, dry humping, fondling each other's naughty parts, and an abundance of new, uncharted sexual positions where I assert my pure dominance in establishing a realm of absolute sovereignty in your nether regions.

Please write him! No joke. We spent our time attempting to make disjointed conversation I'm parked next to your jeep. When he opened it, there stood the guy I had just gone on a date with, holding an earring in his hand.
