I Asked 7 Girls About Their Worst Date Experiences And You'll Cringe Over Every. Single. One.

I Asked 7 Girls About Their Worst Date Experiences And You'll Cringe Over Every. Single. One.

"I just sipped my water quietly."

We all get nervous about our first (and sometimes 50th) date with someone new. But if these girls knew what their date would have entailed, would they have gone on it anyway, cried in advance, or sh*t themselves?

Here are seven girls' worst date experiences:

1. Chivalry is apparently, not dead?

"I went on a date with this guy and first went and got smoothies at this health place which is kind of weird anyway, but it happened so yeah. Then we went to the movies and I paid for myself and I did at the health place too because it was us and another couple and I'm not incapable of paying for myself. So in the middle of the movie theater, my date starts yelling at me about how I tarnished his 'knight's honor' by not letting him pay he insisted that they refund my ticket so he can pay for it?? He literally didn't stop until the other couple we were with were like 'dude, chill out' and then he was huffy the whole movie and it was super awkward. When he drove me home, he continued popping off about how his knight's honor was tarnished and I'm an insult to women and men everywhere. He texted me as soon as I got to my house to tell me he could never see me again because of how I embarrassed him."

2. The 2018 edition of "It's not you, it's me."

"I went on a date with a guy and we ended up making out... Midway through he stopped and said, 'Yeah, I just needed to make sure. I'm gay.'

3. These boots were made for...sittin' on you.

"My worst date experience was when I met someone off of Tinder. I had a few other dates which were good experiences. But this kid... I had talked to him a few other times and we had gotten to know each other for months. He lived two hours away from me so meeting up with him was kind of hard at the time. After we made the arrangement of meeting up in Pittsburgh, I learned that he didn't have a car. Not a big deal but we were like 20-years-old... So he bought a ticket for the bus but needed to be picked up in Pittsburgh which I was horrible driving in. I finally asked my mom to drive which just screams PATHETIC.

When I saw him, he has his jeans pulled up to his belly button, a tucked in shirt, and cowboy boots on. We're the COMPLETE opposite of each other and you could immediately feel that between us. The car ride was completely silent on the way home until my mom dropped us off at the house. She had to go grocery shopping and at this point, you'd think we're 13. I'm trying to make eye contact with my mom so she doesn't leave but she didn't get the hint and we were left alone...

So I'm laying on the couch after hardly saying 10 words to the guy and he comes and sits on top of me! He starts kissing me—very awkward and then gets up. He gets a lacrosse t-shirt out of his bag and throws it at me... (mind you this is our first time meeting). we drop him back off and he texts me and says, 'Is it too soon to tell you I love you??' and I say 'yes?!?!?!?!' (Because yes the eff is this?)

Then he told me I looked prettier in pictures."

4. Same time tomorrow?

"I went on an ice cream date and this guy says 'I have so much to ask you about but I just can't remember any of it.' So I was like okay no big deal. I asked him questions but he didn't answer them in a way for us to have a real conversation. The date was an hour long and we sat in silence for at least 45 minutes. Then an hour after he drops me off, he texts me 'ugh I just remembered all the things I wanted to ask you. Would you want to go grab dinner tomorrow night?'"

5. I plead the 5th.

"I went on a date in college (and keep in mind that this campus is very religious and strict and half the kids are homeschooled). He picks me up but asks if I can walk to his dorm so I thought yeah, okay. We go out to Chili's and the waiter doesn't say anything before he blurts out, 'yeah we'll be having waters and the two for $20.' I thought it was a little abrasive but I didn't mind because I liked the two for $20 menu. After that, he brings up the Trump and Hillary election and kind of got offended when I didn't say a lot. He told me I needed to care more about it and maybe like the four or fifth question he asked me was, 'So are you a virgin?' I think I took two bites and sipped my water quietly after that.

6. When your date fourth wheels.

"One time I went on a blind double date when I was in high school and the guy I was set up with was basically mute the entire time. So after like 45 minutes of me chatting it up with my friend and her date, he TEXTS me and asks if he can kiss me?(!!!) So I said no and he responded saying I was a waste of his time."

7. I would rather binge on cake alone.

"My worst date experience was when I went out with this guy for my birthday and he was on Tinder the whole time."

5 Questions To Ask Yourself When You're On The Fence With A Guy

Is he worth it?


Whether you're contemplating if you want to continue your fling with a guy or contemplating breaking up with your boyfriend, there are always questions we're asking ourselves. Ranging from "is this right of me?" to "is this what will make me happy?" But if you are really sitting on the fence and don't know what to do next, check out these five questions you need to ask yourself if you're torn on what to do.

1. Do I want long term or short term?

This is a huge question to ask. If you're looking to settle down for a while, your guy may not want that. And it could always be the other way around as well. Make sure to decipher this with him so you both know what you want and no one gets a broken heart.

2. Can I see myself marrying this person?

I know this is a bold question to ask, especially if you're not dating. But really thinking about if you can see yourself with them for a long time can make it or break it. But say you're dating and you're on the fence of deciding you want to break up with them or not, think about if you can see yourself saying "I do" to them, and if you can't, let him go.

3. Can I see myself living with them/how do they live?

I've seen many people get engaged and move in together and later call it quits due to the way their partner lived. If you've been getting to know your guy for a while now and notices he lives like a pig, you may have to wonder if you'd be cleaning up those messes in the future.

4. How do they make me feel?

This question in a no brainer. If they make you feel bad, why even question continuing into the relationship.

5. Are they worth it?

Is he worth it? I know I have had some experiences when I was on the fence with a couple of guys and I've had to ask myself the same question. And when I'd question if he was worth it or not, my gut feeling always came out right. If you're looking to keep him around, always ask yourself if he's worth it.

Girls, You NEED To Understand That Fuckboy Texting You ‘wyd’ 24/7 Will Never Give You A 24 Karat Ring

I finally managed to crack the code as to why your casual hookup will never try to make you his wife.

Elle Hong

There are five unofficial steps of hookup culture: Find a guy. Get to know him a little bit, but not too much (because you have to keep "boundaries," remember?) Make a pact to keep things "casual" and promise to still be "friends" with each other. Then, hookup with him. And keep hooking up with him without any emotional attachment — just over and over again and never expect anything more.

From a birds eye view, hookup culture seems so harmless. I mean, what's more convenient than having a booty call at your doorstep with the swipe of a screen? When you want to hook up, all you have to do is shoot that 2 a.m. "U Up?" text.

Hell, I even wrote a whole article about the perfect FWB situation.

Yet suddenly—here I am, Elle Hong, resident "Uncuffed" writer on Swoon and self proclaimed fuckgirl who glorifies hookup culture above anything else, catching feelings and falling for the wrong guys just like any other girl out in the world.

Consider this blasphemy. Or maybe I'm just dying to make a confession.

A confession that I, too, have experienced the feeling of wondering why I was never enough for the guys I hooked up with. Why they never chose me over the girls they would eventually form serious relationships with and why to them I only was nothing more than a casual hookup.

So, I thought about it. I critically analyzed it. I "Aristotle-d" my way into trying to find an answer behind the impossible question of wondering why I was never considered to be anything more. Over the past few weeks, it essentially became my new research topic and now, I finally managed to crack the code as to why your casual hookup will never try to make you into wifey material. Here's why.

First and foremost: Guys usually (but not always) choose to hookup with girls who they don't see as anything more.

Now, keep in mind I'm not saying that guys will NEVER fall in love with the girls they hookup with because it can happen. It's life. Life is unpredictable. No doubt, people have fallen in love on Tinder and married a random match who just happened to become The One. But we all know what Tinder is really for. Generally speaking, guys will seek random hookups with the types of girls they think are "easy" and if they're desperate enough, it's definitely not going to be someone they view as their future wife.

If he thinks you're cute, you're within 10 miles radius and you can hold a conversation, it doesn't matter what your annual salary is or how many siblings you got—he wants one thing and it's to get you in bed. And until a guys find this girl who captures his heart and inevitably makes him want to settle, he's going to go around hooking up with random girls left and right. So in this case, it's not your fault. You're just with the wrong type of guy who only thinks of you as his sexual conquest.

See also: Guys want to settle with girls that don't go around hooking up with other people.

Ironic as hell because I just talked about why guys would never want to settle, period. But think about it—guys are humans with rational thoughts and animalistic desires. When they find their territory, they mark it. Once he finds a girl who is the one, he never wants to let her go. And he never wants to see that girl be with another guy or god forbid, go around hooking up with other guys. So here's the moral of the story to get my point across: I hate to break it to you, but bragging about how many other guys you're f*cking outside of your current FWB situationship isn't going to help develop the relationship any further.

Finally: A girl's "hoe phase" might seem empowering but for guys they see it as a threat.

Thanks to the wonderful millennial encyclopedia that we call Urban Dictionary, we have a definition behind this certain life style: A phase in life which occurs when a girl goes around social settings exploring herself, committing promiscuous acts and connecting with random people. For girls, it seems pretty damn empowering, doesn't it? For us it's a chance to let loose, to live a lil bit more and to run around as independent women. Nothing wrong with that of course.

But for guys to perceive this type of lifestyle, they see it as a threat which could arise if they form a relationship with you. It's simple logic here. A girl who's in her "hoe phase" is more likely to be unfaithful since they're always out and about with this person and that person. Put it this way: a guy doesn't care if you're a hoe—but he only wants you to be HIS hoe and not everyone else's. So you might think that it's a great way to express yourself and to enjoy your college years, but keep in mind that it could possibly be holding you back from taking the next step with your casual FWB.
