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."

I Am A Hopeless Romantic Living In A World Where One-Night Stands Are The Norm

It's the little things.


In today's society, it can certainly start to feel like no one takes love seriously anymore.

Whether it's that one couple who has broken up and gotten back together more times than you can count, the two friends-with-benefits no one can figure out, your local womanizer, or just hookups in general, love and lust are a huge part of specifically college life and culture.

As a hopeless romantic, being part of a generation that "just wants to have fun" can be really frustrating, especially when you just want to find something real. It is so easy for people to put on a fake act just to get what they want and sometimes this can be extremely hard to see through. I'm sure we've all had some kind of incident with someone who played nice but had ulterior motives and the sad truth is that it can be impossible to recognize a person's artificiality.

I am a hopeless romantic.

I have always classified myself as such, and it has remained true. Sure, I can make the most of the freedoms I have as a single college woman, but deep down I just want to find my person.

I've had my fair share of letdowns, and I think we all have, but being a hopeless romantic makes it that much more difficult to get past the "what ifs" and fantasies that come along with starting something with someone new. We may already have our hearts set on a person when they decide they've gotten what they wanted and leave.

For me, I find myself caught up in the little things that someone does. I have always been someone who picks up on small details in situations, and sometimes this works against me.

I pick up on the small facial expressions that he may not even realize he is making; the ones that tell you when their guard has been let down, even just for a split second.

I pick up on the way he sits our two cellphones side by side on the nightstand, taking care to line them up perfectly as if that's just their spot.

I pick up on the short moments of laughter where he actually lets himself laugh and forgets about the act.

I pick up on things, and sometimes I end up hurting because of it.

When it comes down to it, though, I wouldn't change the way that I am. I wouldn't change the fact that I find myself in the search for more in a society that mostly only offers me less.

The trait that tends to hurt me most is also the one that I value most. Even if noticing all the little things is something that contributes to my own heartache, I love those moments. There is something beautiful about those tiny things shared by two people, even if the connection ends there.

Sure, it can be hard. But so can everything.

It's just a matter of finding the beauty.

Dedicate Your Summer To Bettering Yourself For Yourself, Not Your Ex

Why waste energy on an ex who doesn't care about you anymore?


I'm single for the summer (yet again, no shock there) but this summer there's something in the air that just feels different. It's the feeling of true acceptance of my single status.

Last summer I was single when I really didn't want to be. My heart with still holding out for a guy who wasn't interested in anything more than my friendship. It took me from late March all the way until Halloween to get over those feelings. However, while working through those tough feelings that summer, I came to enjoy my time on my own and not talking to anyone except my best friends. I didn't have to worry about when I'd get a text back, or if I'd be left on read, or who he'd be out with since I wasn't around. The only thing I needed to worry about was my paychecks and tan lines.

Sometimes after breaking things off with someone who you put so much effort into, whether it was a boyfriend, an almost relationship, or even a friend with benefits, it's easy to want to show off on social media and make them regret ever hurting you or ending things. Why? It's a nice little ego boost, sure, but after those few seconds of glee from the fact that you know they've seen and maybe even liked your picture or your tweet, or saw your story on Snapchat, do you still feel happy? No, you go right back to feeling like crap, whether you want to admit it or not. Stop making yourself all about them when that ship has sailed and start being all about you.

Your ex is off doing their own thing, maybe thinking about you, but obviously not enough to want you back in their life the way you used to be. They are probably out there finding a new person to take your spot because they don't have you at their beck and call anymore. If they're also showing off to show you how much better they are without you or to make you jealous...why are you still following them or still participating in this sick little game for attention? Grow up and block them so you don't have to keep seeing their posts, or be adult enough to stop if you're doing the same as well. If it's only you posting, chances are you just look stupid, so stop before you really embarrass yourself. I was that person, and I know first hand how embarrassed I am for acting the way I did.

Summer is synonymous for doing whatever the hell you want. Wear what you want, say what you want, and be the best version of yourself that only a high dose of Vitamin D can bring out. Your ex is an ex for many reasons. You have to set aside the summer for you and what benefits you only. Don't concern yourself with an ex who doesn't care in the least about you anymore. Coming from someone who posted thirst traps aimed at a specific person along with countless shady AF stories on Snap and Insta in the hopes that this one person and their friends would see it, just stop and save yourself the energy as well as regret.

We're all adults, it's time to stop the petty posts and photos. Post your thirst trap for yourself because you're a sexy queen who doesn't need anyone but herself. Once you start focusing on yourself this summer, instead of your ex, you'll realize just have great it feels to truly be free.
