Scary online dating stories

On a first date when I was a freshman in college, we were going to go to the reservoir for the afternoon on a beautiful Indian Summer day.

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."I went on a four-hour (FOUR-HOUR) Tinder date with a match who proceeded to walk me through the intricacies of Excel. Hours." -Jo, 22"I met a guy on Tinder and drove to a different state just to meet up with him.

No cell phone back then, so I was stranded out at the reservoir with a loser who clearly had no respect for me. There was a huge filthy mess of dishes in the kitchen, and a mountain of dirty laundry in the bedroom."You can start wherever you want," he said, and flicked on the TV.

I felt beyond "used." I had to give plasma so we could go on this crappy outing and then I got sick so he proceeded to drink all the beer! ) I was very naive and I felt so embarrassed for him, that he thought that this was even remotely close to acceptable human behavior, that I downplayed the whole event and tried to pretend it had never happened. When I asked what the h--- he meant, he replied that in India, the women do all the cleaning, so I'd better get started. I did a summer internship at a museum years ago when I was in college.

I was really happy about it because I considered this guy a colleague and thought it was really nice of him to want to keep in touch with me. He was driving a rented sports car, a little flashy for a guy on a conference trip but ok.

He was about 15 years older than me, but that didn't matter because this was a dinner between friends. He was dressed like a man going for a night at the clubs as well. He suggested we see a movie and I was a little surprised but agreed.

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.' A few days later—when I hadn't responded to any of his texts or Tinder messages—he texted me and called me out for being 'that rude type of girl who ghosts men for no reason.' Ew." -Shauna, 23"I used to use Ok Cupid, and guys who were way older than me would always message me weird things (one actually propositioned me for a sugar daddy situation). Then he made a big deal about telling me his, which was 50 points higher. He also told me that he got a soccer scholarship at the school where I work, but decided to go to a different college. DENIED with an SAT score waaaaay below what he'd told me!

" -Jessi, 25"I had one guy bring his entire office to our first date because they had an office pool going about how it would go and didn't trust him to be honest.

And then when I kicked him out, he asked me for my Wi-Fi password so he could get an Uber." -Michelle, 24"I matched with a guy on Bumble, and we arranged to meet at a Mexican restaurant.

I see him waiting outside and attempt to quicken my pace (no one wants to awkwardly make eye contact for an entire block)—all the while trying to strut my stuff, of course.

I thought dinner would be us chatting about our work and what's new in our lives. I finally told him I really wasn't feeling well and had to leave. Instead he drove me to a different bar and insisted I sit down and "drink the taste out of my mouth". I told him I was going to go into the bar and call a cab if he didn't drive me home immediately.
