I hope quarantine is treating you as well as it can. I feel like I haven’t told a story in a while, and I was talking with one of my friends about how dating can be kind of daunting. The conversation turned into us, sharing some of our dating horror stories.
While I was single, I went on a date with someone I had met on Tinder. We decided to meet at a local heritage park, and at first, the date seemed to be going okay. After a while, we sat down on a bench and started to have a more in-depth conversation. God, it turned into a mess. My date immediately started ranting about how his ex-fiance was bipolar, went off her medication, and was CrAzY and PsYcHo. They had got engaged and bought a house together. While she was pregnant, she cheated on him, left their home, and then put their baby up for open adoption without his consent. He then explained that she is the only one allowed to see their baby because of the lies she was telling about him. And, okay, I’m not saying that his ex-fiance wasn’t bipolar, but come on, this is suspicious for the first date!!! The date QUICKLY made even more of a U-turn, which I didn’t even realize was possible, when he said, “why are you scooting away? I don’t bite unless you want me too…” At the time, I couldn’t decide if I should scream or laugh. I quickly made my exit after wrapping up the conversation.
It was an interesting experience, and I’m always shocked to hear about dates gone wrong. Check out my first vlog, and if you have any dating horror stories to share, drop them below.
