Default Your Worst Dating Experience

I was wondering if anyone else had nightmare dates before they found 'the one'?

I met one guy and we were getting on so well. On our third date, we're eating dinner in this Mexican restaurant and he comes out with the immortal line 'Of course, blacks aren't as intelligent as whites...'
That was the end of that one.


And then there was the guy who walked with a limp all the time and eventually, (after three weeks when I was comfortable asking) I asked him why he had a limp and he told me he had cut himself shaving.....when in fact he'd had a leg amputation from cancer... He was a bit of an angry guy and that went no-where.

Then there was the fabulous date I had.... and it was going so well, and we had coffee and then it turned out he was a foot (and shoe) fetishist, but sadly it didn't ring my bell.

And then there was 'bad breath man' who I had to spend an entire day with once, and I nearly passed out from the smell. Absolutely fetid.
That was the end of that one.

There are others, I just have to remember them.

What are yours?

Well....I had a date with this bloke when I was younger and he kept his left hand in his pocket the whole time. I thought that this was strange but being young I let it go.

The following dates he did the same and I began to suspect he was married (hiding the wedding ring - I know how stupid that sounds now - I mean he could easily take off a ring).

It turned out, during a pool match, that he had to take his hand out of his pocket - whereby I found he had a paralysed arm and it had withered away. He had refused amputation and just used to stuff it into his pocket.

Playing pool was a funny sight to see - he used to pick his left arm up with his right arm and throw it across the table to balance his cue on

You should have played poker with him. You could have cleaned him out if all he had was a crap hand...

You all know my worst one, but just before Christmas, I met a girl in a bar, and we went out on a date. We were getting on ok, and I was explaining about my job. As I was doing so, she pipes up:

"Oh, so you're not in finance then?" To which I reply:

"No, I'm a theoretical pysicist." She looks all downheartened and dissapointed, then says:

"Oh, I was really looking for someone in finance..."

This (and other dating experiences) has lead me to conclude that many Sydney women are superficial at best, f***ing shallow at worst.

The one I met from the internet who said on his profile that he was 47 - if he was a day under 60 I would have ate my hat!

I found myself in her bedroom just about to undress.

This was away from home somewhere on a 'business' trip - years ago.

Unfortunately all her crazy mates returned home, got jealous and next thing I knew I was trying to fight myway out of house with 3 blokes (it was more but you'd think I was making it up). Luckily I'd stuffed my wallet somewhere safe.

It was all a bit of a blur but I can still remember it vividly. Even now, I remember connecting with this bloke and making a satisfying mess of his nose.

The court case was a breeze, a free sightseeing trip back and a bit of public compo.

A tad sore, I did get to fight again the next day. This time it was with another bloke who was disgusted I hadn't done enough damage the night before. He was quickly despatched as I was sober and he wasn't.

Some people are never pleased.

Hmmm... have a couple.

Aged 14, took this girl Julie (me Julie) to the cinema, only couldn't actually afford a ticket, so lifted the latch on the fire exit and snuck in. Sat down, put my arm round her, settled down to watch the film. Turned out it was a soft porn film, some dodgy Lady Chatterley film or similar. She removes my arm from her shoulder and throws it back at me, storms out of the cinema via the foyer. Manager sees us, says 'Oi, what are you doing in here, this film's an 18' and chases after me with his show-you-to-your-seats torch. Got dumped the next day via her best-mate 'Julie says she doesn't want to go out with you any more and she says you're a randy pervert'.

Aged 15, took a girl for a nice 'romantic' walk on the common, find a quiet spot in the woods, sat down, beckoned to her to sit down next to me, she goes to sit down and says 'Urghhhhh.. what's that smell'. Yes, I'd sat down in a dog shit so large it could only have come from a St Bernard. She legged it, I walked home disconsolately.

I once went out with a stripper, one night he got very drunk and decided that everyone in the pub wanted to see his 'act'

He was seriously strange, some of the other stuff that happened while I was seeing him:

He invited me to a party, along I go only to find out that his mate who was getting engaged was actually his ex-wife and he went with the intention of starting trouble until he realised that his son was there (thank god for that!)

I went to see him after I'd finished work one night (at 10:30pm) and he was really drunk and locked me in his house. I had to wait 4 hours until he went to sleep to be able to get out.

I saw him three months later while I was out with another guy and he asked me why I fell out with him
