Most likely you've been on a date where the entire time you were thinking, "Wait until my friends get a load of this." Whether it's the person you're with or the location you're in, strange dates happen for all kinds of reasons. A recent Reddit thread, "What's the strangest date you've ever been on?", received a ton of entertaining responses, which varied from endearing to downright creepy.
Especially in the age of online dating, it can be hard to know exactly what to expect from a date. You can end up facing a person who you have nothing in common with. You might find yourself planning an escape from your date the moment you begin a conversation or find that the other person is, or, sometimes, was, never interested. It's even possible you might be the reason the date is a weird one.
On the flip side, some couples shared stories where their strange dates actually led to long-term relationships or marriages. In the end, each date, no matter how odd, is a learning experience for the next one. Read on for some of the best Reddit submissions.
