When it comes to bad date stories, most people have one they can tell — their own worst first date. Mine involved a guy pulling out of an actual list of questions when I went to the bathroom but refusing to share any personal information and then telling me I didn't know how dating worked and that I talked about myself too much. Oh, and that all my profile photos were terrible. Thanks, dude.
Though we all think we know what a great first date should look like, it isn't always easy to actually have one go according to plan. You know, the kind where conversation flows, you find mutual interests, and really get a feel for each other. “Asking great questions on a date can give you a lot of insight about the person sitting across from you,” Sarah Patt, matchmaker and dating expert tells Bustle. “By the end of the date, you want to be able to know if you connect with the person and whether or not you share similar lifestyles and values. Asking great questions will help determine if this person has what you are looking for in a partner so you can decide if their world is one you want to know more about, or become a part of.”
But sometimes, nothing can save a bad date. That's why when Jimmy Fallon asked users to tweet their #WorstFirstDate stories, some of them felt just too good (or bad) to be true. Seriously, take a look at this and you'll feel better about every awkward date you've ever been on. Because, if these stories are anything to go by, it could be worse — way worse.
