Imagine this, you go on a date and manage to piss of your companion so much so that your first date turns out to be an A grade nightmare.
Here are 5 instances where one managed to do exactly what one should not have done on a first date.
The Real-Life ‘Piku’
It was one of my cousin’s first dates; they had set up the meeting via a dating app. My sister, who has made a name for herself as a doctor, was completing her graduation back then. I remember how she had come back that day fuming from her ears. Apparently, the moment the guy had come to know that she was a doctor; he started narrating what his family ailments and private details. In fact he specifically mentioned that his family suffers from chronic constipation and wanted suggestions from her to get rid of it.
Could it get any worse? Before parting ways, he insisted that he would call her up again in case there’s a need in his family. I don’t know whether he called back, but one thing is for sure my cousin is never going out with him, ever again!
He Came! They Ate! She Fainted!
When you have set up a date with someone, what do you expect? Certainly not what my classmate faced once. She had a crush on this guy for a very long time. She schemed for days with her best friend to somehow get him to ask her out, and that had finally happened.
Everything was set. They were scheduled to meet at one of the most popular hangout places in the city. My friend, who was pretty excited about the date, reached the place fifteen minutes early. She had to wait (obviously) and she was quite happy to do that. However, the wait was getting longer. And eventually after an hour her ‘he’ arrived. She breathed a sigh of relief.
It did not get off to the kind of start she would have liked. But she was quite hopeful. The guy was quite hungry, and placed the order in a jiffy. Meanwhile he forgot to ask what she would have liked to have. My friend was too mesmerized to interrupt him. Food finally arrived and it turned to be non-vegetarian (my friend is strictly vegetarian). Failing to voice her food habits, she put one spoonful in her mouth. Next she was making a beeline for the washroom. As she came back to their table, she fainted. She woke up at her hostel room beside her roommate.
Dream date well and truly over!
The Secret Sharer
Throughout the evening, my friend’s date kept on repeating, “Tell me something that you have never told anyone else. Share a secret with me.” My friend who was literally pissed off by the end replied, “If I haven’t told anyone, why on earth will I tell you, that too on our first date?” It‘s certainly not a secret any more why that date had a premature ending!
My brother was going on a date for the first time and he was pretty excited about it. But who could have thought that it would culminate into such a disappointing one. The girl who he was supposed to meet was late by more than an hour. When she eventually showed up, she kept on narrating how she used to wait for her former suitor and how he annoyed her in different ways every time they used to meet. Even when they were parting ways, she kept talking about how he would never drop her home.
Guess, the Ex-factor was way too overwhelming.
The Match-Fixing Expert
And, lastly a horrible first date experience with which I can relate to very much. It was one of my teammate’s first date. My teammate that day got a real lesson on how cricket matches are fixed by the bookies. It was certainly a learning curve for him. But then, who would like to get a lesson when you are on a date!
A first-ball duck which my teammate will never forget!
It is very much possible that all the victims of such horrifying first dates will be all smiles when they think of it now. But certainly, no one would like to face such a situation ever again. That’s how horrifying they had been! However, they have moved on and many have managed to fulfill their dream date as well. And we believe that if you have ever experienced such terrible incidents, your dream date is also not too far away. So keep calm and believe in Ishq!
