16 Dating Horror Stories That'll Make You Secretly Grateful We're Social Distancing

We've all been there, stuck in a painfully long date that makes you want to rip your eyebrows out. The guy is a bore, maybe he won't stop talking, or maybe he just said something that is painfully offensive to you. Now let's be real, the dating world is a jungle and sometimes it may feel like every guy has the potential to go crazy. You may be thinking, it is something in the water? Bad dates happen and it is good to know you aren't the only one struggling.

Now while we are all locked down during this quarantine, it is safe to say none of us are going out on dates (or so I hope), and if you have crazy anxiety like me, you might even still be replaying that last god awful date in your head.

Here are 16 funny stories that will make you laugh out loud.

1. "I once went on a date with a guy that asked me to pick him up about 30 minutes before we were supposed to meet. The first red flag! When I picked him up he looked like a white wannabe gangster. Think 6 feet tall with blonde hair."

Giphy

2. "He showed me a video of himself as a kid actor and talked about himself the whole time."

3. "One time I talked to a guy for TWO weeks and he told me we would have 'cute athletic kids' and how I'd make such a cute athlete mom/wife for our family... and I don't even want to have kids."

Giphy

4. "He asked me how often I use the restroom and when my last menstrual cycle was."

I had to ask and yes this was the first and only date.

5. "My senior prom date turned out to be a drug addict and was having withdrawals and fainted AT PROM. I had to take him outside and sit with him the whole night."

Giphy

6. "He told me he didn't agree with the #MeToo movement, knowing I was a feminist."

7. "I had some guy on Tinder call me and ask me how many people I slept with and if I have STDs."

Giphy

8. "I kissed a boy in the back row of the movie theater standing up in front of the projector. It was super awkward."

9. "The guy said he had to go to the bathroom and then left completely. It was very disappointing."

Giphy

10. "I had to change all the locks and get a security system because he kept getting inside my apartment."

11. "He kept talking about what he looked for in a fiancee... it was the second date."

Giphy

12. "After a date, this guy asked me to drive him to a gas station. He kept asking the guy at the counter for $2 cigarettes which they didn't sell there. Then he got angry and started screaming at the guy and told him he was a liar."

13. "He started crying in the middle of the date. I am all for emotions but wasn't entirely sure how to handle it."

Giphy

14. "I suddenly got really sick in the middle of the date so I told him I wasn't feeling well. Instead of taking me home, he brought me back to his apartment. Presumptuous much?"

15. "I went to dinner with this guy and when the waitress came over she asked if we were brother and sister. I said 'No' obviously, and he said 'Yeah.' I asked him why he said that and he replied with 'I'm not sure how I am feeling about this so at least I can attempt to go for that' and pointed to the waitress. I ate my free meal and left."

Giphy

Plot twist, when this person graduated, the guy started texting her like he still had a chance. As if she didn't forget what happened on the first date.

16. "On the third date we went to a bar to watch some baseball (he knew I was a baseball fan) and the Yankees were on, (I am a die-hard Yankees fan). He went on a 10-minute rant about how Yankees fans suck and they only like them because they like to win, not because they know about baseball and said 'Don't you agree?' I said 'Absolutely not, I have been a Yankees fan since I was 5' and he thought it was a joke. I showed him pictures of young me in a Derek Jeter jersey. He said I was a bitch and never wanted to hear from me again."

"Side note, the guy next to me was a Yankee fan too, he bought me a beer and we dated for three months."

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).

Netflix

"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
