First dates pretty much fall into one of two categories. They’re either so good that you can hardly wait until the next time you see the person or they are so awful that they make you question whether there’s even any reason not to just remain single for the rest of your life.
These stories shared on Twitter with the hashtag #WorstFirstDate and, in some cases, again later on The Tonight Show by Jimmy Fallon, fall into the latter category and may just cause you give up on dating completely.
The being said, if you are a glutton for punishment and insist on continuing to go out on first dates with people, there are at least some lessons to be learned from these stories.
Protip #1: There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to mention your nostrils while on a first date. None.
Protip #2: Never do anything to your date called a “puppy trumpet.” Trust me on this one.
Protip #3: Your first words when she answers the door should never be, “It’s not pee.”
Got it? Good. Here a whole bunch more tales of first date failure that you can file away under “things not to do.”
