Most Unbelievable thing a date has ever said to you.........

Anyone remember dating? I have a bunch of them, I guess I was scraping the bottom of the barrel with some of the women I dated:

1)One time, I took a girl I was dating to a sports bar. We ordered food, and the waitress asked if we wanted any condiments. My date said: "I didn't know you guys sold birth control stuff here!?

2)I asked a girl out in my anthropology class in college. On our first date, she says: "I know all you want from me is sex, should we just GET IT OVER WITH"??

I'll think of a few more and try to post them..............I think this thread could be fun........

It wasn't said to me, but when I was about 20 I went on a date encouraged by a mutual friend who told me she wanted to go out with me. Once I finally mustered to courage to ask her out, we did the dinner and a movie thing.

I asked the mutual friend what she thought about the date and she said, "He's really nice, but he drives too slow."

Didn't know that was a deal breaker.

That was weird..........

Maybe it was really: "He MOVES too slow"...........

That's not weird . I went on a date years ago with a guy who lived in NYC so he did not drive a lot and rented a car for our date . That was the scariest ride I ever had . I was ready to ask him to pull over so I could drive .

I still think it's weird in my case. Driving like a maniac and making your passengers fear for their lives is a little different than someone merely not speeding.

Forget the candles and wine, get at it! I like a romantic woman too.

I went on only one formal date in my entire life. I sealed the deal before the date was over. Courtship is not my forte.

Well, this is Texas after all. Once I had a date with a "cowboy." He came to pick me up in his step-side pickup and without going into detail I will say that he was "less than polished." As we drove off into the sunset, I sat hugging the passenger door. He slapped the seat between us and said romantically, "C'mon over here lil' gal."

Swoon.

That was also our last date. The End.

I don't really remember an 'unbelievable' thing a date has said to me...however I do remember the kissing. One or two of those guys...not so good.

Ok..I did think of one thing that was said, but it was a couple of years after dating a particular guy.

Back in the 'daze', I lived in a rural area so there was not much for people to do on dates. Mostly riding around, grab a burger, maybe see a movie and then go 'parkin'.

I dated this guy for a few months then the relationship fizzled out. A couple of years later I saw him again and congratulated him on his marriage and the fact that he would soon be a daddy.

He sighed, then said "Yeah, she's short, so she was easier to go parkin' with."



Darn my 5' 7" frame anyhow....

I asked a very tall girl out once. She was 6'2", and liked to wear heels, making her 6'5". We went out to dinner, and in the middle of it, she says: "I'm having a nice time, its not often a guy will go out with an AMAZON WOMAN"!!!

Being told, "I've taken you out for 3 dates and paid for everything. When are you going to hold up your end of the deal?" Needless to say, I told him if I'd realized the dates were just "trade" for sex, I'd have advised him to find himself a hooker.

The ironic thing is, I was really starting to fall for him, and he ruined everything with that insulting remark. I am not a "deal" one "closes."
