If you’re single, you do your best to vet your dates, take time to filter out the most problematic direct messangers, and do your research. You try to set yourself up for the most pleasant date experience possible. You know that explosive chemistry won’t be possible every time, but you’re not asking for that—you’re just hoping for a night without an incident that will require you to call the police or write an Op Ed piece about. So long as your date doesn’t fright, insult, or disgust you, you can be satisfied with the experience. You don’t expect to be rewarded for putting yourself out there every time but, for goodness sake, should you have to be punished? No. Certainly not. But, sometimes, it can feel that way when you just get very unlucky. Here are the worst first date dilemmas that many women have experienced.
You’ve dated his friend
You get to talking about your friend groups, how you know them, who works where and is from where and you connect the dots…You’ve dated this guy’s friend. And, it wasn’t a good experience so who knows what that man has been saying about you (to your current date).
