    Told you I would keep my eyes peeled for this… Really made me laugh, although it does seem you managed to find some real ‘special’ dates.

    It makes me quite glad that I’m married and don’t have to go through all this crap any more!

    This was brilliant, I love reading all your posts, they brighten my day. I had one date where the guy turned up and looked nothing like his pictures and then admitted that they were 5 years old. Another date I had been so drunk the night I met him that when we met up for a drink I had no clue who I was looking for, so awkward. I feel like I want to write all my dates down now ? Great post xx

    I loved reading this!!! Although they seemed awful at the time at least you got some great stories out of it 😀

    I have 3 memorable first dates:
    1: the guy was boring, he talked about supermarket baskets having bigger holes now as his Flake kept falling out the bottom.
    2. I was 27, he was days from celebrating his 20th birthday… I didn’t know that before the date.
    3. I got so, so drunk I threw up in the pub toilet. He then leant in for a kiss :/

    1. I met a guy in the smoking area of my favourite club in Aberdeen. He lived in Edinburgh and he was a wedding singer! I was feeling hesitant about going on a date with him…women’s intuition…but my friends convinced me and since I was already going to be in Edinburgh that weekend, I thought "what the hell!" The date started off really well, until he told me he’d been in prison for GBH. He’d come home and caught his ex girlfriend cheating and thrown the guy down some stairs. He didn’t seem sorry. Also don’t like to be shallow, but he had TINY, TINY HANDS. Like, the hands of a child. And the next time he was in Aberdeen, I had 37 missed calls and ended up having to meet him in person to tell him I wasn’t interested and then he shouted at me in the street.

    2. Went out with a guy who works abroad so we’d been speaking for ages before we met up. We really, really liked each other and were both really hoping we would get on as well in real life. Again, the date started off brilliantly. Then he said, "So…how many people have you slept with?" Being the person I am, I thought, if you really want to have an awkward conversation, LET’S HAVE AN AWKWARD CONVERSATION. I told him how many people, the age at which I lost my virginity etc etc. He went on to ask the last time I’d had sex and who with (Five days ago with someone he knew). No second date.

    Not technically a bad date as such, more just what happened afterwards… I had a good date with a guy I met at a party years ago. We decided to go on another the following weekend, the night before we had been texting and he said he was feeling a bit ropey and might have swine flu, which seemed a bit overdramatic, especially as he seemed to think he would still be able to meet me the following day. Anyway I half-expected to be cancelled on; what I DIDN’T expect was a text an hour before we were meant to meet saying he was really sorry but he’d decided to get back together with his ex! She hadn’t even been mentioned previously so it came as a bit of a shock… think they’re actually married now so I guess it was worth it for him, haha!

    Haha the first one of these cracked me up! I was set up on a date years ago who kept talking about football non stop even when I asked him to stop! He then told me that he was only on the date to get back at his girlfriend! Great post lovely!

    Love this post. I had my first date after a 3.5 year relationship on Saturday. Half an hour in to it and he goes ‘oh my sister is also here, and she’s already taken a stealth photo of us for the family whatsapp group’

    Um, as if I wasn’t nervous enough already! I was on edge the rest of the day after that and spooned the date right up, ha.
