Worst online dating experience
I dashed out of my student house, and started to cross a side road.
Distracted by my phone, I wasn’t entirely paying attention when an Iceland delivery truck turned off without signalling, hitting me just above the knee and sending me flying.
The guy took me to stay at my friends, but I never did hear from him again…
I met a guy while rather wasted on a night out in a cheesy club – and should have known it wasn’t going to be a match made in heaven.
You might meet someone who collects scary china dolls for fun, for example, or a guy admits to once having put a pig's head in their housemate's bed in the name of revenge (No? ) But while bad dates can be a scary prospect, the best way to get over them is to share them, spesh in the lead up to Valentine’s Day next month.
1.) He was from Paris and my shallow teen heart obviously translated this as automatically ‘deep’, intelligent and romantic and therefore great date material 2.) He was a musician.
I’d just been dumped so when he asked me to go for a drink, I said yes. Then he made me go to Sainsbury’s with him to help him carry his groceries.
We were only meant to be having a quick coffee but he immediately launched into a rant about how terrible his life was now. There was pus he explained, and did I want to see it? Needless to say I wish I'd never met up with him. We met in front of the student union as he was trying to get people to sign up for mailing lists, and some how I ended up signing up for a date. Skip ahead a couple of days and I’m late for an important lecture and I had to floor my 1.1 Kia Picanto after my spa treatment ran over.
As we turned the corner the street was lit up with blue flashing lights.
The sirens were echoing off the Victorian brick walls and in the distance I saw police tape flickering in the wind.
