What was your worst first date ever?

What was your worst first date ever?

Choosing my worst first date ever was a toss up between 2 very different types of guys.

First, there was the uber-rich, uber-arrogant guy with whom I went hiking in the Okanagan Valley on a very hot summer’s day. Despite claiming to be an ‘experienced’ local hiker, he neglected to bring his own water supply and ended up drinking nearly all the water I’d brought for my own use.

On top of that, he broke the cardinal rule of hiking — walk only as fast as your slowest hiker walks — and the ‘slow’ person was me. I actually wasn’t that slow, but he was at least a foot taller than I and his strides were therefore that much longer. He’d bound up the hill ahead of me, sit on a rock to wait until I’d caught up and as soon as I did catch up, he was off again, meaning I was accorded no rest. (My own fault, I could have, and should have just taken what rest I needed).

So, by the time we reached the top of the mountain, I was dehydrated to the point of feeling dizzy and fatigued. I had no choice but to either risk more serious dehydration or drink from a small lake which might contain Giardia parasites.

Desperately wanting to get off that mountain and away from this extremely inconsiderate man, I took a chance and drank from the lake.

Fortunately, the water was fine and I never saw the man again.

The other worst first date — ugh. Maybe this was the worst.

From the moment I laid eyes on the man, I knew this would be our only date.

He was unkempt, unfit and sad. He spent the whole date oggling me to the point of drooling (and I’ve never been a stunning beauty queen by any stretch, so I could tell the guy was desperate). When walking out of the restaurant at the end of the date, he stopped by his car and gave me a huge bouquet of flowers which had wilted in the heat. Hmm… had he left them in the car just in case he decided he didn’t want to see me again? In any case it was an awkward gesture.

Personally, the latter was the worst, because I hate feeling sorry for, or disappointing someone who feels differently about me than I do about them.

So, what was YOUR worst first date ever? Spare NO details! Leave a comment below.
