So, here’s the Worst of the Worst…
“Worst Date Ever” #1
” I was 17 and attending the local community college. There was this guy who started talking to me between classes. He was not attractive, but he seemed nice enough, so when he asked me out on a lunch date, I said yes.
We went in his car and were in an area I wasn’t really familiar with. He took me to some hole in the wall sandwich place. Our lunch conversation was very awkward and he was starting to make me uncomfortable. I insisted on paying for my own food to give him the hint that I wasn’t into him without being rude about it.
On the way back to the campus, we stopped at a gas station and he didn’t have enough money to pay for the gas, so I ended up paying for it because I really wanted to not be around him.
Then he dropped the bomb that he was a registered sex offender, but it was no big deal because it was only statutory rape. I was freaking out and would have gotten out of the car while it was moving if I had any idea where I was.
As soon as we were back, I got away from him as soon as I could. He kept trying to talk to me after that like it was all good until I had my male friends, who were all firefighters, threaten him off. I learned that day that I should always drive myself everywhere, and to not go on dates with weird, awkward guys.”
