15 people share their 'I'm dating an idiot' moment.


Unfortunately, love gives us rose-tinted glasses, and when those glasses come off what we see can be quite embarrassing.

While everyone has their flaws, and any loving relationship is going to involve a trade-off of acceptance, there is a point at which you say 'really? I chose this? I gotta do better.'

If you've ever questioned your taste in partners after a particularly brain deadening conversation, then you are certainly not alone.

In a popular Ask Reddit thread, people shared the moment they realized they were dating an idiot, and it's a trip.

1. From butitsnotfish:

He told me he had a lot of 'inventions' and how rich he will be when one sells. I asked him to tell me more. He says his best 'invention' is eye drops that (with just one application mind you) eliminate the need for eyeglasses.

The guy is a mailman. Not a doctor. Not a scientist. And he wears glasses. So I said 'if these eye drops work why do you wear glasses?' The eye drops don't exist yet.

But when someone else actually formulates these fantasy eye drops my mailman friend thinks he will get the money because he 'invented' them by dreaming them up.

2. From diiejso:

I went on a couple dates with a woman who owned two large energetic dogs. When she bought them she was informed that she'd need to walk them every day to get them exercise and burn off energy.

To save time, instead of walking them she'd take them for a drive and thought that accomplished the same thing.

3. From ink4n3:

We drove past a windmill on a windy day. She commented how it was too windy out and they should turn the windmill down. She was dead serious.

4. From illogicalfuturity:

Kept telling me not to fall for online scams. She fell for a scam that was so clearly a scam even a brain-dead monkey could see it was a scam. She lost 15k and tried to sue everyone who told her it was a scam.

She also thought that when the chefs light the food on fire they add gasoline. She tried to do just that.

5. From RollinDeepWithData:

I was the f**king idiot. I thought a French press worked by putting the coffee on top of the plunger, lowering it in, and then pulling it out. My girlfriend really wrestled with whether she could keep dating me after that one.

6. From not-a-real_username:

It was when vampire-related shows and movies were in the height of their popularity. He became obsessed with vampires.

When we would go outside, he started to act like the sun was hurting him, and he would shield his face with his hands while groaning in pain. Think of Jim from The Office with his vampire prank...only he was more dramatic...and serious.

7. From CampoPequeno:

She didn’t know how to get to my house from anywhere but her house. Her work was about halfway between my house and hers, but she had to drive home first every time before she could drive to my house.

*this was pre-smart phones

8. From pocket4129:

He was trying to make cookies and kept opening the oven for extended periods of time, letting out all the heat.

When I told him he was letting all the heat out by opening the door wide open and staring at the cookies, he told me I didn't know how ovens work because the temp setter said 400 so it was 400.

Took an hour to bake 1 sheet of cookies and said 'I don't know why it's taking so long.' Also insisted on doing this on Thanksgiving, tying up my oven and was pissed off when he found out the turkey would take 3hrs to cook.

As I'm sure you can imagine...did not work out.

9. From hughjonk:

He put a load of laundry in with mixed colour and whites...poured in bleach to whiten the whites...was shocked that the bleach bleached everything in the load.

I had to explain that the bleach will bleach everything you put in it as the bleach cannot discern what you want bleached or not...he was shocked, truly stunned, and flabbergasted.

10. From Achaern:

'Do you think getting drunk so often while I was pregnant was bad for him?'

She said this about her son who was five years old and had yet to speak a single word yet. She was not the primary caregiver.

11. From zachtheperson:

Me and this girl I was dating many years ago were watching a found footage movie on Netflix.

It was clearly edited, every shot used 'the rule of thirds,' to an almost painful extent in every selfie shot, and there were a million moments where someone was running for their lives, but kept the camera perfectly focused on themselves.

Half way through she told me she loves this movie because 'it's all real footage.' I thought she was f*cking joking until I realized she wasn't.

It took a solid half an hour of going through IMDB and Wikipedia pages before she finally understood how movies worked.

We ended up breaking up soon after for a completely unrelated reason involving talking animals, so that relationship was just not meant to last.

12. From Saminotsammy:

I introduced him to my stepsister. He said, 'weird, you guys look nothing alike.'

13. From summerof84ch:

He didn’t know where the ankle was. I hurt my ankle when he dropped me (on accident), and he went to look at it and said it looked fine as he was touching my calf. I was like well yeah cause that’s not my ankle. Silence.

Then arguing about how it was my ankle and me telling him it was my leg not my ankle and having to explain what an ankle was.

14. From inkseep1:

We went to a science museum and saw a display of a carboniferous swamp and I casually remarked that the land would have been different back then due to plate tectonics.

She had never heard that the continents moved so I explained how it worked with plates moving, earthquakes, and volcanoes. She still didn't believe me. So I found the plate tectonics museum display that explained it all.

And then she said she was amazed that I had enough pull with the museum to have them set up a display to support my lies.

15. From BrittaniaSky:

I dated a really manipulative and horrible person for a bit who would hide behind his weird interpretation of the Bible, 'I can do anything I want as long as I ask for forgiveness after. I can't go to hell no matter what I do because I'm 'saved.'

So one time, we were having a conversation about how he lets his friends bully me so I didn't wanna hang out with them anymore. The kind of healthy talk in relationships where you're just trying to feel understood.

I mention to him that if I ever saw people mistreating him I would come to his defense because I cared about him. He says, 'But I'm not you. Just because you pee sitting down doesn't mean I have to pee sitting down.'

In that moment I realized what I was getting myself into and broke it off immediately. Also, I had seen him pee sitting down. Just wanted to add that.
