First dates can be so exceptionally awkward. It's like a job interview for a job you're not even sure you want. You're out with someone you don't know well, aware that the night could turn into something romantic and wonderful, or boring, or worst of all, just plain awful. Sometimes the awfulness is funny, though — maybe not at the time, but looking back. These Redditors shared their funniest worst first date stories, and while the dates were certainly terrible, the stories are hilarious.
I met up with a girl I'd met on OKcupid, we had planned to go to this little coffee shop. I get there about 15 minutes early and find that the place is closed inexplicably. I then return to my car to find out I had locked my keys AND phone in my car.
So I had no choice but to just sit and wait for her to show up so I could explain to her that the place is closed AND ask her to help me get my keys out of my car.
