If you've ever tried to impress your crush and ended up embarrassing yourself instead, you're not alone. The road to love is often paved with moments of soul-crushing disappointment and shame. In the words of the late, great Aliyah, "if at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again." But before you do that, don't forget to share your embarrassing dating fails on the internet for the enjoyment of strangers.
Someone asked women on Reddit: "What have you done to try to impress a guy, and it backfired?"
1.) From DarthPandaBear:
My third grade picture is easily my least favorite school photo for various reasons. I was rocking huge glasses, a snazzy sweater vest and green corduroy shorts combo. I also chose to give my crush this photo complete with my phone number on the back. Naturally as I was leaving after giving him this photo I thought it would be a good idea to turn around and gave him a big ole wink. The memory and the photo still make me cringe.
