    He Was Clearly Not Over His Ex

    From Redditor u/nextxoxexit:

    Met a very sweet guy in his 30s out for drinks. He showed up in a luxury car and proceeded to tell me about his lavish lifestyle. I'm not a gold digger in any way, so it didn't interest me, but he did have lots of nice things like a yacht, several beach homes, foreign cars.

    Eventually he realizes I'm not into his things and actually there to get to know him. So we begin talking about ourselves and whatnot. He mentions briefly that he's going through a divorce but that "he's fine."

    Several glasses of wine later, we make it back to his place and we get frisky. It ends within literally minutes... which was a letdown but hey, whatever. We all have our moments.

    He then proceeds to put a robe around me and spray me with perfume. Which he then explains was his wife's, who left him for a guy who worked for him. He begins sobbing and begging me to just let him cry in my arms... with her robe and perfume on.

    At this point, I've pretty much accepted that this dude [is] a full-on grief-overcome psychopath. And that I'm probably going to wind up chained up in his basement with his wife's face taped onto my body or dead.

    I keep trying to find reasons to get up like "I have to pee" or "May I check my phone? My sister will find it strange if I don't come home," but he won't budge.

    All at once, he gets up and drags me to his car. We're driving in the middle of nowhere and I'm thinking, "So this is how I die," when he finally pulls into a countryside driveway and lays on the horn.

    He pulls out his phone and records his wife and [her partner] looking out the window at him. He grabs me out of the car and says "I'm f***ing other people too, Diane!" And we drive off before the cops could arrive. Though I wished desperately those people or the cops would intervene.

    We get back to his house, [and] he carries me to bed and says, "I'm not insane. I just need commitment." He has the crazy eyes that only truly sick people can have. He puts his wife's expensive jewelry on me and goes to sleep.

    I got up in the middle of the night and without grabbing my clothes found my keys and got the f*ck out of there. My only issue was I was parked in his garage, so I had to use the button to open it, which I knew would wake him. I waited till the door was just open enough and backed out of there like a bat outta hell.

    He called and texted me a million times asking, "Why did you leave beautiful?" and "When do I get to see you again?" I blocked his number, and thankfully he didn't know my full name or any other way to locate me.

    I pawned the jewelry and never called the cops. I blamed myself for it happening since I willingly went into his home on the first date.

    And I never had a one night stand again.

    A Familiar Face Makes A Cameo Appearance The Next Morning

    From Redditorl u/Competitive-Cry1989:

    Met a woman at a bar. We quickly get back to her place. In the morning, I have to get to work, so I get dressed and head downstairs. I cross through the kitchen to get to the back door we came through last night. As I grab for the handle, I quickly glance left and see an older woman sipping coffee.

    That woman happened to be my teacher from when I was in 3rd grade.

    I went so red. Good god, my cheeks. We make eye contact. And I slowly exit.

    Forgot Her Name And Tried To Cover For It

    From Redditor u/machiavellicious:

    I'd gone out with a few friends, promptly got wasted, and by some small miracle ended up going back to this fairly attractive girl's place. Morning after, she decides to "sooth my hangover," but before proceeding she says, "You told me last night you don't really do one night stands, hope you remember my name?"

    I completely froze. 

    I buy some time by laughing, and through sheer luck I notice a picture frame with "Emilia" written on it in bold colourful letters.

    Yeah, that was her sister's name. She'd died the previous summer...

    Introducing Mr. Lemmon

    From Redditor u/shaka_sulu:

    Went on a date and I finally got a "Wanna come up to my place?" I never been to her place, so I was shocked that not only it was a small-size studio apartment, but she had eight cats there.

    So we're doing it while eight cats were staring at us the whole time. When we started doing it, Mr Lemmon jumped on her back. The only reason why I know his name was because as he jumped on her back, she said, "Mr. Lemmon, get off, you naughty boy!"

    She Cut The Brakes On His Car

    From Redditor u/Orphanleni:

    Had an OKCupid hookup with a girl who said she worked in her father's auto garage. Everything went fine and she wound up spending the night. I woke up the next morning, and she had snuck out. I had a text that said, "Why are there pictures of other girls on your phone?" 

    ...[These] were pictures of myself and friends, some of [whom] were girls, at bars and concerts and nothing particularly sexy.

    I thought to myself, "Thank God she ditched. I certainly don't want to hang out with a girl that will go through my phone while I'm asleep on the first date, or ever."

    Later that day, my car won't start. My mechanic said somebody had cut several wires for the ignition system.

    Bugged Out

    From Redditor u/deaner88:

    Went to this girl's house and we get down to it. So we head into her bedroom and ... I notice my legs are itching something fierce.

    I look down and find them covered in fleas.

    That was it for me. I pulled up my pants and ran out.
