14 Horrific Online Dating Stories

List Rules
Vote up the online dating experiences that are true horror stories.

Online dating has become one of the most popular ways to find love. Hiding behind your computer screen in the safety and comfort of your home is so much easier than dragging yourself out to a club or bar, trying to be friendly and personable. What could possibly be better than looking for potential mates on your own terms, while kicking back in your PJs?

However, most people who have spent any amount of time "playing the field" can tell you their fair share of horror stories. Enduring uncomfortable dates and awkward chitchat is just a small part of the process of finding "the one." 

Online dating can sometimes bring out the worst in people. Some lie about who they are, what they do, or what they look like - but that's just the beginning of the iffy experiences you're likely to encounter trying to meet someone through a dating website.

Below are some of the most outrageous internet dating nightmares. Vote up the tales of woe that make you grateful you've never had to experience them, and vote down the ones that aren't so bad.
