First dates have the potential to spark a beautiful connection between two people. They also have the potential to go horribly wrong. Reddit user u/Itz_Syth asked: "You have five seconds to ruin a date, what do you do?" and the responses had us waving for the check.
Two Packs of Pork Rinds
From Reddit user u/Reave1905:
My sister told me about a quiet pub date she had with a guy recently who bought himself 2 packs of pork scratchings. He opened both bags and separated them by most crunchy to least crunchy and then would pick 2 up at a time and ask her which one he should eat next. He did this for the whole date.
They didn't have a second date.Awkward date?
Having A Paper Checklist
From Reddit user u/sqqueen:
While gazing at a 2-page 10-point font checklist.
Reddit user u/TheGratePumpkin replied:
That happened to me. I was in my 30s. She had a checklist. An actual paper checklist, and a pen where she scored my answers on a 10 point scale.Awkward date?
A Lock Of Hair
From Reddit user u/LydiaAgain:
One time a guy leaned over and deeply smelled a lock of my hair within the first couple minutes of our meeting for the first time. I made up an excuse and left.
Reddit user u/OrangeCreeper replied:
Nope nope nope nope nope nope.Awkward date?
Saying 'I Love You'
From Reddit user u/hotsingleinyourarea1:
"I love you" learned that the hard way. I was in high school and I asked a girl out, we went to this burrito place and my mind was like "aight, ima leave," and I accidentally said "I love you" we both looked horrified and I just slowly left.Awkward date?
