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.

Best one that happened to me... girl showed up to the first date and stated she wanted 5 kids with the first in 11 months, before we even got seated. It was over before it started.
