"My Date Had Gas" and Other Dating Dealbreakers

Special Offer

Jyl, 28
“We were leaving the bar after a fun night when my date said, ‘Excuse me for a minute,’ and stopped to pee against a wall. We were on a busy street with cars passing by! He talked to me the whole time, then zipped up and continued walking to the car as if nothing had happened.”

Sangeeta, 26
“When the bartender asked for my date's ID, he said he didn't have it because of a DWI.”

Jessica, 29
“Dinner went well with this guy, then we went to a party. There, he led me to a bedroom. When I said I wouldn’t hook up with him because there were people on the other side of the door, he put a dresser in front of it. When I said we needed to get to know each other better, he said, ‘I’ll love you for tonight.’ At that point, I shoved the dresser aside and left. No thanks!”

Allison, 27
“I showed up for a blind date. He looked good and dressed well, so I was excited—until the snot started flowing. He stayed at the table and let his nose run all night instead of getting a tissue. My friends and I refer to him now as the ‘booger monster.’”

Shannon, 25
“My date’s cell phone rang several times while we were out. He answered all the calls—each from the same girl. Finally, after the last one, he hung up and told me the other girl was on her way to meet him. He said they had a lot of catching up to do and asked if I wouldn’t mind leaving.”
