Blind dates are the worst. Watching them eat is painful.

I met my husband on a blind date instigated by my mother! How's that for embarrassing?

I've had 2 blind dates - both were awful. First guy was a setup from one of our legal interns. We didn't hit it off. I couldn't WAIT to get out of there. Second guy was through an ex-boyfriend. It was the brother of his new girlfriend. I said NO WAY! He finally talked me into just being at the same place and if it worked out - great, if not, no big deal. So met them both at this place, took one look at the guy and said no way, but he asked me to dance. I danced with him, just to be polite. I looked over and saw my ex-boyfriend dancing and said "Hey, who's that skank with Randy?" The guy replied "That's my sister."

That was the end of that.

Lodi, Randy has never been seen with a skank, dancing or otherwise. You've really hurt my feelings

Sorry Randy. And I'm also sorry I broke up with you but didn't tell you. I'm glad you figured it out after I wouldn't return any of your calls.

I went on a so-so blind date, but broke up with Lodi after I got my vision back.

I had a blind date a couple of times. It was terrible - they kept bumping into everything.

I think I told this story before, but I went on a blind date and we dropped by his apartment after he picked me up so he could get a jacket.

I asked to use his bathroom and when I lifted up the toilet lid there was a ring of algae that had grown so long it looked like bright green hair floating in the toilet!

I think it goes without saying that there was no second date....

Hell with blind dates !! I've been on dream dates that turned into catastrophes. A blind date isn't always the smartest think to do. A little advice is to try to talk to the person on the phone for a few minutes. That usually helps break the ice, if it isn't too cracked already. Just a thought.

Lodi, that green stuff in the toilet isn't as bad as my date's mother keeping dirty dishes in her bath tub, I almost puked. It looked like a week's supply of soup to nuts,covered with spaghetti sauce.
This "Ain't" no BS.

Liam, was the shower curtain closed? You're not`supposed to look in the tub! That's were the dishes from the kitchen go, so the kitchen looks clean! Be thankful you didn't get to see the bedrooms and those closets!

I had a blind date for high school. He was very nice. A little off balance as he went partway down the bowling alley with the ball. I guess that's one of the reasons I never dated much. Or married. But, hey, the residents in my mom's nursing home used to get together. I guess there's always hope.

I went on a blind date to some high school dance I don't remember. Guess she didn't think much of me, because as soon as we got to the dance I didn't see her the rest of the night. Geez, and I was even in a tux! Must've forgot to brush my teeth or something who knows.

Only blind date I ever had showed up with her leader dog-"Surch". Got to the head of the line at Mancy's Steakhouse in Toledo. Trouble started when we went to her place afterward and had to lock Surch in a closet to keep him from maiming me. Sweet girl though, a real rumble. I told her I looked a lot like Paul Newman.

I forgot, I did brush my teeth, or at least the tooth I have left anyways. Napoleon's a wee bit more attractive than I am Lodi, but thanks for the compliment!

My worst date turned out to be "his" worst date. I got sick and puked on my shoes. Never heard from him again......can't imagine why.

His loss.

Unless he was able to get the shoes cleaned with minimal damage.

I was set up on a blind date by my girlfiend in highschool, and needless to say the blind date and I have been married for 46 years so they all aren't so bad. charlotte

My daughter met her husband when he chased her down M St. in Georgetown ... she was in a car and he on foot. My son met his current significant other on the phone. She called him and they talked for 2 years ... every day ... until her divorce was final. When they finally met, he was surprised that she did not look like the high school picture she had sent. A happily married man for 46 years, I met my wife at a mixer. She walked in and we walked out together.

Every time I become friends with someone on this site it is a blind arrangement. I have many and feel lucky. I get pretty intimate notes. The only blind arrangement who I have actually flown to meet is Surreyman. Need I say more? I have driven and taken the metro. When someone comes to DC and tells me in advance, I love meeting, blind or not. Of course, Philly was a Kind of sorfraternity.

By the way ... has anyone considered Vegas for the next meet? Kaufman is there now and might have some insight on where to stay.

Have any of you answered an ad in the newspaper ... "Men Looking for Women" blah, blah, blah?

OMG! They are hilarious to read, but don't EVER answer them. Especially if he claims to collect antiques. This means that he has crap stacked on the porch, in the back yard, under tarps, in the barn ...

I speak from experience, although it did take two experiences to learn my lesson. I guess I'm an eternal optimist.

And if he says he likes cooking and going for long walks, it means you're never going to get a restaurant meal or a movie out of him.

And never answer "Women looking for men" either. They'll just set up a first meeting and stand you up for their own jollies ...

Wasn't a blind date, but I once broke my date's fingers by shutting them in the car door.

i would consider the first face to face meeting with someone you met online to be a blind date.

some were bad. some have turned into treasured friendships. one has become the love of my life -- mightydog.

and it was meeting mightydog for the first time that turned out to be the strangest.

he drove from FL to TN to meet me after several phone calls between us. when he arrived, his teeshirt was covered in blood splatters and he had a small gash on his forehead. i have to admit that gave me the willies for a few minutes.

he had stopped along interstate-65 to help a woman who appeared to be stranded. she reached through the passenger side window and grabbed his cell phone in the seat beside him. in the struggle for it, she konked him on the head with it. he finally wrestled it away and left her there.

so much for trying to be a good Samaritan!!

In my wild single days (back in the 80s) on one date I asked him if he wanted a bite. As I went to cut him a piece of halibut, the whole thing came off the plate into my lap. The next night I had a more casual date with someone else, and as I was telling him about the night before (waving my hands around in my usual animated way of speaking) I put my elbow down right into my pizza. It wasn't a good week for dating (though neither of them held my clutziness against me). I don't miss dating AT all!

Went on a blind date once.... Knocked my iced tea in her lap. Then spilled salsa in my own lap when I jumped up to help.....

We actually went out again just to see what catastrophe would happen next.... Second time got stuck in the mud after sliding off a slick road....

We just waved at each other after that.......
