Our readers have had some pretty rough dating experiences. See what they said on facebook.

Tiffany Lowden Burcaw: Looked nothing like his profile pic, and then his ex tracked him down and confronted him during our already horrible meal!
Denise McDannold: The time my date took me out to eat to spy on his old girlfriend :’(

Karen Vrabec: He showed up late for the first date because he was working on his jeep. We were supposed to go on a double date. I had to drive, he laughed horribly and drank too much.

Nicol Kocher Thompson: He showed up with his cat in his car—I’m allergic to cats

Cheryl Smith Kyser: The old “ I forgot my wallet” story……

Karen Vrabec: I forgot to set the emergency brake and my car started rolling down a hill.

Su Nimon: He picked me up, reached over to the back seat to turn on the boom box sitting back there because his car didn’t have a radio. It got worse from there.

Ashley Holderbaum: It was a blind date, he picked me up and we went to the comedy club in Akron. Little did I know we were meeting his friends there. No one talked to me. On the drive back he tells me he has a prosthetic leg and he felt like I was judging him. I didn’t even know! We never talked again.

Katie Kuceyeski: We went to a fair, and he flipped me upside down on one of the spinning rides, even though I asked him not to. I married him
6 years later, and now 10 years later I couldn’t ask for better.

Pam Oster: It seems to be common to tell too much about their “ex” or even multiple ones!

Jacki Schilling: It was a blind date and I was meeting him at his work. He managed a restaurant. He came out in a sweatshirt with ketchup stains, pants with flour all over, and covered in perspiration. (He could’ve brought a change of clothes.) We sat in the dining room and talked a little. Once he told me he was looking for someone who could use a wok and cook pork chops for him and his dad, I politely excused myself as he followed me out the door exclaiming that my food at his restaurant would be free if I would come back to see him. I’m paying for food elsewhere. LOL
