HUB TELEGRAM — The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem — and these brave guys have stepped up to the plate. Even if you try to be the best boyfriend or date that you can be, you’ve likely done a handful of things on a date that you’d be ashamed to tell your mom — or your current girlfriend.
From being a bad communicator to propositioning before the time was right and so many other ridiculous things, we’ve all had those moments where, frankly we’ve done dumb sh*t on dates. While you shouldn’t beat yourself up too bad, the point of confessing your less-than-stellar dating sins is to learn from them and to be a better partner in the future.
That Guy Who Asked If She’d Wait For His Current Relationship To End
“I went out with a girl a few times and then started to disappear. I didn’t want to break things off with her but I met another girl I was into. When the first girl asked me why I was ghosting, I said: ‘Ummm. Well, I’ve been seeing a girl. But she’s planning to move, so I’m taking it back a little with her. I’ll definitely let you know when I’m free.’ I never heard from her again. And the other girl moved. Fail-fail.”
The Guy Who Asked If He Could Go Upstairs And F*ck
“I was out with this girl who was much younger than me. It was obvious that she was knew to the city and was really just impressed with anything and everything I did. I couldn’t see myself in a relationship with her, but she was hot, so I wanted to bang her. I offered to walk her to her door and was going to say something like ‘Let’s have a glass at wine at your place’ but instead, I blurted: ‘So, wanna go upstairs and f*ck?’ She looked horrified, turned away and slammed the door behind her. Can’t say I blame her.”
The Guy Who Got Drunk And Said The First Thing That Came To Mind
“I was on a second date with a girl that I liked. She was smart and gorgeous and I felt like she wasn’t that into me. I couldn’t really tell, but I wanted to see her again. I decided to get drunker so I could get up the liquid courage to ask her out. Instead though, as she was talking about something, I said, ‘You seem like the type of girl who only wants a relationship.’ She obviously didn’t know how to take that and changed the conversation, but the date died from there. She might have wanted a relationship, but not with me.”
The Guy Who Flat-Out Left
“I still feel really bad about doing this, but I walked into a bar and saw my date sitting at the bar. She didn’t look anything like her photos, so I just left. I texted her and told her I got sick and couldn’t make it. She tried to reschedule but I ghosted. I know it was rude, but dude, I just couldn’t.”
The Guy Who Got Another Girl’s Number (And Got Caught)
“I was out with this girl I had been on a few dates with. I liked her, but wasn’t sure if I wanted anything serious with her. After having sex one morning, we went to breakfast and I thought our waitress was gorgeous and much more my type. When the girl went to the bathroom, I started hitting on the waitress and was about to get her number when the girl walked back. She saw everything and walked out. The waitress and I have been dating for a few months now, though!”
The Guy Who Freaked Out (And Ruined It)
“I was really into this girl I was seeing for a month or so. I had been single for a while, and I felt like she might be someone I’d actually want to date long-term. She was fun and pretty, and we got along really well. I had this really bad day at work and she offered to come over. We had dinner, then had sex and the next morning, as she was getting ready for work she said, ‘I really like you.’ I don’t know why, maybe because of work or whatever, but I freaked out on her for putting pressure on us and that I couldn’t handle it and that she shouldn’t call me for a while. She cried and left, and I felt awful. I tried getting her back a day later and she wouldn’t have it. It’s been a while and I still miss her so much.”
