When love goes loopy
Oh man, we've all been there, farted/burped/sneezed (delete as appropriate) on your date as he's leaned in for a kiss. It's enough to stop you dating forever. We asked you for your worst dating moments and boy did you come up trumps. Some of your stories were so bad they had us cringing into our early morning coffee. Yikes have you lot had some bad dates. Here are the best of the bunch, and be thankful that this didn’t happen to you!
Best Mate Blind Date
My friend had set me up on a blind date, and the boy she’d set it up with sounded really cute! She said he was so perfect for me, and I was really excited to meet him. I wanted to get everything just right, so I asked my guy friends what I should wear and how I should behave. They were all super supportive, especially my friend Zac who’s been one of my besties for years. He gave me loads of guy advice, so I was pretty much set up and raring to go. The date was at the cinema, so I set off early so that I could get their first, and waited for him to arrive. I got a bit nervous, what if I’d picked the wrong outfit or what if I didn’t like him? Just as those thoughts ran through my head he arrived. My mouth dropped open as Zac approached me, looking confused. My friend had set us up because we’re such good friends and she thought it was cute, and Zac had no idea either! Luckily we had a good laugh about it and went to see the movie anyway, but it was totally cringy at school the next day – everyone knew about our blind date!!

Right first off, it wasn’t technically a date. Well, it was in my head, but perhaps with six other friends being with you at Pizza Hut it’s not really a date, even though I told myself it was. Of course my crush was there and I was sooo happy. For some reason though, out of nerves or something, I started eating like an absolute pig. I had pizza on my nose, a mountain of food on my plate (my eyes were wayy bigger than my stomach), and a whole load of fit boys at the table. My crush was sitting opposite too, AND I had a whole load of herbs in my teeth. I am never going to Pizza Hut with the lads EVER again!

Double Date Ditch
About two years ago I went on a date with this guy I’d fancied for yonks and yonks. We both decided to ease our nerves that we could each bring a friend, and then we’d try and get them together at the same time. Sadly though, it didn’t go as planned. My crush (who was fittt by the way!) decided to dump me and go for my mate, which left me and his made just staring at each other all night. Cringe. I will never bring a friend on a date again, but at least we’re still friends.

Last year I was in the most boring ICT lesson ever, so I decided to have a go at making a PowerPoint presentation declaring my love for him. At the end of the lesson the teacher asked us to save some work we did in a previous lesson to the memory stick to show at parents evening. I was a bit paranoid I’d save my PowerPoint so I was careful. I put my work on the teacher’s memory stick and left the classroom. That evening everyone crowded into the hall to watch the presentations the class had created. Some were really good! Then it came to mine. The teacher had not checked the files before showing them, and I’d been so paranoid about what I was saving that I actually did end up saving the PowerPoint declaring my love. It played it to the whole hall and his parents stared at me for the rest of the evening! OK so he may have asked me out the next day, but I hope I never see his parents again!!!

I was doing the Duke Of Edinburgh Bronze award and my crush was in my group. I kept staring at him and watching to see if he was looking at me. Unfortunately, I didn’t notice a ginormous puddle of cow poo, and I tripped and faceplanted it. That made him notice me, and I had to spend the rest of the trip stinking of dung. I still haven’t lived it down and he gives me the weirdest looks. CRINGE!
