People have been sharing their dating horror stories on Twitter - and it’s making us truly grateful for our past, relatively uneventful experiences.
James Coston took to Twitter asking others to share accounts of the worst dates they’d been on and the internet certainly delivered.
From the guy who did the old ‘yawn and stretch’, placing his hand in dog poo, to the woman who went on a first date to McDonald’s and was later handed lingerie, here are their stories.
We were chatting about the film we just watched when he randomly blurted "I have nerve damage in my penis!" Then he told me how he hurt it 😬— Amanda Rocksalot (@deaaqua) September 20, 2017
She got drunk and threw up on the side of my car.— Mo (@mjjsmith2003) September 20, 2017
He picked me up, grudgingly took me to McDonald's (drive thru!) then to his house where he handed me lingerie and said he'd wait in bedroom😳— Krysti 🐘🏈 (@TheRuntSquad) September 20, 2017
halfway through I said, "this is a great first date," she replied, "this is our second we went out once 4 years ago."— Mikky J Wright (@mikkyjwright) September 20, 2017

When I was 15 I lay down on a grass verge with the hottest girl in our area. Put my hand straight in dog shit.— Stephen Dewar (@StephenDewar3) September 20, 2017
Brought his dog, took call from his mother, dog got into fight, he left to go to party. Reader, I married someone else and have no regrets— Fiona Campbell Hicks (@fionaalcampbell) September 20, 2017
Gum on plate first date--Gum on nightstand after 2nd date. Felt like a Seinfeld episode.— Mike (@wrigleyrat) September 20, 2017
