Christine and her friends were out the other day and got deep into a conversation about turn offs. This will eventually lead us to the Text Question of the Day. She apparently went on a first date with a dude who drank a bug out of a beer instead of returning it and she couldn’t even imagine resting his mouth on hers for awhile. Steve went out with a girl who only talked about her ex and I went out with a girl who was grinding on another dude on the dance floor. Very good grinder though.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What did someone do on a date that turned you off?

  • Cleaned under his fingernails with his knife and fork.
  • Ate my food off my plate when I was in the bathroom.
  • Said he's a packers fan. I married him anyway.
  • “If you put in gas I’ll buy your dinner” It was taco bell
  • I once had a date that wouldn't stop rubbing his (somewhat greasy) nose on my arm/shoulder. Literally non stop, I got so uncomfortable I slid off the couch onto the floor, saying my back was hurting.. of course after a few minutes he followed suit, then continued the whole nose running thing. Ick! I ended up taking a 45 minute shower afterwards, the residue/grease on my shoulder was disgusting
  • Really wanted to go out with a guy in college that I thought was cute, but then he said he had to ask his mom how much money he could take out of their joint bank account before he could take me to dinner…
  • He only drank from his cup through a straw without lifting it from the table
  • Tried to forcefully kiss me and stuck his tongue down my throat....I totally wasn't ready for it and it grossed me out!
  • Had one that smoked that turned out to be pregnant. Had another that answered a call from her ex.
  • Got arrested for his 2nd drunk driving in my parking lot after I ditched him on our horrendous date. I was fast asleep when he got arrested. Only reason why I know that happened is he called me from jail the next day to pick him up from jail Just to clarify I did not pick him up
  • My ex spent our entire first date looking at her phone. I should have seen the sign.
  • Dumped me 1/2"way through at a concert because I didn't win back stage passes.
  • Told me they hated Star Wars.
  • His hands were smaller and softer than mine.
  • Told me I was bigger than he hoped, but then said he would still be willing to show me to his friends for their approval if I wanted to go out that night... let's just say I didn't meet his friends
  • The guy came back from the bathroom and told me he “emptied his dinner if I knew what he meant”….
  • He told me he was married. there were no more dates.
  • Told me I was to fat for his usual type. Mother fisher
  • Tipped really low. Instant turn off.
  • He called me the wrong name
  • Ordered my dinner for me after I already ordered for myself.
  • Asked to sleep over saying he was too tired to drive home and only lived 15 mins away max… boy bye
  • Told me they could get their own door. I was naive to think chivalry was a noble gesture…
  • Hated feet…..and I greeted him at the door in a pair of sandals not knowing…….he covered his eyes and told me to go change my shoes. Had to give him the boot!!!
  • Told me, "I love ya, you're just like my sister."
  • First date - Announced out loud for myself and the adjacent table of college boys to hear that he was recently checked and can proudly say he was STD free.
  • Tried to drown me. He held my head under water to see how long I hold my breath.
  • We were at Starbucks and he wouldn’t put his paper down to have a conversation.
  • Went on a first date with a guy who said he was really passionate about our college football team (as am I!) met at a bar to watch an NFL game, guy attempted to order me a water instead of the Bloody Mary I ordered and then said I don’t think women are supposed to like those and then proceeded to tell me the whole time how we were 100% compatible...eventually started stalking me and following me around campus.
  • Showed me a hole in the bottom of their foot.
  • Talked marriage on the blind date we were on. Needless to say that was the first and the last date
  • Rummaging through his change jar in his car fire a big mac at mcdonalds
  • Spit his gum out laughing and then picked it up and put it back in his mouth
  • It was our first date, he showed up buzzed which I didn't know, proceeded to drink a ton, by our second stop (a bar, after bowling), he was so drunk he threw a rolled set of silverware at a car backing up near us as we were on the patio. He shouted at them, and was overly loud and obnoxious to others at the restaurant. Turns out this was his way to deal with being uncomfortable around a pretty girl out of his league!
  • At a bar having a drink, this fool is texting other girls and talking about it to me … then BLOWS HIS NOSE RIGHT WHEN OUR FRIED PICKLES CAME OUT! I used the good ol’ “ope, gotta get home to the kiddos, here’s my half of the bill, take care!”
  • We had hit it off through text messages and conversations. He asked me out and we went to dinner. When he came to pick me up, he sat on the road at the end of the drive and I had to walk down to get to his vehicle. We went on the date and we each got a margarita. After 1 margarita he got very quiet and started falling asleep. He ended up watching the game on tv and couldn't hold a conversation. I made an excuse to go home early. He dropped me off again at the end of the drive and it was already dark so I was totally annoyed. I just scratched it off as a bad date. A day later I get a text saying "I had a great time can we go out again". I did not say yes

First we put him in the back seat with one of the guys while I rode shotgun. Then my friends sat across the food court from us but in clear site of us. At the movie they purposely came in after us when the previews started sat about three rows behind us and threw popcorn at him on and off during the movie. After he is in back again and I ask to be dropped off at another friends work so I leave the car before him and my two friends took him back to base. We were all in the Navy stationed in San Diego.
