Who doesn't love putt-putt? At least 85 percent of the general population, but Liz's date hadn't gotten the memo. "He kept saying 'bro' and asking to play putt-putt," she said. "I just didn't understand the appeal of either of these things."
Here's one of my own personal anecdotes: Loud talking in a quiet restaurant. Tone it down a notch, guys, you're hurting my eardrums and making a scene.
Feminine hands have ruined many a budding relationship. Two different women noted that they just couldn't get past their guys' tiny, cutesy girl hands. "It was like watching that Burger King commercial for mini burgers," said Katherine.
Katherine had apparently dated some real gems, because she added another quirk to her list of deal-breakers. "He kept telling me who he — and apparently others — thought his celebrity look-alike was," she said. "It was way ambitious, and he kept mentioning it."
"Within five minutes of meeting my date, he tried to kiss me," said Elizabeth. His reason? "He said my lips were the softest he had ever seen!" Boundaries, dude. You crossed 'em.
Somehow, this seems similar to the serious problem women have with girl hands. Wyndi's date had dainty wrists that he tried to protect with a brace, but it wasn't working for him. "He kept taking it off, and then putting it back on — off, on, off, on." Emotionally exhausting. Do you have dainty hands or not, bro?
Here's another one of my own. While there's no need to feel embarrassed about a first-date bathroom visit, one guy I dated left me by myself at the symphony five times when nature called. Still no clue what that was about (and I didn't stick around to find out).
Asking for a picture of your date is probably off-limits. "He asked to take pictures of me to keep on his phone after the third date," said SK's own Maria Mora. Creepy, much?
Amanda's date revealed on their first date that he "always wanted to date a curly-haired girl so he could complete the circle." He was able to cross that off his list while she crossed him out of her life.
Sometimes, though, things work out against the odds. "My date showed up wearing jean shorts, Timberland boots and a braided leather belt. It wasn't 1995," said Laura. They've been happily married for eleven years.
