8 reasons people had to leave their dates halfway through – and it wasn’t always the other person’s fault


We hope time is a healer and these lot have managed to see the funny side

It’s almost inevitable that at some point in your life, you’ll have a romantic encounter which left you less than thrilled.

The modern-day minefield which is dating plays a big part in this.

While there is nothing quite like the euphoria which comes with having a brilliant date, there is also nothing quite as crushing as having a disastrous one.

Time is a great healer though, and, with the right outlook and support, the latter eventually make for a great story.

Because even though it only lasts for a few hours, a lot can go wrong during the course of a date – and as these Whisper confessions show, it’s not always down to the other person.

1. It’s a numbers game

“I went on a date and as we waited in line he got the number of a girl standing right behind us…so I left him right there.”

2. Don’t call me ‘bae’

“He called me his new ‘bae’. I got up and left. I just can’t respect anyone who uses that term, it’s just so stupid.”

3. Nevermind

“I went on a blind date tonight. I left halfway through because he didn’t know who Nirvana was.”

4. Laugh, and the world laughs with you?

“On a date tonight I said ‘lol’ mid laugh.

“I apologised, excused myself and left.”

6. Don’t try to change me

“I went on a date and the dude asked me if I would consider having my gauges and piercings closed, tattoos removed and dying my hair black for a second date with him.

“I got up and left him.”
