Do you have dating horror stories to tell, guys? We are asking because currently the tweeps over at Twitter are sharing theirs by way of an answer to gay American YouTuber and author Tyler Oakley’s prompt: “tell me your worst date horror story.” Here’s what the netizens have to say:
1- The horror of having to bear witness to his date’s fight with his ex-boyfriend.
Through the peephole, and says it’s his Ex. He tells me that he gets violent, and it’s best that I try to hide on the windowsill! This is a loft Apt Downtown, luckily on the 8th floor. He tells me not to worry that he sometimes smokes out there. I spend 45 on the edge grasping— 🌲Let it Snow⛄ Edwin Alvarez (@Ouicho) January 30, 2020

2- Sort of similar to #1 but this time the respondent walked out on his date.
Went on a date and his ex showed up and they literally got into a physical fight at Olive Garden… i had to exit stage right and never spoke to him again pic.twitter.com/vILC06ZNc5— anthony (@anthonygonnn) January 29, 2020
3- Fingers in his mouth.
We went to dinner and a movie. When we were in the movie theatre he put his arm around me and then tried putting his fingers in my mouth.— Steven Avocado (@StevenAvocado) January 29, 2020
4- The moment they discovered the two of them dated the same man at the same time.
Got to talking. Learned he was dating my ex at the same time I was for an entire 6 months 🥴 pic.twitter.com/pJuTWQbDoz— Vincent Lewis 🚨 (@vinlewist) January 29, 2020
5- “Gum on my taint.” Now that sounds like a title of a horror movie.
I once went to dinner with a guy who asked to eat my ass. I said sure, i knew I was good down there. So I’m walking him to his car after and I felt a pinching on my taint. Apparently the dude had been chewing gum and it got stuck in my taint/ball/leg hair. 🤗— Zac (@Zac_Coffey1) January 29, 2020
6- Are you in danger, sir?
At an upscale restaurant he pulled up a pic of antiqued parchment paper on his phone and scream-read his excommunication letter from the Mennonite church that was written by his church leader…his father. Management came over and asked if I felt I was danger.— out of context wes (@wrd14) January 29, 2020
7- From heaven to hell real quick.
In my early 20s met a cute guy at a bar, went back to his trailer (I know), had amazing sex, cuddled after then he told me he was the son of God and needed to kill us both to get us into heaven. I said ‘ok I just need my sweater from my car first’ and I got the fuck out so fast.— Erik Anderson (@awards_watch) January 30, 2020
If there’s anything that these experiences are telling us, it’s that not every encounter is friendly and safe. And so, let’s always keep in mind these dating safety tips to ensure we stay safe when meeting anyone in person and when connecting online:
- meet them in public
- stay sober
- don’t feel obligated to do something you don’t want to do whether sexual in nature or otherwise,
- DON’T provide any private information such as your credit card and bank details; your home address and personal data; and online username and passwords to your bank accounts.

Anyway, what about you, guys? What’s your dating horror story? As for mine, one of my dates was a no-show and while I was upset at the time about that, I didn’t let it dissuade me from going to another date and another and another. Remember that the path to love is long and winding and we have to kiss a lot of frogs first before we’ll be able to find the one meant for us, yes?
