First dates: gotta love ’em. Unless they’re terrible. But in that case, at least we can take comfort in the fact that we won’t have to deal with a second one.

It’s a nerve-wracking experience. You try to get yourself looking good, choose something fun to do, use what you know about the person so far to cater to their interests, etc etc etc. Externally you’re all smiles and giggles and inside you’re sweating profusely hoping things work out well.  And the end results? Well, they can be all over the place.

To illustrate that point look no further than these 15 true stories about wild first date experiences. Some of them are almost too bizarre to be believed.
