Navigating the dating world these days can be a lot of work…and a lot of times that work doesn’t pay off in any way, shape, or form.
You spend time swiping left and right on dating apps and then you realize that you’re now on a date with someone who might’ve escaped from a mental hospital.
Somebody on Twitter asked this question…
what’s the weirdest date you’ve been on??? I’ll go first
we were going to see a movie and didn’t buy tickets in advance and couldn’t get two tickets next to each other so we ended up sitting on opposite sides of the theater and then the movie ended and we were like cool ok bye

Here are some humorous tweets from people who went out on some really, really weird dates.
1. Kind of killed the mood.
We went back to his room and I thought we were gonna hook up but he started showing me videos of Mongolian throat singing

2. Now that is classy!
Sat in a fancy restaurant and he hands me a condom WITH HIS FACE ON IT

3. Can’t believe you didn’t go for it.
The last time I talked to a guy before I officially came out as a lesbian, I went over to his house for the first time and he turned on his speakers and cried to “every rose has a thorn” and then “eye of the tiger” followed by “thriller”

4. A for effort.
She showed up to a bar in full 1950s costume and makeup and said she saw on my profile that I liked the show Mad Men so she dressed like that???

5. That is very bizarre.
It was the dead of winter and his roommate was studying so we went to a library and printed out pictures of Danny DeVito for multiple hours. He also had packed a water bottle of milk & loose baggie of oreos. It was a stunning tinder date and we r still pals

6. Worked out in the end.
I met this guys entire family (aunts, uncles, cousins, mom, dad and sister) on the first date at his grandpa’s house…who had just passed away. He says it wasn’t planned but almost 3 years later it’s my favorite story to tell pic.twitter.com/RhH6cQ8HNE

7. A lot to digest here.
On a blind date, the girl orders Caesar salad and eats it with her hands! Tells me she’s “not big into utensils”. After eating she asks me if I’ve accepted Jesus Christ as my lord and savior and invites me to confession.

8. Doh! Nice try, though.
When I was a wee emo this guy asked me out – I didn’t hear from him on the day till he texted me saying sorry & that his bat had died? so I got him a condolence card & a present and took it to the date like I’m so sorry about ur pet bat & he was like no I meant my phone battery https://t.co/pur9ENV6SE

9. That’s a hot date.
guy brought me to his therapist (I thought we were gonna do errands). When his therapist greeted us in the waiting room, she looked frustrated and told him she “was not going to do this with him again”.
I never got any more answers on any part of that. https://t.co/eq6lCqwprT

10. I’ll be leaving now.
Met a guy from OKC at his fancy apartment complex. Agreed to come up for a drink. Apt had a stunning view, a lamp & a blow up couch and nothing else (he was 32). He snuck into his room, emerged in full Indy Jones cosplay, including functioning whip. To this day I don’t know why. https://t.co/h0UuTQfiNN

11. Meet the family.
I once agreed to meet a lady in a pub for a date – I arrived and she was sat with her 6 kids. I bought them all a drink and politely left shortly after ??

Some of these made me nervous just reading them!
Do you have any totally odd dating stories from your past? Or maybe from your present?
Tell us about it in the comments! It’s time to get weird!
