Valentine’s Day is either the world’s most romantic holiday or straight-up garbage, depending on your opinion. But is it actually a good day to find ~love~? These brave souls decided to go on first dates on V-Day and the outcomes range from sweet and swoon-worthy to “WTF just happened?!” Read on for nine crazy first date stories from Feb. 14.
1 I went on a Valentine’s first date with this guy who I met through work. He was super cute, super funny, and we got along so well. We went out to dinner and a movie, and went out for drinks afterward. We were having such a good time, and I was just thinking about how lucky I was to have found him! Anyway, while we’re at drinks, he starts getting kind of weird. He starts shifting in his seat and avoiding eye contact, really nervous. I thought he was just going to ask me to head back to his place, but then he got on one knee. He asked me to marry him! I instantly froze and then excused myself to use the restroom. I called a cab, and left right then and there. Worst date ever.” —Sarah, 23
2. “I went on a blind date with a guy a friend had set me up with. We met at Starbucks, and after a few hours he told me he bought me a gift. He went to his car and brought out a balloon that said, ‘It’s a boy!’ The Starbucks baristas began to immediately congratulate me. I was a bit confused but also thought it was hysterical! He explained that was the only balloon he could find, as all of the heart balloons had already been taken. The relationship didn’t work out, but I still have the balloon!” —Kiyana, 25
