Dating isn’t always easy – in fact, it can be quite the complicated endeavor. With so many apps and websites flooding our digital dating sphere, the world of courting can be a tad overwhelming; not to mention mysterious. Are they really a successful lawyer? Do they love animals as much as they say they do? Do they actually look like the person in their profile picture? With so many questions and doubts, sometimes it’s easier to go to your friends and loved ones for help.
Enter, the blind date. A good friend of your best friend – why not? Your cousin’s hot friend from work – might as well! In some cases blind dates work out flawlessly. And why shouldn’t they? You’d think since your friends and family know you better than anyone, they wouldn’t set you up with someone you didn’t jive with. But in tons of cases, blind dates turn out to be utter disasters.
One woman sat through an entire date where the guy couldn’t stop talking about his traumatic family life; another hiked a mountain with a guy who was high on magic mushrooms; and an unlucky man wasn’t able to eat his meal because his date was doing something so horribly disgusting. But, no matter how awful it seems at the time, at least blind-dates-gone-wrong leave people with funny stories to talk about for the rest of their lives.
