There is no doubt that online dating is the new trend because it connects millions of people to each other with ease. Yes, using a dating app and flirting is easy now, but we can not really say these things about going on a date with someone you met online especially for the first time. Meeting someone without knowing anything except for his/her name and age, if it is true of course, is one of the hardest things you can ever do. No matter how much you like her/him in the photos, it will be awkward to go on a date with someone that you do not know at all. Accordingly, almost everyone has a funny, odd or awkward first date story that we can relate easily. So what we have here are awkward first date stories coming directly from the Waplog users. Every story here is real and mostly funny rather than awkward for me, but you should read and decide yourself.
Waplog User 1: I got a match on Waplog while swiping. We started talking right away. After he asked me how I was doing, he wanted me to come down. I thought he sent the message to the wrong person, but it turned out that the message was for me. It crept me out like how could he know where I live. Then, he said he just wanted to smoke a cigarette with me in front of my apartment. It seemed like a bad idea for me because it was late and I looked terrible wearing pajamas with no makeup, at all. Later, I thought it was even a good idea to meet him because it was going to be a 3 minutes-date. Even if he was boring as hell, I could get rid of him in 3 minutes. Anyway, we met in front of my apartment, and I had to persuade him to get out of his car because he was just too scared to feel cold. While we smoking, I tried to get to know him, but it did not help our awkward date, either. He was not answering any of my questions or answering them only with yes or no even if they were not yes/no questions. When I finally said goodbye to him, he was shocked and asked if it was all but this time I did not answer his question and went back upstairs. The whole date was so awkward even if it was a short one. The nightmare was not over, though. I accidentally called him and had to block him after seeing his message ''yes'' with a question mark this time. So, it turned out this date was not a good idea, not even close.
You should try to know your match before going on a date, or else, it can be a real disaster for both of you. You should also be patient and not rush things up because you will not be able to control things that way. What we read here is a big lesson for all of us to at least have a little chat with our dates and make sure if he/she is even able to speak or not. We are waiting for more stories from you. Do not forget to read our blog weekly to know more about online dating. Have a nice weekend.
