NYC's 8 Worst Dating Nightmares (Yes, They're True!)
When it comes to horrible dates, we've all been there, done that...maybe even done it again. And everyone knows the real freaks congregate in NYC, meaning terrible one-on-ones are amplified in the most gruesome way, and often broadcasted across Facebook for all the world to recount. But because we love sharing our deepest innermost feelings and desires with YOU, we've asked you, our Big Apple readers, to submit your worst (albeit best!) dating nightmare stories. As we expected, you far exceeded our expectations. You had us laughing, crying, laughing again, and then almost vomiting. To make sure you're not sweating the prospect of being single forever, we've narrowed down our favorites (or least favorites, depending on how you look at it) to eight tales so truly horrific, you'll be ready to swear off men forever (plus accompanying artwork from The Blake Wright). Okay, that's a lie, but click through to read first-person tales*—from a literal blind date to a Civil War fanatic—that you'll be sharing again and again. Don't blame us if you can't sleep tonight. Or do.
