One man freaked out when his date kept mentioning her brother. It started innocently enough, as she simply said they’d get along, but as the night progressed, she made weirder and weirder comments about how he reminded her of her brother. He had enough when she whispered it, just as they were getting intimate.
Addicts will say anything to explain their addiction away. One man decided against a second meetup when his date casually told him she used hard, illicit substances, but it was okay because she was a “responsible user.”

I Make Poor Financial Decisions
Some folks should wear a t-shirt warning people they’re bad with money. Others don’t have to because they’ll tell anyone who will listen how great crypto is and that even though they lost all their money, you should invest because it’s sure to go back up.
What a Creep
Women who want to enjoy a casual date often get blindsided by disgusting comments and actions. One woman shared that her date casually said she’d look great wearing his collar, while another said her date stripped and demanded intimacy after she agreed to come to his place.
