Been There, Done That
“Just received a suggestion that was not their fault, they couldn’t have known, but unpleasant regardless. Suggestion to a man I had already casually dated in the past. Too bad you cant “X” people on this thing. Would save a lot of time and energy on their part and emotions on mine. “

Rule: Don't Assume
The date started out good—he was cuter in person than in his pictures, we were laughing and talking about our interests, and then the conversation took a turn for the worst. All of the sudden out of nowhere, he started asking me about my past relationships, and he mapped out, in detail, his past 3 relationships and why they didn’t work out. (Keep in mind he is a tad older and never failed to...
THIS WAS MY VERY FIRST EMAIL ON THE DAY I SIGNED UP. NOT EXACTLY ENCOURAGING. RE: Hey I’m actually still not comfortable talking to my fellow human beings about ‘The Ice Cream Incident’. I mainly discuss my deepest secrets with small animals. Over the years I have developed a rapport with squirrels, possums, and pigeons. In many of their communities these gentle creatures...

This guy messaged me on jdate, eager to start a conversation. He worked in the city where I live, but lived a distance away. For our date, he told me he would borrow his mom’s car to drive to the city and pay to park in garage, just for me! We had scheduled to meet around 7:15. I got a text message from him at 6:00, saying he was done with his workday, and I wanted to be meet earlier...

I also lead one of Bostons Biggest volunteer organizations with 18 assistants and 779 members. . I have a great job and work assiduously. I had a girlfriend very recently and she thought I had a great body (so did she). I like to cook (but am pretty bad at it), and love doing pretty...
This Isn't For Me
When he first suggested going to check out some furniture during the day on Saturday, because he just moved into his new studio, I thought that would be nice and different. But I was wrong. NEVER consider doing this if the only thing you plan on talking about is money. Wheather its you showing off or being cheap, its a turn off either way. My case happened to be the latter. All he cared about...
This wasn’t actually my date but I was out with my husband and the tables in the restaurant were very close. If you wanted to spy, you could, so we did because there was a very uncomfortable situation going on next to us. This couple was clearly on their first date and it was not going well. The girl looked so concerned and the guy was just out of it. He kept checking his phone, sniffing...
Not Just JDate
NYC Aint So Big
When I first moved to New York I thought I would give JDate a try. I didn’t really know what I was doing and I hadn’t quite learned how it worked yet. I went on a few dates pretty quickly. First one good went OK and we are still friends today. The second one was creepy, the third was OK and the fourth one will go down as the worst date in history. So #4 asks me out right after work one...
Awkward Doesn't Describe
My friend told me this one. A boy, who is a friend, who actually ended up coming out recently, was telling me about when he used to date girls from JDate. This was his favorite/least favorite story. He picked a girl up, and they went on their date. Dinner was fine. She seemed normal. No spark but it wasn’t a bad date. He drove her home and he thought the house seemed pretty nice for...
We dated for a few months and the feelings were very mutual, so I thought. However, he did a few things that were pretty shady. He never introduced me to people, after a few months we never went on dates. Our relationship basically existed within the 4 walls of our apartments. The relationship didn’t work out. While I had very strong feelings for him, his feelings seemed to change. He still...
Straight From A Profile
About Me: “I don’t even know why I am on this thing. Everyone is always crazy.”
Mr. Perfect Not
I usually don’t have the instant “spark” with a guy from jdate. It’s hard to find your exact counterpart on a website. Especially when most of the guys are just looking for a fling. I considered myself lucky when I found this one. Older (30 to be exact), also from a big ten school, smart, funny (just as sarcastic as I am and can dish it just as well as he can take it). We hadn’t even...
I had been talking to this girl for a couple days and we finally decided to go out. She seemed a little crazy/hyper but I thought it would be really fun. She was way hotter then any other girl I had met on the site too. We met at Dave and Busters for some good old fashioned fun. That wasnt crazy enough for her so after that, she still wanted to party and suggested we go to a strip club. I...
First 5 minutes of a convo. JDaters are pretty horny but seriously, sometimes they can really cross the line. Why are some of these people so sick?! This is NOT KOSHER. He Said: i disagree. i think it’s a great way to start off getting to know each other He Said: how often you do it He Said: when you do it He Said: etc She Said: ok well, im not looking for a manic masturbater, so good...
You look familiar...
I went on a date. Nothing bad, nothing good. We didn’t go out again. I went on another date with someone else. Turned out to be date #1’s friend. It didn’t work out. But if it did, that would have been awkward!
What’s up with the people who make plans and constantly bail? It’s happened so many times! It is so rude.
Went to a party with a dude but I don’t drink. He assumed that meant I could drive him home and got piss drunk. Really angry about the situation but the bigger problem was that we were in his car. I decided I would just drive him and let him crash at my house. It took me 30 minutes to get him out of his car. I don’t know how I got him upstairs. He took a couple swings at me in...
No No No
Some people just don’t understand the concept of the other person saying no. I went on my first date with this boy and we decided we would go to the movies. When I got there, he had already bought the tickets to the movies. Normally a cute gesture, except he never asked me my opinion which also wouldn’t bother me except he just went ahead and got the one scary movie that was playing...
Rationalizing The Past
“Somewhere right now a guy is on a JDate with Monica Lewinsky. Nobody’s perfect.” - Jack on 30 Rock
My date never even began. We had met a year ago, no big deal, but then we stumbled upon each other on the site as well. He was also a friend of a friend so I knew it wasn’t going to be sketchy. Well, I was wrong. On the night of our dinner date he calls to tell me he was on his way and wanted to check his directions. He even called to tell me he was halfway there. I was excited and...
Overstaying His Welcome
I had been talking to this guy for a couple of days. I was comfortable enough meeting him by a bar a couple of blocks from my house and we decided on the following Saturday night. The day of the date, I wasn’t feeling too great but I was really anxious to meet the guy so I decided to go through with it. We met and things were not ok. He was way more obnoxious then I thought he would be. ...
MishMosh of Dates
Does a guy hitting his head against the wall anytime I said something funny count? Or one that couldnt chew his steak and kept going to the bathroom to spit it out until I traded w my salmon? Or the guy who cleaned up the table by flinging shrimp tails at me? There was also a guy who remembered me from college but didnt tell me, and then wrote me 4 hate emails when I told him I couldnt see him...
No Manners, Shellfish or Chicken
My friend decided to take her chances with a guy she was talking to on JDate for a while. She didn’t want to go alone so she invited me and told the guy to bring a friend. I was kind of excited because I never did anything like this before. When we got to the restaurant, the guy my friend was supposed to meet was probably 60 pounds more then his photos. “Fit” =...
I automatically get signed into it on my computer and when I went to check it the other day, I was signed off. Thinking something was a little strange but putting what I thought was my password only to find it did not work. Perhaps I put in the wrong password, as I generally have 2 go to passwords I use on everything. I tried and tried and finally it was reported to customer service, or whatever....
Not So Smooth Moves
After breaking up with my boyfriend of almost 2 years, I decided it was time for me to get out there and meet new men. Since i was living in a city where I knew very few people, I reluctantly turned to JDate. I started talking to this guy in law school about 3 hours away from me, but he was coming home for the summer and home was about 20 minutes from where I lived. We talked for a good 3 weeks...
