We asked our fans to share with us some of their most embarrassing dating stories on our Facebook page. I don’t know whether or not to laugh or cry at some of these embarrassing yet humorous dating stories. As always, if you have any stories that you would like to share with us, leave a comment below and we’ll add to a future post we do.
The Nose Stud
A friend of mine went on a double blind date with a buddy. When he picked his date up he noticed a little stud in her right nostril. He didn’t want to make a big deal about it or come across as judgmental so shortly after getting into the car he said “that’s a pretty cool stud you have there.”
Turns out it wasn’t a stud but a mole that she was very self-conscious about. “To this day, I swear it looked like it was a shiny, semi-precious stone” he said.
Took my date out to Betos. As we were leaving I had to go to the bathroom and she waited for me in the car. The problem was that I had major issues in the bathroom and without going into too much detail, I was in there for 25 minutes. When I finally came out, she had fallen asleep in the car.
My date (now my husband) and I stayed a bit too late and were locked on top of the Oakland temple. He says we were “sealed” in that temple twice.
Just Helping My Date
I was on a date with a girl and we went bowling. While we were there, I saw a piece of hair on her cheek and I just went to remove it. The only problem was that the piece of hair was attached to her face and when I pulled on it she screamed “Ouch!” Yeah, that wasn’t awkward or anything.
I was with my girlfriend at Disneyland over New Years. I had never kissed a girl before and I was planning on kissing her for a “New Years Kiss”. We were at the castle and all of a sudden the countdown began. I wasn’t ready for it and started to hyperventilate because I was so nervous. I thought to myself that I don’t want to be hyperventilating for my first kiss so I decided that I wasn’t going to kiss her. Well when the countdown finished, everyone around us started to give their significant other a kiss.
I just stood there looking at the castle and noticed in the corner of my eye that she was on the verge of crying. I thought “I don’t want her to cry” so I quickly decided to give her a kiss. Problem was that it was very “quick” in the sense that I swung my head around and literally smashed her nose. Her nose started bleeding and well…it just lead to an awkward night all around.
In the Buff
When my husband and I were first dating I drove over to his house so I could take him out for once. His dad answered the door. In a bath towel.
I was with my boyfriend and we went to the BYU Creamery to get some ice cream. We started to play games afterwards and him and his friends started to swing me. It was fun but then quickly I told them to stop because my stomach started not to feel so good. They just kept swinging and I ended up throwing up all over him.
Lord of the Rings
Not really an awkward dating story but a realization of why I probably wasn’t getting too many dates online. A friend pointed out to me that I had 32 LOTR and 7 Pokemon references on my profile on LDS Singles. Now I only have 6 LOTR references. 🙂
We were on a group date and my date brought the game “Catch Phrase”. The problem was that we were going to a nice restaurant for dinner. It was super awkward because he just wanted to play Catch Phrase over and over throughout the entire meal. The other couple on our date was super annoyed and so was I.
My Life Is Over
Went on a date with a guy and as he was backing out of his driveway he ran over his bike. As he came out to see what he had ran over he started screaming and crying. He just sat there for about 20 minutes sobbing that he had ran over his bike while I just stood awkwardly over him trying to kind of comfort him. Yeah, there wasn’t a second date after that.

On one of my first dates, my date and I, along with other couples went paintballing, and it was fun, until my date was accidentally shot in the neck, later on that night at the school dance, the bruise looked like a hickey and we were the topic of much controversy…we never went out again.
My date and I went on a photo scavenger hunt. One picture required us to be inside a hotel room. The hotel we went to was having a convention going on. Specifically a “Steers and Queers” gay rodeo convention. My date wanted to “look around” a little and stumbled on their drag queen beauty contest. He got pictures with the winners, and got his butt grabbed during it.
There was not a second date. Ever.
One time on a date I went hiking, and of course while hiking I was drinking lots and lots of fluids (you can see where this is going). While driving myself and my boyfriend back I realized I really needed to go to the bathroom. It was at that stage were you could still hold it in, but time was my enemy, especially since I had another 15 minutes to drive. When we finally got to Ephraim, I asked if we could stop by our friends house so I could use his bathroom. By that point, I had to go so bad that when we made it to our friend’s apartment, I just crashed into his home without even waiting for him to open the door and invite us in. Our friend’s bathroom was set up really weird; it had stalls, like a public restroom. So the few precious milliseconds I had before my bladder was going to explode, I spent them on closing the bathroom door and then trying to close one of the stall doors (so dumb). I finally got the stall door closed when my internal valve released, so I ripped off my pants and slammed myself on the toilet. I thought I had made it, but on closer inspection, I realized I hit my underwear pretty good. No problem, I thought. I’ll just ditch my undies like I did at Disneyland (sigh, I have too many pee stories). When I took off my underwear though, I saw that it went through to my pants as well. I felt like there was no way I was going to get away with this even though the damage was small (I was afraid I’d smell the rest of the date, and who wants to wear pee pee pants??), so I confessed to my boyfriend once we left the apartment. He was very much the gentleman and let me take care of my business without making fun of me (too badly). A day later, I snuck back into our friend’s apartment to throw out the trash where I left my underwear. I still feel pretty bad about doing that, I hope his bathroom didn’t stink.
When I was 16, I went on a (Second) date with a young man (Pre-mission, currently serving…) and I had liked him at one point but that crush only lasted about 2/3 Months. Anyway, he and a couple in his ward decided to take us fishing one summer evening… We went out on the boat, but on the way back the winds picked up and it took us almost about hour to get back to shore. There was an unexpected buoy in front of us. The brother driving us, turned the boat, and it ended up soaking my date and I… My date screamed at the top of his lungs like a 6 year old girl the entire time. I just sat there and tried not to laugh and make the best of it being soaked to the bone with my teeth chattering because of the cold wind. (And getting home and hour later than expected …1AM)
(The awkward part of the date was that he was beyond too sweet. He gave me a yellow rose at the beginning of the date because they left my bouquet of 12 yellow-red rimmed roses at their house… I felt So bad!)
I was asked out on a date the summer before my freshman year in college by a guy who worked for the moving company that had happened to move my family’s belongings. As we stood in the driveway amid cardboard boxes, Mover Man told me he didn’t believe I was as old as I said I was, and acted quite mature and sophisticated, mingled with arrogance and condescension, but he was pretty cute so I said yes to the date. We went to out for Italian food in SLC and as he stared at me from across the table, he leaned forward and asked, totally straight-faced and serious, “What do you find sexy about my face?” After nearly choking on spaghetti, I replied dead-pan, “Uh, your nostril hairs.” As if that hadn’t thrown him a bit, after dinner he tried to be all romantic as we sat on the lawn of the Capitol Building, gazing out at the city lights and getting eaten by swarms of mosquitoes. Not my favorite date ever. But his was definitely my favorite “come-on” line for pure cheesiness.
