'They stop at her house, I guess because she had to pee.
She comes back from the potty and he's buck naked on the couch.
Awkward.'And while some of these stories are uniquely awkward in their own right, other people noted common mistakes such as bashing your ex, talking too much, or sticking your date with the bill can be your downfall.
Whether the person is someone you know or a complete stranger, first dates are never easy.
And now a group of people have revealed just how awful they can be by sharing tales about their potential partners who turned out to be nightmares.
A Reddit thread asking users what the worst thing a person could do on a first date turned into an outlet for people to confess their own horror stories - while warning others to avoid these mistakes if they want to score a second meeting.
'In the middle of the night, I farted so loud I woke up him, myself, and his dad,' the Reddit user explained.
'Because you can't be blamed for anything you do whilst sleeping, I just stayed as still as possible.
'When we emerged from the bedroom in the morning, running into his dad, he said, "Son, you woke me up with that one last night! "Yeah sorry, dad, must have been all the beer," replied my date, winking at me.'Man oh man have I seen some awkward f***ing first dates on Valentine's Day,' he wrote.'I'll never forget my first Valentine's Day with my girlfriend, now wife.We went to this nice Italian restaurant we both liked in Manhattan that we didn't go to that often since it's kind of pricey, but we figured, screw it, let's splurge a little and have a nice dinner.'Well, we get there and all reservations for the night were couples only and the place is all decked out with roses and sh** and it was really romantic looking.We sit down and we were both really young at the time (I was 18, she was 20) and as a result people kept acting all weird around us since we were young. B****face Mc Gee just starts f***ing going off on the waitress that they messed up her overly complex order and says it's OK because she used to be a waitress herself.'The Reddit user noted that the man was a 'nervous wreck' and hardly said anything, and what was even worse was the fact that they both saw their relationships at different levels.Nah, it was the couple to the left of us that they should've worried about.'He went on to explain that a couple were in their late 20s and very obviously on their first date together. While she acted like they were 'an old married couple', he was 'just clearly still feeling out the waters - on Valentine's day'.
