We've all had a disastrous first date. You're nervous, things go wrong, and everything gets super awkward. Jimmy Fallon decided to ask his viewers from the stories behind their awkward moments on Twitter using the hashtag #WorstFirstDate, and there are some real doozies out there.
Fallon started by sharing his own embarrassing moment. (And it turns out that he didn't even bother mentioning the time he went out with Nicole Kidman and didn't even realize they were on what she considered a date... Yikes). Instead he wrote, "I once tried to surprise my date by not telling her what restaurant we were going to. I accidentally picked the one she worked at."
That's a bad first date indeed. And from there, it got worse. Almost immediately, the flood gates had opened with horrible dates and dates that had gone terribly wrong.
There was nothing decent on television... "As we were saying goodby, she thanked me for taking her to the movies and I said something like, 'Yeah, I didn't have anything else to do.'" At least this story had a happy ending, as he concluded his tweet, "Next month will be our third wedding anniversary."
Another first date that ended with marriage: "On my first date with my now-wife, she walked into the restaurant and proceeded to walk around the whole place because she had forgotten what I looked like. I eventually waved her down after letting her walk and look around for five minutes." Five minutes!!!
#WorstFirstDate this guy spent the whole time talking about his bunny and how he believes in “bunnies before hunnies”. After the date, he told me he had his bunny in his car for me to see. Sure enough, there’s a goddamn bunny in his car with a yamaka on.— Kayla McCaffrey (@Kayla_McCaffrey) January 10, 2018
These are gold.
When my date brought me home, he walked me in. My dad heard us come in, and got up half asleep, locked eyes with my date, and farted for a minute straight. He never broke eye contact the entire time, and then went back to bed without a word. #WorstFirstDate— Maddie Allen (@_MadelineElyse_) January 10, 2018
#WorstFirstDate My first date, and my first time at a sushi place, I decided to order thirteen rolls...I thought rolls meant individual pieces of sushi. Let’s just say I was embarrassed when we had to have two tables pushed together just to hold them all.— 50 Spense (@foreversmiling2) January 10, 2018
Me and my date were at the movie theatre, and popcorn kept flying out of nowhere and hitting my date on the back of her head. Turns out my younger sister had bought a ticket to the same movie and sat behind us just to throw popcorn at my date. #WorstFirstDate— Justin Blankenship (@Padfoot93) January 10, 2018
My #WorstFirstDate was to Dick's Last Resort (the place servers act rude). The server brought us a whole lemon on a knife. My date went to take it off & he cut his finger-the nerve, tendon, & artery-we spent the next 3 hours in the ER. He had surgery & wore a cast for 3 months pic.twitter.com/qE6qh9zm0L— Mackenzie Lawrence (@macknzmarie) January 10, 2018
I met a girl for a blind date once. She didn’t say a single word throughout dinner, finished her meal and walked out. I then checked my phone and there was a msg from the girl saying she couldn’t make it tonight... Who the hell did I eat with!? #WorstFirstDate @jimmyfallon— Scott Sedore (@sedore93) January 10, 2018
I went on this date with a guy to the movies. He went to the bathroom then came back and made an attempt to kiss me. Later I found out he was so nervous that he threw up in his mouth and that’s why he went to the bathroom. To clean his mouth before he kissed me. #WorstFirstDate— Jensyn (@JensynAchtemeie) January 10, 2018
Must have been a Tinder date.
Never meet the family on the first date.
Enjoying your meal?
And on last night's episode of The Tonight Show, Fallon decided to highlight some of his favorite entries from the hashtag.
