There are certain things that you should just never say on a first date – but some people just can’t resist.
When you’ve only just met someone, it’s always tricky knowing exactly how much to divulge about oneself early on.
There are though, some special souls who simply have no filter and are totally happy to overshare, like the person who told her presumably wide-eyed date that she used to have sex with her brother and ‘was still in love with him’.
One Reddit user recalled having to listen to the incestuous tale before understandably making a quick getaway.
First date horror stories are common when you’re looking for love, but sometime people can overshare
Reddit users revealed the experiences they’ve had when meeting people for the first time on a date, including an incestuous relationship and that they were in the Mafia
Some may not think it wise to reveal plans to get married and have children on a first date, but one person revealed his brother’s first date experience with his now wife in which both admitted they had a desire to have six kids.
‘They have been married for 17 years now and have five kids, so I guess it worked out for them, but it is not a tactic I would recommend.’
And a cat lover made a macabre admission that her love of felines had seen her place a pet moggy in the freezer.
Other users revealed some terrifying stories they’ve heard on a first date, including one man who claimed to be in the Mafia and had ‘spent two years drug trafficking’.
Then there’s the woman who knew her date was convicted for stealing a car, but surprisingly confessed: ‘Jokes on me, I married that a******. I had issues back then.’
Another person shared: ‘She was a former meth addict. Like, good on you and all for kicking it, and I guess thanks for letting me know. But it was like ten minutes into our lunch date.’
Others shared the tales they’d had to listen to, with one person revealing her date had confessed his dead cat was still in his freezer
Elsewhere, another user’s date went well but he was shocked to learn that his date was extremely close to her grandparents.
‘She let me know she was raised by her grandparents, and that she tells them everything,’ he recalled.
‘That night I end up getting lucky and she’s grinning ear to ear. I ask her why she’s so happy? Her response? “I get to tell my grandma I got laid”.’
One woman mistook her date for a therapy session and shared horrific details of how she had been domestically abused by a former partner.
The anonymous man went on a second date with her and said it was equally morbid and decided to end their budding romance, but still went on to phone him 37 times.
