A blind date might be surprisingly good, especially if you've been set up by people who know you well. Or it can be a nightmare. Check out a bunch of reader-submitted stories about blind dates gone horribly wrong. The "happy ending" is when you never have to see that person again.
3. The date with a KISS-enthusiast:
"I was set up by a friend with a guy who seemed really nice at first. I soon realized that he was absolutely obsessed with the band KISS. He spoke at length about wanting to be buried in a KISS coffin. I was thrilled when the date was over, right up until the moment he asked if I wanted to go back to his place and test out his KISS condoms. No. No. No. I still shudder every time I hear a KISS song."
4. The date with a drug-dealing hustler:
"I was out to dinner with this guy when he suddenly went outside for a smoke break. Whatever, do you — but I looked out the window to see him talking to someone else. It looked a bit odd and ~sketchy~, so when he came back in I asked him who that was. He told me he sells meth as a side job. "
5. The date with a big spender:
"I was set up on a blind date and told to dress nice for dinner. We ended up at Famous Dave’s. He told me I had to choose between the kids menu chicken tenders or the half-rack of ribs because he had a coupon. "
