Real Life Awkward Dating Stories – #DontBeMine

What Does It Take To Make a Bad Date Bad? I Mean REALLY Bad?

One of my favorite things about our show #DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment is how interactive it is.

  • We interview audience volunteers and see what would happen if they dated in real life.
  • We talk with people after the show and find out their dating stories.
  • AND we try to connect online and really commiserate in this crazy world of dating.

Last year we started asking audience members to…

Tweet Us Your Awkward Dating Stories using #DontBeMine.

And we’ve gotten tons of hilarious (and sad…and scary) responses. From time to time we take to social media and bring those stories to life.

Here’s a Story From a Real life Person…

And Here’s Our Interpretation of How It Went Down

I hope we honored Carpe’s experience here. We’ve all gone through terrible dating situations and the least we can do is laugh at them.

Shout out to Kyle McGrath who plays my date in the video. And, yes, that’s me playing the lying, cheating object of his Non-desire.

In the Next Few Months We’ll Post More Videos. One Of Them Could Be Yours. So please…

Tweet Us Your Awkward Dating Stories…

I look forward to acting them out. And in the meantime…

Here are some of my favorite Tweets:

I mean, that’s a little Cray. But, Brady, I’m kinda dying to know what their names were.

To the Truly Insane…

Logically, I just want to know what was happening. Was she pulling off the clothes she was wearing one by one? Did she bring a suitcase? WTF?

To the Sucks To Be You…

But, Steve, be real. You kinda deserved this. Stop double booking dates!

To the Too Crazy to be True…

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 8.54.35 AM

If this is real, this guy kinda RULES. That’s a lot of douchebaggery to pull off at once.
