Going out on a first date is never easy. While hoping for a romantic night out, meeting up with a stranger…, things can go wrong in so many ways. None of the following romantics ever imagined it would end in the ER.
Here we are, getting all ready to go out on our first date. It might not be the very first date of our lives. Maybe it’s a blind date, or maybe you’ve been out of the dating game for a while. There are plenty of reasons one could get nervous about. Plenty of things that are on your mind of all the things you expect that might happen. But one thing nobody ever worries about that your first date could go so terribly wrong that one of you would need an emergency trip to the ER.
Here are some romantics who had to live just through that scenario. Luckily for them it all ended well. Some even found a deeper bond through that incident. And maybe some of their unfortunate experiences can teach us how to do things different on our first date. Just to make sure ours doesn’t end in the ER. Let’s have a look.
The big dive to the ER
“On my first date I broke my arm diving for a chicken nugget that my date dropped. I was trying to impress her. Instead, she had to take me to the ER.”
A little advice here. Don’t try to impress her by showing off your lack of diving skills. Save your heroism for something other than —- a chicken nugget.
I don’t date cats ever
“My worst first date ever… he had to take me to the ER, because I went to his apartment not knowing he had cats. I’m deathly allergic.”
Yeah, you might want to disclose that little life threatening detail next time before hand. Off to the next one, because cat lovers are obviously not an ideal match here.
Fainting without a cushion
“On the first date the guy fainted. I had to drive him to the hospital to get stitches. Then we had our first kiss on the hospital bed.”
No time to pick out a save landing spot when you’re fainting. I’m sure that first kiss took some of the pain away, and the scars can be worn with pride.
He blew it from the start
“This guy showed up drunk on our first date. Barfed and had to be taken to the hospital for alcohol poisoning. I sat in the front seat of the ambulance. NO SECOND DATE!”
He certainly blew it. A little advice: Drowning oneself in alcohol certainly won’t win over hearts. On the bright side, she got to ride in the front of the ambulance and didn’t have to smell his stench. No happy ending here.
No stones left unturned… or removed
“I brought a guy home after a great date. Woke up at 4 AM with crippling back pain. He took me to the ER. Turns out I was passing a kidney stone. Crazy date! We’re still together.”
Wild first dates can help pass kidney stones. Just kidding!
Dates and heels can spell disaster
“I wore heels on our first date and my heel got stuck in the cracks of the sidewalk. Long story short, we spent the rest of the night in the hospital…”
Dress up, look pretty, and gotta wear those heels… It’s hard to watch for cracks in the ground when your focus is on his eyes. One just has to look at the pictures of celebrities with fashionable women’s footwear to see they create all sorts of problems. Even if you are used to wearing them. So, my advice: Don’t dress uncomfortable just to impress someone. It’s safer that way.
“My first date with my bf of 4 years ended with us in the ER, because he was allergic to my lip stain. Learned to stick with lip gloss after that.”
After surviving her killer kiss they have a happy ending with an awesome story to tell for years to come.
What we have learned so far is to disclose your allergies and don’t dress to die for. What else? Oh, yes. Don’t play the hero to save food on the ground and never, ever date an alcoholic.
