The Most Embarrassing Things That Can Happen On A Date

Dating certainly isn’t easy and no matter how much you try and make a good impression, mistakes and blunders happen and some are certainly more embarrassing than others.

A new British survey, which could easily translate here, finds:

  • Close to half of people say they’ve been left embarrassed on a date.
  • 42% say those disasters have haunted them throughout their lives.
  • Some of the biggest dating nightmares include:
    • Awkward silences
    • Forgetting their name
    • Mistiming a hug or kiss
    • Falling over
    • Spilling drink on your clothes
    • Spilling food down your front
    • Bumping into an ex
    • Calling them the wrong name
    • Telling a joke but it not landing
    • Farting
  • There’s no doubt dating can be awkward, and some of the most common reasons for this include nervousness (32%), lack of confidence (20%) and drinking too much (17%).
  • Of course how you handle those blunders can go a long way towards whether you get over it or not.
  • 44% of people say they tend to laugh off such embarrassing moments.
  • 75% say that while they couldn’t laugh about it at the time, they now find it funny.
  • But not everyone can get past it, with a fifth of adults saying they were so mortified they left the date early.
  • Another 13% went on to cancel their next date.
