Worst Date Stories


Ella MacGregor, Senior Writer

Hey, Northwest! Myself and the rest of the newspaper staff have had a blast reading all the hilarious (and mostly unfortunate) worst date stories. Those are some of the worst I’ve heard. After much deliberation, we came up with our winners: 


1st– Scarlett Clearman (10th)

2nd– Charlotte Germany (12th)

3rd– Kandace Harlan (12th)


Here’s what they submitted! Enjoy lol.


Scarlett Clearman: So this guy picks me up for our first date right, my cousin decides to tell him what time I need to be home and all that fun stuff, the FIRST THING he says to me is “You looked blonder in pictures.” Like ok….? We get some food and head to the park to eat it, when were at the park I’m trying to talk to him like a normal human would but ALL he can talk about is his EX….. Not like I can leave he’s my ride. I listened to this man talk about his ex for 2 hours. He talked about his ex so much I started to miss her. He started CRYINGGGG OVER THIS GIRL ON OUR FIRST DATE!!! Needless to say there was no 2nd date…..


Charlotte Germany: He asked if I wanted to go out with him to starbucks for valentines day, and When I agreed to go after school, he told me his mom was going to drive us there. His mother and little brother were in the car. She was grilling him about his grades and ignored me, and he was arguing with her. When we got to the Starbucks, his mother and brother sat at a table in the back while we sat somewhere else. He kept staring at me creepily and lip synced to the songs in the background while not breaking eye contact. At the end of the date, he asked if we wanted to hold hands. The drive home was more or less the same. I told him I didn’t want to go out again and he switched high schools.


Kandace Harlan: I really liked this guy and it was going good, I thought we were really getting to know each other and one day he asked me if I liked sea food. ( I don’t like sea food ) He proceeds to take me on a date where they only serve sea food and when it comes time to pay he can’t pay for it, instead of letting me pay for it he calls his mom up to the restaurant and he has her pay for it instead.  

Yeah; those were rough. 


We also have.. The what section. I have no idea what was going on in these. 

Bryston Trimble (9th): they wasnt saying sum on the date and my friends had lied abt they birthday to get a cake sb money got stolen.


Jacob Pope (9th): Hahahahaaaa!!! Hey guys, Boing, boing, boing! The Candy Man Lives On!!!! My suit is still pressed, and my briefcase is still full! 


Lucas Smith (9th): One time when I was in high school, I went on a date with myself and boy was it crazy, I rolled up with my smoking hot, oiled up pecs in my bugatti and unlocked the door for him. He stepped out of his little, humble shack in the woods and showed off his lumberjack build, it was mesmerizing. We went to go watch a movie but then the planes got hijacked and it was just so awkward.
