There's a variety of struggles that come along with living the single life.
But, you know what's the worst thing about being bae-less? Going on first dates.
Yep, if there's one thing I could definitely do without, it's the disappointment of going on yet another date and it turning out to be a disaster.
I never really realized how awful dating could be until I moved to New York City.
This place may be known as "The City of Dreams," but when it comes to going out with the people who live here, you might as well rename this place "The City of Dating Nightmares."
From awkward dinner dates and Tinder prospects who look nothing like their pictures to dates who drunkenly threw up on me, men who lied about being married and guys who were just straight-up weirdos -- I think I've gone on enough bad dates by now to write a whole damn book.
However, none of my dating dilemmas can compare to the horrible first date this woman recently went on.
I mean, don't get me wrong, there's nothing bad about going on a double date to ease the tension of meeting someone for the first time -- unless, of course, the other couple happens to be your parents... and you're a grown-ass adult.
Let's be real, nothing puts a damper on your date quite like some parental supervision.
Apparently, other people have also been using Whisper to dish out the deets on their sh*tty dating experiences, and once you read some of these first-date fails, you'll probably feel a whole lot better about your own dating life.
