After a string of bad first dates & drunken hook ups, a few post-grad friends got to talking about these instances. These experiences were similar; a feeling of almost familiarity accompanied a story about a tequila induced night with a friend’s friend that you would sooner forget.
It begged the question: did talking about it make the first date with a kleptomaniac better? Did sharing these experiences and hearing others almost make up for the drunken night with a guy who secretly collected stuffed animals?
Yes. Yes it did.
Hence, the idea for No Second Date was spawned.
No Second Date is an online forum for people to share their awful first date and hook up stories anonymously. Newly single, currently single, formerly single – everyone has a story that desperately needs to be shared (even if only for schadenfreude). The time he talked about zombie movies during sex. Or the time you went out with a friend’s friend who ended up yelling at a waitress. These are the stories we love to tell and hear – No Second Date is a place to do both.
Here are the guidelines:
1) Submit your stories here. This is an anonymous uploader. If you have any issues, you can also send stories to noseconddate(at)gmail.com
2) Stories should be under 500 words. However, we do understand that some stories may (painfully) be longer. That is fine, but please try to stay under 500.
4) Stories are categorized by location and by tags. This allows us to find stories that are near us, near where we grew up, and that are similar to ours. For example, you may have a story that involved “peanut butter.” Don’t you want to know that someone else has just an awful a story involving lunch items?
5) Don’t be scared to be completely honest. He tried to put what where? She said what? He actually cried at the dinner table? This is the stuff everyone wants to hear - so don’t hold out on us.
Come on - get that bad date off your chest.
