Dating Disasters: Who had it the worst?

We asked, somewhat innocuously, "What's the WORST thing you've ever discovered in a date's apartment?" Oh, heavens to Betsy, did you ever answer, and we alternately laughed ourselves sick and were sickened by the horrific things you've encountered. There were tons of comments at the post and on our Facebook page, and we want YOU to help us pick the very best of the worst - the winner might get a prize, to help ameliorate their pain and mental trauma from the experience. Here are our top five favorites:

Heather P. from Facebook: snooped in his bathroom cabinet and found a jar full of toenails. EW.

Katie N. from Facebook: A browser history full of bestial porn. Even if you are "just curious," there's a limit your curiosity should reach, and that was way past it.

Victoria from comments: His protective cup from elementary school soccer. And not because he just forgot it-- because his mom "wouldn't let him" throw it out. Turns out she was still making all his decisions.

Caitlin, from comments: I don't even know how to say this. I walked into his bathroom to discover the residue from his zits smeared all over his mirror. He must have been working on it for at least 5 years. Couldn't he have just reached over for a piece of toilet paper?

CK, from comments: I found a collection of random girls' items on his dresser--sunglasses, rings, make-up, all kinds of stuff. Only later did I realize my lip gloss was missing from my purse and, of course, saw it in the pile the next time I was over... basically, he kept souvenirs from the girls he saw! Ew... luckily I didn't stick around to see what else he liked to collect. (And I left my lip gloss, too.)

I think everyone who endured these HORRORS deserves a prize. I had to give my nod to Caitlin - that literally turned my stomach, but they are all really really terrible. Ugh.

This blog really is hitting all-time lows.

Everyone has things they don't want other people to see, regardless of one's gender. That's not to say that these above things aren't strange, but what about the fact that these people are snooping around to find them? And then you're willing to share them, especially the person from Facebook - it's just an open call for stalking.

Stick to products. This mindless and sexist trash from a recycled Cosmopolitan just shows how much more professional Uncrate is compared to Outblush.

Fine, then, don't read it. Buh-bye!

Anonymous - your spiteful bile is uncalled for. I loved this post and hope to see more like it soon!

Agreed! Geez, Anonymous, take a freakin' chill pill! If you don't like it, quit the hate and go somewhere else, maybe start your own damn blog!

Keep up the awesome posts, Outblush!

Thanks, everybody! We also had a good time with this one. As people who are swimming in Outblush day after day, the experimentation is the coolest part! We like to try something different every now and again!
