Share Share Tweet Image via FirstDateHell.comIn what now feels like it was another life, I treated the search for a significant other like a second job. Therefore, as you can imagine, I kissed a LOT of frogs. I dated even more. And nine times out of ten, the frogs were nothing short of frightening. I lamented to my girlfriends over happy hour and Facebook, but I often had the urge to shame some of the real schmucks on a much bigger scale. That’s why I really wish First Date Hell existed then! I’m talking about the new U.K.-based website and accompanying Twitter account — started by a writer named Rhodri Marsden — which has made it its mission to allow horrified daters to publicly shame and humiliate their “crap first dates” in 140 characters. Ha!! Think FMyLife.com, but just first dates. Amazing!More from The Stir: Are These Celeb Guys Hotter With a Buzz Cut?Obviously, there are more than just a handful of people who feel as I did when I was single and hating the hunt. There were 2,000 followers of @FirstDateHell this morning, and now, there are over 4,500!Check out some of the brilliant, hilarious, cringe-worthy tweets that have already run on the site:@Kristainchicago tweeted:First date. asked my age. Me: “32, why?” Him: “Well, I really want kids and at 32, your ovaries are dying.”(OH. MY. God.)@The_Moviegoer tweeted:Guy came to get me in his new Porsche. Before I got in, he put a towel on my seat because “girls can sometimes be sweaty down there.”Ewwwwww!@Emilyhill1982 tweeted:Told him I liked reading, he said he wanted to burn all libraries and then talked about football for hours. I hid in the loo.OMG, I would have, too! Wait, I mean, I should have! I am still smacking myself on the forehead for NOT just upping and leaving when I was on dates like, er, well, all of the above. But now, at least, thanks to @FirstDateHell, I know I wasn’t alone!More from The Stir: 20 Hilarious Sex Quotes From Our Favorite ComediesMarsden is brillz for letting people share their horror stories like this, not only because it has got to be SUCH sweet revenge to tell the entire Internet what a d-bag your date was, but also because daters could use all the support they can get. The single life is cruel, cold, and scary. At least now, there’s this virtual “support group,” so to speak!What do you think about @FirstDateHell? What was your worst first date like?by The_Stir
Head coach Brent Crouch was proud of the effort his squad displayed despite injuries and is confident in its abilities going forward. With 10 of their 20 remaining matches coming against ranked opponents, the squad will be challenged to respond to adversity as it has done early on this season if it wants to build on last year’s strong performance. “We are not 100% [health-wise],” Crouch said. “We are getting there … We are looking forward to getting everyone practicing at 100% and really [hitting] the Pac-12 schedule in stride.” This is USC’s third 3-0 sweep this season, and it hopes to carry this momentum into Pac-12 play beginning Wednesday against UCLA. The Bruins were swept in their last two matches by No. 11 Hawaii and UC Santa Barbara, while the Trojans enter conference play ranked No. 25 in the nation. Senior outside hitter Khalia Lanier had a season-high 18 kills along with 19.5 points against the Toreros. USC regained its strength in the second game of the week against Long Beach State. The Trojans had 15 kills and four aces in the first set, taking it 25-21. They easily won the second set 25-11 with an additional 15 kills. The third set proved to be more difficult, but USC held the lead, finishing the sweep 25-20. The match against San Diego was a tough fight throughout the full five sets. USD won the first two sets, and USC struggled to keep up given the Toreros’ effective blocking. However, the Trojans stayed resilient after going down 2-0 and were able to battle back in the third and fourth sets to tie it up 2-2. Senior outside hitter Khalia Lanier had a combined 39.5 points in the Trojans’ two games this past weekend. ( Sinead Chang / Daily Trojan) The fifth set was tight, but USC fell behind 14-11 due to an overturned call. The Trojans couldn’t come back from the deficit, losing 15-13 and ending in a three-games-to-two loss. Lanier led the Trojans in the second match with 20 points and 17 kills. Junior outside hitter Brooke Botkin had a career high with six kills, six digs and four of the Trojans’ 12 service aces. Following its three-win performance at the Trojan Invitational — including a sweep of Villanova, which entered the game with a 5-1 record on the season — No. 20 women’s volleyball fell to San Diego 3-2 Thursday before swiftly defeating Long Beach State 3-0 Friday.
