Needless to say, things were off to a horrendous start of horrific proportions.
With that general caveat out of the way, let's dive into our first horror story.
A Buzzfeed reader describes her first date with a guy she had been chatting with online.
Incidentally, he seemed normal, intelligent and funny at the time. This initial perception changed quickly upon first meeting.
When the hopeful couple sat down for their first drink, the first question out of the man's mouth was whether the woman was "up for anal".
She eventually came across Ian, a 6-foot-9 man with a sweet face, according to Anna.
