First dates are tough!

Sometimes they go smoothly, even beautifully, and you can't wait to see the other person again. And sometimes they're just downright awful.

Other times you spend quite a while feeling each other out, seeing if you vibe or not... only to have the weirdest questions directed your way.

Whether these people were asked about penis size or if they wanted to join a cult, we were thoroughly entertained after Redditor Oopsiedoopsieuwu asked the online community, "What was the weirdest question you got asked on a first date?"


"And then she meant it."

"Do you want to come back to my place and play my Mandolin?"

And then she meant it. I got a 45 minute Mandolin lesson at no charge.

"I once went on a date..."

I once went on a date that turned out to be a recruitment for a cult. So I guess being asked to join a cult would be the weird question.

"This was a few years ago..."

This was a few years ago but I once took a girl out who asked me to buy her an iPhone and when I laughed it off she told me she was serious. When I said no she asked if I would buy her a 12 pack of Mike's Hard Lemonade and at this point I was done. Turns out she lied about her age and was only 19. Took her home immediately and blocked her across the board.

"This dude told me..."

This dude told me I had a good wife aura whatever the hell that means and then he asked me if Id consider making him my husband. And it wasn't like a cute quirky joke or anything he was very serious and very odd and it's probably the most uncomfortable I've ever been. This guy also tried to tell my my severe allergies were all in my head.

"A dude once asked me..."

A dude once asked me how many fingers I could fit inside myself within the first ten minutes of meeting up.

"I didn't even answer..."

"If we have a son, would he have a small penis because you're asian?"

I didn't even answer the guy...I just left the restaurant and went home.

"I was born with cerebral palsy."

I was born with cerebral palsy. It impacts only my legs and is relatively mild. I walk with a pretty pronounced limp, but otherwise I do alright. Used to work in a call center and became fast friends with this woman who worked on my team. Eventually we went on a half assed date because she was going to be moving across the country in a few weeks. We got talking about my disability and she just up and asks out of nowhere:

"What is sex like for you? Is it difficult? You must have a pretty big dick though, right?"

I was just flabbergasted for a moment and laughed. I said: "Sex is no more difficult than anything else. As for my dick, I guess that depends on your point of reference."

I ended up asking her later why she would assume my disability would have granted me a magnum dong and she just said: "I don't know, there's gotta be a trade off somewhere."

We hooked up a few times before she left.

"Met a girl..."

Met a girl one time to go bowling. Before she got in my car she asked me if it was okay if she brought her bowling ball. Little did I know that she was the state champ bowler 2 years in a row and I got my @ss handed to me.

"Do you mean to give off such a strong Grandma energy?" The guy I was out with asked me this when I was 22. But now I realize that I do give off a strong grandma energy and just lean into it.

Kids start going to school from the age of five, and for the most part, they spend more time at school than at home. Because of that, teachers can become very important figures in the lives of their students.

Some students don't have the best home lives. Some keep it to themselves, but others confide in their teachers.

Curious about various situations, Redditor Delicious_Mastodon83 asked:

People Divulge What Depression Really Feels Like To Them

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
