People on Twitter are talking about their worst dates and Patricia Arquette’s answer is dark

People on Twitter are talking about their worst dates and Patricia Arquette’s answer is dark

The actor had a shocking response in a thread populated with awkward moments and odd stories.

I have a working theory that pretty much everyone has an amazing anecdote. Some people have loads, but I think we all have at least one good one. They’re often sort of thing that doesn’t make sense to just bring up in random conversation, but should a relevant topic come up, you know people will be interested.

This is why I love Twitter threads that get hundreds of responses. Even seemingly simple questions, like ‘What thing from your childhood did you think was normal until you grew up?’, or ‘What’s the most ridiculous name you’ve ever heard in real life?’ get incredible responses. 

(For example, in primary school, one of our teachers, Mrs Potter, named her son Harry about two years before anyone had heard of a certain wizard.)

Recently, the question of awkward dates was brought up, and it got some pretty hilarious responses.

However, actor Patricia Arquette responded with a story that was a little darker than most. She wrote that she went on a second date with a pro skateboarder who was a friend of a friend. However, something about the way he kissed put her off, and she didn’t see him again. She then found out years later that he killed one of his girlfriends.

Another person responded, asking what the kiss was like that freaked her out, and she replied, “It felt aggressive. Like pushing me back hard with his jaw and it felt like it was angry.” 

So while her lucky escape might be the most shocking response, there were also some pretty funny ones. See below for some of our favourites.
