You know you love them. The stories of everything that went wrong often start out as humiliating, but eventually wind up being plain hilarious. Of course, that doesn't mean you are actively seeking to make a fool out of yourself in front of your date or anyone else. Some stories seem to pop up over and over again, though. Don't be the next victim of these common dating disasters!

The Food Incident

There is always a good food story to be told. I've heard one about a boy trying to impress a girl by tossing food up and into his mouth – at a restaurant. Don't ask, apparently he thought it was cool. Anywho, one particularly juicy slice of tomato went flying behind his head and straight into the open purse of the lady behind him. The owner of the purse didn't notice, but the boy (and his mortified date) paid their bill very quickly and left.

Of course boys are always prime fodder for jokes and a bit of embarrassment, but sometimes there is nobody to blame but yourself. You wear white. You order spaghetti. You lose. Anything with sesame seeds or little pieces of spinach are a bad idea. Walking around with a big green tooth is not likely to put your man in a romantic mood – and it's totally embarrassing for him and you if he has to tell you about it. Be careful about garlic or fish breath as well.

The Bathroom Incident

For whatever reason, the bathroom is a prime place for embarrassment. I was on a date to a formal dance a while back. I made a half-joking comment to a friend about how lame things were so far and presto! His mother and younger sister, who were also attending, walked out of the stalls. Okay – that one is not funny yet, but I'm hoping someday it will be. It's been about seven years so far...

A good friend of mine, who is the sweetest creature on the planet, managed to tuck the end of a toilet paper roll into her jeans one time. She had a ten foot long tail of toilet paper behind her, walking around the restaurant with her boyfriend AND his entire baseball team. Fortunately she only wore her tail for about five minutes before someone told her, and she's able to laugh about it today. (Lucky her.)

The Bodily Function Incident

The classic tale of bodily functions involves passing gas loudly enough for your date or the occupants of the backseat to hear. Of course we all have bodily functions such as going to the restroom or a bit of gas, but a date is not the time to let it all hang loose. Be discreet, of course. Fortunately for me, I don't have a personal story about this although I have heard a few in my day.

The Clothing Incident

Okay, so it's technically not clothing, but one time my purse was sitting by my feet in my boyfriend's car. We were renting some movies and I went to step out of his car...and ended up falling out instead. My foot had caught in the strap of the purse. I tore a hole in my jeans and suffered a major blow to my pride. It's hard to look hot when you're eating asphalt.

I myself have stopped a girl or two coming out of the restroom with her skirt tucked into her underwear. At least those girls were wearing underwear.Britney Spears can demonstrate the embarrassment that can come from forgetting all together.

A shirt a girl thought was safe can go very wrong in black lights, and anything that prevents you from bending at the waist is probably a bit dangerous – especially because you never know what sort of date your guy might plan.

Dating is fun, and it's supposed to be relaxed and occasionally funny. Nobody wants to be the butt of the joke, but if it happens to you, don't sweat it. A good guy will laugh along with you, not at you. Believe me, I know how embarrassing it can be, but just do your best to laugh it off and move on. There is a whole lot more to life than the entire world knowing what color underwear you are wearing today.

My dad is already telling me what he's going to do. Luck me on that one because I'll be ready. But still. My biggest fear is getting asked soon because I can't date yet, and wearing something formal and he coming to the door in jeans and a tee and me haveing to change because it's a casual date or via.

I once fell down the stairs, bouncing on my butt, in front of the guy I liked, his mom, and his sister. I was mortified. These are great stories though :]

PLZ do an article on how to get a friend! There is a really hot guy in my class and I think he likes me! The only problem is I'm too scared to talk to him. I can't date so I would like him as a friend!

Hehe. Some of those would suck.

My friend err...passed gas on the first date she had with her boyfriend. She didn't really care. Everyone does it. But he just laughed and did it too. lol.

But it was a good article.
