Blind Date Leads To Hilarious Misunderstanding Over Text (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Blind dates are always potentially disastrous, and even more so for divorcees who've been out of the dating game for years.

That's what we were reminded of last week, after reading dating coach Sandy Weiner's primer on how to avoid a blind date from hell after divorce. One of her tips? Do your homework on the person you were set up with and don't be afraid to ask your matchmaking buddy why he or she thinks your date is such a great match for you.

Another pro tip for blind dates, as far as we're concerned? Be sure sure to call up a friend before the date and ask him or her to check in on you later, just to make sure everything went OK.

That's exactly what Imgur user squisheemittensface tried to do before a recent blind date, though things didn't go exactly as planned, unfortunately. Take a look:

Yikes! To sum up what we've learned: Do ask a friend to check up on you in case your blind date is a creeper. Don't send that text to the actual blind date.
