For those people, men and women, who have given someone a pity date, I would like to ask you why you did that and how did it turn out? No judgment (from me, I can't guarantee others of course), I'm just curious.
To those who have given pity dates, why did you do that?

I personally have never gone on a pity date. I lead a busy life, so I see it as a total waste of time to go out with someone I'm not attracted to. But I have girlfriends who've done it. They said, and I quote, "Hey, it's free food and drinks! It's not like he's gonna get into my pants anyway!" Yeah, I'm not proud of them for doing this either. But I guess this is how some women think.0
I can't like a guy before I get to know him. Looks can please me for a moment, but do nothing for me.
So I went out on a few dates to just get to know them. I didn't take it as pity, or as interest. Just neutral. =/0
Bored, Did not know how to say no. I dont do that anymore.0
I never have, but it's because people can't say NO. They feel they owe the person and feel badly for them. It's just not good for everyone involved.0
Yes i ended up going out with a guy just out of pity. I've known him for a while and he constantly asks me out... Well one time i was just like "fine whatever ill go out with you, just stop asking already!!"
The date ended up actually not sucking too badly. In the end we went on a few more dates before eventually making it official and going out together lol :P
The reason i didn't want to go out with him was because i had been through something traumatic and didn't want to bring any of that into a relationship. Also him being a friend, i didn't want him to find out about what i had been through... Might have been stupid reason but whatever!! :P0
I wouldn't call it a "pity date." but i'll go out with a guy at least one just to see.0
