Most formal dates don't lend themselves to seeing what a person is like in 'real life.' They can seem wonderful, but flaws can easily be hidden even from very smart people. When you get to know them outside of the formal dating scene, you find out they are a monster...
I don't know many people who have NOT had some such experience! Tell us the grisly details..

Yep, years ago when I was young and foolish, I dated a real Adonis who was so chilvalrous toward me all the time. He made me feel really special.
Then I bumped into a friend of mine who, it turned out, was also dating him at the same time, and she was getting the exact same lines from him..and believing them.
We both went to see him together and dumped him together.2
