Television dates have a habit of going extremely well or extremely bad. It's all too rare for it to fall in the middle.
Some dates were so amazing that we were jealous just watching them, and others were so cringe-worthy that we couldn't stand the second-hand embarrassment.

As a result, our expectiations either became too high, or too low.
We created a slideshow below of 13 TV dates we wish we never attended!
Eric and Donna's first date - That 70's Show
There's only one word that properly sums up this one: disastrous. Eric and Donna were both nervous about their first date, but Donna was able to let loose when she was accidentally served Long Island Iced Tea instead of regular Iced Tea.
Cheryl and Toni's unofficial "Love, Simon" date - Riverdale
The inclusion of this movie on Riverdale was perfect as it helped Cheryl come to terms with who she is. We were just jealous that they got to see the movie before us!
Doug and Carrie's vacation - King of Queens
Doug took Carrie to a wilderness resort that they had been to in the past, but as it turns out, she wasn't the girl he came with the first time. They ended up fighting the entire trip and went their separate ways in the wilderness. As you can see, Carrie fared a bit better than he did.
Jane and Michael's recreated date - Jane the Virgin
Remember when Jane and Michael recreated one of their first dates and were the cutest couple on the planet? Maybe if we never would have seen moments like this, the later seasons of the show would hurt less.
Tate and Violet's Halloween date - American Horror Story
Halloween is the only time each year that Tate is able to leave the house. It sounded like it would be a great night and a good opportunity for them to have some normalcy, but Tate and Violet were threatened by a group of ghosts that Tate had killed. Knowing that information changed our opinion of Tate completely, and we couldn't help but wish that everything that was said that night was a lie.
Nick and Jess' first date that wasn't a date, and then was - New Girl
To start off, Nick asked Jess out by calling her his toilet sister. That's always the way to a girl's heart. We couldn't help but cringe every time Nick let his nerves take over and said things that probably weren't first-date appropriate. The number of tickets they received for jaywalking while trying to decide if they were on a date or not made us want to haul ass out of there.
