The YSA ward—there's nowhere quite like it. That's why we've rounded up all of our favorite resources to help you navigate through your single years.

We know dating can be awkward sometimes, but these hilarious things Mormons have said on first dates really take the cake. We just had to share.

We asked our readers on Facebook about some of the worst things someone has said to them on a first date. We absolutely loved what we read. The responses were too hilarious not to share. 

1. My first date in Utah went like this: We prayed in the car before we left "to be in  tune with the Spirit," he tried to hold my hand the entire time, told me "I passed the girlfriend test," and took me to Temple Square and during conversation took my hand and massaged my ring finger. Yeah...couldn't end soon enough. -Midge

2. Got this text about 15 minutes before he was due to pick me up for a blind date: "How do you want to raise your children?" -Hollie 

3. I have been taught about the three degrees of glory on a first date. -Brooke

4. "I've always wanted 24 kids . . . how do you feel about that?" -Marisa

5. One guy talked at length about how excited and prepared he was for the zombie apocalypse. . . . -Nicole

6. One girl told me "I want babies. Lots and lots of babies. Like, right now. Sometimes I wish it didn't take a guy to have babies." - Hyrum

7. Talk at length (positively) about their date the previous week with a different guy. -Addison

8. I had a guy tell me he knew I was his future wife . . . scared me to death. -Teri

9. "Do you think you could lower your standards?" -Marisa

10. One guy asked for my roommate's phone number while on our date. He asked if it was okay and was shocked when I didn't oblige. -Midge

11. One blind date said to me "Ok you're attractive, you seem like a nice guy, you seem normal, you have a great job, but you're in your 30's and still single. So you must be divorced, addicted to porn, or gay. Which is it?" -Jonny

12. I met this guy's mom on our super awkward first date, and later in front of my friends he blurted out, "My mom thinks you'll be a great mom!" -Jannalee

13. He turned to me and said, "So, you're a girl, huh?" -Jana

14. I went on a first date where every 15 minutes he would ask me if I liked him, how much, and if I would go out with him again. -Christine

15. "You're not really calling this a date, are you?" -Gonzalo

16. "People think I sing like Josh Groban." -Melissa

17. I was proposed to once on a first date. Needless to say . . . I never went out with her again. #scariestdateofmylife. -Patrick

18. At the end of a pretty good first date, I once had a girl ask me the big pornography question when I walked her to the door. I'm not opposed to girls asking about this, but the first date seemed a little soon for me. -Robby

19. "I'm not trying to get fresh with you. That will come later." -Alison

20. "Do you ever talk to colors? I do all the time. I always wanna be like, 'Yo! Red! Why don't you just blue it up a little!?! Stop being so harsh!' What colors do you talk to?" -Corinne
