Everyone has experienced a bad date in their lifetime and to commemorate these events that will forever be etched into people's memories two women have come together to create 'Bad Date Great Story.' It is a website that provides a sense of solidarity and even pieces of advice. People are encouraged to share their experiences with the world, showing viewers that they are not alone when it comes to their own bad dates.

Founded by Jessie Male and Emi Soekawa, 'Bad Date Great Story' is essentially a fun forum that lets people not only share, but vent as well. As to their inspiration, Male and Soekawa write, "We were two single women in our 20s, living in post-recession Brooklyn. So, life was just like all the TV shows would have you imagine: We drank a lot of cheap beer, complained about our jobs, and went on a lot of bad dates. A lot of bad dates."
