If you’ve ever been on a date that ended badly, then you know just how incredibly awkward they can be. While you may THINK celebrities are immune to dating disasters, it turns out that they, too, understand that going out with someone for the first time has the potential to end in serious horror. Selena Gomez couldn’t get her potential bae to talk. Hilary Duff‘s dating crisis was SO bad that she won’t even go into detail. And Bella Thorne — wait for it — got her period for the first time while out with her crush. Feel a bit better about yourself yet?
In the moment of a bad first date, it’s easy to think your life is totally ruined and you’ll never be able to find love again (blah blah blah), but eventually you’ll be able to laugh at what went wrong — just like these female Disney Channel stars!
Selena's self-proclaimed worst first date may not seem too awkward to you, but she was absolutely miserable!
"[The guy I went out with] was very shy, so I was sitting there trying to ask questions and fill in the awkward spaces," she explained. "I really like getting to know someone, so I love talking."
Pretty sure they didn't go out again.

Demi once dated Hannah Montana actor Cody Linley, but the relationship didn't last too long...maybe because they went on the worst date ever!
The 27-year-old told Seventeen magazine that he was one super late picking the 24-year-old up because he was having car issues, and once they were finally together the problem happened again!
I had to stop the car and get out," he explained. "Demi was really sweet. She held the light for me and put in her car repair advice."

In an interview with Hollywood Life, Bella talked about how she got her period for the first time when she was on a date with a guy who would later become her boyfriend. She initially tried to play it cool, but ended up crying because her bae "did notice."

As if it wasn't bad enough that Lucy's date was on his phone during their entire first meeting, wait until you hear WHO he was texting!
"I was on a date with a guy once, and he wasn't aware that I could see his cell phone...and the fact that he was actually texting romantic messages to another girl," she told Wetpaint.com.

The OG Disney Channel queen's first-date horror story probably trumps everyone else, because it happened with Shia LaBeouf!
The Even Stevens star told Details magazine that he took the Lizzie McGuire girl out for a sushi dinner, but didn't go into further details because it was "probably the worst date either of [them] ever had."
What could've possibly happened????

Britney Spears may be the Princess of Pop, but she's really just a regular person who has first-date disasters like the rest of us. The woman's worst dating experience actually came not too long ago, when she went to the movies with a guy she had a big crush on.
She explained in Marie Claire magazine, "I could tell right away that it wasn't working. It was sort of awkward. So after the movie I came home and that was it. He just wasn't that into me. I liked him. He knew that. But he definitely didn't feel the same. It happens to everyone. Being famous doesn't make you any different."
So true, Brit.
