    Go a little crazy. Act irrationally.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: freak out on you

    'Have you ever had a man freak out on you for no
    good reason after a few great dates?'



    The context of this sentence means that after a few good times together, his behavior became weird.

    It could mean that he disappeared, also. But it would have been better to say:

    'Have you ever had a man bail out on you for no
    good reason after a few great dates?'
