Guy Finds A Date On Tinder, However After Meeting Her He Soon Realizes Something Is Not Right

Dating in this day and age is an increasingly fraught affair, with the breakdown of previous ‘norms’ almost complete and new rules and expectations far from clear in a technology obsessed world.

Online dating and apps like Tinder do have the advantage of getting to know your date pretty well before actually meeting, it is common to exchange texts for days and have a pretty solid idea of who you are flirting with through their Facebook profile etc.

However the following story might make you think twice about jumping straight into fancy dinners and weekends away. Imgur user minilogo37 quickly realised that his ‘date’ was more interested in the material benefits that a date can bring, rather than his company, and he was being played.

What to do in such a situation? Grit your teeth and pay up, as the gentleman was previously expected to do? Insist on a bill split, with a potentially embarrassing confrontation? Quietly explain the situation to the waiter, pay him your share and leave quietly?

Scroll down below to see how minilogo37 dealt with his unscrupulous ‘date,’ and the ensuing discussion about modern dating ethics. What’s your take on the situation? Let us know in the comments!

Commenters were quick to applaud his actions

But some had other ideas

What is your take on the situation?

It’s sounds like she used him, but it is only from his side of the story. What every really happened, just leaving is terrible thing to do. Don’t be little ++++ and own situation, not run away from it!

Right! Be a gentleman and ask her what is going on, why is she so not interested on the date. THEN you can tell her to pay her meal, if you think she tries to take advantage on a free meal.

I dunno, maybe slip the money for your part to the waiter on your way out so she only gets stuck with her part to pay?

This is ridiculous. Something hardly worth congratulating or justifying. The post about this talks about heroic dogs. This man is hardly a hero and just a dog. She definitely deserved it IF getting free food was her motive, BUT it still wasn't fair OR mature to ditch her.

Do NOT call this man a dog. Dogs are wonderful friendly loyal beautiful animals. Calling this man a dog is an insult to dogs just like calling her a b*itch is an insult to a dog.
