A woman has described the bizarre moment someone she went on a date with asked her to pay him back when she turned down a second date.
Posting on Twitter, the woman named Lauren shared screenshots detailing how her date tried to get £3.50 back for a coffee they had after she said she didn’t want to meet again. She said the incident happened six years ago.
When he asked if she wanted a second date, Lauren said she was “not sure” they had “chemistry” but wished him well.
Undeterred, he offered to cook her dinner at his place and urged her to “give us a chance”.
She said she wasn’t comfortable going to someone’s house who she barely knew and again tried to end the conversation.
This is what prompted his odd decision to ask: “Can you pay me back for your coffee?” adding: “I don’t like wasting money. Prefer to use it on a date with someone else.”
She said it was “a shame” he considered it a waste and suggested she donated the coffee money to charity instead.
In response, he sent her his bank details and said he wanted the money:
Her screenshots of the strange conversation went viral with over 3,344 likes. And reacting to her story, people thought her date sounded pretty lousy and that she handled the situation well.
