Dating in today’s society is becoming increasingly difficult, with former ‘norms’ virtually completely broken and new rules and expectations unclear in a technology-obsessed culture.
Online dating and applications like Tinder have the advantage of allowing you to get to know your date before meeting them in person; it’s usual to exchange texts for days and have a good notion of who you’re flirting with based on their Facebook profile, for example.
However, the following storey may cause you to reconsider your plans for luxury dinners and weekend getaways. Minilogo37, an Imgur user, quickly realised that his ‘date’ was more interested in the financial pleasures of a date than in his company, and that he was being duped.
What should you do if you find yourself in this situation? Grit your teeth and pay up, like the gentleman was supposed to do previously? Insist on a bill split, even if it means an awkward confrontation? Explain the situation to the server in hushed tones, pay him your half, and depart quietly?
