This Man Wants £8.30 Back After His Tinder Date Politely Denies A Second Date

FML for any woman in the dating game, and especially on Tinder.

An extremely salty 29-year-old man did not take rejection well when his tinder date politely refused to go on another date with him, The Daily Star reported after a screenshot of the text exchange went viral on Reddit.

In a completely acceptable fashion, the woman texted him after the date saying that she didn't really feel it.

“I don’t think we have much chemistry so there won’t be another date. But it was lovely meeting you and I wish you all the best!”

But the fragile man’s ego shattered into a thousand tiny pieces upon reading the message, and he fired back quickly with what was quite possibly the world’s pettiest response.

Really, we’re shocked that this man is single.

Dude, most men pay for a whole dinner. You aren’t going to make it very far if your cheap ass thinks buying your date a drink is too much. Maybe don’t offer to pay if you’re hoping that they will choose something cheap? The woman should have replied and told him that her time was worth way more than  £8, and that in fact, he owed her at least  £22 for being such a terrible date.

So, the man is still on the market, ladies. Any takers?

When I was dating I always at least offered to pay for my own stuff the first couple of dates, especially if I didn’t already know the guy. I wanted to owe no one anything. I advise other women to do the same. Although maybe it’s a way to eliminate creeps and assholes sooner!

I get where you're coming from definitely, but it's worth mentioning that women do not owe men anything REGARDLESS of whether or not he paid.

It’s not only that I don’t want to owe a man anything after a first date, it’s also how I present myself. When I go to a date I present myself as a true equal. I decide with whom I go out, I participate in the decision where we go, I decide what I eat and drink and of course I pay my own bill. A man doesn’t have to pay for me because he has a penis. Additionally, a man cannot buy my affection with drinks and dinner. So ladies, if you have at least a little bit self-respect split the bill on a first date. Afterwards you can work something out. If you insist he pays the entire bill he might see you and treat you as an inferior person.

i read this story somewhere else, she did offer to buy her own drink but he wouldn't let her. she asked for a glass of ice long island ice tea but he decided to buy a pitcher which was why it was £8 (at a wetherspoons)

Absolutely NO!!
Just because there was no personality or emotional connection - especially from you since You told him first, he decided to be an a**hole!! Now everybody will see just what kind of guy he really is!!
Just tell him “ No, bye!!”

1. She probably didn’t realize the price of the drink to begin with. Bars typically don’t have a menu with the prices of certain drinks.

2. What’s the appropriate amount of dates? One date — she’s not giving him a chance. Multiple dates — she’s leading him on. It can be very clear from just one date that you’re not right for each other. There’s no reason to try again when there’s nothing there.

3. Had she said “let’s go out again!” I’m sure he would have had no problem paying for that drink. The fact that she turned him down is the only reason he’s asking for his money back.

Next time split the bill; don’t pay with the expectation of getting more.

If you don't think it's fair to pay for a woman's drink, don't do it. Don't offer to, and if she asks you to you can say no. Perfectly valid. If she bails on the date because you didn't want to bankroll her, move on with your life. You're a freaking adult, you control your actions. Buying a drink does not give you control over another person, and having a date drink a drink you paid for and then not sleep with you does not make you an exploited victim.

He's right. He didn't have to pay for the drink. He chose to. Clearly he chose to for reasons that he now considers invalid. Therefore, he was assuming that that drink *bought* him something and is now hitting up the complaint department to ask for a refund.

Honestly, this is why I ask to meet at a bar or coffee shop. I'm always early so I can buy my own drink without it being awkward. If he offers to buy another, that's on him. Otherwise, no big deal. We get to talk without the looming question of "the check."

I gotta admire his nerve, but there’s no chance in hell he’s getting any money back.

It does send a signal to girls who decide there’s no future to not order anything really expensive.
