Today, I went on a date. Met the guy at the restaurant, everything seemed to be going OK, but then he spent the entire dinner talking about Pokemon GO, and wouldn't let me say a word. He suddenly stops talking, gets up, says he, "doesn't feel a connection" and leaves. I had to pay the bill. FML

#10 you read it wrong. The guy is a jerk because he was the one who got up and left leaving OP to pay the bill. Also, he did not let the OP talk at all.

In #10's defense, s/he is referring to a different FML where OP (a guy) forgot his wallet and his date freaked out on him, so people were saying good riddance because his date was insensitive, unreasonable, etc.

In both these situations, the guy did not pay. However, in this FML we consider him a jerk, whereas in the other FML people mostly considered him the "victim". I think #10 was trying to say that we pick different sides depending on the situation and that somehow it isn't fair. However, my response is that every situation is different and you can't compare them just because of minor similarities (in this case, guys who don't pay) because the differences tend to outweigh the similarities. Hence, we will react in very different ways.

Hope that clears things up!

Ah, men like him give me hope! Hope that I won't be the worst date some poor sod has.

"Alright, now what can we order to ensure our bill comes out to be a multiple of five dollars?"

"What? Why would yo—"

"Hey, at least I'm not talking about Pokémon Go nonstop and abruptly leaving you with the bill!"


No, she probably either expected them to split it, they pay for their own orders, or in some cases, the one who asked for the date is the one who pays. If the guy asked her out, I can understand her thinking he'd be the one to pay. In any case though, the guy was a dick, not letting her speak, talking about just one topic, then abruptly leaving making her pay for everything, that's not right. If he was going to leave early because he wasn't feeling anything, that's fine, but he could have been more polite about it, and the least he could do is pay for his half.
