When they actually went on the date though, it was apparently clear she wasn't interested in him. Describing his first impression of his date, he said "she didn't look at him" and "was wearing sweatpants." What she was interested in was the food and "immediately ordered a $13 appetizer." He admitted alarm bells started going off, but it wasn't a "deal breaker," maybe she was just nervous?
Things didn't get any better as the date went on and she seemed more interested in the food than him. Claiming he did try to start a conversation "a few times," he said he got shut down and she "only gave one-word answers." The date wasn't going bad enough for either to leave though, and they ordered their mains, with her going for "a $25 steak and $22 crab legs. She drank 4 $9 glasses of wine."
He ordered a steak and some wine too, but even before the food arrived claimed he'd "pretty much given up" on any hope of romance and noted that "she talked more to the waiter." By this time the guy was convinced the date was a cover for her to score a free meal he would have to pay for and was not happy.
So what does he do? Pay for his half of the meal and leave? Make some excuse about needing to cut the date short? Seeking refuge in the restroom, he came up with his plan to get revenge on his bad date: "As we were finishing, I excused myself and went to the restroom. While I was in there, a light bulb went off."
After the awful experience, he decided he wasn't about to become the girl's meal ticket and the only option to escape the nightmare was to dine and dash. While his date waited for him back at the table, he discreetly "left the bathroom, headed out the door, got in my car, and drove home." Leaving her with the entire $150 bill.
Unsurprisingly, his date was furious he ditched her. She apparently messaged him calling him "a 'f*****' about twelve times." No word if she paid the entire check. After posting his horror story online, many congratulated him for playing "the player at her own game" and said he "handled that like a champ." But not everyone agreed.
