A man had met a woman on a dating app, and they headed on their first date together for coffee. The date had been a casual affair and the man had hoped to simply get to know her better, so he could never have imagined that he would be finishing the date with a guilty conscience.
A Boring Coffee
The man expressed that the date went OK, but it was nothing special. “It was a bit boring; we grabbed our cup of coffee (I paid), we chatted for a bit, and then we decided to drive to a cool little outdoor park to go for a walk”.
A Drive To The Park
The park was a 30-minute drive away, so there was plenty of opportunity for light conversation. The man and his date shared some basic information about themselves and got to know each other better.
A Brief Interruption
Upon arrival at the park, something unexpected occurred. The man had briefly excused himself to use the restroom, and when he returned, the woman was talking to a guy who was being very flirty.
Just Her Friend
The man explained what happened next: “When I walked up to them, he asked who I was and she responded, ‘Oh he’s just my friend hahaha’”. The mystery man then told the woman he wanted to grab her number to go out for a drink sometime.
“She was all too happy to give him the number”, the man remembered. “They then hug with a kiss on the cheek before he leaves. At this point, I was already over it”.
The man continued to explain his loss of interest: “I wasn’t that interested in her in the first place, but if she’s the type of person to show interest in another guy and exchange info in front of me, I definitely have no future with her”.
Getting Out Of There
The man had made his decision. He made up an excuse to move away from her briefly, before heading to his car secretly and driving off.
“I didn’t want to have to deal with her company for a 40-minute drive, and was just over it”, the man explained. However, he admitted that he did feel quite bad for his actions, although he also felt it was somewhat justifiable considering her flirtatious encounter just minutes before.
Reflecting On His Actions
Whilst the man recognized that he had only just met this woman, he still felt that it was super inappropriate and rude for her to flirt with another guy right in front of him. However, he imagined that the woman became stranded, and with the park 40 minutes away from her house, he wondered if he had overreacted and acted coldly.
Seeking A Verdict
The man posted his story online, curious to see what other people thought of his actions. Initially, neither of the people were popular. “Although it’s understandable why you were angry, it’s just not right to leave a woman 40 minutes from her home”, stated one reader.
A Disrespectful Woman
However, a few ladies chimed in on the thread and actively took the man’s side. “If I’m lucky enough to get a date that is generous enough to buy me drinks and drive me for free, I can hold myself for a day and not openly flirt and call you “just a friend hahaha”, remarked one female reader.
It’s Just Wrong
The man was relieved to see more positive comments flooding through in his favor. “You just don’t flirt and exchange numbers with someone else while on a date”, another commenter stated. “I’m sure she could sort out her transport home”.
She’s An Adult
Whilst some commenters criticized the man for his treatment of the woman, others still defended him. “You are both adults and you are not her chaperone”, someone pointed out. “It wasn’t night time, it was a safe area, and women don’t need escorting everywhere. Just because she is a woman does not mean she is incapable of doing basic things like catching the bus.”
