A Guy Bills a Woman For Half the Cost of Their First Date When She Turns Down a Second Date

I’m really torn between whether the guy in this story is comically cheap, or a hero.  A 38-year-old woman named Lucy Brown from London met a guy on Plenty of Fish last week and they went on a date to a bar.  But when he contacted her about a second date, she said she wasn’t really interested.

 

So the guy sent her a long text message, asking her to pay him $53 for her half of their first date.  “I really [liked] you and saved up some money to take you on a nice date.  As it didn’t work out, I’d be grateful if you could send along something to contribute for the drinks I spent on you thinking I’d at least get to see you again.”

 

And, Lucy actually sent him the money.  She also donated the same amount to a donkey sanctuary which, first of all, is apparently something that exists and, second of all, is a not-so-subtle message that she thinks he’s a jackass.

 

(Here’s a picture of Lucy and the text the guy sent asking for the money.)
