I don’t think this has been discussed here yet, but can we talk about the dude who asked for a refund on coffee after a bad Tinder date?

Dating is expensive and 80% of the time it’s cumbersome and tedious. And the bill at the end (or beginning) is almost always an awkward dance. Why is it so hard to just all agree to pay for ourselves?

I once went out on a date that I considered meh at best, and by the end when the bill came he said, “I’ll cover this bill if you agree to a second date.” It was a really awkward power play and really brought down the rest of the evening. I paid my half (I can afford my own $15 curry bill, thanks) and never talked to the guy again.

Tell me about your awkward dating and money stories. Did you ever have someone ask you for a refund?
