I guess my microsoft newsfeed has noticed my FDS habits because almost every day there's a "news" story about some dating situation gone awry. Today it was a TikTok where the man and woman both drove to a meeting place (a restaurant of a sort) but then, instead of going in and having a meal, he's standing outside her car trying to convince her to hop in his truck and drive to the house of one of his friends, who is supposedly waiting there with his own girlfriend and they can "double date" or rather just hang out at the friend's house. Or (much more likely) this scrote would drive her who-knows-where and something pretty terrible would happen.
The young woman starts filming the conversation (with her phone in her lap, so you can see the guy outside her car window) and it's so cringey to hear him trying all kinds of angles... "I drove 40 minutes" (to which she replies, "So did I")... "I thought you'd be down with meeting them"... "I went to all-boys middle school with this guy" (as if that means squat!)... and the really weird "You were in the Army, so I guess you could kick ass if you needed to" (look at that, he absolutely knows that she recognizes this as an unsafe situation, he just doesn't care). Oh, and he complains about the food at that (unseen) restaurant, says he doesn't want coffee because it would "make his heart race... even more than you're already making it race" (he's just randomly trying to blame her for anything at this point) and also "I don't know what there is to do around here."
The conversation goes on much longer than I would have let it, myself, but I'm just gonna go ahead and be proud of this young woman for standing up to him and leaving the situation eventually. I hope she blocked and deleted as soon as she was safely out of range.
