British expat Jordana Grace (pictured), 37, recalled the worst date she ever had while living in Australia in which the man expressed concern about her “biological clock”.
‘How is dating in Australia? Well buckle up, this is going to be one ugly ride,’ said Jordana, who goes by That British Girl online, on a TikTok. video.
“I was talking to an older man at church and he said, ‘I met my wife 20 years ago at church, how is dating now?'”
Jordana told the man, named David, that her experience has been “horrible” so far.
She said she recently did the Hell’s Gate coastal walk in Noosa on her last date and joked that the name should have been her ‘first clue’ that it would get worse.
“Halfway through the walk, this guy turns to me and says, ‘Yeah, I want kids, but I’m worried about your body clock,'” Jordana recalled.
Jordana said she made jokes about the comment for the rest of the date: “I keep going, ‘Oh my gosh, do you hear that? Tick, tick, tick, it’s my biological clock ticking.
“Well, I was worried because I wasn’t using enough sunscreen, but you sure keep going.”
The man reiterated his concern, saying he doesn’t want to waste Jordana’s time because he likes her, but he didn’t think she could have children for much longer ‘biologically speaking’.
‘Okay, we’re the same age,’ Jordana said acting out the conversation.
‘Yes, but it’s worse for women, isn’t it?’ the man said before she quipped, “I wonder if I can jump off that cliff.”
However, Jordana “hadn’t even gotten to the worst part” and said she made jokes about the comment for the rest of the walk.
“Because I was on this date and I was feeling so nervous and uncomfortable and for some reason I keep going, ‘Oh my gosh, do you hear that?'” she said.
‘Tick, tick, tick, it’s my biological clock.
Jordana’s clip racked up more than 93,800 views and a number of outraged comments.
‘Who mentions this on a first date?!’ one woman asked and a second pointed out: ‘Why did he go on a date with you if your age was an issue for him?’
“Biological clock” is where you might have used the Australian phrase “yes, no.” Closely followed by ‘See ya buddy,'” joked another.
‘So, you were expecting children by the end of the walk?’ someone laughed.
Others shared their own bad dating stories, including a woman who caught her boyfriend of just a few months writing in his journal when they should try for kids.
“One guy told me he wanted three kids before he was 40 (he was 38) and when I told him I couldn’t have any more kids he said *oh I can fix that*,” another woman recalled.
“It’s better than a guy asking me if I like being told what to do and doing what I’m told,” added a second.
