A novelist has revealed that a man with whom she went for a coffee date bought two cake pops and ate both of them for her – without even offering her one.
Author Alisha Rai took over twitter on Valentine’s Day to open up about her disappointing date and inadvertently started a heated online debate about whether the man’s actions were a red flag or not.
“Yesterday I met a man for coffee and he asked what I would like to drink and went to get the order,” she explained. “And he came back with two cake pops and I thought it was great that was cute! And then he ate them both. For me. …………. so as if he is clearly a monster. “
Thoughts? Author Alisha Rai went to Twitter on Valentine’s Day to ask if her date was a “monster” for eating two cake pops for her without asking if she wanted one
Yikes: In her tweets, she explained that she initially thought he had surprised her with a cake doll, but then she started eating them both
‘It is a whole day (almost twenty-four hours) later and I am still surprised about this man who is on a date and is buying two whole cake pops – which is equal to the number of people on this date – and not a single cake pop. Until that date, “she continued.
“I never want to feel that way again,” she commented. “I have to add that they were Valentine’s cake pops with little hearts on them.”
Alisha’s tweets have received more than 358,000 likes and many people agreed that the man was indeed a monster.
‘I wake up every day. And I kind of like, “men don’t have any more ways to be waste, right? There are no more ways.” One scroll later and I see it that way, “one person wrote.
“That’s the type of monster that wouldn’t have a floating door if the Titanic stinks. Cut it loose, “someone else insisted.
Old enough to know? The author of Right Swipe revealed in the comments that the man is 42 years old, but she has not shared any further details
How could he? Alisha’s story started a heated debate about date etiquette, many of whom agreed that the man was indeed a monster, or at least inconsiderate
“Did he leave the coffee shop to get on a plane and then slap the seat in front of him again and again? Because it sounds like something he could do, “another tweette said, referring to an airplane passenger who recently made headlines for punching the woman’s chair for him because she had laid it back.
Critics agreed that his thoughtless actions were a huge red flag, with a Twitter user explaining that he “had given her a snapshot of what marriage would be like to him.”
Another shared a photo of a cardboard box filled with red flags to clarify her thoughts about the situation.
One person even went so far as to quote Maya Angelou and wrote: “If someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”
Despite the huge backlash, not everyone was convinced that the man was wrong because he treated himself to not one but two cake pops.
Difference of opinion: notwithstanding the immense kickback, not everyone was convinced that the man was wrong because he treated himself to not one but two cake pops for her
“You all sound right to something that you can do just as easily to pay for yourself,” one person commented.
“The whole debate seems strange to me,” admitted another. ‘Am I the only one who simply orders what she wants without expecting someone else to take care of me? I would never expect someone else’s dessert. ”
Someone else emphasized that it really depended on his age and stated: “If he is in his thirties, then he is. When he is 23, he hasn’t learned it yet. “
But it was a point of criticism because Alisha noted and revealed that the man is actually 42 years old.
Those who opposed the man’s inconsiderate actions emphasized that it is only a simple case of manners.
“It’s not like she wanted a cake pop,” someone explained. “It’s the principle. Basic Ways 101 If you are going to get something, you offer it to the other person. EVERYONE I’m somewhere to order something, I say, “I get [ __ ], do you want one? “Just a kind of respect thing yk.”
Slipping into her DMs: after sharing her story, Alisha learned that there are many men who are more than happy to share a cake doll with her
With all the attention her tweet had received, Alisha took the opportunity to connect her new book, The Right Swipe.
‘If you like my tweets, you might like my books. They are just like my tweets, but longer and have a good ending and if they sell, I get more time to tweet (and date), “she tweeted.
She added: “If you are part of Humorless Twitter and have decided to spend days swearing at me that I am (obviously the world’s least ambitious) gold digger, you may not like my books. Or really everything, I imagine. Sorry.’
Strangely enough, after sharing her story, she learned that there are enough men who would like to share a cake doll with her.
“I’ve looked into my DM and it just seems like a series of men offering to buy me a cake pop,” she tweeted Monday.
‘As far as DM slides are concerned, this is extremely healthy. Fewer photos, men, more cake proposals. ”
