Woman's Tinder Date Goes Terribly As She Has To Escape From A Boat
Bad dates are a nightmare. For my worst date, a girl and I went to a pub in a really shit part of London (where she was attending university) and, when we got there, we literally had nothing to talk about. I was on terrible form and kept talking about her ex. There’s not even a punchline. It was just a bad date.
At least I could have gotten out whenever I wanted to though.
For Kayla Hutch, 24, when her date went pear shaped, she was more or less trapped at sea.
Around a year ago, she matched on Tinder with a guy who we’re going to call Ronathan. Not much happened between them but, after deleting and re-downloading the app, Kayla matched with Ronathan again – except this time they properly talked to each other…
“Lmao!!!!!!” is an immediate unmatch, in my eyes.
She claims that she wasn’t really into Ronathan but he seemed really nice over text and such and was a bit of a dreamboat… which is a coincidence because that’s exactly where he took her!
Ronathan told Kayla that a cousin of his had rented a boat for a party and she agreed to be his date for said event. She told Buzzfeed:
“I wasn’t that interested in him the entire time which is why it had taken so long […] But he was so persistent and really nice over text so when he brought up the idea of going on a Labor Day boat ride, it sounded nice and I thought I’d give him a chance.”
So much potential for boat jokes squandered. Also, is it just me or does 7:09PM seem like a really odd time to charge your phone?
Anyway, problems arose when Kayla got to the boat and saw that, instead of a healthy mix of boys and girls, there was like five guys and about 15 young women who, as it turned out, had all been invited to the boat by Ronathan in the exact same scenario as herself.
“I was making conversation with some of the other girls and I was sort of asking how they knew him and one of them told me she knew him the same way I had. They’d been talking on Tinder and this was their first time meeting.
I was immediately angry.
I guess that’s a normal thing for him. He invites a bunch of girls for his friends so he can make sure they all hook up with someone.”
She then said that Adam later came over to her to ask why she seemed so grumpy and that’s when she got even more cross. She accused him of setting up some kind of bachelor boat and then taking his pick of whatever girl he wanted, to which he responded something like “what? Me? Naaahhh…” and then walked off.
She also threw one of his shoes overboard so, you know, there’s that. Later on, she found out that one of the girls on the boat had a friend who had a boat so they both made their daring escape.
To try and make amends, one of Ronathan’s friends texted Kayla which, to be honest, just looks like he was putting on the chirps…
Ronathan later posted this lovely and perfectly levelheaded message on Kayla’s Facebook wall so, rest assured, everything’s cool…
You know what that means? Like half of his friends are dentists. That’s pretty weird.
