Dating is hard enough in a pandemic world but for one Chinese man, it was also expensive. A 29-year-old man went to a restaurant on a blind date that his mother helped arrange and not only met his date but 23 of her family members she brought along.
As they ate, the table filled up with expensive meals and alcohol, and then when the bill showed up, the man was given the bill by the staff. The bill totaled just under $3,000. He knew he couldn't afford it, so he ended up sneaking out of the restaurant and leaving the bill with his date and her family.
When asked why she brought her family members with her to the first date, the woman said: “I was testing whether the man who might potentially be my boyfriend would be generous enough to pay for all 25 people, including himself and myself.” She also feels as if she is a victim in this situation.
I think the big thing here should have been when everyone showed up she should have been clear with her expectations early on and given the date the opportunity to opt out.
No word on if there is a second date on the horizon but it probably doesnt look good.
