Woman shuts down guy who wanted $5 back for coffee date

We’ve all had dates from hell but how many people have been asked to “pay back” a date who they’ve rejected — even if it’s just $5 for a cup of coffee?

Dear guys this is not the way to deal with rejection.  Read on.

It happened to one U.K. woman Lauren Crouch as chronicled on her dating blog No Bad Dates, Just Good Stories.

In a blog post published Thursday, Crouch wrote about a Tinder date gone terribly wrong, when a guy she just wasn’t feeling demanded that she pay him back the £3.50 (approximately $5.32) he spent on her coffee. Seriously, dude?

Crouch explains that she and the unnamed man met near a train station, and he suggested they grab coffee. After “25 minutes of ‘normal’ conversation” the man then asked Crouch, “What would you say if I offered to cook you dinner?… I only ask because I’ve got an Ocado delivery coming tonight.”

Naturally, Crouch wasn’t too keen on going back to the home of someone she barely knew, so she declined, despite his persistent attempts to get her to say yes. The two said their goodbyes, and what followed was a text exchange too good (and ridiculous) not to post here.

Consider this an instructional guide on how to not handle rejection:
