A man who discovered text messages exposing the real reason a girl had agreed to a date with him hatched a plan to give her a taste of her own medicine.
After meeting on a lifeguard certification course, the man (who we’ll call Will) said he thought the pair had ‘hit it off’ and exchanged numbers and social media details.
They chatted for a few weeks before he asked her out to see a movie, which she accepted, leading to a few more ‘casual dates’.
His hints to make things more serious were snubbed, but they continued to hang out for a while before a mutual friend who had taken the same course got in touch to warn him as to what was really going on.
The friend said he felt bad for the Will because ‘she often does this to other dudes’, and passed on a screenshot of messages between them.
After asking if she and Will were going out, she replied: “Not really but as long as he keeps paying for everything, I’ll let him take me out more,” with a laughing face, before adding: “Girl’s gotta eat.”
Armed with the new information, Will said: “After seeing this, I asked her to go on a nice date with me to a hibachi grill restaurant.
“I got the most expensive thing they had and so did she. We both got fancy ice cream and multiple refills on drinks.
“I complimented her a lot and smiled consistently, before getting up to go to the bathroom and leaving. I was also her ride.
“About 45 minutes after I get furious texts from her saying that she had to have her mum come down and pay for it because she didn’t have the money on her and that we were done.
“I know it’s not a lot and it sucks because I thought she was actually into me but it felt pretty nice leaving her that way.”
After posting about his master plan on Reddit , many were quick to applaud the revenge stunt.
One commented: “As a woman and just a person in general, she’s awful for leading you on and she completely deserved this.
“Unfortunately she’ll probably try to spin it to make you look bad.”
A second wrote: “Congrats on dodging the bullet.”
Another pointed out: “No one is talking about the bro that sent the screenshot. What a good guy!”
