Woman sparks debate for going out on a date because she didn’t want to pay $3 for cheese on her burger
A woman who said she walked away on a date because she didn’t want to pay extra for cheese on his burger has sparked debate on social media.
In a video that amassed over six million views on TikTok after it was uploaded on Friday, the woman, identified as Dafna, said things were going well on their date up to that point.
“So we arrange to meet for dinner, we’re sitting in the restaurant and he seems very nice. No catfish,” she is quoted in the video.
“It’s going well and the waitress is coming over to take our order.”
When the waitress asked if they wanted extra cheese, she said her date asked, ‘Is that extra?'”
“And she’s like, ‘Yeah, it’s an extra $3.’ He said, ‘Okay, never mind.’”
“I’m like what the hell? I’m like okay I’m hungry I’ll get my branzino and see what happens.
“And he’s like, ‘Oh my god, you have to pay extra for everything these days,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah. It’s New York City.’”
As they ate their food, Ms. Dafna said she went to the washroom and paid for the food at the counter.
“I just paid and walked out of the restaurant,” she said.
“So I texted him and said, ‘The check is settled, you should have gotten the cheese.’
“Then I blocked him.”
Her video has received backlash from social media users, many of whom have called out their “extreme” reaction.
“It’s a bit tough. I just would never have met him again,” wrote one user.
“That seems extreme. I mean maybe he’s not always thrifty but he’s struggling right now like so many people,” said another comment.
Some users on Twitter also called her “overreacting”.
“I think kkkkk she overreacted lol. It’s not that he won’t pay for the food… that’s the principle. Lol paying $3 for cheese on a burger is crazy.”
Ms Dafna has addressed the backlash she has received in a separate video, saying the criticism is becoming personal.
“You really have to take it easy. Some people go through all my videos and say I’m ‘ugly’ and don’t deserve love.”
“That’s not okay,” she said.
She added that she has “a second date” with the same man he saw the video with and found it funny.
“I’m a student, I’m an unpaid intern, my rent is half my paycheck. I have a huge credit card debt. But I’m fine with it. Everything will be fine,” she said.
