Man asks for £3.50 coffee money back after Tinder date goes disastrously

How much can a person really know about their Tinder date?

Do they look like the profile picture you were so eager to swipe right on? Did they really once fight a grizzly bear as their bio states? Are they the sort of person who will prove a terrible date and later message to demand you reimburse them for a £3.50 coffee?

If a recent dating horror story by 28-year-old Londoner Lauren Crouch (pictured) is anything to go by, don't rule out the latter being an issue on your next Tinder outing.

Writing on her blog No Bad Dates Just Good Stories, Islington-based 28-year-old Lauren Crouch said she met a guy outside her local Tube station, who made it immediately clear he didn’t drink and so suggested they go to Costa across the road.

From there the date only got worse, with said chap telling her he was actually waiting on an Ocado delivery, leading to an invitation to his flat to go and pick it up along with the regrettable phrase “Ocado and chill” – possibly the most middle class sleazy chat up line you’re ever likely to hear and a question there was only ever going to be one answer to: no.

Regardless, the man wasn’t deterred in his efforts, later messaging Laura to invite her on another date:

Credit where it's due, the man's a trier. But then this happened:

Ouch - someone doesn't take rejection lightly. Laura's response, saying she could donate to charity instead of paying him back for the coffee, was measured and fair to say the least.

He wasn't having it:

Probably a meal-for-one from Ocado.
