TikTok user stance on how to approach first date divides internet

One woman’s stance on how to approach a first date has divided the internet, with heated debate online.

The debate started on TikTok after a woman said she decided to go on another date after not hearing from the person she was supposed to be on the original date with.

The woman passing by @viv.aboufaissal online, said: “We were supposed to go bowling and we made the plan three days ago but we haven’t spoken since and he hasn’t messaged me to confirm.

“We said 7 p.m. and it’s 2 p.m., so in my head it’s not happening.”

She said she ended up having a drink with another person she met on a dating app, revealing that she had the best time.

But then she asked what other people in her position would have done.

Another woman made her own video on the subject as a backup of the original video, answering Viv’s question.

The dating advice has sparked a discussion online.

The woman, known online as @bewellwithadielshared a similar view, saying that if there is no confirmation by the morning of, the date will not go ahead.

“If someone planned an entire date, made a reservation, and offered to pick me up, but didn’t text me to confirm the morning after, I assume the date was canceled,” she said.

“I’m not reaching out to confirm and I’m not letting him know I’m canceling.

“Even if he confirmed 24 hours ago, it’s a whole new day, and if he doesn’t get in touch to confirm, he wasn’t that interested to begin with.”

Many sided with the women on their views on how people should confirm first dates.

One of them said: “I agree, if it is not confirmed, it will be canceled. And I’m not going to resist either. I’ll let him know I’m not coming if he asks.”

“A simple hello, good morning are we still up for our date tonight? Is what is expected by the person who asked for the date,” added another.

Another added: “I do this with my friends too. I don’t spend hours preparing for someone to cancel.”

But not everyone agreed with the woman’s stance on dates.

“Regularly confirmed. If you need that reassurance, make sure you ask for it,” said one person.

Another person added: “If someone with ASD/ADHD. Once plans are made for me, they will be confirmed. I don’t get this.”

One said, “Communication is a two-way street. There’s nothing wrong with a woman communicating to confirm. It sets expectations.”

One man claimed that the woman had very specific tastes and he wished her luck in finding a man who would meet those expectations.
