A woman has left the internet baffled after she shared how a man took her to an ‘embarrassing’ restaurant on their first date.
In a 6-minute video shared on TikTok, Monique Santos can be seen scoffing as her date got out of the vehicle and tried to open the door for her.
She then told the camera while locking the door: “He’s got me at The Cheesecake Factory.”
Her date knocked on the window and when she opened it, she said: “This is The Cheesecake Factory. This is a chain restaurant. Who takes someone that looks like this to a chain restaurant?”
He then asked if she wanted to talk about it before going back to the vehicle.
“So, you expect a man to go all out on the first date, is that right?” he said to which she replied: “You’re supposed to. When you take out a beautiful woman and you’re courting her – because I get courted – you’re supposed to take care of her, you’re supposed to cover her, you’re supposed to protect her, cherish her, treat her well, right?”
The man then agreed and said: “I went into the date with expectations for myself – to keep you safe, to respect you, to pay for your food, to pick you up – and just treat you like a gentleman [should]. Which I believe I have done.”
The man added that he also had certain expectations. “I expect her to be respectful too, I expect her to be cooperative.”
But things quickly escalated as the woman insisted that she has not been uncooperative. “I feel like I’m doing everything I’m supposed to do as a woman. I got myself all made up…”
“But there is nothing wrong with The Cheesecake Factory,” her date interjected, adding that he had to wait an hour for her.
“I’m thinking, okay, if we’re not there in the relationship to meet at your apartment then maybe we’re not ready in the relationship for such a nice, fancy restaurant – especially if I am paying for the whole thing,” he continued.
The woman then asked if there is another restaurant that that they could go to, adding: “You don’t understand. Look at me. I cannot go in The Cheesecake Factory. I will die. That’s embarrassing.”
The man then concluded that they were not right for each other so he would just drop her off at home, leaving the woman even more frantic.
The clip has been viewed more than 6 million times and thousands of social media users have shared their thoughts on the matter.
One person commented: “He’s right for doing that. He communicated properly, was respectful, and knows his worth. I also love the Cheesecake Factory… Lol.”
Another said: “Waiting an hour for a green dress and purple lipstick. What wrong with the Cheesecake Factory tho.”
A third added: “He seems so nice i would’ve been so hyped for the cheesecake factory.”
