A woman too terrified to go on a date has spoken out about her confidence issues and recalled the incident that changed her life forever.
The young lady in question revealed that her love life has been non-existent for two years ever since she went on a first date that turned into a disaster.
According to the woman, the man she met was “charming and funny” and the date went perfectly fine until she started suffering stomach pain and was forced to make multiple trips to the bathroom.
“While we were having drinks, my stomach started to feel a bit uncomfortable… I don’t know it was the nerves or something I’d eaten but I kept having to excuse myself to go to the bathroom, which wasn’t exactly the most romantic way to kick off the evening,” she wrote in a letter to author and columnist Jane Green as she asked for advice.
“Eventually my stomach settled – and I finally felt like things were going well. He walked me home at the end of the date after a few drinks and some dinner, and as we got to my front door, he went to give me a hug.
“Maybe it was the pressure of the hug, the relief that I’d survived the date… but I farted. Really loudly. So loudly that there was no way of hiding where it had come from or what it was. The sound still echoes in my ears years later.”
The anonymous lady went on to say that her fart left her horrified and that she immediately stormed inside her home and broke into tears after.
She also explained that the man messaged her the following day and told her he had a great time. She, however, was too embarrassed to reply and decided to ghost her date instead.
“To cut a long story short, I haven’t been able to go on a date since. Every time I even think about re-joining an app or letting a friend set me up, my mind goes back to that moment. That horrifying moment. And I’m so overcome with shame that I shut down,” she admitted.
After her story went viral, viewers advised the young lady to try her best to get over the “minor” incident because farting is something that all humans do.
They also urged the woman to try and imagine herself in her date’s shoes to see the incident from another perspective and hopefully realize that she was overreacting.
