In 2015, a UK-based woman named Michelle met a single dad on Tinder.
After a nice conversation online, they set up a time to meet for their very first date.
After a couple of drinks at a local pub, Michelle and her Tinder date moved things to a restaurant, where he bought her a nice dinner. Afterward, they took a stroll outside, arm in arm, and then he walked her to the train station to say good night.
They even shared a sweet kiss.
Michelle went home, excited about her date. She could tell it was successful and that the two had pretty good chemistry.
But the next day, Michelle was stunned when her date from the previous night sent her a text message. She wasn’t stunned by the fact that he texted her, I should say, but by what he said.
“Thanks for a wonderful evening last night,” his text began. “I really enjoyed your company and actually adore you. You’re cheeky and funny and just the sort of girl I would love to go out with if only my body and mind would let me. But I fear it won’t.”
The rest of the text is so disgraceful that Michelle decided to share it with the world in the form of an open letter — along with her amazing rebuttal. Her blog post went viral, and people everywhere applauded Michelle for her inspiring words to women everywhere.
