A woman received some impromptu dating advice from a total stranger who passed her a note urging her to ‘run’ from the man she was with because he was revealing ‘too many red flags’.
‘I had coffee with a guy yesterday,’ she began her tweet, continuing: ‘When he went to the bathroom, the gay guy sitting behind me passed me this note.’
The note itself contained just eight words – but the warning in them was very clear. It read: ‘Too many red flags. Run. Be safe girl.’
Warning: A Twitter user was given a note by a stranger urging her to ‘run’ from the man she was on a date with, because he was showing ‘too many red flags’
Caution: The woman, known as Hadia S on Twitter, shared a picture of the note, which was written on the back of a CVS receipt, and it quickly went viral
Her tweet quickly went viral, racking up more than 33,000 retweets, as well as a host of comments from curious users, many of whom asked her to share more details about her date – and the so-called ‘red flags’ that prompted the stranger to pass her the note.
Hadia explained in several follow-up tweets that she had herself recognized the ‘red flags’ early on in the date, but she said that she never felt like she was in danger, so she kept chatting to the man – mainly because she wanted to ‘debate him’ on topics that they didn’t agree on.
One of those issues, she revealed, was rapper Da Baby – who came under furious criticism earlier this month for making homophobic comments. Although Hadia did not share her stance on the subject, she explained that she and her date ‘did not see eye to eye’ when it came to ‘the Da Baby situation’.
She then shared that the date ‘is a fan’ of controversial dating guru Kevin Samuels, who has been accused of encouraging men to make disparaging, and even violent, comments about women via his YouTube channel.
Hadia admitted that she had to ‘look up’ who Samuels was, but said that she was ‘immediately taken aback’ upon learning who her date was referring to.
‘I recognized the red flags, but I wasn’t in danger, so I stayed, because of course I had to debate him,’ she went on – before adding that the man behind her must have been ‘exhausted’ listening to her try and argue with her date.
Oh dear… After her initial tweet sparked a frenzy on the social media site, Hadia shared a few other details about the date
Alert: She said that she and her date ‘did not see eye to eye’ on rapper Da Baby, who sparked furious upset earlier this month after making homophobic comments
Done: Hadia reassured her followers that she never felt as though she was in danger – but said that she would not be accepting a second date with the man
‘I’m sure my guardian angel was exhausted and was like “B***H, LEAVE!”’ she joked.
Although Hadia reiterated that she had already spotted the red flags herself, she expressed her gratitude to the unnamed man who warned her about her date’s behavior, writing: ‘There were a few other GLARING red flags that I won’t mention, but don’t worry, I would have recognized them with or without the note.
‘But the note was greatly appreciated and added some laughs to my night. There won’t be a second date.’
Hadia’s follow-up tweets sparked a furious debate among other Twitter users, with some echoing the stranger’s warning, while some accused her of misjudging the man, simply because his ‘opinion didn’t align’ with her own.
‘So because he had his own opinion on people/subjects which didn’t directly align.. or better yet, comply, with yours, his personality strikes you as toxic?’ one user questioned.
However the majority of people agreed with Hadia’s opinion of her anonymous date, praising her for making the decision not to see him again.
‘RUN PLEASE he’s probably in a group chat rating you in a scale of 1-10,’ one wrote. ‘Kevin Samuel[s] fan is 100% a red flag.’
