“A few months ago, I matched with a guy on a dating app. Things seemed to be going well over chat, so we ended up meeting for a date.
As soon as we met, I had a bad feeling about him: not as if he was a creep but I just had a vibe we weren’t going to progress further. He seemed a bit off and not as friendly as he appeared online. I thought I might as well have a meal and chalk this down to experience if this doesn’t pan out.
