It crosses everyone's mind when their date is in the bathroom for longer than 0.2 seconds: "Did they leave?"
In the case of this guy's date: Yes, they left.
A guy posted on "Am I The A**hole?" seeking absolution for having left a date in the middle without letting the person know. They live in a country that still has indoor smoking sections in restaurants, and when he arrived at the date, he wasn't thinking with his lungs.
Yeah it sounds bad but hear me out first please. A few days ago I had a first date with someone I met on Tinder. We met at a restaurant for lunch and when we walked in they asked us if we wanted a smoking or non smoking space. Out of habit I said non smoking, but she said she wanted smoking. We are in a country that is about to ban all smoking indoors so most restaurants have already made the switch, so even getting the option surprised me and I just assumed she didn’t smoke for some reason.
Important to note that I hate the smell of smoking to the point where I will start sneezing uncontrollably if it’s too much. I think it’s just a disgusting habit.
So anyway we look at each other and I tell her I don’t smoke, she says well I do, but she is also pretty hot, so that was the tie breaker. Yeah I’m an idiot.
