Imgur user phillyalex had a bad date that ended with him losing his beloved sunglasses to a femme fatale. Here's the story in his own words:

Okay, so. Last summer, I met this girl at a bar. We hit it off, I end up going back to her place, whatever. She gives me her number before I leave and I hit her up to hang out again about a week later. I had gone to a football game earlier that day and then later met up with her at a friend's house before walking to a bar to see a band play. It was a sunny Saturday day game and I was wearing sunglasses, but by the time I met up with her, it's about 7pm and the sun was going down. So on the way to the bar, I asked her to hold my sunglasses in her purse for me. When we get to the bar, I see a few of my friends and I start introducing her while we order drinks. She turns to me and says she's going to go outside real quick to make a phone call and she'll be right back. She never comes back. Which is fine, I wasn't that into her anyway. But what was not fine was that she left with my sunglasses. So over the past year, I've been desperately trying to get my sunglasses back from her with very little success. That was until last week when I finally made a breakthrough... Here it is from the beginning.
