In this modern dating world, Nikki shared the nightmare she experienced when her date send her back on an Uber because he didn't like how she was dressed.
Just when we thought we were moving forward to a better and more understanding world, stories like the one we're going to discuss today send us back to those days of backward absurdity. It only takes a couple of minutes on TikTok to discover that the dating world is still filled with lame people. Nikki Jabs, a 30-year-old woman, turned into the hip platform to share her nightmarish date story, one that has gotten millions of comments and views combined.
She had just started a relationship with a guy she met on a dating app. They had gone out on a couple of dates, and finally, she was meeting some of his friends and coworkers at a special event at his office. Long story short, the moment the guy saw her something seemed off, but he kept denying it. They even went to get some dinner before the event. So, when the time to go to the event came, this guy couldn't keep it any longer, he had a problem with the woman's outfit.
The guy thought she was not that too dressed for the event, and although he claim he felt bad about the entire situation, and even after Nikki offered to go change, things were already off. Eventually, Nikki got pissed and said she was going to go with what she was wearing or not going at all. The guy then said he was going to order a Uber and send her back to his house. And so he did. Naturally, for Nikki, it was all over. She went to this guy's home, took her stuff, and went home. Although later on, the guy tried to get her back, Nikki had had enough.
She also realized that this wasn't the first time this guy had commented on how she looked like. He started making some comments that then turned into small suggestions. At first, they seemed like compliments but these were disguising something else, an attempt to control who she was and how she looked like.
Besides the tea on that nightmarish dating story, for Nikki what mattered about sharing the story was helping other people identify these behaviors and other red flags we sometimes seem to miss.
"I hope they learn to recognize red flags early and find the courage to end a relationship before their partner’s behavior becomes emotionally or physically unsafe," she concluded.
The moral of the fable is that at the end of the day, no one, no matter who has the right to comment on your looks. Nikki's story is just one of millions out there, and most likely, we've experienced something similar coming from a partner, or parents, a friend, a co-worker, or basically anyone.
