Paige Hardy was terrified after meeting a guy on “the worst first date” — and was even more shocked to discover other women had had similar experiences with him
A woman has shared her experience of her “worst first date ever” after dating a man who gave her chills and was generally an “uninteresting” guy.
Paige Hardy, who is from the US, shared a video on TikTok detailing her date, which began when she was approached by a man in her college ethics class. reports the Daily Star.
The guy asked her if she was interested in getting to know him, but she was immediately met with a red flag when he then suggested that they go to his house on the first date instead of meeting somewhere in public.
In her video, she said: “My worst first date by far was when I was in college. It was the first day of class and I was in an ethics class and this boy came up to me after class and said, ‘Hey I’d like to take you out, I’d like to meet you.

“Red flag number one, we’re planning the date and he asked me to come over to his house and said he’d cook me dinner. I met him that day and I’m not really comfortable with it. I told him that I would rather go to a café or a bar.
“This guy gets angry and says, ‘You think I’m some kind of weirdo? How dare you?’ But I told him that’s a rule I stick to, so we ended up going to a coffee shop.”

She added: “He was incredibly uninteresting on the date. I asked him what his favorite restaurant is in his area, this guy is 20 years old and his favorite restaurant is McDonald’s.”
Things took a creepier turn when the man started asking Paige where she lived, and after she gave him the name of a large building complex near her college, he demanded to know exactly what apartment she lived in.
The woman gave him false information to protect herself and end the date – only for the man to text her the next day and get angry at her for “ignoring” him for hanging out with friends and not on checked her phone.
Paige then posted some of their texting interactions to a local feminist Facebook group, and was stunned to realize she’s not the first woman this man has approached in a similar way.
She said: “Turns out this guy is slipping in DMs from every single person in his film class who has a feminine-sounding name.
“Then a third girl said, ‘Oh my god, I see this guy in my apartment complex all the time, I thought he lived there’. But another girl said, ‘No, I see this guy in my apartment complex all the time ‘.” and she named hers.
“When I told my friend in ethics class, she said the man followed her home and molested her when she was going to the movies with her friends.”
The TikTok user claimed that 39 women on the Facebook page allegedly had a “strange experience” with the man, and Paige eventually alerted local authorities, who let her know they recognized the person of interest.
