Woman Ditches Date After He Mistakenly Sends Text About Her Meant for Friends

A woman was left with little choice but to cancel her date plans after the man she was due to meet accidentally sent her a text message criticizing her.

The man, called Danny, had apparently intended to send the text to a friend but in a momentary lapse of concentration ended up sending it to the very person he was talking about.

It proved disastrous to say the least. The woman, called Meag, took to TikTok to share the details behind the toe-curlingly awkward exchange. Posting under the handle uhmeagzing, she shared a screenshot of their text interactions.

Things had initially gone well between the pair. "Let's meet there this time. Is that ok?"" Meag wrote. "Totally understand," Danny replied, adding: "I gotta prove I'm not going to murder you I guess."

Things took a turn, however, when Danny proceeded to then send a picture of Meag's dating profile picture to her by mistake, along with another text that read: "My date tomorrow and do not laugh" along with a laughing face emoji.

"She's nice and got jokes but defiantly blah," he added in the text.

In any case, Meag was quick to shut down the back and forth, telling followers she texted Danny the next day saying: "yeah I'm gonna have to pass."

She noted that Danny "never said a thing" in response. At the time of writing, Meag's video has been viewed 7.3 million times on TikTok, with users flocking to condemn the man over his message.

Some were quick to highlight Danny's spelling mistake. "Never date anyone that spells definitely as defiantly," Maddy55878 wrote. "I did for way longer than I should've." Idkbridget agreed: "Never sweat anyone who doesn't know the difference between definitely and defiantly."

Elsewhere, Tilitsbackwards commented: "I'm so confused because you're pretty and conventionally attractive" with Madisonwatkins firing back: "He's blah." Saharflick, meanwhile, pondered: "Do men even like women?" Sara Hoy suggested darker forces were at play. "I feel like he did this on purpose as a power move he got from a misogynistic podcast," she wrote. "You're pretty."

Newsweek has contacted uhmeagzing for comment.

This isn't the first time a woman has received a text meant for someone else from a date. Earlier in November, Molly Hair went viral on TikTok after she was accidentally sent a message by a man she was due to meet for a first date. "Waiting on this c**t," the text read. "I took a pinch for confidence." She quickly canceled the planned meet-up.

According to a February 2020 Pew Research report, 60 percent of female users aged 18 to 34 said they continued to be contacted by someone via one of these apps or sites despite telling them they were not interested.

Meanwhile, 57 percent reported being sent an unsolicited sexually explicit message or image during interactions on one of these platforms.

Hinge also hit the social media headlines earlier in November after a woman shared snippets of the messages she had been receiving from male admirers using the dating apps new audio function. It was eye-opening to say the least.
