A woman has divided opinion by sharing her disgust over a man ordering a glass of milk while on a first date.
OK, the first thing to note on this front is that there’s totally nothing wrong with ordering a glass of milk.
The second thing to note is that it’s also totally fine to just not be right into something that someone does, particularly if you’re on a date with them.
Hey, we’ve all got stuff that gives us the ick, right?
Anyway, in this woman’s case, it’s that her date ordered a glass of milk when they were first meeting up.
Sharing her thoughts on Mumsnet, the woman said: "Went on a first date with a guy I met online last night, went out for dinner.
“When I got there I definitely found him attractive. However when it came to ordering drinks he ordered himself a glass of milk.”
She obviously wasn’t expecting that choice, describing it as a ‘turn off’.
The woman continued: "I've honestly never came across someone doing that in a restaurant and I just think it's really odd and really put me off him.
“I have tried to work out why this was such a turn off and I can't come up with a reason it just made me feel a bit yuck.”
Fair enough, some things just do make you feel like that.
She then turned to the community, asking where she was being unreasonable – AIBU, in the parlance of the website.
“It’s just so odd on a first date I feel,” she said.
Luckily, there’s a whole group of people who agree with her, describing the choice as ‘unusual’ and ‘weird’.
One said: “It’s childlike. Would put me off too.”
Another wrote: "I think it depends where you were and what you were eating - maybe with curry it isn't that odd, equally burger and milkshake is acceptable so milk isn't a massive step if he doesn't like the texture of a thick milkshake.
“Fancy restaurant having steak or pasta then milk is a bit weird!"
It certainly is.
However, others weren’t so sure, with one person commenting: "Wouldn't bother me. Better than ordering alcohol. Green flag from me!"
Another said: "Maybe he just prefers milk. I do too when at home, never ordered it with a meal so get why you might think it's odd but not the worst thing someone could do.
“It's only milk, he didn't order a pint of blood."
Well at least that’s something.
