It seems the quest to find love still comes with its trials and tribulations, with one woman opening up about a recent dating nightmare story that has stunned the internet.
Utsha Saha, who goes by the handle @shahutasaha online, took to TikTok to open up about the ordeal with her 13.4k followers.
She began by telling viewers: "I'm in shock and I need to tell people about what just happened."
Utsha went on to explain she was dressed to get dinner waiting for a man who was 'on his way' to come and pick her up.
However, half an hour before he was due to come get her, he sent her a pretty bizarre text message that, understandably, left the woman totally stunned.
She continued: "He goes, I kid you not word for word, 'All right, you shallow b*tch. Don't judge my car. I've had it since I was 18 and no one has a car in London."
Utsha highlighted the date would have only been their second time meeting, adding: "He is a 30-year-old plus man, has a normal career and we barely have a friendly relationship, you know, it's only our second time getting dinner together."
Admitting she barely uses 'cuss words' even with friends, the woman explained: "If we ever do playfully call each other b*tch, it's very, very, very few friends in-person and it's people that I'm very close with."
Adding that she has 'very little tolerance for cuss words' especially with men she goes out on dates with, Utsha revealed the message 'really threw [her] off'.
She then asked the man why he would call her that, adding that she told her younger brother about the situation when she was getting ready to which he suggested she cancel the date.
"I initially didn't feel like I could have just canceled because I felt bad that this person was on their way," she went on. "But then I thought to myself, 'You know what, like, this is not okay for me and these are my standards'.
"I don't want to get dinner with someone that can just call me that whenever they want."
And so, as the date arrived, Utsha let him know to which he then called her to complain, saying it was rude of her to 'intentionally' let him know after he'd already 'driven across the city'.
When she then explained she 'didn't know' how she was feeling and 'didn't realise how upset it made [her] feel' while being 'super respectful' - the man hung up on her.
Then, just 10 minutes later, he seemed to have changed his mind and sent Utsha a 'long a** apology'.
The woman concluded: "This is a grown man over 30 thinking it's okay to call a woman a b*tch before coming to pick her up for dinner.
"But you know what? When one door closes another opens because another sweet boy who is planning a date began texting me about the next date that he was planning for us, and moral of the story is don't be afraid to cut people off on the first go because what the hell?"
Utsha captioned the clip: "Still in shock that people like this exist."
The video has since gone viral after clocking up 4.5 million views on the platform alongside thousands of comments from people eager to share their reactions to the shocking story.
One TikTok user penned: "You dodged a bullet 100 per cent."
"Major crisis averted!" wrote a second, while a third chimed in: "You did the right thing!"
A fourth praised: "Good for you! Self respect is so important!"
And a final TikTok user echoed: "Good for you, we love to see women know their worth. That’s so not ok, ever."
