A woman has divided internet opinion after turning down an ice cream date for being the 'bare minimum'.
And come on... who doesn't love ice cream?
Well, this woman one man was dating apparently doesn't as she cancelled on him the second he mentioned ice cream.
A man named Vance took to the Tinder Reddit forum last week, where his rather unfortunate story garnered over 35,000 upvotes in just three days.
Captioning the post, he wrote: "I guess ice cream dates are considered a terrible idea nowadays," and included a screenshot of a text message between himself and an anonymous woman.
The text message started off pretty normal, with Vance confirming it was him after the pair seemingly exchanged numbers.
"Hope you’ve had a good day, I’m excited for tomorrow. I can pick you up but if you’re not comfortable with that we can just meet there," he started off.
"Idk why but l’m feeling like getting some ice cream in this hot weather lol."
To say the woman certainly didn't have the same craving is an understatement, with the suggestion from Vance bringing an end to the pair's dating plans.
"Sorry if this may come off as rude but I don’t do ice cream dates," she responded.
"I’m a 26 yo woman and a date like that seems like the absolute bare minimum for me. Meeting up would be a waste of both of our times since we probably don’t have the same vibe. Best wishes."
Vance later said that the woman blocked him on both text and Tinder shortly after the exchange, so she never saw his last message which simply read: "Cool."
And many have flocked to the comment section of the Reddit post, with people left divided.
One person on Vance's side wrote: "Someone who can't enjoy the little things in life. That's sad."
A second added: "If you get a date suggestion that you don’t like, the most reasonable response imo is to decline and counter it with a date suggestion of your own."
A third added that the woman had 'missed out' and that Vance would find someone to 'appreciate his ice cream date'.
On the other side of the debate, a fourth remarked: "You’re allowed to not go on a date if you think it’s low-effort."
While another said: "I mean, this is her boundary. She was upfront and direct about it. Didn’t waste your time. No red flags here.
"You might not like it, but she is well within her right to choose potential partner by amount of effort they put into date."
In another thread about to the situation, one person said that the woman was 'allowed to think an ice cream date isn’t fun or interesting or worth her time'.
