Woman handed note in coffee shop warning about her date’s ‘red flags’

A woman explained how a chance encounter in a coffee shop left her gobsmacked – and re-considering her date.

After a year of lockdowns and Covid-19 restrictions many Brits are now venturing out to coffee shops and bars for first dates.

Singletons are looking for love up and down the country, but we all know that not every date goes well. And, it can be difficult to spot red flags and warning signs when you fancy someone…

Well, one man has been called a “hero” on social media after warning a woman that the man she was on a date with was not a good sort, reports the Mirror.

The lady was on a date in the seat next to the man and was handed a note by the bloke warning her away from the bloke she was drinking coffee with.

And, the woman, Hadia, opened up on social media about the experience – and posted a snap of the note he handed her when her date was in the loo.

The story quickly went viral on Twitter and people have praised the man for alerting Hadia when he felt like something was off.

Hadia posted: "I had coffee with a guy yesterday.

“When he went to the bathroom, the gay guy sitting behind me passed me this note."

The note said: "Too many red flags. Run. Be safe girl."

On Twitter, one person said: "I can't help but wonder how bright red those flags were for a complete stranger notice AND write a warning note. Big yikes."

Hadia replied: "As bright as my red nails.

"It honestly wasn’t THAT bad….until after he came out the bathroom.

“Everything he said after the note was a major red flag."

Another commenter said: "If I got that note I'd have immediately given him the ‘appreciate it’ head nod and ended the date early.

“Nobody is going to see a man's red flags faster than another man."

“Not to be dramatic but this advice could literally save your life,” added another.

While a woman said: “I once went on a drink date and the bartender was super nice to me and kind of rude to my date.

“I remembered wondering if that was a red flag. Turned out it was and he was right.”

While another wrote: "Not all girls are great at picking up on the signs – I've missed a few, so to have an outsider who is objective to the scenario notice these signs.

“It just may have been a genuine warning."
