A Michigan woman has gone viral on TikTok after revealing that she was left heartbroken when her date sent her home in an Uber because he didn’t like her outfit.
“I spent 40 minutes on my makeup to meet his friends and co-workers at a grand opening for the retail company he works for,” said @nikki.jabs, who recently met Greg on a dating app.
Jabs — who posts regularly about her “dating chronicles” on the social media platform — wore a black, long-sleeved crop top and pink, paper-bag trousers for the event.
However, when she went to pick Greg up, he did not approve of the ensemble.
“He was too embarrassed to be seen with me in this outfit, so he sent me home in an Uber and went to the opening without me,” the crushed woman told her followers.
“I’m just so sad because I spent so much time trying to look pretty and he sent me home in an Uber. Who does that? He sent me home with a stranger on a Friday night,” she said, holding back tears in a follow-up video on TikTok, which has been viewed about 7 million times.
“He wasn’t comfortable with me around his coworkers, but was comfortable sending me home with a stranger in an Uber,” Jabs said, adding that the creep had previously told her not to wear makeup or heels on dates.
The woman also shared images of herself in the Uber.
“I said, ‘I’m wearing this to the function or going home.’ He said, ‘Can I call you an Uber?’” she said.
“Currently smiling but also trying not to cry,” the TikToker wrote in the overlay text as the Taylor Swift song “All Too Well” played in the background — with the lyrics, “And you were tossing me the car keys. F— the patriarchy.”
In another video, Jabs explained how his behavior had been getting slowly but progressively more troubling.
“It all started with little comments here and there over the last couple of weeks, like, ‘why are you wearing heels? I like it when you wear tennis shoes. Why are you wearing so much makeup? I like it when you’re natural,’” she said.
Many users expressed their support for the rejected woman.
“There’s going to be an apology and begging. Please don’t listen to him, it’s only going to get worse. You’re beautiful and deserve so much more!” one said.
“Remember: This is him in the beginning. This is him on his best behavior. Run,” another said.
Jabs said she got the message loud and clear.
“Yup! I ran,” she said, adding that she now lives in her van with her loyal cat.
“I’m glad I got out after only three weeks and not three years,” she said.
