A Virginia woman known as Hadia S on social media went viral after she revealed that a stranger came up to her while she was on a date and passed her a note saying: “Run. Be safe girl.”
The story was posted by a Twitter user named “Hadia S,” who thought she was simply recounting her odd experience. According to the Virginia woman, she was on a coffee date and when her date excused himself to use the restroom, a man sitting behind her passed her the note written on the back of a CVS receipt.
“He gave up a CVS receipt to save you,” one Twitter user commented. “Not only did he risk his personal business exposed, he gave up thousands in coupons.”
Before locking her account, she recounted for those in question what the red flags were, which she described as differences in opinion regarding recent entertainment news controversies.
The woman said that she and her date did not see “eye to eye” on the issue of recent homophobic remarks made by rapper DaBaby, although she did not specify who on the date had each stance. She was also offended that her date supported YouTuber Kevin Samuels, a self-described “image consultant” who gives out rather aggressive dating advice for men seeking “the modern woman.”
Even after seeing the note, Hadia said that she decided to stay and debate her date, joking, “I’m sure my guardian angel was exhausted and was like “B***H, LEAVE!”
Hadia Decided Not to Run
Even though the woman did not get up and run when her date left to use the restroom, like her note-passer had advised, the events of the date did not give off any hints of real chemistry between the two. Hadia S wrote that the note was still “greatly appreciated and added some laughs to my night,” later confirming that “there won’t be a second date.”
“I can’t help but wonder how bright red those flags were for a complete stranger to notice AND write a warning note,” one commenter said, “Big yikes.”
She responded writing, “as bright as my red nails.”
Some followers were offended Hadia called her date a “gay guy,” and by her comments on public figures such as DaBaby and Kevin Samuels. She locked her account and hid the original Tweet.
“So because he had his own opinion on people/subjects which didn’t directly align.. or better yet, comply, with yours, his personality strikes you as toxic?” one detractor questioned. Most other commenters were less combative however, and genuinely entertained by Hadia’s story.
“I wish I’d had someone pass me a note like that when I was 18,” another woman wrote. “My whole life might have been different.” Hope she’s okay!
A similar situation went viral recently when a bartender in St. Petersburg, Fl., passed a woman on a date a note disguised as a receipt that read, “If this guy is bothering you, put your ponytail on your other shoulder, and I will have him removed. He’s giving me the creeps.”
It turned out that the man in question was indeed harassing the girl and her friends, and the bartender kicked him out.
Commenting on the post, a woman told a similar experience where she, “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,” she continued. “Turned out it was and he was right.”
