Brilio.net - Being on Tinder is fun but when the time comes for the moment of meeting in real life, it can get pretty awkward.
We’ve all been there: the date where all you want to do is get the hell out of here. Could be because the person doesn’t look like their pictures (why people keep on doing that??), or because you both don’t click, or because the other doesn’t stop talking about him/herself. Also simply because despite the nice chat you had over the last few days, he or she is not at all the person that you expected.
And the list goes on. There’s actually many reasons why it could go wrong and that’s why in those moments we all wish we were in a familiar place, where we knew people and could use excuses to leave immediately, but that’s often not the case…!
This bar “The Brickyard” in Saint Albans in United Kingdom found the perfect solution to this “Tinder problem”. They posted on Twitter and stick up a sign in the lady’s bathroom, offering to rescue girls from their hopeless rendezvous. The strategy simply consists of asking one of the staff’s member for rescue. Once aware of the situation, they will call a taxi or transport for the girl in need and make sure that she doesn’t get any trouble with the rejected candidate.

James Hanning, the owner of The Brickyard, explained that according to him, women were more often the ones feeling uncomfortable and willing to leave while on a Tinder date. “Dating thanks to an app is becoming more and more popular, we started wondering about women’s security during those dates and decide to set up the following system”.
The success of this system should quickly spread to others bars and it’s quite predictable that the “men saving option” is going to be offered too. Hanning already said that the male version of course of the rescue will soon exists at The Brickyard!
