The dating game can be rough, it really can. And it's a lesson that one woman found out the hard way when she ended up at a Taco Bell for a first date.
Hear her story for yourself below:
Elyse Myers shared her bizarre experience on her TikTok channel, responding to the question: "What is the worst date you've ever been on?"
The singer, who is now married - needless to say, to someone else - explained that that particular prize goes to a guy she had matched with online, who invited her out for dinner.
She said: "This man messages me out of the blue and he goes, 'I like your face, let's go get some food. I will drive us to the restaurant together'.
"I drove 45 minutes to his house. He's standing outside of that. He walks up to my car and he goes, 'I've lost my keys. Can you drive us there?' Should I have just left him right there and gone home? Yes. Did I? Absolutely not.
"We end up at a Taco Bell, which is fine. I'm, like, 'Dine or drive-thru?' and he's, like, 'Drive-thru'.
"And, like, great, he has a plan. We get to the speaker and he just leans over and goes, 'I would like 100 hardshell tacos. Thank you'."
Again, another red flag then rears its ugly head, with the date telling Elyse that he's 'forgotten his wallet', and so she will have to pay for the ludicrous amount of tacos. Which she does.
*In a separate video, she revealed that this set her back about $149 (£109), btw.
The couple then go back to the guy's home, where things get weirder still.
"We walk in to his dad on the couch and, like, he lives with his dad - it's fine," Elyse recalled.
"We walk past his dad and into the kitchen, and he just starts emptying the boxes of tacos, just releasing them onto the table. Puts two chairs at the table sits down and he just screams at the top of his lungs, 'Let's feast!'
"I am just calmly unwrap my taco and take a bite of it. We are eating hardshell tacos in complete silence. You can hear both of us chewing, it's absolute chaos.
"The dad walks up, grabs a taco - there's 100 of them we have so many to spare. He's eating over us, just standing, doesn't sit, stands right next to the table, crunches mouthfuls."
And still, somehow, it gets stranger.
Elyse concluded: "He just looks at me and he goes, 'Do you want to see my studio?'
"It was that moment that I decided this date was completely over or else I was going to be killed, 100 percent.
"I walk out with boxes of tacos in my purse, I look back and was, like. 'Thank you for this experience. You will never hear from me again'."
