Woman Says She Sends Herself Anonymous Drinks On First Dates

A woman has revealed how she often sends herself drinks while on a date to make it look like she’s got a secret admirer, with social media users saying her idea is ‘really smart’. 


Podcaster and social media star Sofia Franklyn (@sofiafranklyn0) recently shared a video on TikTok, captioning the post: "Men love some healthy competition!" 

In the clip, she explained how she’ll make her date think she has other ‘options’ by going to the bar and asking the staff to send over a drink from a supposed admirer. 


Franklyn wrote: "When I 'go to the bathroom' and pay the bartender to send me an 'anonymous' shot so my date remembers I have options." 

I mean, whether it works or not, at the very least you've now got a shot to down, which is no bad thing.

In the comments, she also confessed how she has other tactics too, adding: "I have def sent myself flowers a time or two. 


"Lmaaaoooo this can work in many situations. The world is your oyster ladies." 

Her video has since racked up 2.8 million views, more than 270,000 likes and hundreds of comments - with many people saying they were ‘taking notes’. 

“Oh but wait a minute that’s really smart,” one TikToker wrote. 

Another called her an ‘icon’, while a third said: “Honestly? Queen move.” 


Others admitted they’d pulled similar stunts in the past, one saying: “I went to the bar early once and asked a guy to come up and tell me how pretty I was during the date.”

Another said it happened to them for real - meaning they were legitimately sent a drink rather than ordering one on the sly - saying it was 'THE BEST feeling ever' as their date 'was left shaking'.

Some people weren’t quite so convinced by the idea, saying they didn’t feel they could go through the awkwardness of asking a bartender to help. 


One said: “How is this not embarrassing to ask for omg I don’t think I could."

Another asked: "Why is this not considered toxic??" 

But others argued that there was no shame in it whatsoever, with several bartenders coming forward to say they’d be more than happy to join in. 

One TikTok user replied: “As a bartender, I love when women do s*** like this! And I’m more than happy to do it.” 


Another added: “As long as you tip we honestly dgaf.”
