Her video racked up almost six million views and a million likes.
The video starts with a shot of rain battering a windy New York street with the text: “When you accidentally go on a first date in a hurricane because you feel bad cancelling last minute and he wants to go.”

After the date she reappeared and delivered her verdict: “The date which was one single hour long in which he made me pay for myself when I trekked here in a literal hurricane — we walked outside and he said ‘yeah you’re right, we should’ve rescheduled’.”
The kicker is he lived only 10 blocks away — whereas she lives 80.
Her journey home was no better. She showed a clip of her pouring water out of her boot in a subway station before getting on a train that went past her stop. As she walked back home from the train she joked: “No man on earth has ever made a woman this wet.”
She continued: “You know, it’s moments like this when you really know whether you’re a Sex and the City kind of New York girl or you’re a Broad City kind of New York girl. Guess which one I am?”
When she finally got home she said: “Zero out of ten, do not recommend going on a date in a tornado slash hurricane.”
Her night wasn’t all bad though, as she topped the evening off with a margarita on the couch.
One commenter joked: “No first date is worth this.”
Another said: “They say dating in New York is hard but wow.”
Another TikTok user brought up what we were all thinking: “Nah first red flag is not him wanting to go somewhere that’s at least halfway for both of ya’ll.” [sic]
A day later, we got the update we were all waiting for.
