Dating is a terrifying prospect. What do you say, what do you order? What do you do with your hands, what do you wear? Will they even turn up? But, it is so much harder if you’ve been out of it for a while. Especially with modern date apps such as Tinder, it’s becoming easier than ever to get left behind, single and alone. That’s what happened to this American dad.
“When you’re married for 22 years and then you get divorced, it’s like ‘what do you do?'” Jeff Saville divorced from his children’s’ mother a while ago, and he’s trying to get back into the dating scene. He had arranged a date for that evening, but he faced the same struggle many of us do before a big event. What should he wear?
However, he knew his daughter would help him out. So, he sent two snaps of his potential outfits to his 19-year-old Carli. She gave him some advice and sent him on his way, confidence aglow. However, she thought their interaction was pretty cute, so she posted the screenshots of their messages to Twitter.
“I just thought that my friends and [my dad’s] friends would think it was funny and cute, but then everyone thought it was funny and cute,” said Carli. “And I was like ‘alright, this is going viral…'”
She didn’t expect such a big reaction to her dad’s date outfits, but the response has been overwhelming. Unfortunately, Jeff’s date that night stood him up, but he since received plenty of offers on Twitter! Who knows, maybe he’ll meet the new Mrs Saville on Twitter. He’ll have to thank Carli for that!
