A LIFESTYLE influencer has revealed her worst first date ever, running a red light when she came out.
Despite fearing for her life in his car, she said that wasn’t even the worst part of the date.
Kay Bertina (@kaybertina) commemorated the date in a video shared with over 40,000 TikTok followers.
“This man almost blew my mind on our date,” she began, telling the story while prepping her skin.
She explained that she doesn’t usually let men pick her up on first dates because she doesn’t want them to know where she lives.
After meeting the date at an event, the two exchanged numbers and he offered to pick her up on a date.
“The most beautiful Mercedes I have ever seen. I’ve never seen a Mercedes like this before. It’s like one of those cars that there are only five of,” she said.
Her date also brought her a large bouquet of red roses, which she was pleasantly surprised by.
“Everything about the date is great, it’s only after the date that it just goes downhill from there,” she said.
“We get in the car, he starts going the opposite direction of my apartment and Rodeo Drive, and I think actually it’s that direction and he’s like, ‘Oh, I know, I want to go that direction,'” she said .
“The exact reason why I don’t like driving on the first date,” she added.
The date then entered their own address into the GPS and invited her to see a movie, which worried Kay.
“Not that I have a choice, so whatever, this man is driving like the cops are after him, the light is red before we get to the intersection and he’s like, ‘Yeah, I just don’t like to wait ‘” she recalls.
When the two arrived at his home, Kay was uncomfortable watching the film.
“I make sure I’m lying down so he doesn’t have a seat next to me,” she said.
To her shock, the two talk during the film: “He says the most racist thing to me and doesn’t even realize it,” she said.
Her date was curious about Kay’s origins: “What are you mixed with?” he asked.
When he found out she was black, he was shocked: “What? I can’t believe you’re all black, you’re so lucky you don’t have those features,” he said.
Kay was disgusted by the racist comments: “Mind you, I have black features and I’m black and we’re beautiful,” she said.
People used the comments to express their relief that the content creator was able to return home safe and sound to tell the story.
“You are so brave going out on someone’s first date please be careful,” said one commenter.
“OMG! I’m glad you’re doing well,” said another.
