A woman has been slammed online after refusing to get out the car for a first date at The Cheesecake Factory.

Monique Santos, from Atlanta, took to TikTok to share the clip – but denied that she was the difficult diner involved.

The unnamed woman complained to her date that the chain restaurant was ’embarrassing’ before a bitter debate between the two ensued.

And other social media users were left infuriated by her attitude and did not hold back in the comments as they urged that her date had ‘dodged a bullet.’

In the controversial clip, which has so far been viewed more than 2.8 million times, the unnamed woman can be seen sitting in the passenger seat of a car.

Dressed in a plunging neon green dress, she stares directly at the camera from behind a pair of statements shades.

Her date can be heard in the background saying he will walk round to open her door but, as soon as he exits the car, she expresses her dismay.

The woman states: ‘He’s got me at The Cheesecake Factory.’

She locks the door, shakes her head and waggles her finger disapprovingly as her date appears outside her door.

He knocks and she eventually winds down the window before saying with disgust: ‘This is The Cheesecake Factory. This is a chain restaurant. 

‘Who takes someone that looks like this to a chain restaurant.’

The man is understandably perplexed but says he is happy to talk things through despite her filming their exchange. 

Her date revealed that he had made a reservation elsewhere but that an unforeseen delay meant they missed it - and so The Cheesecake Factory was the backup option (stock image)

She was left stunned when her date insisted on calling it a night before she muttered: 'I understand you gotta do what you gotta do'

She orders him to get back in the car before he asks: ‘So, you expect a man to go all out on the first date, is that right?’

To which, she responds with an air of condescension: ‘You’re supposed to. When you take out a beautiful woman and you’re courting her – because I get courted – you’re supposed to take care of her, you’re supposed to cover her, you’re supposed to protect her, cherish her, treat her well, right?’

He agrees, adding: ‘I went into the date with expectations for myself – to keep you safe, to respect you, to pay for your food, to pick you up – and just treat you like a gentleman [should]. Which I believe I have done.

‘I, on the other hand, have certain expectations for a girl I go out with on a first date. I expect her to be respectful too, I expect her to be cooperative.’ 

The woman repeatedly fixes her hair and makes it clear that she is unconvinced.

She replies: ‘I feel like I’m doing everything I’m supposed to do as a woman. I got myself all made up…’

Before she can finish her sentence, her date interjects: ‘But there is nothing wrong with The Cheesecake Factory.’

He then reveals that he had agreed to pick her up at 4pm but that she did not come down from her apartment for another hour without him being invited up to wait.

She justifies that she does not know him well enough yet, to which he bites back: ‘That’s why I’m saying, I’m thinking, okay, if we’re not there in the relationship to meet at your apartment then maybe we’re not ready in the relationship for such a nice, fancy restaurant – especially if I am paying for the whole thing.’

He reveals that he had made a reservation elsewhere but that the unforeseen delay meant they missed it – and so The Cheesecake Factory was the backup option.

The woman is undeterred however, as she questions: ‘Isn’t there another restaurant you can call that is equivalent to that? You don’t understand – look at me. I cannot go in The Cheesecake Factory. I will die. That’s embarrassing.’

The discussion raged on in the comments as other social media users slammed her as a prima donna and praised the man for his actions

Her exasperated date offers up: ‘Maybe we are not right for each other so respectfully I’m going to just drop you off at home.’

But the woman is less than impressed.

She begins: ‘Oh no he didn’t. So you just want to call it a night? Isn’t there some kind of compromise or something? Ladies, can you believe this?’

The dueling duo continue to bicker before the woman urges: ‘I understand that I was late, I understand that. I understand that I could have been a bit more cooperative.

‘You made some good points. That’s why I’m willing to compromise. Are you sure you want to go home?’

She is left stunned when her date insists on calling it a night before she mutters: ‘I understand you gotta do what you gotta do. I understand where you’re coming from.’

An awkward silence fills the car before the clip comes to an end.

But the discussion raged on in the comments as other social media users slammed her as a prima donna and praised the man for his actions. 

One wrote: ‘I like the Cheesecake Factory… Girl bye… He dodged a bullet… perfectly played.’

Another added: ‘He’s right for doing that. He communicated properly, was respectful, and knows his worth. I also love the Cheesecake Factory.’

And a third simply said: ‘If audacity was a person.’

The video was later shared to Reddit on a sub thread titled ‘I’m The Main Character’ where the poster wrote: ‘I am flabbergasted. Poor guy.’
