It's a big thing putting yourself out there when you are in the world of dating. 

Not only does it take courage but it also takes thick skin. Because let's be honest, it's slim pickings out there. 

One young woman who was brave enough to share her story on social media was left with the bill on a first date. 

In a video, Shania Nyoni shared that she went out for dinner with a guy she was chatting to, it was the first time they met in person. 

He left after dinner to withdraw money from the ATM to pay for their dinner bill. But sadly, he never came back. 

She sat there and finished her meal and had to be accompanied to the ATM by a staff member to withdraw the money to pay for the meal. 

There's a part of us that wants to know why she didn't just swipe, but there are some establishments that only accept cash payments.
