“I just had the worst first date of my life,” Megan said in disbelief.
“I met this guy on a dating app, and I feel like by all reasonable measures, he was pretty much just your average guy.
“Nothing in his profile could have prepared me for what was to come.”

The 22-year-old said that, when she showed up to the restaurant, she spotted Matthew standing outside waiting for her.
“I recognise him from his profile so at least he’s not a catfish,” she said.
“We say hi to each other and then he’s just like, ‘Okay let’s go inside and grab our table.’
“He made a reservation so the table was ready right when we got there, so I thought that was nice.”
Just as the pair sat down, Megan noticed a random woman walking up to their table.

“We’re really only sitting there for like maybe two minutes before this girl walks up, who I thought at the time was the waitress. But no, no… And you already know what’s coming,” she said.
“She kind of just looks at me funny and then introduces herself just casually.
“As she’s sitting down, the next girl walks up. So all the girls are just introducing each other and I’m like, ‘What the f*** is going on?’
“He’s just sitting there like it’s completely fine.”
Four’s a crowd
Megan said one of the girls then asked her how she knew Matthew.
“I’m like, ‘Oh, I actually don’t really know him, this is our first date’,” Megan responded to the girl.
“So naturally my next question is, ‘Oh, well, how do you know Matthew?’ She looks me dead in the eyes and goes (to Matthew), ‘I thought this was our first date’.”
It suddenly dawned on Megan that Matthew had invited all three women on the same date without telling them.
“I just thought these other two girls were friends that he knew that were around so he invited them,” Megan said.
“But no, he’d scheduled this date at the same time with all three of us to meet at this place.
“And why, you might ask? My date invited myself, along with two other women, so that he could speed up the process of finding the perfect three way.
“We all left.”

Her video has been viewed more than 520,000 times – with many furious over the man’s ploy.
“I’m just so confused on how he thought this would ACTUALLY WORK,” one said.
Another joked: “This guy thinks he’s the bachelor creating his own group date.”
One suggested: “The audacity is getting bolder.”
Another said: “I’m so glad I married the first guy I dated – dating seems so scary as an adult.”
One shared: “Absolutely not. I hope he’s single forever.”
While one added: “Girl I am crying because the dating pool is an absolute dumpster fire.”
