A 38-year-old woman named Lucy Brown from London met a guy on Plenty  of Fish last week and they went on a date to a bar.  But when he  contacted her about a second date, she said she wasn't really  interested.

So the guy sent her a long text message . . . asking her to pay him $53 for her half of their first date.

Quote,  "I really [liked] you and saved up some money to take you on a nice  date.  As it didn't work out, I'd be grateful if you could send along  something to contribute for the drinks I spent on you thinking I'd at  least get to see you again."

And . . . Lucy actually sent him the  money.  She also donated the same amount to a donkey sanctuary which,  first of all, is apparently something that exists and, second of all, is  a not-so-subtle message that she thinks he's a jackass.
