Fans cannot get over how awkward things got during a date on Netflix's new series, Dating Around.
Netflix recently debuted their new Original Series, Dating Around, which sees one person go on five consecutive dates; to find out who their ideal partner is.
However, some fans are still wincing after cultures clashed during Gurki's blind date.
Gurki's date questioned how he could ever trust her, after he began to say that "you're letting pieces of yourself go" when you enter a relationship.
When Gurki questioned it, he began to pick at her previous relationships; arguing why she had already been divorced, and quizzed Gurki on why she agreed to marry a man despite having doubts.
"You ruined eight years of your life," he said. "You lied to him and yourself". After he questioned how anyone could ever trust her, he walked off, leaving Gurki alone on her date.
Viewers of the series were quick to criticise her blind date, saying he was horrible, and that they assumed he always perceived himself as correct.
The moment he just up and walked away when she was like "okay, so we're obviously not seeing each other again so--" and he was already gone. He was only interested in someone who would listen to him babble and stay sweet while he walked all over her!!!!— 🔮🌈 Readings: Closed 🌈🔮 (@SomewhatOccult) February 17, 2019
He kept interrupting her. He wasn’t listening to understanding but to respond. He refused to listen to her at all. Wow!! No wonder he’s still single.— Jennifer Maughan (@jen_maughan25) February 16, 2019
This isn’t a “culture clash” this is a man speaking over a woman. He’s not trying to have a conversation, he’s talking down to her and just telling her why she’s wrong and he’s right. & then calling HER defensive when she hasn’t even been able to finish a single sentence.— •aviana• (@avianap) February 17, 2019
