Bronte explained that she once made the decision to fly from Western Australia to Brisbane to meet a man she had been talking to for a while.
“We had been talking for about three or four months. I was like … I work for myself, I’ll take the time off,” he said, adding that the flight wasn’t cheap at $700 round trip.
“I get there, he doesn’t even come to greet me at the terminal. I paid for breakfast, I paid for drinks, I paid for dinner, it was his friend’s birthday, and I paid for dinner!” she laughed.
“He was buying his friends drinks… then he was going around calling me his ‘sugar mama’. I guess for me, it was the most epic failed date… ever.”

“She turned her body around and said, ‘Ugh. Why is everyone asking me this?’ I had had enough at that point and I said, “Listen. I’m going to bounce.” I finished my drink, grabbed my keys and left.
