A WOMAN on a terrible date with a dickhead is secretly hoping she is playing this well enough for a ghosting.
An hour into an awful date with Oliver O’Connor, Sophie Rodriguez already hopes he brutally cuts contact with her and blocks all her accounts, leaving her world without even a single trace of him.
Shaw said: “He sent his steak back to the kitchen, told me about his ex’s new boyfriend’s million-pound house and car, and the only question he asked me was ‘I suppose you work in an office?’ I’ve never wanted anyone to disappear without a trace more in my life.
“I don’t care when or how he ghosts me, but the sooner the better. He could leave between courses as long as he pays the bill. I’d be eternally grateful to the piece of shit.
“I’ve got to nudge him in the right direction. Bad table manners, mentioning I’m a feminist, dropping in that I’m on bail for drug offences. That should do it.
“Either that, or he’s exactly the kind of wanker who’d ghost you the same night you slept with him. Worth a thought.”
O’Connor said: “It was a real grind for the first hour and I was thinking of bailing, but when Eleanor said she’s high-maintenance, emotionally unstable and has daddy issues I decided she was a real keeper.”
