This Week's Sign of the Downfall

This Week's Sign of the Downfall

Fable for one, please

Taylor Pare, 33, of Manhattan, thought she met someone “cute” via a dating app, so she agreed to meet for dinner at a local bistro. But after waiting long enough to figure out she’d been stood up, Taylor ordered $45 worth of food and left. A few days later, Taylor joined a Facebook group bashing local playboys, and she found multiple stories featuring the same app, bistro, and fake profile. After more digging, Taylor took to TikTok recently with her discovery: many restaurants in NYC use fake dating profiles to lure in guests because they’ll spend money even after being stood up. But hey… at least the catfish is free.
