Dating is a tricky game especially when you are meeting someone for the first time that you initially met online. Even so, there comes a point when you both decide to meet in person and that often takes place at a bar. Then, you are at the mercy of this stranger that you are only meeting for the first time.
The fact is, you don’t even know this person and you might find yourself in a situation where they are not who they portrayed themselves to be online because the truth is, you can’t trust anyone completely until you know them for real.
Now, there’s a place that you can go to meet such a person and know that you have the opportunity to stay safe at the same time. It’s a place in St. Petersburg, Florida called The Iberian Rooster and they developed a secret code for their lady customers who might need backup in such a situation.
You can go up to the bar and order an “Angel Shot”
At which point, the bartender will intervene.
Also, they are sure to encourage you to know that you are bothering them in any way by doing this. That is, no uncomfortable situation is too small to request this “Angel Shot”.
“Is your Tinder or Plenty of Fish date not who they said they were on their profile? Do you feel unsafe, or even just a bit weird? We’re here to help. Just go to the bar and order an angel shot.”
There are also other ways in which to order this shot to alert the staff to the severity of the situation and what type of intervention is necessary. Basically, they are there to help! This is refreshing for women who choose to meet strangers in public so that they can still feel safe and hopefully meet a nice man without having to order this shot.
However, if it goes wrong, you can get help fast and depending on how you order it, the bartender can escort you to your car or even call the police.
This will help out greatly if the situation is dangerous.
This is such a great idea!
Other bars are beginning to have these ‘codes’ for their female customers. Be sure to ask the bar that you are in if they provide this too!
