A Watsonia man has squandered a hard-earned Tinder date by taking the unlucky lady to Greensborough Lanes for a few frames of ten pin bowling. Local lotharios have called the man a “pin head” (pun intended) for working so hard to get a date in the first place, and then ruining it by choosing such an unromantic venue.

The woman, who was too embarrassed to be named, told The Watsonia Bugle, “at first I thought it was kind of quaint and quirky, but once we got there it was just terrible. After we’d bowled a few frames, he asked me if I’d like to go next door to that pool hall for a drink. I was like, ‘ah, no thanks’ and then asked him to drive me home. He wasn’t much of a looker, but I don’t know, if he’d taken me somewhere decent, we might’ve done some hand stuff in the car on the way home.”

The man was unavailable for comment when contacted by The Watsonia Bugle.
