A Macleod man has squandered a hard-earned Tinder date by taking the unlucky lady to Greensborough Lanes for a few frames of 10 pin bowling. Local love doctors 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. He was kind of nice apart from his tone deaf venue choice.”

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