If you’re looking online for love or even just a dinner partner in the Los Angeles area, be careful or you might unwittingly get stuck with the bill.
Two women at different restaurants in Pasadena were allegedly victims of “dine-and-dash” dating by someone they met online, according to news reports.
Pasadena police told ABC News “there is an ongoing investigation into [the] activities” of a man named Paul Guadalupe Gonzales, 45, of Pasadena.
ABC News has tried repeatedly to contact Gonzales by phone but has so far been unable to reach him.."[/font]

How did she get "Stuck" with the $130 bill, Did she not eat anything?

She Got "Stuck" with his portion on the Bill, She would/should pay for her own meal,

Or being Fair she should pay for his half the time, and he should pay for her's half the time.

Just because she is a woman, does not entitle her to always get the "Free" meal on the date.

I would pay my half, sure, but in this situation I think the women were stuck with his bill, too. Because he ran out.


This situation is interesting to me because I used to dine out with a group of women friends who would show up, then say "oh I don't have any money, will you pay for me" or say they forgot their wallet. I stopped going out with them. I think a lot of people want to dine in restaurants but they can't afford it. They need to stay home and make a sandwich. I don't feel sorry for them.

But it makes for a better story if they post the $130 bill. It is a news story, but exaggerated as usual. She got stuck with his portion of the bill. Maybe he didn't like her? Might not have been a scam from the start and ended up that way. I would say if someone does that, they aren't worth knowing, so maybe she got off cheap in a way.

Maybe the news story was exaggerated. She was still a victim if she got stuck with a portion of someone else's bill. Have you seen the man's pic? He's very unattractive, to say the least.

Funny to see this the other way around for once. What a scandal.

I can't imagine anyone saying, in the abstract, this man is unattractive. Handsome is as handsome does, and we get all that, but if you just look at his pic he'd be considered by our culture to be very good-looking.

And that's why he keeps managing to get women to go out with him. If he weren't physically attractive, he wouldn't be able to keep getting women who don't know him to go out with him.

And I think that's why it's taken so long for this story to come out, and why so many women are silent. If you go out with some ugly buffoon and he walks the check, you complain.

If you fall for a guy's flattery because he's handsome and smooth, it's embarrassing. Because that's kind of on you.

I think this is actually kind of funny. This is the kind of thing men have been upset at women for doing throughout the ages - ordering lobster and steak, expensive appetizers, desserts, and then bu bye.

What he's doing is not that different from that.

This story reminds me of the one where a guy sent a restaurant bill to his date when she stopped responding to him.
